Have been here a few times now, l know the price will be somewhat expensive. However, happy to pay the price as each time(4 times in past 2 years) the food has been excellent. And each visit have ordered a different dish. L have however noted, disappointingly that the serves have become smaller.

Not many places will cook something from scratch to cater for allergies. Shanikas has always accomadated my allergies and have been so lovely to deal with. Not to mention the meals are so fresh and made from top quality produce.

We had tea here with family and were quite impressed. It's an Italian restaurant. The restaurant was lovely and clean. The staff were exceptional and the food was "WOW" absolutely delicious. They give large portions and the sweets, oh my, soo delicious. The wine menu is very good also.
