Went during a quiet period and really liked the atmosphere. The food is really good and tastes fresh. It has a really homemade feel to it. It is a bit pricey, but worth it. I've been to other Indian restaurants but the food didn't taste quite as good as here. I also ordered take out from here before but it's... More

I, too, am pleased that the Shalimar is back. They have been sorely missed. On September 14, 2014, took the standard buffet. There is a reasonable choice of both hot and cold food, including soup and salad. However, the outstanding feature of the buffet is the quality of the cooking. In addition, when the cook noticed that I was avoiding... More

If in the region of the Sherbrooke and looking for a different kind of meal well you should take time to visite the Shalimar. Not tons of choices for food since it is a buffet BUT all of the choices are excellent. You have to appreciate SPICY food though since everything or almost everything is picanté. Service was excellent, divided... More

After a devastating fire and a Herculean effort to have a new restaurant built in time for the holiday season, Shalimar is back with their Wed - Friday buffet lunch and Saturday/Sunday dinners. The food is delicious, the ambiance is delightful (a little bigger than the old place). It is the only Indian restaurant in the Sherbrooke area and we... More

At last, the Shalimar has reopens. The place looks a little bit larger than the original. We were there just before Christmas. The food is tasty. The portions are just as you made it, since it is a buffet. The selection is not very wide but all tasty. The service is ok. We will go back because I am a... More

There is an old Spanish saying "En el país de los ciegos, el tuerto es rey", which translates to "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king". Well, this also applies to this restaurant, as it is the only Indian restaurant in the area. Compared with many of the ones found in Montreal, it just does not... More

We were looking forward to eating here. When we arrived we discovered that it had recently burned to the ground. It is being rebuilt. Not sure when it will re-open.

My daughter and I seek out Indian restaurants wherever we travel. This seems to be the only Indian restaurant in or near Sherbrooke and was recommended to us by friends in the area. The restaurant is a small freestanding bright yellow building with outdoor patio seating. Inside was pleasant. Staff speak English and are friendly and accommodating. When we arrived... More
