I had food delivered. It was really good. I was amazed at how hot the food was given the distance to the restaurant. Two things to watch out for -- the diet coke is really diet pepsi, even when you specify that you want the diet coke. Secondly, when you ask for extra napkins, you get extra plasticware packets with... More

This reastaurant near to the airport is quiet decent - both in terms of food quality & cost. Being close to my place of work, went there couple of times for lunch and taste was consistent. Cost of a single buffet comes around USD 7.5 irrespective if you eat Vegetarian or not. Has items to suit both veg & non-veg... More

Every time or should I say, when ever I'm done playing a round of golf, I head to my friends at Shalimar in Latham. The food is excellent and the environment is great. They are very friendly and have a great lunch buffet.

I really like the Albany Shalimar Restaurant, and often go there with friends; I take the students I mentor there as well. They have a great buffet, including all sorts of chicken or veggie dishes, and also fresh salad, yogurt and cucumber mix, fresh orange wedges, and they make your tea individually. Yummy food, and very reasonable. A great place... More

As a tourist, my friend and I wanted to try some Indian food. The food was okay. I like Indian food and this was at best average. The service was good. The waiter was polite and helpful. The problem I really had with this place was location. I grew up in Philadelphia, not the worse part of philly but definitely... More
