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.

"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.
