We had dinner in this Indian restaurant and had an enjoyable experience. The room is spacious with lots of tables. We took one of the menus at 22,90€ and the food was fine. Service was timely and courteous. The wine list is fine too.

We went here because a fellow reviewer said that flavours exploded in the mouth and it was so good compared to other Indian restaurants in Nice. Well, I'm sorry to disagree. The Onion Bahjis were warm and soft. The mint sauce, a poor second to...More

Our favourite Indian in Nice had closed since our last visit, so we tried Le Shalimar. We weren't disappointed! The menu is varied and I opted for a couple of side dishes to have together as a main course. Friendly service and very modern bathrooms.
