I live in the Northern Italy, in a town where thousands of Indians live, all Sikhs, but no one has opened a restaurant, so, after eating at Shalimar, I know what I lose! Everything we ate here was very good, since the starter especially the fried vegetables. The waitress fortunately recommended us to avoid spicy dishes, but to order the preparation of mild or a little spicy. It was a great advice so because' we could better appreciate the unique flavors of Indian cuisine. We tasted different preparations of chicken, all very special, accompanied by Naan bread, both simple and fried, very good the first, the second tasty but very heavy, better ask a portion for two. Surely dinner at Shalimar was almost certainly the best of our trip to the USA.

We visited the Shalimar restaurant over 10 years ago when it was located just off the highway in the town. We enjoyed the meal and decided to visit the place again in its different location. Oh dear, how things have changed! The chicken tikka starter lacked any flavour and I agree with those reviewers who have found the nan bread to be awful. I chose the prawn vindaloo and my wife ordered the chicken tikka masala. These two dishes appeared to be identical except for a slighty spicier vindaloo. My wife only ate two mouthfuls and I picked out the prawns in my meal and left the rest. We have enjoyed Indian cuisine in many countries but this was a bad experience.

Just had food at Shalimar at North Conway. I had biriyani and Parotta. The parotta was very soft. The mutton biriyani was very tasty. Would definitely recommend this if you want authentic indian food.

Extensive menu of standard North Indian fare. Restaurant decorated by many, many recent, praising comment cards. Well prepared dishes served by pleasant owner. I had Saag Paneer (spinach with their own homemade fresh paneer (cheese.) Yummy masala sauce. Good desert selection. We vacation in NH every year and the whole state does not have an Indian restaurant this good.
