Food was a little more pricy than I expected - service was okay, but food was really good.

Had a reservation on a busy night, host let out a deep sigh when I told him and didn’t ask for my name or any information, just walked away. They were obviously overwhelmed and many patrons were becoming visibly and audibly frustrated with the service, or lack thereof. Waited 45 minutes past my reservation and watched another couple get up to get their own menus, and another couple say we’re going to leave if you don’t take our order. Left shortly thereafter.

We went on Valentine’s Day, only because OpenTable showed openings for reservations. Our reservation was for 715 and we stood there for about 15 minutes before even being acknowledged because they were servicing the people with takeout orders! We finally got seated after voicing that we had a reservation… And then did not get food order taken for another hour after that! I don’t understand why they would except reservations on a night that they could not service they are in restaurant patrons. Very unfortunate night. I won’t be going back Valentine’s Day or ever

Food good but waiter not at all friendly when we asked for another table. Also did not greet us nicely and go over the menu like he should have. Very rude and when we said we were meeting some doctors he wasn’t at all concerned. Definitely not a restaurant for taking new clients. Food was good and if I go back it would just be with friends, not for business. They need a better waiter

Love the Shahi Korma. And the nana was excellent as usual. Sag with mushrooms was also really good. Shalimar remains our favorite Indian restaurant in the area.

We, and many of our friends and neighbors, have been eating and enjoying meals at Shalimar for 25 years and it is fabulous, consistent, authentic with great service. A true neighborhood gem. Our kids are now going there with their friends.

Overall the food was well prepared although the spicing was extremely conservative. I ordered medium heat which turned out to be very mild. Service was slow with appetizers and entree delivered at the same time. Still loved the cooking will order more heat next time.

I’ve given mid-range scores but that’s because I don’t know either way. I would love to tell you all about the food, etc. but unfortunately when we arrived for our 3pm reservation the restaurant was closed and wouldn’t reopen for dining in until 5pm. Apparently they close their dinning room from 2:30 to 5.

As usual, we had a delicious dinner. We always love the chicken tikka- tender and very flavorful. We also enjoy a lamb dish that is served sizzling hot in an iron pot. The owner always makes the best recommendation when we can't decide or are looking to try something new. This time we tried a wonderful eggplant dish that I know will now be part of our dinner every time we go. We always order the aloo sag mushroom. We love the garlic and onion naan bread. There seems to be an infinite variety of great vegetable dishes. The service is great- attentive, anticipatory and polite but never overbearing. Shalimar has been a neighborhood staple for many years and is dependable and delicious.

If you are not accustomed to spicy Indian dishes, I would suggest getting the dishes made on the mild side. We ordered medium and drank a lot of water! However, we will be back soon. Also, Indian beers are delicious. 😀
