One of my favourite restaurants in Oslo. The food is Great, as well as the service. And if you are on a budget, they have the today special for only 99NOK :)

Worst Indian food I ever had I wouldn't give it to my dog, and when I called to complain the Pakistani owner pretended to not speak English how bizarre.

Im pakistani myself and I DO NOT recommend this place ! ! Believe me, as I have grown up in Norway, you'll find tons of restaurants much better than this abomination. The food consist mostly of oil and bland spices with no real Indian/Pakistani taste at all. Ohh, and the service! It's the worst of the worst, and that's coming... More

Had really big expectations for this since they were top rated by Aftenposten and other newspapers, but the food was the most tasteless Indian food I had in my life. Not recommended at all!

This is my first time writing a review, but the experience was so bad that I just have to! First: the place was really shabby. Second: A man was taking his shoes off by the table and cutting the shoelaces there! And then; I'm vegetarian and ordered a Palak Paneer, it's a dish consisting of spinach and paneer (Indian cheese)... More

We ordered the famous garlic chicken. It was good. But not worth the price. The decor is sooo bad and out dated, and the location is even worse. Pretty far from city center.

I've eaten at Shalimar at Rosenhoff (Oslo) several times, and I'm never disappointed. The restaurant is one of the very few in town run by Pakistanis that actually calls itself a Pakistani restaurant and not Indian. The food is good, with a wide selection of standard and also more traditional Pakistani/Indian cuisine. Large servings, generously sized breads and an unlimited... More

This restaurant is on the outskirts of Oslo, so it is not a place one accidently would drop by. However, when talking to taxi drivers in Oslo and asking them what their favourite Indian restaurant is (most taxi drivers in Oslo orginates from Pakistan) they usually come up with Shalimar, so me and two friends decided to try it out....

Having visited this restaurant many years ago and having always been pleased with the food we decided to visit again this time with a Groupon coupon for a 3 course meal for 2. The first time I tried to book I was told that they were full and that I would need to come the following weekend, so I booked... More

Større pakistansk mat- og vinhus i Konghellegata ved Carl Berner/ Sinsen. Den 20 år gamle restauranten er rikt utsmykket og lokalene rommer 100 sitteplasser. Foruten tradisjonell tandoorimeny fra leirovn, er curryrettene Garlic Chicken Tikka Masala, Lamb Korma og Mutton do Piazza blant anbefalingene fra Shalimars kjøkken. Restauranten har også stor vegetarmeny og takeaway og arrangerer gjerne selskaper.
