I stopped in here as the India Gate was closed for renovations(I understand there was a fire) Shalimar is a combo restaurant/store. I would describe the service as laid back. Not slow but not in a hurry I had the butter chicken and naan bread. Both were very good. I would eat here again. g

The chicken or beef dinner plate is always tasty and filling. Moderately spiced and a good mixture of veggies.

I love the food here. My husband and I eat here all the time. Great food for a great price. Shalimar plate is a excellent deal with a delicious mix of dishes. Wonderful family run restaurant.

This is our favourite place in town for a daily plate of Indian food (and we have tried them all). It's very reasonably priced with friendly service (family run) and excellent food. The vegetarian plate is fantastic with a variety of dishes, rice and naan bread. We eat here almost weekly and love it! Have never had a bad experience

Kind staff, modest prices, family operation. I could add a few decorating tips but I suppose ambience is a matter if taste

Thought we would try this for take away as our usual along the street was closed for renovation. The price we paid was around the same, however the quality was not. The portions were fair however both the butter chicken and the byriani had mainly bones and very little meat in them. The atmosphere and service was not particularly welcoming.... More

They used to have a good buffet but for some reason they sopped serving that. Nevertheless, items in their menu are all really tasty and gives you a great taste of Indian/Pakistani food. Seekh Kabab and tandoori chicken are top notch. I can eat their seekh kabab at any time of the day. The owner lady is a very fine... More

With a bevy of new Southeast Asian restaurants opening in St. John's, Shalimar remains my favorite. The food is always tasty and the servings are generous. The decor is simple, but pleasant and relaxing. While I appreciate the large selection of groceries, I miss the buffet.
