I really want to give this place four and a half Stars. Only half a star less than perfect because the service was mediocre. However, the food was really good. Had the lunch buffet which had a wide selection of the most popular Indian food. I was truly surprised at the variety - there was something for all palates. The... More

The lunch buffet is a trusty stand by for us. We go there often. They do get busy and crowded. We order take out if we want to avoid the crowd.

Had lunch and dinner here several times and would say it is usually good. I liked dinner better than lunch buffet as the taste is more authentic. Also, the service is good with provision to customize your spice/hotness level very creative as they just not make it hot but ensure it enhances the flavor at the same time.

The food here is good - it's no surprise loyal patrons return again and again. But this place is so packed that it's u comfortable. It's impossible to relax and enjoy a meal crammed cheek by jowl with other diners and rushing weight staff. A server flying out of the kitchen door smashed the swinging door into one of my... More

First off, I've never eaten Indian food before and the buffet was a perfect choice. This way I was able to try everything and find what i wanted! Also my boyfriends mom is vegetarian and loved it because there were so many options for her, don't worry though because there is meat and it was Delicious! The service was great,... More

As a regular visitor and consumer, I'm always pleased with the amazing spread Shalimar offers for its lunch buffet and that the quality and flavor of the food is always great. The food is clearly the primary reason that people return again and again. However, having experienced yet another instance of the truly unpleasant service provided at Shalimar, I felt... More

You know how a place blows your mind and then you wonder? Was it really that good? Well, Shalimar in Indy is THAT GOOD! I would have returned for a third time but my hosts took me to a Turkish place - and thats another review. Shalimar...Oh, how your food is tasty. I went for the lunch buffet. I have... More

This is one of the oldest Indian restaurants in the city. It has survived cause it does a wonderful job. Extensive menu, everything is fabulous.

We've been going to Shalimar every couple of months for the last seven years. It's always dependably good, with attentive service. The lunch buffet, served every day, is always well-stocked and delicious, with something for everyone. When our daughters come to town, they always want to go here for lunch. We're certainly not about to stop.
