Thanks for getting our order right and not being too over priced but sorry to say our take away was not nice - we eat Indian often - and the food just didn't hit the mark.

Disappointed. . Very watery sauce, six pieces of meat per meal, flavor was ok but way over priced for what it was.

This BYO restaurant is well located and the food was very good. Serving sizes were adequate but not very generous. The rice servings were small and we needed to order additional rice and bread to bulk out the meal. For a small meal for two and we took a bottle of wine, it cost us $68.... not good value. Much...

Been to this restaurant before and have always been satisfied today though what a real let down. I ordered a chicken tikka masala and a butter chicken for my son both came out and tasted as if someone had spilt sugar in it could not eat it when I complained the lady asked if I would like something else so...

We have been to Mooloolaba 6 times in 15 years, and always end up as regulars at Shalimar. The beer is very cold, the dishes tasty and good portions, the naan delightful. Service in this family restaurant is very cheerful and attentive. Recommended for sure.

Diagonally opposite the Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club this restaurant is a prime location to cater for the masses who swarm to the beach on summer weekends and during holiday periods. We had dined in here about 2-3 years ago with large family and it was really tasty and enjoyable. Well things have changed for the worse. We were up... More
