We recently moved to the area and this restaurant is the best Indian restaurant in the area, we visit the restaurant at least once a week and have regular takeaways, the food is excellent and the staff are superb. We would definitely recommend to anyone who loves Indian food.

Great takeaways from here, the popadoms were stale today and the pickles were very small with no yoghurt.
Main course great!

We sincerely appreciate your views and observations and we are very disappointed to learn that your poppadoms was stale. Our pickle tray consists of 2 onion pickles, mango chutney and lime pickle. You can request mint sauce when you order or swap a pickle for the mint yogurt. Please mention this next time you order and we will make sure that we give you the quality experience you should expect. Thank you The Shalimar

We tried this restaurant after reading the reviews on here. We have not been disappointed. We ordered a takeaway from our holiday village and it was ready to collect when we arrived. The staff were very friendly and the food was great and good value for money. I would have no problem in recommending this to anyone after our experience. Empty plates all round.

It is some years since I last went to the Shalamar; and I am regretting having left it so long. We booked it for a "significant" birthday and everyone was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The food was initially a little long coming but totally understandable as they had to cater for 21 of us. The food was obviously freshly cooked, hot and we all got served pretty much at the same time – a real challenge I would say which they met. The food itself was excellent, full of flavour (I thought the Keema Nan was the best I had ever had) and well presented. Four of the guests had never been to an Indian restaurant before – but are now converts to the cuisine! The staff were efficient (there was a slight mix up with one order – but they rectified it straight away with no fuss or bother) very attentive, and entered into the spirit and humour of the celebration. All in all it was a great experience. Would I go again – you bet I would.

I have never felt the need to write a review, until now. We were greeted with a warm welcome by friendly staff.

Our waiter discussed the menu and asked about our preferences for spices and after selecting our mains he brought some samples of our dishes to ensure we were comfortable with the level of spices.

The meal was superb, with well balanced flavours and one of the best naan breads in ages.

We would certainly recommend this restaurant to all, well worth the visit.

Please pass on our thanks to the whole of the team.

Mick and Suzanne
