I had not visited the Shalimar for 2 or 3 years but I decided to try it again on the back if the excellent tripadvisor reviews. It was ok but nothing special. The service was good but the food was average not special.

During our visit when an older review on here suggests the restaurant was busy and customers had to wait to be seated it was actually only half full! So what's going off there??

From start to finish the staff, food and service were incrediable. Nothing was too much trouble. They helped with the menu choices and the service was very quick. I have already booked to go for Chistmas dinner too.
