We have visited this restaurant twice as we believe once isn't enough but each time the customer service was severely lacking and I didn't feel welcomed ...food was just ok nothing outstanding so it doesn't encourage me to visit again. I've tried lots of Indian restaurants in shrewsbury and this one I don't think I would revisit again. Staff need... More

Used to eat here regularly (before kids) so thought we'd try again. It wasn't particularly busy for a Friday night but could see a few takeaway orders being done. Used to be a very friendly place. Staff were attentive but not overly friendly. Meals were delicious, they took a while but didn't mind this. Would revisit again though.

Had an early week meal here. Food was very nice quickly served by friendly and attentive staff. Restaurant was busy for a Monday and the meals looked good.

Tried one of the house specialities, this time a medium-heat (two peppers) meal - perfect! Tasty, just right in strength. Great price as ever. Very dependable. Service a little slow tonight (Thu before Good Friday), but it was surprisingly busy.

Maybe it was because it was a midweek night and they were very quiet, but it was very ordinary. Chicken tikka starter had none of the smokiness you'd associate with that dish - it looked like it had been brushed with red food dye. Main course wasn't much better - lamb bhuna which just tasted like onion, pepper and lamb... More

Do NOT be put off by some of the mixed reviews - this place is excellent! I had a lovely birthday meal with my partner - we were both very pleased with the choice of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Some of the best Indian food I have had in a long time. Great service and fantastic value for money. Strongly... More

Another great meal at the Shalimar tonight. Staff always welcome us warmly and we feel our custom is important. We both had the three course meal for £11.95 - what a bargain!! My husband had King Prawn Dansak and I had the Chef's Special - both were delicious. As always the service was excellent, the pipping hot food was very... More

Always a good curry at Shalimar. Ordered poppadoms, mixed starter, chicken curry, cheese naan. Excellent value with good portion size. Only criticism was the service was slow between courses.
