I love it here. When eating in, the service is always delightful and the food is good. Takeaway service can be a little slow but that doesn't put us off!

Spent a pleasant evening with my hubby. The service was good. Food was very good especially nan breads. The let down was the chips. French fries are for McDonald's only!!! They were over cooked more like crisps which spoilt my meal. Rice and curry very tasty. Overall a nice meal but avoid chips.

Visited the restaurant for dinner. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was not the the best Indian food I have tasted, but it was very edible. Would I eat here again, probably yes. The menu select teas good, as was the service and surroundings.

Today me and my friends decided to go to Shilam Indian Restaurant in Aberystwyth. We were here for the weekend participating in a geography field trip. We were excited for our food but were left disappointed. We arrived approximately 19:30 but didn't receive our food until 21:30 which is a ridiculous amount of waiting time. Following receiving our food the... More

I visited on a Saturday evening with a friend. The restaurant was not very busy. It took over 25 mins to ask us what we wanted to drink and even longer to take our food order. When the drinks finally arrived the order was wrong and then we had to wait even longer. We both had starters which were quite... More

Single meal and starter. Starter was good portion and on the table in 10mins. Main though was 35min after the starter. Place wasn't even busy. No more than 12 to 15 heads in there. Good food need to brush up service time. Waiters were pleasant enough and food was good so would go back. Hopefully just an off night.

Firstly, the waiter couldn't make his mind up what table we should sit at, we finally sat down where the table wasn't clean and rice left on the table. The waiter gently knocked it on the floor, then walked off. Another waiter came over to us and asked what we like to order and walked off before taking the order... More

Visited on a freezing January night when the restaurant heating system had broken down! The staff did their best and gave us an individual heater which just about took the chill off. Worth it though, the staff were warm and friendly and the food was hot! Worth a visit, especially for train travellers.
