Lunch Buffet is a Great Deal

Delicious, fresh, varied Indian food. The lunch buffet is a terrific deal. Dinner is fairly pricey. Service is friendly.

Everyone here is truly nice and welcoming to start. I love it when I can get to the lunchtime buffet so I can have a little of everything and finish it off with their delicious rice pudding. Dinner here is nice as well and you can get it to go if you prefer. I highly recommend Shalimar!

Food was not good. Service was poor too. Parking is available. Décor is very cheap. I won't recommend this one.

Great food and service for a late night dinner. I had the Punjabi Lamb Korma -- a little spicier than korma I've had elsewhere and very good. Wife had Mulligatawny soup, also very good. Wonderful variations on traditional Naan. We'll be back to try the buffet.

Good to excellent standard Pakistani - Indian cuisine. The tandoori's are excellent. The rest are all good to excellent. Love the Nan - especially the Jalepeno Cheese Nan. Friendly staff, reasonable prices and BYOB.

Usually Shalimar in Delmar is excellent. We order take out there about once a month and have for a couple of years. Our last take out meal last week, though, was terrible. New management? Untrained kitchen? Partner doesn't want to give them another chance, though I am willing to forgive one lapse. I would be curious to know if any... More

My teenage son and I eat here about once a month, and we also order takeout on occasion. The food is consistently really good. While the prices are reasonable, the lunch buffet is a real bargain, plus you get to try all kinds of tasty dishes. The food is always fresh, and nicely spiced.

I have certainly eat great Indian food in the home of friends and spent more money trying to find it in the region, however, I think the buffet gives you a reasonable sampling of Indian food to trial. We tend to go early and observe that the food is brought out often. They do limit the number of meat containing... More

I ordered pick-up Malai Kofta, Peas & Potato-Stuffed Naan, and Vegetable Dumplings here on a Saturday night. The staff was very welcoming when picking up, and the food was good, but it's not the best I've had. I have to say that I wouldn't mind coming here again - but not before checking out similar restaurants in the area to... More

We have eaten dinner at the restaurant in Delmar, gotten take out and had the lunch buffet. The food has been consistently good. The lunch buffet during the week is a great value and includes lots of variety - great for trying different dishes.
