We go to Shalimar for the lunch buffet which is a huge spread of Indian/Pakistani food, very authentic recipes. The appetizers and desserts are great as well ending with Masala Chai!!

Went for lunch. We were the ONLY people in the place. The host/waiter was polite and seated us. Took our order promptly. However, he had no familiarity with the menu. Also, when I mentioned that I can't have milk, that seemed to be too much to handle. But the waiter said he would take care of it. Then the food... More

Had an office dinner here. Good grill options both vegetarian as well as non vegetarian. Spice levels can be customized to your taste. Good service and good taste overall.

Great place to eat- went for the lunch buffet. Great selection, including desserts. Some of the dishes were spicy, but my Western palate survived it just fine!

If you want to taste something that's very authentic ( I mean it and I am talking about the smell and flavor of the food) !), this is for you. The staff is quick and helpful. The restaurant has got a decent ambience.

The food is sure to remind you of Indian Mughlai cuisine. I loved their signature dishes viz; hariyali kabab, chicken butter masala, lamb roganjosh etc
