Very nice place to eat. The Indian food were perfect and the hospitality too. The price is very good compared with any European Resturant. In general the Budapest is cheaper than other European countries.

We had dinner in Shalimar and we all three were disappointed. Quality is ok but bit tasteless. Have to say that Indian food can not afford to be mild. Chicken was also bit dry and there was not enough sauce. If searching good Indian ,...More

The place itself is not very fancy but the food is excellent, always fresh and tasty. I've been there many times, and it has never disappointed me. Many options for vegetarians. Fresh paneer naan is fantastic. One of the best Indian restaurants in Budapest.

Unanimously acclaimed for its curries and tandoories, the Shalimar has over a decade and a half long history in entertaining Indian food lovers from far and wide. Handpicked ingredients account for the Shalimar's unequalled flavours, with its tandoor lending the various meats, vegetables and breads a distinctly smoke-infused aroma and a succulent or fluffy, consistency. Soothing Indian music will set the pace to your royal feast in an upmarket Indian atmosphere blended with a trendy feel.
