Fresh food, well prepared

Outdoor dining on Main St. was pleasant. My friend REALLY likes Indian food and thinks the tikka masala is the best in southeast Michigan; I tasted it and found it the best I have ever sampled. The spinach salad were fresh with dressing on the side as requested. I tried the galoti kebab, a... read more

My family has been eating at Shalimar for years. Once upon a time it was our favorite restaurant--we thought it was the best Indian food in Ann Arbor. Then they renovated and raised the prices very high -- and now, sad to say, the food is not nearly as good as it used to be. The ingredients no longer seem... More

I love all different types of food, but Indian is one of my favorites. I've eaten at a number of Indian restaurants, both in Ann Arbor and around the country, and this is some of my favorite Indian food. The selection is great, and I've loved everything I have gotten. Some of my favorites are the Chicken Tikka, Channa Marsala,... More

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

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!
