Still the best

I've been searching for the "best"' Indian food restaurant, and after trying places in Albany and Saratoga, I keep coming back to Shalimar. Best value, excellent food.

I have to admit I have limited experience with Indian food. Also was a bit timid to try goat meat. Did okay though. Curry was good. Tandori chicken for the timid but always reliable. Of course the Nanni bread and dips were great. I was disappointed with the vegetables. Cauliflower tempura in a tomato type sauce resulted in a rubbery... More

The weekend buffet is a fantastic bargain. Quite an extensive selection--both vegetarian and meat choices, and the quality of the food is very good.

The buffet is really the way to go. At $9.99 for Thurs-Sat evenings, it's a real bargain. The food is always tasty and fresh. It gets busy around 6:00, so arrive earlier or later or be prepared to wait ~10 min.

We're often skeptical of Indian food - especially buffets - at restaurants because we are native Bengalis and my wife is a great cook, but this place (especially with its affordable dinner buffet) has become a regular "go-to" for us. The spice is toned down a bit for obvious reasons but otherwise very authentic and the owner and staff are... More

I treated my parents for both of their birthdays and my husband came along. I told them, "we're going someplace different tonight". I had called ahead to see if one the buffet was open or not and two what things I should avoid for being gluten free. The manager was very prompt and told me what to avoid and the... More

This a good restaurant for take out and they have a well stocked lunch and dinner buffet. The food is varied from visit to visit based on the chefs. That is not to say it is ever bad, just sometimes the flavors differ.

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!
