We had a delicious meal, staff were very nice and attentive. Thought the price was very good, lovely large portions. Very pleased to have a doggy bag, which they prepared for us, and enjoyed it the next day. Thank you all, will definitely come back again.

I have been here on many occasions, most recently for a girls night out with work colleagues. You are always greeted at the door and offered a drink in the lounge area, then taken to your table which is laid out beautifully. The menu has such a wide selection for all tastes. The staff are very friendly and we were... More

We went here for a family birthday. Made the reservation via their web-site. Upon arrival, shown straight to table by attentive staff. Good menu & high standard of food. Reasonable prices considering the generous portion sizes.

We were staying nearby and ordered for Saturday night. Very efficient staff helpful in the phone delivery arrived within agreed time. Two great curry's with plenty of meat and therefore good value for money.

After seeing management responses to other 'negative' feedback I will keep this short. £10.95 for the basic Chicken Tikka Masala (without any extras) is simply too much !!

Warmly greeted as soon as we arrived. Advice on the dishes, spoilt for choice. Both of us chose the same main, but one was 'spiced up', gorgeous. Chose Indian desserts suggested by the waiter, finished off the meal beautifully. Attention of the staff faultless, with no suggestion of being rushed at all, very relaxing. Bild

A very good experience at The Shalimar. The dishes we ordered were unique and had real depth of flavour. The service was brilliant. Very attentive and went out of their way to help. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone and will definitely be back when next in the area.
