We had visited this hotel on Saturday, 9th August 2014. The staff was very rude without any courtesy.The quantity in each portion was very less due to the reason that the depth of the plates was very less due to which though the quantity looks OK but in actually it's very less. Normally for a family of 4 ( two... More

I can in by myself last week and enjoyed a masala paneer. The serving size was a bit on the small side, but the super fresh naan made up for it as did the tasty local IPA.

I've been to this restaurant several times and always enjoyed the food, but service is often not very friendly and this was the case on my most recent visit. Walked in and waited to be seated while several waiters just seemed to ignored me. Finally sat outside and the waiter seemed in a foul mood, no greeting, no smile, just... More

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.
