I've been to Shalimar three times in the past few years, and it never disappoints. The food is consistently good, the service is fine, and the atmosphere pleasant. The menu sticks to traditional Indian fare, so it isn't adventurous, but it's always tasty.

The food is mediocre, and being Indian, I can say that it is bland and not particularly creative. They also add on charges for condiments (achaar or Indian pickle) which is like being charged for ketchup at any other restaurant. The service was very poor...More
