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
"Had a coffee whilst waiting. We were sat at a table with a drink, popadums & dips whilst waiting for our takeaway order. Staff so friendly & very polite. When we got home our food was amazing. The best curry we’ve ever had. Definitely going back. Annette & family x"
"Have had a couple of great take aways when I've come to visit my boyfriend at Aberystwyth uni. Always great food"
"Got to be the most tastey curry in a long time, will definitely be ordering again. Well done, lads!"
"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."
"THE most delicious Indian meal- really delicious, and delivered on time by a charming and courteous delivery driver. I cannot praise the quality of the meal highly enough."
