Description: Growing up in an immigrant Indian family, we understood that America is the land of opportunity, where dreams come true. We're grateful to all the guests who have given us the opportunity to share our vision. Some restaurants are ideal for special occasions. Indeed we hope many of you, our guests, will celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other memorable events with us. But, at Shalimar we strive to make every lunch and dinner a special occasion for every guest. When we open the doors to the restaurant for lunch, dinner or catering, it's as if we're opening the doors to our own homes and inviting guests to enjoy extraordinary food paired with a rich Indian lager beer or a glass of wine from our extensive wine list. Our menu features the finest Northern Indian entrees and our specialty Tandoori (Clay Oven) dishes. Shalimar is elegant, relaxed, and affordable, inviting guests to enjoy the hospitality that reflects our Indian heritage.

I took friends here for dinner a couple of nights ago and we all enjoyed our it. We started with Garlic Naan, Veg Samosa and Chicken Samosa. The naan was perfect and the chicken samosa was the best I have had. For dinner we shared chicken kebabs, shrimp jalpharezi and lamb kebabs. The chicken kebabs where tender and very tasty.... More

It's wonderful that you enjoyed your visit, but it's truly a shame that the lamb kebabs weren't up to par. I appreciate your compliments on everything from the naan to the shrimp. Like you said, it sounds like it may have been an off-day for us, but I know we're better than that. I hope to see you again in... More

Unlike many of the reviewers, this was not my first time eating Indian - far from it. I picked this spot since it was near a hotel I was staying at, and I can say it's top quality Indian. My guest and I shared a non-vegetarian appetizer sampler which included lam kebabs, chicken tikka, tandoori chicken and a samosa, and... More

My son's family loves to have Saturday lunch at Shalimar. The service and accommodations are very good. I've been reading some of the reviews and have never experienced anything that would prompt me to leave negative feedback. The meals are delicious. I love the Chuney almost at much as the meals. May I have your chutney recipe?

After reading all of the excellent reviews, I had high expectations before going. Our visit to Shalimar definitely surpassed those expectations! We were immediately greeted and seated. The servers and waiters were all very friendly and professional. The food arrived fast, hot, and absolutely delicious! Everything tasted fresh and bursting with flavor. The meats were very moist and tender too.... More
