I am often not a fan of Indian cuisine. Anyone who has read my reviews knows the terminology I apply. This place is different. It is the second time we have eaten here and it is not surprising that it is rated near the top of Matlock restaurants (though it is some miles from Matlock). We had the Sunday buffet;... More

We had a lovely meal at The Shalimar last night - we were a party of 10, celebrating two birthdays, staff were very helpful and accommodating, the food was excellent quality, piping hot & speedy service - we were even treated to a birthday cake.

Extensive menu, excellent service from efficient friendly staff. Tasteful pleasant decor spotlessly clean. Situated beside the A6 with plenty of parking. On top of all this the food was superb.

We came to this restaurant after tiring of modern British cuisine and we are delighted that we did. It far exceeded the Indian food we encounter in California. Tonight we had the chicken biryani, wine masala, and garlic chili chicken, as well as delicious peshwari nan. I'd recommend all, as well as the very friendly service. Waiter Ali was particularly...

Your custom is valued and we thank you for your continued visits. Shak must have really tried hard to convince you to try an alternative dish to your usual, but as always he was proven right in his choice. Your excellent feedback has been relayed to our staff with special thanks to Shak. We look forward to welcoming you again... More

My wife and I visited on a weekday evening. The service was very friendly and efficient, food was very good, and it's clear that the staff try their best to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. The food was very tasty and the restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere too, so we cannot fault it.

The service was excellent and there was alot of choice on the menu. We had starters, mains, extras and drinks which came to £25 per head, very slightly more expensive than other indians in the area, but worth it. It will definately be going back.
