Having lived over the road for 4 years it's a shame it's taken so long to find this little Gem.
Food cooked to perfection, staff very attentive, lovely ambience and priced reasonably too.
Will definitely be back and would definitely recommend.

A lovely meal! Only disappointment was not all food was piping hot & the atmosphere was slightly lacking this time around (probably because it was a fairly quiet Sunday evening)

We traveled 95 miles to come to Shalims and were extremely impressed. We had read the advertisement on line and it was just as described. Will certainly visit again when in the area . Best meal out for years .

The menu is very impressive - with so many dishes to choose from

We had a great meal, all dishes were excellent

It is very busy, so it was noisy, but that did not put us off our food

It was odd that they do not have sparkling water, but that was the only downside!

We had a lovely meal here a few weeks ago, sorry for the delayed review.
Everything was very tasty. I had lamb tikka masala with mushrooms rice and my partner had lamb rogan josh. We shared a starter and j can’t remember what it was but it was very tasty also. We will come back when we visit Weymouth again.

Service OK, food not very hot. Don't expect to have any deserts or coffee after your meal, as they don't serve them. They just bring the bill even if you haven't asked for it. Would not return.

Responded on 20 September 2021

It would be nice if you are going to post a one-star review that you didn't hide behind the name Anonymous. That really isn't very fair and a little underhand. If you are not happy that we don't do desserts or coffee, I am confused as nowhere does our menu, website, Google or OpenTable listing say we do. If your food was not very hot, why did you not say something at the time? Shalim (my name)
