Enjoyable

A quiet night customer wise, but we were allowed to relax and take our time. Chicken tandoori was spicy and succulent Chicken madras was outstanding! Only negative was the thin and not overly garlicky naan bread.

Had a set menu $30 each for apertiser, entrée, main and desert. Food was absolutely beautiful but the best part was the Mango Ice Cream for dessert.. Best ever. Would highly recommend.

We walked into Shalimar for a quick dinner, the service was quick and friendly. Vindaloo and chicken curry were tasty and plentiful, cheese and garlic naan was lovely and complimented the dishes. Vindaloo was full f flavour . Good casual dinner. Wine list was cheap and cheerful. We enjoyed the dinner and the service.

Service seriously lacking on the night we visited. Shortage of staff ? Food: Daal - good Chicken tikka masala .... Very sweet !! Good Lord ...skip the sugar. Please!! Naan : average Rice : plain boiled ... Could be a bit more exciting Lamb chops: kids liked those Would I go back ? Not really ... Nothing really stood out.

Went for dinner and the service was excellent, the food delicious and the price very reasonable. Ordered the beef korma and lamb vindaloo, tandoori chicken skewers and saffron rice. The meat was tender, the flavours delicious and the rice fluffy everything you would expect from a decent indian restaurant. The only negative I would comment on was I being a... More

We started with the chicken tikka entree. Beautiful tender chicken and great tikka flavour. For our main we had the chilli chicken. This was a superb meal and a generous portion. The naan bread was great as well. Highly recommended to eat in or takeaway.
