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
"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!"
"Got to be the most tastey curry in a long time, will definitely be ordering again. Well done, lads!"
