Great take out dinner for the family

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

I love the opportunity to get authentic cuisine and this is one place where it is available and affordable. We go several times a year with friends and BYOB. We go for the luncheon buffet regularly. I like having the chance to get food that I can't prepare at home and that fits the bill. The people there are always... More

Stopped in for the luncheon buffet. Always like the food here, but this time the chicken dishes were little too spicy for me. Vegetables were excellent and service outstanding. Loved the Kheer (rice pudding dessert). Will be back for dinner where I can specify how much spice I want. Good value.

I had never been to an indian restaurant. I was apprehensive about the food but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was great. Loved the buffet so I could try different foods and see what I liked. I liked almost everything to my surprise. I will be going again.

This is one of our favorite local restaurants. The food is excellent, fresh and well prepared. The service is good and always cordial. The food choices are many, and they will accommodate special resists. Good choice always.

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.
