Tasty Indian food

Very tasty Indian food. Strange, for someone from the UK, to be asked how spicy we would like our curry. Back home you know from the name of the dish how spicy it is going to be. Very good service and quite reasonable prices/

We found a friendly welcome and accommodating service at Shalimar of India but the food was disappointing. If you are unaccustomed to Indian food it might be a reasonable introduction but otherwise it is far from the best I've tasted. The pakora was heavy and greasy, the lamb in the curry was very chewy, and the saag was bland. I'd... More

I had never tried Indian food before, but I've driven by Shalimar a million times and thought I'd like to try it. I was traveling to North Conway with a friend to meet some others for a girls' weekend, and she is pretty adventurous and managed to talk me into it. I was so impressed with the atmosphere, food, and... More

Best Indian food we have ever had. And we have had many Indian meals in many US cities - Boston, Cambridge, New York, Portsmouth, Portland - many others. By far and away, we think this is truly the best! It is ALWAYS good! Very consistent! ALWAYS good! Wonderful! Thank you.

Great authentic Indian restaurant which is family run and friendly service. We will definitely return back even though we live in Montreal.

Decided to try Shalimar. I like Indian spiced food on a bit milder edge and Shalimar came through with high marks. Enjoyed dinner, the food was fantastic, enjoyed the international waiters and customers. My boyfriend does not do well with hot spiced food and they did an excellent job with giving his dinner a lot of flavor without the heat.... More

Some interesting varied reviews here. I feel some are being a bit too harsh especially when they ask how hot you want it - we are in Saudi with millions of Indians and they always ask us how hot you want it. Cant really remember our appetizer which we shared but I do agree the chicken jalfrezi was different than... More

We decided to eat here with friends as one of us really fancied a curry. Big mistake. When asked how hot we would like our dish we should have realised this place is not authentic. Ordered a rogan josh. Got what looked like watery korma with a few chunks of dry chicken and some canned veg mixed in. Rescued some... More

This is an hour of my life I am never going to get back after visiting what has got to be a miserable excuse for an “Indian” restaurant. It shouldn’t be allowed! I’m guessing that Americans don’t have a clue about what Indian food should actually taste of and so accept this eatery for what it is. As four Brits... More

Welcoming and friendly staff. Decor fairly basic. Service was quick. Quality and quantity of food reasonable but not exceptional.
