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
"We went and had a meal in here on Saturday 4th August. We had a lovely meal .The staff were plesent and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I can not say how good the food was. I have been living in Aberystwyth for 11yrs and walk past it most days. I will be going in more often now.,and will be taken friends and relatives with me next time."
"Definitely 5* rating. This was the best Indian food that I’ve tasted for many years. Totally looked after from the moment we arrived. Highly recommended."
"The Shilam Tandoori Indian Restaurant next to the railway station in Aberystwyth is ideal for a group meal or family get together. A wide range of authentic Indian meals and side dishes at reasonable prices is available with an excellent drink choice. The waiter service is particularly good and it is best to book, especially on Fridays or Saturdays. Takeaway meals are also available at the same high standard."
"Got to be the most tastey curry in a long time, will definitely be ordering again. Well done, lads!"
