    Don't wait to be seated by a host as it's self seating, find a table fast before someone else gets it! Also, see that line in front of the cash register, that's the line to pick up a menu @ order food

    Seekh kababs, chicken tikka (breast or leg pieces), and naan - all done expertly in the tandoor. Accompanied with the chutneys and you have a great, non-oily meal. Make it happen.

    Been going to Shalimar over 10 years now.:-) My favorite are lamb chops, kabobs and garlic chicken with onion nan. They have best lamb chops and naan in town.

    Satisfying food for a reasonable price. Hard to get a seat during peak times. Once seated the service is prompt. Pros - kabab, nihari, naan and roti - not so good - their bryani

    Great place for Indo-Paki food. No frills, just delicious food. Our nickname for it is "The Goat Place" because their goat curry is so tender and tasty, memorable indeed. Read more

    Do take out. Phone in your order. Bring cash. Remember what you order. Get naan, saag gosht, daal masala, and tandoori chicken.

    Beware that a lot of the meat in their dishes is rough butchered and you'll get quite a few bits of bone in your curry.
