Came here as just a short distance from guest house we were staying at. Excellent choice. Welcoming staff, very clean and the food was exceptional. We had one starter and Popadoms and pickle tray. 2 mains with special rice chips and nan bread. 2 pints later and 1 pint cider. £58. So good value for money. Nothing bad to say. Would definately recommend. If ever in area again wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.

The two specials that we had were extremely sweet, despite me asking for mine without sugar. It is quite expensive, £1.90 for a single chapatti, and the portions are on the small side. Ambiance was good, staff reasonable and place was clean.

We haven't eaten here for about 20 years. Heard some good reports so thought we would have a change from our usual indian restaurant. Service was very good but we were disappointed with the food sadly. My husband ordered a hot dish..he was warned about the strength of the chilli when he ordered but he loves spicy food. My dish was supposed to be medium but we found the food very bland & couldn't taste much spice at all. Tarka dall was v watery & lacking in strong garlic taste it is known for. Such a shame as we were so looking forward to a lovely spicy curry. The restaurant itself is done out v well & had nice ambience. Got busier as the night went on & became so noisy we had to raise our voices across the table! Our next indian meal out will be at our usual indian restaurant, sadly not shalims.

Food was good !!!
shame that it was rushed by staff though. Didn’t even finished my starter and our mains was already being served to us!
instead of coming back with our mains the waiter just stood there why we finished them. So we felt like it was rushed

The food was just ok for us we’ve had more tastier curries, but they where still ok for the price. The service was ok but unless we asked management for it xtra drinks etc the other staff never brought anything over. We waited ages for our food as well. We understand that it was very busy tho so we don’t hold any of this against the restaurant we still enjoyed the visit

Was a suggestion made by a local barmaid and we are very pleased she suggested Shalims!

To start with the decor is amazing and the staff were extremely welcoming. We ordered chef specials which were super tasty and good value and we really enjoyed our meal here. If we ever end up nearby again we will definitely eat here!

Food was very nice but portions could be bigger, noise level was quite high and tables close together. However it was a busy Saturday night. Had to wait an extra 10mins after pre booking to be seated at a table, although staff were very friendly and helpful and overall atmosphere was good. Restaurant has great decor and a good menu selection. I would definitely eat here again on a quiet night.

Been to this place twice and food was lovely. Could not find fault with anything. Lighting very cosy and was a 10 min walk from our hotel. Best to book a table on a weekend because it gets very busy. Plenty of dishes to choose from. Well worth the money.

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.
