No welcome on arrival, server gave the impression it was a hassle having to serve us. Food was the worst we have ever had at an Indian, popodoms were burnt as was the naan bread. Meals were tasteless. Dishes were not cleared away even when the bill was slapped on the table and collected 2 seconds after we put the... More

Visited with family, mediocre Devore, but great service. Ordered veg curries, naan, roti, dal, biryani, not impressed with any of the dishes. No Indian spice flavours, runny curry sauce and no where closer to Indian authentic food. Biryani was ok, but no where closer to Indian taste.

My husband and I have been here many times, is in my opinion the best Indian food in Burlington. The food isdelicious and you can have it spicy or mild. You have to try. ON Sundays they have a buffet.

Family-run restaurant that's been around for 20 years! Huge menu! Modest but cozy atmosphere. If you like Indian food, you won't be disappointed. Sunday all-you-can-eat brunch is highly recommended for trying multiple curries and saffron rice. The fresh naan bread is delicous, and comes in multiple flavors. Samosas (stuffed turnovers) are the best around! Delicious chutney (condiment/sauces) and get a... More

I have been here at least 6 times. The owner and staff are pleasant. The restaurant is quaint and cozy. The food DELICIOUS! You have to love that Indian bread. We used to go to another place (the India House) for brunch - but the staff was very rude. Their loss - we go here instead. Afterwards you have stroll... More

This is the only Indian restaurant we've ever visited in the USA so maybe the standard is not so high but compared to the UK this place would be empty and go out of business in a month. The wait was interminable, the chicken was undercooked and the prawns were still frozen. We were convinced we would be ill the... More

Decided to visit it as it was nearest to our hotel. We, normally, try to find at least one Indian restaurant in whichever city we visit, for all said and done, as Indians, we normally do not feel comfortable unless we have at least one Indian meal in one day. The ambiance was, frankly disappointing. Quite average. We reached there... More

Shalimar is one of those little places where the atmosphere is cozy, the waitstaff is attentive but doesn't hover and the food, well just wow. This is, by far, my favorite local Indian restaurant. I continue to recommend Shalimar to friends and family.

I am used to eating Indian food in the England and I have had a hard time finding decent Indian food in America. This restaurant does a nice job and it will no be my staple for my Indian cravings. The prices are fairly cheap but you got a lot of food with your order.

I did say medium on the spices but not "bland" which is what it was to me. We were not in a hurry but if you are, plan enough time, as it is a bit slow. To be fair, the other two I was with enjoyed it more than I did. Sag paneer, chicken tiki masala and some cauliflower dish.... More
