Good food, great service, nice atmosphere, awesome lunch buffet

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.

My wife and I have eaten here on numerous occasions and have alway thoroughly enjoyed out meal. The only downside is the lack of a liquor license but they allow you to bring your own. We have never had a bad experience and the staff are always plesant.

We get our takeout indian here and love the food. They also have a fabulous lunch time buffet during the week with awesome food, great service and a big turnover so the food is very fresh. Don't miss out on the samosas!

I have not had the pleasure of dining in at Shalimar but I am more than impressed with their take out. I love their selection, authenticity, and flavor. The portions are well sized and they have some of the best naan I have eaten anywhere. The establishment itself is nice, and I look forward to enjoying their lunch buffet sometime... More

What else can I say? The food is very flavorful and the service is efficient. We've never had anything but a good meal here.

We seldom have time to plan a sit-down meal out, but love to order take-out from Shalimar, at least 1x/month. Even with special diets and picky eaters, there is something for every one at Shalimar!

I tried Shalimar's again after a previously average experience. I like good Indian food and this is only average. I invited three friends who love Indian food and their opinions were about the same. In fairness to the owners, we went for a late lunch when the buffet was ready to close and the food was probably not at its... More
