We decided to go to The Shalimar tonight as we love the place and we were not disappointed. The food , the service , the care and attention were as good as ever. Well worth the journey. What more needs to be said or indeed can be said.

Have been going for years, and in the last few it has entered the premiere league. Very good food tailored to your own desire. Service is also very good.

Tonight was our first visit to The Shalimar, if only we lived closer it would become our regular indian restaurant. We were greeted and shown to a lovely table by an open door, a nice cool breeze was very welcoming. The Shalimar know exactly how to look after their customers, whether like us it is your first visit, or if... More

We came here for the first time, on a special occasion and found the service attentive ( but not intrusive) and extremely friendly. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was delicious, and very filling.

We ate at the Shalimar Restaurant on 18th July. The staff were very attentive and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. We would definitely eat there again.

The Shalimar is a great restaurant. We have been here a few times now and the staff are consistently welcoming and friendly. We have some dietary restrictions and this is always accomodated without problem. The food is delicious. As veggies, we find that some Indian restaurants like to cook vegetables to a mush. Not so the Shalimar: veggies are always... More

Went to this restaurant tonight to celebrate my son's new job. First time we've been but we were warmly welcomed like regulars. The service was excellent and so was the food. Spicy and flavourful for me and milder but equally flavourful for him. The whole place is well kept and spacious and we will definitely be back!
