We had seen that the Shalimar had been getting very good reviews and noticed the car park was always very full. We had the most tasty meal, the staff were so friendly and the most attentive we have probably ever had! Beer and wine good (I preferred the bottle Cobra the keg! Excellent evening. Thanks we'll be back.

We were staying in the area and passed the Shalimar on Saturday. We had eaten but decided to go back for a takeaway on Sunday. We were welcomed straight away and offered a drink whilst we waited. Food was lovely. Had a tikka which is my favourite and have to say one of the best. If we are in the... More
