We are regulars at this Mountain View restaurant near the theater. Always have a great meal - butter chicken, tandoori lamb, seafood curry (my favorite). Love the nan bread. Great service. Wonderful pre-theater dinner place.

We recently hosted our wedding anniversary party at Shiva's and I have to say that their food, service and decor was just fantastic. We booked the place almost 6 months ago when the party room was a real mess and so I was a little...More

I dropped by for dinner on a lark as I walked by, and was very glad that I did. The food was excellent and very plentiful. Come with a hearty appetite. I had the full meal option and it was enough for two people. The...More
