All Shalimar locations have a great affordable lunch buffet with a variety of different options that always change. On any day you are likely to see chicken tandoori, tikka masala, goat curry, chilli chicken, as well as a variety of vegetarian options and fresh, hot naan bread!

Too Spicy!!! We have been going there frequently- their prices and affability are perfect. But this dinner was so spicy I couldn't touch it. And this is what I've had each time I've returned. (Palace Paneer) . I did say something to the waiter, who just expressed his regrets and said I should tell them next time to make it... More

What they serve here is anything but original Indian taste. Everything is bland and more catering to local market. Their clientel is mostly americans who have zero clue about what Indian food actually tastes like. Been there once not going again.

Definitely the best Indian food in the capital region. Clean quiet and owners are the chef and every dish is amazing and extremely nice. Lunch is always an array of all Indian dishes and dinner is a wonderful menu of the most authentic Indian food. Favors are amazing and not too spicy.

We are very picky when it comes to Indian food and shalimar is by far the best. The weekend lunch buffet is a deal that cannot be beat.

We stopped by for the buffet because we wanted to have a variety of dishes. The food was excellent. The staff was attentive and polite. The experience was wonderful. We actually have been back several times for both the buffet and for dinner.

I first went here for dinner and was not impressed. Then a friend and I went for lunch. What a difference! Good selection and good price.

Our family loves Shalimar and an evening here is always a nice way to step back from our busy schedule and enjoy dinner together in a place that treats us like guests, but feels like home. We haven't tried every dish yet, but that's a good goal!

My son invited me to lunch at Shalimar today. My first visit. The restaurant is a small, but quaint establishment located in a shopping center called Delaware Plaza. It was not crowded during the lunch hour and quite pleasant to have a normal conversation. The lunch buffet provided a good selection of food choices and we tried them all. Very... More
