I recently went to Shiva for lunch with my 2 year old, and had a very horrible experience! I am ashamed to say there are restaurants with such attitude... We were both very hungry and were looking to seat quickly and grab the buffet. Even though there was an empty table, they wouldn't seat me -- the reasons given were: oh well, i cannot seat you on this table your kid is going to make a mess, and main traffic goes here so i cannot give this table to you ... i was shocked at how i was treated... they actually sent me back.
If you want to be discriminated for one reason or the other, go here .....
We had dinner at Shiva's Indian Cusine, in Moutain View, Ca, last night (Sunday).
We will never return to this restuarant again, we were very disappointed with the service, food and the prices.
Unorganized and inefficient. Rude, incompetent staff, cold, burnt food, and only one inexperienced waiter serving the entire restrant (10-15 tables).
We waited 1 hour for our food to arrive, the waiter kept on forgetting to bring us our beverages, etc.
They do charge an arm and a leg for thier food, but don't expect to get good service nor good food.
After all, the owners are cheap stingy Indians, one should not have high expectations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are plenty other resturants that we will take our business to.

Hopeless place , rude hostess and equally bad quality food. We were asked repeatedly even before being seated whether we will be done in 1 hour ? I mean whats the hurry??? Then even before we could finish our starters our main course was put on the table and the waitress left ... By the time we were ready to eat our dinner it was all cold and the naan was like rubber...... Top all this with exorbitant prices and you think why did i come here? I would never recommend shiva's to anyone .

Very standard Indian fare with high prices. There is nothing unique or spectacular about Shivas, they actually do a buffet at lunch! $15 for average size orders of CTM and butter chicken that don't even come with any naan. I can't believe people pay these prices. Plus the service is only slightly better than what you'd find at a hole in the wall place.

We celebrated my parents 60th birthdays (same night) at Shiva's. It was a surprise, and the staff was great at keeping everything flowing accordingly. The staff was very respectful, wishing my parents a happy birthday. They not only brought out the cake that I supplied but also included their own house desserts on the house. Then they began to sing! While the food my seem a little overpriced, I think it's worth it given the ambience and service. A side note, the food is flavored from a different part of India, not often found commonly in other restaurants.
