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.

Everything we ordered at Shalimar was perfect. We took the chicken masala, makhni, korma all of which were amazing. We also took the shrimp curry, mixed grill and eggplant and all were perfect. For desert we took the golab jaman, and the kolfi and was to die for. The restaurant is a bit pricy but worth it

I'd only had Indian food a few times, so was a bit hesitant about eating here, but it was an excellent place to eat. The restaurant was packed, but we only had to wait 5 min. to be seated. The restaurant seemed to have a nice ambiance, but unfortunately we were seated in the basement, which wasn't very nice. The... More
