We used Open Table to book a reservation at Shalimar Restaurant for 6:00pm and when we arrived the restaurant had a "Closed" sign on it. I was surprised that Open Table wasn't aware of the closure and the restaurant's website didn't mention it either. It was a disappointing experience and will make me wary of both Open Table and Shalimar Restaurant in the future, though I've used Open Table for years and this is the first time this has happened to me.

Our server was very helpful in helping us with selections. The food was all excellent as was the service. We were there early for dinner so noise level was perfect.

Ac was either broken or not on. Only thing keeping it from five stars. Every dish was rockstar but highlight was seafood curry. Their Indian beers were yummy. Lots of seating here. Will be back for more!!

I reserved a table for a party of 13 to celebrate my brother's graduation. Upon arriving at the restaurant a few minutes before the reservation, the hostess stared at be blankly and stated that they did not have room for us. I showed her my confirmation email from OpenTable and she responded with "OpenTable" never called us to let us know. Instead of trying to accommodate us or being sympathetic she continued to use her blank stare and unforgiving tone to tell us that we could not eat there. None of the staff ever apologized or provided us with an alternative solution. Did I mention that the whole place was empty at 8:30 pm when we arrived? Not sure what was going on there, but seems like you need an in to be able to eat here. I would recommend that OpenTable not work with this business in the future.

I always order the patia with fish (cod). It is a tangy mango curry that I have not found at other restaurants. It's always so consistently good!

I have been going to Shalimar for several years, most often by myself, but also bringing a special friend, or a group from work. Wassif and his wonderful staff always treat me like family, with love and great care. The food is so exquisite! It is a wonderful part of my life

If I could give this restaurant zero stars, I would. We got to the place and the sign on the door said "closed for a private party." Why accept a reservation if you're going to be closed? I tried to ask what was the story, but couldn't find anyone that spoke enough English to give me an answer.

The food is just not worth it. There is no freshness to food in fact everything tastes months old and greasy gross. Never going back. Worst $70 I ever spent on food. Now bare in mind, I am Indian and know what good Indian food even average Indian food should taste like. N complaints for the servers or service. But food is just awful.

The food was great. Only one complaint is that a worker were vacuuming while we were dining. Wish she had done the vacuuming after hours not while people were eating. Cause she was doing it all over and around everyone who was eating. And then she stopped to vacuum to serve a sizzling dish to a customer and almost dropped it. I just thought that was insanitary of her to do that.
