A nice restaurant close to the beach. Quality of food very good but service on the night a little slow.

“Great affordable meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We bought some takeway for a dinner party of 9 people and everyone enjoyed their meals. The Veggie Korma was beautiful and the whole meal cost less than $100. The kids all loved the pappadums.

“Value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My partner and I recently had the opportunity to try this restaurant. Shalimar not a 5 or 4 star and nor is it making out to be. It offers reasonably priced meals in an authentic style. The menu is as you would expect from an Indian restaurant offering a good range of curries, breads and rices. Really the only thing that was a let down was the decor which seemed to be rather a poor effort that lacks atmosphere. It is situated in a great location and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Genuinely worth a try.

“Vulgar 'Vegetarian'”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I took my family out to the Shalimar a few weeks ago just to test the waters.
We ordered two vegetarian curries - both of them came with a few pieces of
chicken in them. It seemed clear to us all that they'd gone and taken a chicken curry
and attempted to take most of the chicken out, trying to pass it off as vegetarian.
We were disgusted. What crooks. We'll never be back.
