There is absolutely nothing wrong with this restaurant. The food is very well prepared and service is polite and prompt. But the level of spice is very mainstream-almost bland. For appetizers we ordered vegetable samosa with onion chutney, which is usually very hot, but here it was rather mild. One of our main dishes, Lamb Madras, was advertised as hot... More

This was my go-to place for a fun lunch with my son when he was in college. Great selection on the buffet, something for everyone. Always fresh and well seasoned. Especially love the vegetable dishes and the tandoori chicken. Great raita too.

I have eaten here repeatedly with all my family members and many of my friends. The food here is excellent and the lunch buffet is an excellent value. I have never had a bad meal here and I have eaten here at least twenty times.

This is the best Indian and Pakistani food in the Albany NY area and possibly all of Upstate NY. Service is prompt and friendly. My wife and I go at least once a month.

Liaquat Khan Chutia (owner/manager?) was extremely rude for no particular reason (probably because I said my origin was India/Bangladesh) while taking our orders. Food/drink was terrible. The table was dirty. Will never go back to this awful place ever again. Stay away from this place.

What more can one ask ? Casual dining with great Indian and Pakastani food at a very reasonable price. I do like the tandoori chicken and the rice pudding dessert.

Shalimir never fails at providing a great quality of Indian/Pakistani food at a great price. Great for familie or couples. They allow you to bring in a bottle of wine to enjoy with your meal, which is a plus!
