“On Par”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

This branch of the Shanikas name is on par with their other restaurant which we frequent often located in Berwick. Whether having take-away or dining in the result is the same sport on food. love the Ray Special, along with the Beef Salad or the Pork mmmmm

“Wonderful food and service”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

My husband and I have eaten at Shanika's Viale' both with our friend from California on his annual visits and for a romantic dinner for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We have always found the staff to be extremely efficient and the food 10/10. Our last visit was in March of this year and we will continue to visit with Restaurant in future.

“Always reliable.”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We have been eating here for years and the last time I was thinking that it should go to print ! This is our "go to" place for a quick meal any Friday evening. You know if you get in at 5.45pm you can have a G+T in your hand within 5 minutes and you are full, content ,and back in the car within an hour ! Easy as . The service is excellent ; food is ALWAYS beautifully cooked , fresh and tasty , - reliable -and served up like you are the first person to have ever walked into the place and they are delighted to see you.! . Also , its not going to break the bank. Every time we have eaten at Viale it is almost full by the time we are leaving so probably best to book.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

The first visit to Shanikas Viale, Pakenham - took my husband for a birthday lunch and was not disappointed. Service was first class as was the food. Varied and interesting menu and good wine list. Pleasant atmosphere. No negatives. Will definitely be going back.

“In Pakenham you will not find a better restaurant”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

I often eat at Shanika's Viale. If you are lucky enough to go there when Nigel is the chief you will be spoiled rotten. If he happens to be recovering you will still have one of the best meals ever and will enjoy the special service and the excess of pleasant people and laughter.
