“No.1 and no mistake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on the strength on trip advisor and it was a good decision. It deserves its no. 1 position.
The service was brilliant, and the food was maybe the best curry we have ever had.
I would definitely recommend shalimar.

“First Class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

I love Indian food and this restaurant is one of the best I have visited. The hospitality, service and food were of the highest order. I live in Harrogate (April House) and whenever I fancy an 'Indian' this will be my first choice.

“Enjoyable meal in a welcoming restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

The welcome sets the scene nicely also good to see people employed from across the community all very helpful. The menu is quite extensive but if you wish we were informed they would try to make the food in the style requested. A wide range of spices are used taste was as if freshly prepared and certainly not swimming in ghee. Overall it is easy to see why Shalimar is highly rated - in fact the reason it was chosen was because of tripadvisor - so unless reviews change you can't go wrong here.

“Great original Indian food with very attentive service.”

We both ate meals that weren't actually on their menu and they were fantastic. The waiters were very friendly, attentive and helpful.

“what a lovely experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

went to shalimar last night and felt the need to review straight away.
when we arrived had such a warm welcome and a excellent table located in the window. The resturant itself is cosy and not crammed together with a authentic style. Jamel looked after us for the night and asked us what we want, what we like and they will make it - taylormade especially for us ! I chose a cod dish - wow!!! we started with a pickle tray and I have never had one like it lots of new dips to try all delicious felt spoilt!! everyone in our party was extremely happy with their meals and portion sizes were excellent - fresh flavours clean and crisp. The chef had made some birfi ( not sure on spelling) due to him having a new daughter that day and we were given some free charge to join in the celebrations. will definately be going back and may even book a night there just for the privledge!!!
