On way back from Quebec, my wife and I stopped at this indian restaurant last saturday evening for enjoying buffet. First, choice at buffet is very poor, I used to eat in several indian restaurant, and nothing very fancy in that one... I drank a beer, my wife a limonade; even the sweet dishes choice was not the best, just... More

Been going for years, started with very affordable buffet then progressed to great a la carte dinners. So happy that we have a great Indian choice in the eastern townships.

It took us a long time to go back, and I wonder why. They made some improvements on the decor from our last visit and the light was dimmer. We were there on a Friday, so we had the buffet. Very good, and there are some plates that are spicier than others. I am found of the "fried onions" with... More

We have been there now for quite a few years, mostly at lunch time for the buffet. We have been to India twice. Shalimar has authentical indian food, tasty, real THING! Staff , all of them , «sympathique », generous. Price reasonable. A must in the Eastern Township.

I have been taking guest speakers from my university to the Shalimar over the past 20 years. I have never been disappointed. And my guests have always enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The owner/chef is extremely accommodating and will take the time to speak to his clients about their dining experience. Once I remarked on how much I loved... More

Nestled on the main road from Sherbrooke center to Lennoxville,this is a sweet little restaurant for connaisseurs! Go for lunch buffet on Thursday or Friday, or evenings on the weekend! Plenty of parking, with a terrace for summer, the Shalimar offers authentic Indian food at moderate prices! We love the all you can eat buffet!

We went here with a group of 8 women and we thought we would be dining from the buffet. However, it was not available and so we ordered many different entrees to share and enjoy. I enjoyed most of the entrees although the bill was quite hefty. The atmosphere was not that great at all but I would most likely... More

A treat when bringing/taking daughter to school at Lennoxville was the delicious Indian buffet at Shalimar. Sadly for us (but happily for her) she graduated five years ago. On a whim we drove four hours to have dinner at Shalimar and I can report it is every bit as good now as it was then. There is a good variety... More

Kudos to the waiter that kept it going at the restaurant! There seemed to be only one person waiting tables outside. And a busy place for a wed evening. Which kinda made us think thrice before we called for the waiter for anything. But we were attended to from time to time. No complaints there. Food was good...nothing exceptional I... More
