My partner and I decided after seeing reviews to give The Shalimar a try. I reserved a table for last night. And I must say we were not disappointed at all. The whole experience was superb. The staff are friendly, courteous and attentive from the moment of entering the restaurant to us leaving. We felt welcome and comfortable. The restaurant... More

The staff were very attentive, the food was good & presented well. Nice atmosphere, very clean throughout. Good parking, easy to get to. Will definitely go again. Small negatives: could have done with a little authentic music and the prices do not match those on-line, they maybe take away prices only??

A lucky find, it was the nearest place to eat from our B&B! The excellent service started before we got to the door, my partner was struggling to park and a waiter came to our assistance. Lovely ambience, Ali suggested I might like to reconsider my choice of curry for something more adventurous, I am so glad I took his... More

Visited with my elderly mother for a meal to celebrate her birthday. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, time was taken to ensure she was happy and comfortable before the meal order was taken. The table was decorated and a banner put up, once they were aware it was Mum's birthday. Excellent food, really tasty and just as... More

4 of use, away on holiday, stumbled across The Shalimar Restaurant by chance. What an excellent find it was. The food was absolutely outstanding and certainly not over priced. However, the one thing that makes The Shalimar really stand out were the staff. They were friendly, very efficient, courteous, extremely helpful and attentive (without being in your face). So thank... More

Took a disabled lady who was having her 91st birthday. A birthday banner and balloons were put up and a 'sparkling' cake appeared at the end of our meal much to her delight. The service was excellent and most efficient, with great care taken to make the lady in question comfortable. The food was delicious and for two of us,... More
