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 have been eating here for many years and have never been disappointed by a meal. Excellent food and an excellent value, too.

First time to Shalimar but an enjoyable evening. Competent service who ask about level of spice for the food orders.
Will definitely make a return visit.

I have dined at Shalimar several times in the past and always found both the food and service to be excellent. This time the food was good, but the service and attitudes of the wait staff and management were so bad that the entire experience was terrible. I will never dine there again.

From the staff, food, and restaurant display, dining at Shalimar will provide a direct experience with Indian culture. The staff was courteous and kind. The menu offers many options. Not vegan-friendly but vegetarians can dine comfortably. Price is very reasonable.

We enjoyed the food. We went during lunch and order off of the menu to take home as well. While the best way to get your moneys worth is to just eat the buffet. The plate that we took home was expensive and the portion was not as big as i thoight it was going to be.

The food was absolutely amazing. The appetizers and mains were all very authentic and presented in a traditional fashion, with all the plates in the middle of the table. The food was truly delicious.

On top of that, it is a family run restaurant that they clearly pour their hearts and souls into. The service was impeccable and they want you to really enjoy your experience there. They don't just treat you like a transaction to make money, but instead treat you like a guest. Overall, a fantastic experience.

Shalimar has wonderful curry dishes that can be adjusted for a desired level of spiciness by telling the waiter mild, nedium or hot. I really enjoyed the Lamb Korma.

I have never had a bad meal at Shalimar. However, their lunch price is now out of my range ($11). A better value when it was under $10.

Great service as usual. They graciously accommodated our ever expanding party. The food was fresh and plentiful. My parents are regulars here so it was nice to be greeted as valued guests. If you know you will have a big group, making a reservation is key.

Staff did not seem to realize we had a standing reservation for 7 through Open Table. They had to prepare a table for six and fit in another setting and asked us several times for clarification of did we had a reservation and where did we make it.
