We made reservations and arrived to the warmest, nicest greetings from everyone in this family-run restaurant. It's a little bright for evening but that was good for the large tables and families. The people were so nice that I hate to write this review but I also hate for anyone to get their hopes up for a great meal. We... More

We've been happy fans of the wonderful, authentic food and family service since Shalimar was on Seavey St. They maintained their quality and service in their new, bigger location on the main road. They handle our larger group (30+!) with joy and expertise.

The service was great, obviously a family-run restaurant. However, we both found the food disappointing, in comparison to other Indian restaurants we have eaten at. I started with "PANEER PAKORAS (5Pcs) Fresh homemade cheese mix with nuts & shredded potato, deep fried in chickpea batter" and to be honest, it was very mediocre. My husband started with papadum, which arrived... More

We generally visit Shalimar to get an Indian food fix on trips to North Conway. The food is solid and the service is always very friendly and prompt.

This is by far, the best Indian food I've experienced. The Lamb Masala, Lamb Vindaloo, Chicken Curry and many other dishes are fantastic. The nan is also to die for! service is phenomenal - very much a family place. It's such a nice, friendly and warm place to visit during a cold winter week. I highly recommend this, even if... More

Disappointed. Service was ok as was atmosphere. It was the food that was surprisingly poor. I doubt it was cooked by an Indian or someone with experience in that type of food. I tasted some lamb, chicken, and couscous dishes- uniformly hot but disappointing in flavor. As oft mentioned in the reviews, the nan bread did not resemble what I... More

I live in the Northern Italy, in a town where thousands of Indians live, all Sikhs, but no one has opened a restaurant, so, after eating at Shalimar, I know what I lose! Everything we ate here was very good, since the starter especially the fried vegetables. The waitress fortunately recommended us to avoid spicy dishes, but to order the... More
