Description: Growing up in an immigrant Indian family, we understood that America is the land of opportunity, where dreams come true. We're grateful to all the guests who have given us the opportunity to share our vision. Some restaurants are ideal for special occasions. Indeed we hope many of you, our guests, will celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other memorable events with us. But, at Shalimar we strive to make every lunch and dinner a special occasion for every guest. When we open the doors to the restaurant for lunch, dinner or catering, it's as if we're opening the doors to our own homes and inviting guests to enjoy extraordinary food paired with a rich Indian lager beer or a glass of wine from our extensive wine list. Our menu features the finest Northern Indian entrees and our specialty Tandoori (Clay Oven) dishes. Shalimar is elegant, relaxed, and affordable, inviting guests to enjoy the hospitality that reflects our Indian heritage.

We've been coming here for years. Love the food. Chicken Chili is great, always more than enough and plenty to take home. Service is always excellent, never have to ask for refills, food comes out quickly and is always hot.

We haven't been to Shalimar in over a year and were stunned at how they've gone downhill in such a short time. With chicken tikka masala we were given six small cubes of chicken with approx. 1 cup of rice. The waiter will bring you more rice however you will be charged an additional $1.50. For these small portions you'd be better going elsewhere where the food is better, better quality, more value for your money and your appetite will be satisfied.

We order 2 dishes plus Nan for appetizer and 2 mangoes drink. The bill came up to 48.00 dollars but we're still hungry. The entree was very small,not worth for what i had paid for. We'll not coming back.

For at least three years we have loved the food and have eaten here at least once a month, but the last two times we were there it was not at all the same. I thought the first one was just a fluke, but unfortunately not. I get Chicken Korma and the recipe has somehow been changed--the sauce isn't even the same color. Also, the Peshwari Naan used to be better, but it is still passable. The service is still great and the waiters are very personable. The atmosphere is still very good. But, considering how bad the food is---we are going to look elsewhere.

Considering you used to love dining with us, I'm disheartened to hear you've been disappointed with your last few visits. We haven't changed our recipes or vendors, so I'm surprised the Chicken Korma tasted so off. I'll be sure to pass along your review to the kitchen. Hopefully, we'll be able to learn from your feedback and get back to serving the food you used to love.

Best,
Sukh Bains, Owner
