Excellent lunch buffet

Everything you would expect at a lunch buffet. Condiments, soup, plain and garlic naan, appetizers, along with four vegetable dishes and three meat. Have been here three times and the quality has been consistent. Decently spicy too, unlike some places that seem to pander to bland American tastes.

This is quite good Indian food, very pleasant interior if modest, very attentive service. Very well prepared, very fresh. Garlic nan a treat, haven't seen that, tandoori chicken very fresh and moist. Onion chutney not at all bitter as it is some places. Spicy chicken dish was excellent. Very cheap for what is offered, and how well prepared.

A friend and I were out shopping and decided to grab a bite; we did not want one of the many chains. We settled on Shalimar and we were very happy we did. The buffet had a nice range to choose from. We sampled many dishes and then enjoyed a very tasty rice pudding for dessert. Our only complaint was,... More

Very good buffet with nice options to choose from. Nan was also good, although only a few pieces were brought out at a time so often there was a line waiting for more. Tables are very close together, so getting in and out was a little challenge. Some minor inconveniences, but the food was worth it. Plus dinner for four... More

Fell in love with this place when they had $5 all you can eat buffet on Central Ave. New location doesn't have as much heart, but parking is better. Staff a bit colder compared to former downtown location , but NOT unfriendly (maybe this has to do with now being located in an impersonal strip mall?). Cleanl! Prices fair, food... More

Yesterday we ran into Shalimar when we went to the TD Bank and so glad we did! The lunch buffet was very good and only $7.99. They also have Baklava for sale by the register so we got some to bring home. Restaurant was clean and waiters were very attentive.

I am not a big spice person so I only eat the less spicy dishes. But this restaurant has a yummy buffet! The food was fresh and the aroma was amazing. The employees were very nice and very attentive. I had chicken tandoori, chicken masala, rice, naan bread and coconut naan bread. Oh talking about it makes me want to... More

We often get take-out. My three year old grand-daughters love the food. Some times we are dissapointed with the servings. This time they were right on. We have in the past gotten lamb korma with very little lamb in it. The portions were plentyfull, the best way to eat here is for the buffet.
