Excellent Indian cuisine in Rice village – I just ate at Shiva for lunch. Boy, was it a great meal or what ! The buffet was EXCELLENT. The food was remarkable. Me and three of my other friends ate here. We all agreed that Shiva is the ultimate place for indian food. The chicken curry, the lamb curry and the spinach with cheese cubes were made to perfection. The bread was nice and hot and served to the table. The service was prompt and efficient. The price was just under $10.

That is very moderate for the quality and variety, not to mention the terrific location. I am impressed,

BAD! – just ok food that wasnt even cheap. just not worth the price. The waiters were extremely rude. Refused to refill water even after requesting them to do so! Go there to spoil your mood.

good food and great ambience – Always loved Shiva's food and ambience. Have been a frequent eater at both the Rice Village and Sugar land location. I work in the Medical Center area, but live in the suburbs. Recently we had guests over from Canada and I took them to Shiva's Sugar land location. Everyone enjoyed the food, specially the Rogan Ghosh and Ghosh Shahi Korma.

I wanted to say that the comment posted about Shiva being small and comparing the Mantra's to other restaurants only tells any customer how desperate the individual is to promote Mantra. It is very sad to see this kind of tactics.

In my experience Shiva offers good food, great ambience and friendly pleasant atmosphere.

O.K Food – We love to eat out. The food was just not tasty (too blend ) & the atmosphere was very dull. Anytime we pay $100 for 4-5 people we expect good food & great ambience. The service is a usual as any other indian restaurant. Finally we have indian restaurants in Sugarland. I guess we were comparing Shiva to the other new indian restaurant ( Mantra of Sugarland not Katy ). Well there was no comparison. Mantra in sugarland is the best indian Restaurant our family have been too as we love there decor, ambience & food. We had zero problem of paying $100 for4-5 people. We wish the indian restaurants in Houston can at least spend some money in Interior & then charge us accordingly. Look at India's, Bombay Brasserie, gourmet India it looks so old yet they still charge high. Anyway we tried twice to Shiva but now my family wants us to stick with Mantras of Sugarland.

Excellent Food, delicious dessrts :love their rice pudding – Some people and food touch our souls and Shiva has such a magical touch.Their kind hospitality and delicious food signifies the tradition in fine Indian dining. The soul touching Indian music played in the background makes me want to sit and enjoy each of the songs for the whole evening..The friendly smile from the Naan chef and the fluffy nans he cooks for us compliments each other. Pramod the manager is always pleasant and gives us a feeling of warmth each time we step into the restaurant. We love Shiva and their delicious food. Good luck on their venture at Sugar land .

Shiva offers the best Indian food in town – I enjoy any kind of good food and Shiva's delicious menu offers Indian cuisine at its best. After reading positive reviews about Shiva and hearing praises from friends in Houston I sought out this restaurant’s lunch buffet. The restaurant is tucked away in Rice Village close to Kirby and the Medical Center by Rice University. Parking can be a problem in the Rice Village area.

The buffet was very flavorful and done right. The dishes of chicken & lamb were great. However, there was only one rice dish . The service was attentive and the price of the buffet was good. . Overall this restaurant is a good choice for lunch and a sit down dinner.

Good North Indian Food – Located in the Rice Village, Shiva is a treat in an area known for diverse cuisines. They offer daily lunch buffet presenting both vegetarian and non-vegetarian entrees. Their menu is quite large and offers plenty for both those that are experienced with Indian food and also offerings for the less adventurous. Travelling from the cold weather of Alaska to Houston’s warm weather, we wanted to have the taste of India in its authentic form. The menu offers many of the age-old Indian favorites that myself and my wife longed for. Popular items include Chicken tikka masala, lamb Roghan josh, Bhaingan Bhartha and Gobi aloo. Rice pudding was the best. Healthy, tasty and fresh food at a reasonable price is hard to find. Shiva surely has it all.

Good food,great price and service - Shiva is the place – Being an individual with taste to different cuisine and valuing their authenticity I have visited various restaurants. Indian food being one of my favorite I have visited many Indian restaurants in Houston and other states, but I have had the homely feeling and mouth watering taste only at Shiva. Be it their Rice Village location or Sugar land location food is always authentic, flavorful and delicious. I have always loved their Chicken Korma from the Rice village location. Recently I had my birthday party catered from their Sugar land location, I received many compliments for the food and the Mehti mattar paneer topped it all. Any one who does not like vegtable, must try the vegeterian dishes at Shiva and believe it or not will learn to love the vegetable diet. The wait staff was been attentive and very helpful in picking out the menu. The added advantage is the buffet where I could try many dishes at a very reasonable price.
