Whenever we are looking for some authentic Indian food we head to Shalimar. The spice is always right and the service is top notch. Ashu and Iqbal are always there to make sure our favorite wine is on the table and make new recommendations for...vegetarian dishes that make great leftovers the next day. Don’t forget the garlic naan!More
Stopped in for lunch with my wife. First time visit. We ordered lunch special which provided a great variety of tasty food. more than enough to eat and great value. Our server,Ashu, was very attentive. our waters were filled up 3Xs but at same time...was not intrusive. Enjoyed a nice glass of wine in a relaxed atmospher with soft music in background. if you like Indian food i would definately recommend Shalimar. Note they also did a good job spacing customers creating a very comfortable space for everyone.More
I work right around the corner and am new to the AA area. When I saw that there was an Indian restaurant in walking distance I was really excited! I usually order butter chicken but was told that the tikka masala was the closest they...had to that. I placed a carry out order and picked it up. It was ready on time and it was really good!
It cost around $17 for lunch which I thought was a little pricey but it was still good! I would like to try their buffet at lunch time. I’ve had several coworkers tells me it is worth trying out! I do believe I will return again!More
Awesome spot for a meal, especially if you're looking to switch things up from the usual foods along Main. Friendly staff and the food is great. Menu has a lot of variety, so should be able to find something for everyone.
You can get a table here as a walk in and the food is good. The servers are always professional and friendly and the prices are reasonable. If you don’t want to spend overly much or stand in line this place is your best bet...on Main Street. I had a gumbo vegetarian meal with naans and rice. My husband had curry and we were both happy as usual. The only dubious thing was the glass of white wine which arrived nearly full to the brim. That was gauche unless they get a free pass for not knowing about wine or how to serve it.More
I have seldom been so disappointed. We have been coming to Shalimar regularly for the last 13 years. It’s always been a great place with delicious food.
I don’t know whether it’s new management, or a new (and incompetent) chef, but tonight was dismal.
We...ordered an assortment of our favorite dishes for takeout. I waited in the restaurant while it was prepared.
The underdone tandoori tikka chicken was sitting in a quarter inch of water from the undercooked more or less steamed vegetables.
The chicken makhni should have started as chunks of tandoori chicken bathed in a creamy thick and rich butter chicken sauce. Not this time. The sauce did not remotely taste like it normally does (or did). It was thin, watery, and did not have much taste beyond the tomato base.
The methi matar paneer (peas in what should have been a creamy cheesy fenugreek sauce) was also far too thin, and oily to boot.
Speaking of oily, the inedible vegetable samosas were not only dripping with oil, the oil was burnt oil.
Then there were the smaller issues, such as they were out of mango chutney.
What the heck happened???
We will give it a few weeks, then try again with a SMALL takeout order. If there is a repeat of tonight’s fiasco we will never be back.
What a shame.More
