We hosted our son's first birthday party at Shiva's recently. We had about 45 people at the party including 8 kids. The food was outstanding. I would highly recommend the gulab jamun and Malai kofta. However, the service was below average. The food was served...More

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've been to Shiva's numerous times and each time the service ranges from non-existent to standing over your shoulder. One time we got up and left after waiting almost an hour for service. The food is good - samosas are tasty and crunchy. They are...More
