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.

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

Ive eaten in Indian restaraunts around the country. This one ranked up there with the BEST of the best. I only tried the lunch buffet so I cant say anything about the dinners. The quality and selec tion on the lunch buffet were great. The flavors were also very distinctive and the food temperature was perfect. The atmosphere is nice... More

I've been to this restaurant several times over the years. The food is always good, but the food doesn't make up for the poor service the employees give to the patrons. We were asked if we wanted some sort of chutney with our order of naan, with no mention of it being extra, lo and behold the bill comes and... More

Even though it has been a year since your visit, I'm sorry to hear you weren't impressed with your service last time. I'm disappointed your waiter might not have mentioned the extra charge for the chutney and I'm surprised a manager would have acted uninterested by your complaint. At this point, all I can do is apologize for the way... More

My wife and I go here probably once a month, we never tire of the tastes. They work very hard to make each visit a great visit, even to the point that they know how spicy we like our foods. We have only one gripe.....if you order a salad, and they are great also, just make sure you either ask... More

Was looking of an Indian buffet for lunch, glad this is the one I found. The food had a different spice than I have been use too, but was very good. The wait staff were professional and provided excellent service in a clean well appointed location. You want go wrong if you give this restaurant a try.

We have eaten the buffet for Sunday lunch here 3-4 times over the past 2 years and enjoyed it each time. The buffet selection is very good including hot & cold items and some desserts. Service is excellent at removing dirty plates and keeping drinks filled.
