We absolutely adore this place. The two ladies who served us are wonderful (and prompt too!). The buffet is always fresh, hot, flavorful, and decently priced. Buffet includes "bottomless" drinks (except Lassi or special drinks, those are extra). The bad thing about Shalimar is how small the restaurant is- it is almost always full.

Shalimar is one of the original Pakistani/Indian restaurants in the area and is always consistent. Lately, we have been going on the weekend for their dinner buffet, which usually provides at least a half dozen entree choices, including vegetarian options. They often have goat, which I love, as an option too. If you don't like your food too spicy, you... More

This is the best buffet in the area. The food is so flavorful and piping. Whenever we go to the buffet there is always food in the pans or more on the way unlike other buffets we have been to. Nice sauces too!

Their regular menu is still good but the buffet is slipping. You often have to wait for items to be replenished. Ate half my meal before Nan reappeared. BUT, the food is still good. They could offer one spicy dish for those of us who like the challenge.

I love Indian food. I travel to India for business regularly, about twice a year, for weeks at a time. I've eaten Indian food at fancy restaurants, guest houses, people's homes, cafeterias and roadside stands. It's always good. Even in the US, and right here in the Capital District, most Indian food is, if not great, then at least tasty.... More

Everything seemed to have to much oil. I had a dough cauliflower that taste like fish I was very offended because Im a vegetarian. A lot of green pea dishes and not the tradition chick peas. Very disappointed. Not going back.
