Service was very slow, sat down at table & they only offered us the drinks menu for first 20 mins or so, had to ask for food menu.
When food eventually came out the lamb that came with the rogan josh was well over cooked, could hardly chew it, I had a salmon tikka dish which sounded lovely on the menu(£10.95), but when it came out it looked like something you could have ordered down your local pub, I'm sure they deep fat fried the salmon because it was swimming in fat, made my stomach churn trying to eat it, so don't bother with that! We ordered a keema naan too which didn't come out with our food, so i asked a waiter to sort it out, but never saw him again so no naan for us. Got the bill & found the naan on the bill, so got them to take it off. Advised another waiter to tell the chef that salmon was rubbish & that I couldn't eat it, but having watched him take the dishes into the kitchen he then re-appeared empty handed & carried on clearing other people's tables, I'm sure he would have made a mental note to tell the chef after closing time!! Not!

I have eaten at the four main Indian establishments in Aberystwyth and would say to eat in the Light of Asia (Abers original Indian on Eastgate street) is the best. Take away has to be the Agra on North Parade. The Agra has the best food but people keep walking through the restaurant to get their meals and you feel constantly disturbed. The Shilam isneither good nor bad. They do a good value Dinner buffet, but go early!

Met some friends here for a Friday night curry. Of all the restaurants in Aber, this is the most consistent. Food excellent as usual - have not had a duff meal here yet, and as a local, eat here fairly regularly). Very busy, but service extremely friendly and attentive. Tried some new dishes as fed up ordering the same Chicken Tikka Masala and Kurma (both very good, though). Tried a Tikka Masala Chat - nicely spiced without being hot. My friends had the Green Chicken Masala with green chillies. Very tatsy too, though medium hot spiced. I like the way you canrelax over a meal here, and never feel that you're being rushed because they want the table. Highly recommended....

Probably the best Indian (Bangladeshi) in Aber. Excellent value lunchtime buffet, consistently tasty and fresh. Friendly service. Have not been disappointed yet.
