When my husband and I visit family in Ann Arbor, Shalimar is one of our "must stop at places". The food has been consistently good and they've been very accommodating but that all recently changed since the restaurant came under new co ownership. The prices increased and portions decreased. Sad to say food is not as good as it used... More

I highly recommend the lunch buffet - a great selection of vegetarian and meat dishes with a choice of naan or garlic naan. FANTASTIC MEAL!

We visited Shalimar on a Saturday afternoon in April. We chose to have the buffet meal. It was delicious! Everything was well prepared, and great variety. Most of all, the service was excellent. We were greeted warmly, staff was attentive, and we felt welcome. Have been back since!

We really enjoyed this place- highly recommend! We had two lamb dishes that were new to us but were delicious. Good beer and wine selection too.

Had been to this place on a Saturday afternoon. Had ordered plain naan, kheer and dahi papdi chat; all were good; the naan was very soft. One of us went in for buffet lunch; on week ends only it is available. Quite a lot of options both veg and non-veg - rotis, biriyani, pakoras, desserts, etc., etc....Very sumptuous meal,

We had a reservation for 6:15 and were promptly seated at a booth on the main floor of the restaurant. Our server was very professional. We ordered the vegetable samosas, which were a little on the dry side, but the filling was very tasty. We ordered the Seekh Kabob, mild which was a bit spicy, but not too much. and... More

The cuisine is fine: an extensive array of authentic dishes at decent prices. BUT: the service leaves much to be desired: it was slow, erratic, unwelcoming. Worst of all: when we finished the main courses, the dishes weren't even removed before dessert was brought (or during or after)... Too bad: this detracted from the dining experience.

Shalimar is a fine dining Indian restaurant. It's not often you find an ethnic restaurant with professional level staff, nice restaurant decor, and good food. We went on a Monday evening and surprising pretty full. I asked the waiter for a lamb recommendation. I believe I ended up with the LAMB CHETTINAD. It was very flavorful. The side of naan... More
