First opened in Mid Wales in 1979, the Shilam has developed into a highly successful restaurant and takeaway, with an excellent reputation for the finest South Asian cuisine.
Shilam is well-known for our wide selection of dishes originating from the Southern Indian subcontinent. From popular and well-known favourites to home-cooked dishes steeped in culture and family history, Shilam has something for everyone.
In 2003 the Shilam expanded to Aberystwyth, thus offing this special dining experience from the Montgomeryshire hills to the Ceredigion coast.
What Our Diners Say
"Visited on a Saturday night, delicious food and good service. Our waiter was very helpful and food came in good time and was tasty. Visited with children and it is child friendly too. We were a group of 5 and all enjoyed the food there. Nice atmosohere in the restaurant, a good place for a family meal. Will be visiting again next time i am in Aberyswyth."

"Have had a couple of great take aways when I've come to visit my boyfriend at Aberystwyth uni. Always great food"
"We booked from afar for family celebration meal after graduation. A warm welcome was found with cheerful service and just the right time to peruse their expansive menu. The dishes we selected were across the spice spectrum of mild to very hot. The dishes were amazing and flavoursome. We found the spices were nicely balanced allowing you to enjoy the fully rounded flavour of the dishes accompanied by a good range of rices and naan breads."
"Simply fresh, tasty and perfect! Their own pickles plus usual with perfect popadums and their Handi Chicken is special - the Bhindi Bhagi add on is so frech and a must as far as I'm concerned - I rarely give 5 stars! Well done Shilam!"
