“AS GOOD AS IT GETS!! AMAZING PAKI HALAL!!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2010

Be warned--there is NO atmosphere. Grab a menu--stand in line--know what you will order--don't expect a smile--order efficiently--pay cash--sit down--wait a few minutes--receive your food--dissolve into the finest halal cuisine in California. Bemoan the fact that you have no more room in your stomach. Thank God that you found this paradise.
Our family comes up from LA specifically for their food and complains that they haven't yet found anything to compare in LA (excepting Al_Wataan in Hawthrone, which is great).

“Oily food, you got to be really careful...”
Reviewed December 12, 2009

Oily food, you got to be really careful with this place. Taste is good but - not healthy at all . There are lot of other healthy Indian places around. I'm not going back there.

“If you're not in India, and missing good non-veg food...”
Reviewed April 24, 2009

Try everything. Its all good. It might seem spicy, but its not too bad, compared to food you'd get in India.
The Fremont location has the best combination of cleanliness (we're not starting with much here) and taste.
My friends and I crave Shalimar at least once a week - which is a hallmark of a good restaurant
