We tried this again a couple of times recently when we needed to have dinner downtown. Prompt very friendly service, food quite tasty and better than we recalled. Punjabi cook, my favorite region for Indian food. Pleasant decor and music. However a few days after our latest dinner the county restaurant inspection report listed a large number of food safety...

I have enjoyed the food here many times and it has always been fresh and delicious. The last time I ate inside, however, I was disappointed by how dirty our tablecloth was. There was old food sticking to the cloth that hung down and touched my leg. I had to position my napkin so the dirty old food didn't touch... More

I haven't eaten in the restaurant, only gotten take-out. Since it takes 45 minutes to get a take-out order I can assume that the wait for tables is long. With 2 young kids, take-out is the way to go. Very yummy food! I enjoyed the paneer and goat cheese patties for appetizer, the chicken tikka masala, and many of the... More

Good Indian food away from home. Bit spicy but to like of Indian people like me. Only thing need improvement is seating..it is too congested and have lot of noise. You can't talk to each other.

For my wife's birthday we stopped at Shalimar for dinner. We totally enjoyed our experience. She had Saag Paneer and I had Chicken Tikka Masala on the servers recommendation. We were NOT disappointed! Of course it was topped off with their naan. Are water glasses never were empty and they way we drink water that's unusual. We will return.

Shalimar is a true oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown Ann Arbor. Its unassuming brown exterior truly hides the culinary delights that lie beyond the doors. The best Indian cuisine in Ann Arbor!

I have never written a bad review for any restaurant but Shalimar is just so awful that I feel I should warn others. Each of the dishes we ordered was horrible (undercooked, too much turmeric and no other spices). The service was also really bad with the waiter first misunderstanding what I said and then arguing about it. So my... More

Out of all Indian restaurants my wife and I have visited, Shalimar tops. The food is delicious, the service is good and the prices are attractive. My wife and I love Indian food so whenever we can, we head to Shalimar. The meal portions are good and we normally are taking dinner home. The restaurant caters to both Vegetarian and... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed a nice lunch here. We sat outside since the weather was beautiful. There was a fair amount of traffic and road noise, but that is just what you get on Main St. in Ann Arbor. We shared an appetizer, each ordered an entree and naan. Our meals were very good and we were satisfied... More
