We have eaten at the Shalimar for many years. We dined there again while attending the 2014 Ann Arbor Art Fair. We are happy to report that our dinner was once more a very pleasant experience. Service is attentive but not overbearing. The food was just as excellent as it has always been. We appreciate this consistency in a restaurant!

In town for a quick medical appointment, my traveling companion and I window shopped along the eclectic Kerrytown neighborhood west of the University of Michigan. Our visit was between the end of spring semester and the beginning of summer school, so the sidewalks were pretty empty. We chose the Shalimar Restaurant entirely on a whim, and were glad we did....

Shalimar makes some of the best Indian food I've had! Their service is also good...they are quite quick. I particularly liked the Chicken Korma.

Haven't been to this restaurant in a few years. Service used to be slow and somewhat unfriendly. Improvements on both levels! Waiter was very nice and attentive. Food was great....love the Bindhi! Very glad I gave it another try. Will definitely return again soon.

New to Indian food but the service, food, and experience were great. Must try the lamb! The rice was cooked perfectly and the nana bread (please excuse misspellings) tasted fantastic. The menu was reasonably priced and the meats were all seasoned nicely.

A favorite for many years with some of the best North Indian cuisine around. We were concerned the quality of food and service would dip with the departure of the long-time manager to start his own delightful restaurant. Happily this is not the case---everything we had was as wonderful as ever in this popular, friendly venue.

Okay-ish average Indian food. There was nothing exotic about it, but at the heart of Ann Arbor downtown, this is the only Indian food joint. So there is nothing to complain! Service was OK.

Shalimar always has great quality, varied menu, good food. For a special treat go when they have the buffet.
