Over the past several years, Shalimar restaurant has become one of the top notch restaurants in Fremont serving delicious Indian Pakistani food. This place is packed whether on a weekday or a weekend which speaks for itself. If you don't mind the loud noise, the smell of exotic spices and self service environment then you must eat here.
Pros - Delicious finger licking spicy food. The chicken Kabab's are really good. Centrally located in the heart of Fremont.
Cons - This is basically a self service restaurant so don't expect to be waited on. Since it is generally very busy, wait times can be 15-30 mins. during rush hours. Ambience is about a 3 on a scale of 1-10. Tables are packed together. Definitely a very loud place. Curries can be pretty oily.

Tremendously complex flavors and AROMAS! This is not "Indian" food, but LEBANESE! We took it to go, which was perfect. The restaurant is loud and you order at the counter, so not much in the way of service or atmosphere. But, oh, the food....

It was highly recommended so I decided to give it a shot. Service is almost non existent just like back in the developing world mentality :-). I tried their biryani, was ok, nothing special, garlic naan was a complete flop, but overall not too bad.

If you want some great North Indian/Pakistani food this the place to have it at. The place is not that nice from the inside and you might have to get your own plates and water but they make up for it by great food and very affordable price.

This place has absolutely no ambience however all the people I went with were going gaga over the food. They do not spare any efforts in deep frying and probably one of the reasons why it was tasty. The set up is very very basic.
