Though their buffet is on the small side, the food itself it excellent. Everything they have is full of flavor. I visit this place at least couple times a month.

My family has eaten here at least a half dozen times in the last year, enjoying the weekend evening buffet, which is inexpensive, and pretty good. I cannot claim to be a connoisseur of Indian food, but I have found my meals interesting and tasty enough. I do not like very highly spiced foods, so I was glad to find... More

It's OK. I wouldn't say it's good. The buffet is seriously americaized. Nothing like real Indian or Pakistani food. Not spicey in the least unless you think table pepper is spicey. It is unquestionably popular for reasons I can't figure out. Maybe if I would learn farsi they would make the spice level equal to what I have had at... More

When we arrived at 5:30 PM at Shalimar on Sat. night, we were seated at the last table available. There was a line at the buffet, but well worth it. Many different choices presented, couldn't fit all on my plate, thinking I would go back and get more. Everything was hotter (in temp) than usual, a big plus for us.... More

Shalimar has turned around and become a very good Indian Restaurant. They have a buffet for lunch very day and and a few days a week for dinner. It's great! Never really ordered off the menu. Their food is fresh and tasty. They take care to keep the buffet filled and very clean. The people there are very nice! Keep... More

We absolutely adore this place. The two ladies who served us are wonderful (and prompt too!). The buffet is always fresh, hot, flavorful, and decently priced. Buffet includes "bottomless" drinks (except Lassi or special drinks, those are extra). The bad thing about Shalimar is how small the restaurant is- it is almost always full.

Shalimar is one of the original Pakistani/Indian restaurants in the area and is always consistent. Lately, we have been going on the weekend for their dinner buffet, which usually provides at least a half dozen entree choices, including vegetarian options. They often have goat, which I love, as an option too. If you don't like your food too spicy, you... More

This is the best buffet in the area. The food is so flavorful and piping. Whenever we go to the buffet there is always food in the pans or more on the way unlike other buffets we have been to. Nice sauces too!

Their regular menu is still good but the buffet is slipping. You often have to wait for items to be replenished. Ate half my meal before Nan reappeared. BUT, the food is still good. They could offer one spicy dish for those of us who like the challenge.
