I ate here last week and ordered the Chicken Kalimirchi, and boy was I surprised. The flavours were subtle and delicious. The chicken was perfectly cooked. I do not know of ANY restaurant in the country which makes this dish as well. Highly recommended.

Shama is one of the oldest in Haldwani, it's near Bus station due to this it's always occupied. Kali mirch chicken is its flagship dish, which is tasty. This restaurant is really affordable, service is good. However more work needs to be done on cleanliness....In all its a must visit restaurant in Haldwani if you are a non veg lover.More

Very unhygienic. You can’t sit with s family. Very basic food, uses animal fat. Never ever try biryani, that rice mixed with mutton curry

The first thing to note is that there are several Shama restaurants in Haldwani. ( In fact there are over a dozen Shama restaurants right from Moradabad to Haldwani) The one adjacent to the Haldwani bus stand is the most well known and also crowded...where one may not be able to park one's car, The other the older one is inside the market near the mosque and generally not accessible or suitable for tourists.The clientele is mostly local. For tourists with cars I recommend the branch on Haldwani - Bareilly main road near the main Haldwani Subji mandi . Here it is possible to park one's car in front of the restaurant on the road.This review is for this hotel. They have an air conditioned dining hall and a family room as well but take note if the AC is not functional the air inside could be stuffy and also smelly due to the strong spices used in the cooking. We normally pack up the food under such conditions. The taste of the food can be quite enjoyable if one is not averse to strong spices although they do have chicken dishes that are less spicy, like Chicken Kali Mirch. In any case it might be a good idea to instruct them to scale down on the spices when you place the order. Take note they seldom comply.More
