If I lived closed to The Shalimar I'd eat out more often. For reasons, see the other 5 star reviews below.

We visited the Shalimar on the recommendation of our B&B hosts at Fold Farm in Beeley. What a fantastic recommendation.!! I have a number of food allergies which normally makes Indian food a major problem. Not so at the Shalimar, when we booked, the wonderful waiter suggested a number of ingredients which he offered to cook just for me. That... More

My friend and I had a superb meal last night at The Shalimar, the food and service is consistently outstanding and the waiters make you feel so welcome with attention to detail, nothing is to much trouble. The layout and decor is excellent and the chairs are very comfortable which all adds to a lovely experience.

We ate an excellent meal here tonight, smart venue with lovely touches. This restaurant improves each time we eat here. The staff are smart and courteous, the tableware is good quality and modern, the décor is excellent - all which adds to the experience. The food surpasses any other restaurant in the area and would compete most favourably with fashionable... More

The Shalimar had been highly recommended by our host and we had seen rave reviews so decided to have a take-away for an 18th Birthday. There was a slight hiccup with delivery but the rest of the order was quickly sent out with apologies beer. As usual I overdid the order but the food was wonderful and I just wish... More

We have just stayed in Darley Dale for a fortnight's holiday. We made two visits to the Shalimar and were very impressed with the attentive service and quality of the food.

I was scrolling through TripAdvisor this morning and noticed the two negative reviews for the Shalimar. I realised these girls were the ones sat on the patio with their dog on their knee when I was there on Wednesday evening. I was surprised at this but as they were sat outside it didn't interfere with anyone inside the restaurant. One... More

My boyfriend and I chose to visit The Shalimar based on the excellent reviews on here, they managed to squeeze us in at short notice on Saturday evening and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is not huge but spacious, tables have plenty of room around them which is great both for being served and giving you a sense of... More
