Been in malta for many years and tried several Indian restaurants...Shiva's was fantastic. Food was delicious with each individual curry dish looking and tasting very different. Fresh ingredients and superb Dahl and fluffy parathas. We had a young baby and they were very accommodating.. If you have a family, go early as it gets very busy and the restaurant is small so not easy for other guests with pushchairs and highchairs but definitely worth going and loved loved loved the food.

After having read so many reviews we went there expecting to have some good food. But unfortunately were disappointed. There are better places to go. Ordered a Sweet Lassi which was ok but in such a small glass felt like it was for a baby. Prices aren't particularly cheap and to get such miniscule portions is shameful really. Being a vegetarian you would expect the cooking to be done in such a way that there is no cross contamination but all the food smelled like it was fried using the same oil, yuck!! Horrible. There are better places in Malta. Avoid it if you have other choices.

Restaurant was very quiet on arrival but it was only 7pm. Food was of great quality and a just right sized portions. My wife asked for something not on the menu and this no problem. All in all a great experience and will eat their again when next back in Malta.

We cannot fault this restaurant... the friendly helpful management and staff, the excellent delicious food, the delightful atmosphere. We currently live in Italy and our main motivation for visiting Malta is to eat at The Shiva!! ... and we hope to return very soon.

We were walking past and decided we wanted Indian food. The place was packed which was unusual at the time of year for the other restaurants we'd been.We went in on chance and the very helpful man managed to create a table for us. The food was sublime and the service and ambience second to none.We will return next time for sure!
