Love the food and service is good but the lighting is too bright. Not relaxing.

My family was very pleased with our experience at Shalimar. The food was fantastic. The service was spot on. The atmosphere was fitting for the restaurant. All of which made the price of our family of 4's dinner worth it.

Shalimar has stepped up it’s game. New chef. The food is significantly improved and now the best Indian food in Ann Arbor. Vegetable Malai Kofta, Vegetable Samosa are fabulous. Highly recommend it for outstanding, authentic Indian food.

Celebrating family birthday food excellent,service good however way too many people in upstairs dining room we could not talk to one another due to noise level and we felt very cramped.

It appeared that we were rushed...there was no gap between serving appetizers and main course. Also, one of the main course item had gone bad. That part was not good at all. Didn't expect a restaurant of this type to serve stale food. Unacceptable. We were frequent visitors to this place but will not be in the future. Very disappointed.

Mid afternoon dinner, was pushed several times to get the buffet which was small & not worth the price. Rice for the dinner was served from the buffet & barely warm. Entree portions were small & my lamb dish was overwhelmed by the amount of coconut. As Indian restaurants go I was underwhelmed and will go elsewhere in the future.

Always like Shalimar, but this time the food was even better than usual. The Lamb Pepper Masala was particularly delicious.

We enjoyed our dinner at Shalimar. It had been some time since we'd been there so we were anxious to try the food once again. Service was attentive-even the chef came out to chat with us about his special dishes. Servings were ample. My only suggestion is the lighting. They could stand to lower the lights to create a cozier atmosphere. Too bright and a bit noisy!

I don't go as often as I would like but every time I go there I love it all. Try not to order the same thing as somebody else with you because trying out the different dishes is fun. I've not had anything I didn't like and the different heat levels make all the food accessible. The cocktails were delicious and service was great. It is a cozy restaurant and it is fun sitting by the windows watching people on Main Street.

Shalimar is our preferred place for high quality, well prepared and delicious Indian food in Ann Arbor. We have been there many times, and we have always have had superior food. The prices for food of this high quality are totally reasonable. The service is always superb. We will be back.

Food was OK, too spicy even if we ordered medium. Used to be a much better place... Chicken tandoori was flavorless

Meals here are always excellent. My wife and I love this place. A guaranteed good meal every time.

We dined at Shalimar on a recent visit to Michigan. We met friends who are vegetarian, and we all agreed the food was delicious and very creative. The service was very good, and the atmosphere about what you'd expect from a college town Indian spot. If the restaurant was here in Denver, we'd return often.

Service was very friendly. The non vegetarian appetizer combo was of truly stellar quality, especially the chicken and the lamb. I was not overly enthusiastic about my entree, salmon with orange and ginger. The bread was really good, both the simple and the potato stuffed one.

Although the food was delicious, I don't intend on returning to this restaurant. We had chosen this location since they had a lunch buffet. Well, they had discontinued the buffet supposedly on the day we were there. It took 40 minutes for our lunch to come out after ordering. This is unacceptable for a work day lunch. Getting the check also took a while, and the staff wasn't very friendly. I was disappointed since I had been looking forward to going to this restaurant for weeks.

I ordered Chicken Tikki Masalaa and the sauce was good, but the chicken a bit tough. My husband had the Tandoori Grilled Mahi Mahi and said it had a weird texture.

Very nice Indian Restaurant. A wide selection of authentic dishes. The food tasted great and the wait staff were helpful and attentive. The prices were a little on the high side but the meals were great. They could stand to do an update on the decor.

We love dining at Shalimar. We used to come only for special occasions but we found that we enjoyed having the Indian cuisine that they prepare dan deserve so well more often. It's always the first place I suggest when asked where I want to eat in Ann Arbor. We always order the Tandoori chicken. It never fails to delight us!

Excellent spot for dinner before a show at The Ark. Great food, delivered quickly but freshly cooked. Service could not be better. One of our favorite stops in A2

Service was so friendly and helpful. The food was tasty, as spicy as I wanted it to be, and so succulent. Had the lamb. I will go back again and again!

Good food. Nice place. The restaurant was basic . I was expecting a little more formal ambiance.
