Could not get a table at India Gate and now I am very happy that I didn't. Went just down a couple of doors to Shalimar and had a great meal. Authentic indian with great sauces and rice, loved the curried vegetables. It was the kind of meal that just got better with each bite.

Last week was the first time me and my partner try out Shalimar. That weekend we wanted to try out Indian Gate but some how every time we wanted to go after yoga on Saturday it's never open. So we walk pass Shalimar and I suggested to go in but my partner say " it look skatchy". We google the place to see what review said about this place, which all review was good! We go in, partner say waw, it's really nice in here, very clean! So we try out there buffet and the vegetarian food really good and the rice is amazing the flavour of all is excellent ! We will be going back soon!

The Shalimar has excellent supper choices, all of which are delicious, the family that runs the place is very welcoming, and the prices are excellent for what you get. I'm not a huge fun of the lunch buffet though; it's pricier, less delicious, and less fresh.

GREAT food, very flavorful and a generous portion. Like many have already said the place is nothing to look at, but the food is definitely worth coming back for. First time, but, not the last.

Four of us had Sunday supper at the Shalimar in late June. We had a hard time finding it, walked by it twice before we found it. When we finally walked in at about 7 pm there were no other patrons in the place. So we wondered if this was a good choice. Service was good (of course, no one else in there!) We ordered lamb Biryani, a shalimar plate, shami kabab plate and a butter chicken. Food came quickly and was all delicious. All of us like Indian food, although we are not completely familiar with the ingredients, and these meals were tasty, well presented and large portions. The two picky eaters in our group ate every bit of food on their plates. The kheer for dessert was delicious, we should have ordered 4 instead of 2 with 4 spoons! Really good value as well, meal prices seemed lower than most restaurants that we had been to before in St. John's. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the breath-freshing mix of spices/herbs at the end of the meal, one of the nicest tasting ones we've had. Not sure why the restaurant wasn't busier, if we lived in St. John's we would be back.
