Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I am surprised reading some reviews on Shavans. We have eaten here many times. The last being last Saturday night. The meals were so tasty. Your choice how mild or how hot you want it. The staff were so attentive. The manager couldn't do enough...for us. His suggestion for us to try the Cheese naan was a hit, as usually have garlic naan . The atmosphere is really nice and the place is so clean.More

On our previous visit we were disappointed. Maybe it was an off night in the kitchen. 2nd time even worse, burnt naan, wrong orders, forced to change table half way through the meal. Uncaring Manager. Never ever again.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions and enjoyed it, so decided to celebrate a birthday dinner there. So disappointed! The food had little flavour, lacking spice and salt. We don't like super hot curries, but we at least like our food to...have some flavour. I could cook better myself.More

Ordered through Uber eats and the food was absolutely disgusting. No salt, paste or spices at all. It was meant to be a tandooi chicken but seemed and tastes like a steamed chicken. Not the first time happening!

We have had good food from here previously, but recently we had a far from positive experience. Was told we could get a refund for a cold $200 order that they admitted sat in a car for 1.15hrs, then didn't honour that. Said they told...us the food had to go back with the delivery driver in order to get the refunds, guests confirm that that wasn't said as we had had the phone on loudspeaker due to the food still not being there 2hrs after ordering. Delivery driver had left straight away, my missus called the restaurant immediately afterwards and on top of not stating it had to go back with him, they didnt send him back. Food had been in an Aldi cool bag and not a proper food transport bag so little wonder it was coldMore

We had dinner here on a cold evening . Booked ahead to make sure we got a table . Restaurant warm and cosy , which we very much appreciated. Had a choice of a banquet for two however we ordered a number of dishes to...share , including butter chicken and beef massaman curry , naan bread and rice. All so very fresh and tasty. Parking available out the front as well as around the back. Well worth a visit and can cater for a good size groupMore

I ordered takeaway from this restaurant rather late on Anzac day. I had tried other Indian restaurants in my area - all closed. I am very glad I did as the food was fantastic!!! The manager/owner of the restaurant called me after I placed the...order and advised me that his delivery driver had already left for the night, and that he would be delivering it himself, or if I minded that the delivery might be a little later than I had previously been promised. I was hungry, craving curry - what more can I say. I got my curry, I got to meet the owner, who wasn't actually that late at all! Now I have a new favourite Indian restaurant in my area. WIN WINMore

Had a really good meal here with some friends. Good service and for four people a price of around $100 which is hard to beat. You don't have to go into the inner suburbs to enjoy a good Indian meal, it was there in Pakenham.

Nothing remarkable, decent spicy food and service, fair price. Waitress disappeared towards the end of the meal and had to go looking for her to order the bill.

Just two weeks back from India and I had a craving for Indian Food and a real Masala Tea. It's been a while since I've been to this particular Indian restaurant. Service really is fantastic (rating based on that), treat you like a high classed...restarant. But I'm afraid the food was ordinary and when I asked for a Masala tea I was given a tea bag in a pot of water............ It wasn't even a real Masala tea, I was so disappointed. My sons lassie was so coloured that he went home with a yellow tongue. Lassies tasted nothing like the lassies on the streets of India. So I will have to continue on my hunt for the real thing.More
