This is my family's second trip to Shalimar since my daughter started attending RPI. My wife and two daughters and my daughter's boyfriend went for the all you can eat buffet on Sunday. The food was fresh hot and spicy (some dishes). I like the location in an older area of Troy which looks on the rebound.... kinda reminds me... More

Not a warm welcoming atmosphere. I noticed a lot of folks came in for take out. The food was tasty, probably will try a "warmer" and more colorful restaurant next time.

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 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.

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.
