Sunday afternoon buffet

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.

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.

I can only count on Shalimar for a delicious meal. I was super excited when they started to offer a dinner buffet Fri, Sat, Sun because I no longer work in Clifton Park and missed their lunch buffet. Chana chaat, which is a cold chickpea salad, is probably on the top of my favorite foods list. I also love vegetable... More

This place has a great all you can eat buffet! It's a great way to try a new food. They have a great deal on the buffet and I have never left wanting anymore food. They do a good job keeping the trays full and the restaurant is always clean. They are quick to serve you here. The employees really... More
