Great food!!

We have always had delicious food at Shalimar and excellent service. We especially like the Chicken Tiki Masala and Chicken Curry. You can't have dinner without the garlic naan!

We're at Shalimar just about every Friday evening for the buffet. The staff is great, and the food is reliably good. And you can't beat the price. Favorite items on the buffet include the tandoori chicken, the fried cauliflower, and the chutney.

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
