We had been there and could sit outside which was very nice. Had pakora and lentil soup as a starter and Tandoori Chicken and lamb with spinach as main dish. Everything very delicious. They also offer a variety of Indian beer just to 'optimize' the...More

Wandering around town on a drizzly cold day and discovered Shalimar. So pleased we did. Delighted to find it was a buffet, my favorite way to sample Indian Cuisine. We were seated immediately and offered a choice of Naan Breads. One on the buffet, or...More

Visited on a Friday afternoon and was surprised to see they had a lunch buffet! It was very similar in offerings to most Indian food buffets I've been to. They offered soup, a salad bar, rice, approx 8 entrees and 2 desserts. Everything on the...More

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.

Good food. Great service. They actually held our reservation for 30 minutes on a busy game nite as we were stuck in traffic.

We love Indian food and were passing through Ann Arbor. Shalimar proved to serve some of the best Indian food we've had! We had shrimp and chicken masala, seafood korma, and begara bartha. Everything was delicious and service was thoughtful. Our waiter joked with our...More

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

Shalimar has been around for many years, unusual in competitive Ann Arbor market. At $12 the lunch buffet has good variety and is value for the money. The naans at Shalimar are particularly good. Food is well spiced, but not usually take your head off...More
