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 kids and explained how dishes were made. Would highly recommend and would visit again next... 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 even though several of the waitstaff seemed to be just standing around and the place... 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.

I have gone here twice for lunch and greatly enjoyed their lunch buffet. There is a variety of delicious options for both vegetarians and meat eaters a like. While I do not remember the name, they have a cauliflower dish that is fried and covered in a sweet and spicy coating that is simply divine! The only thing that knocks... More

When my husband and I visit family in Ann Arbor, Shalimar is one of our "must stop at places". The food has been consistently good and they've been very accommodating but that all recently changed since the restaurant came under new co ownership. The prices increased and portions decreased. Sad to say food is not as good as it used... More

We visited Shalimar on a Saturday afternoon in April. We chose to have the buffet meal. It was delicious! Everything was well prepared, and great variety. Most of all, the service was excellent. We were greeted warmly, staff was attentive, and we felt welcome. Have been back since!
