My good buddy works in Troy so whenever he calls me to meet for lunch we go here to Shalimar's Restaurant. The Lunch Buffet is so mouth watering delicious I crave it if I don't eat there for awhile. They're food is ALWAYS fresh, they always have a good amount of food with a great variety to choose from, and... More

This place has a wide range of dishes, large portion size, and very tasty food. The interior was empty when we went; just missed the lunch buffet(Which is good value). The service was curt at best; but the food made up for it. I would likely come back again.

Its a great place to get good Indian food. The buffet is a good value. It is a small place and if its busy it will be crowded. All the food is pretty good. I usually go for buffet but on occasion I order online and pick up.

My wife and i ate here before going on a Halloween cruise on the Hudson river. The Chicken Tikka Masala i had was ok, quite bland but hot as requested. My wife had a Vegetarian curry and also commented it was bland. Not in a hurry to return but would eat there again. Im from the UK and appreciate a... More

I have been eating at tis restaurant since it opened and have a lunchtime buffet several times a month. Their byline is something about beginning your spicy journey with them and though things have warmed up a little in recent months, it is true that the lunch buffet dishes are mild, though tasty. it's good and tasty and inexpensive. I... More

They put out a ton of delicious food for their lunch special (I think it's $8 for the buffet), including never ending fresh naan and rice pudding. A really great place to go with an SO or a friend or two. Would not take a big party here, it's tiny.

The price is right at $7.99 buffet. There is a wide variety of dishes including chicken and lamb. There is always a pile of hot nan on its way out of the kitchen. Easy parking on the street.

You can depend on shalimars to give you decent indian/pak food. Its not really that good compared to true cuisine. Lunch is the only meal that gives you bang for your buck with the lunch buffets. They serve you the same stuff for dinner at 13 bucks a plate. Dinner is too expensive for what it is. Lunch is just... More
