We visited on a Saturday night when the place was very busy. It was my wife and her friends birthday so it was a must that we celebrate, they celebrated well. The food was very good and the waiter service was good but the speed of the kitchen let them down. We were a party of 9 and seemed to... More

We had been to MADS to see the production of "Dial M for Murder" (which was v well done) and followed that enjoyable experience with another meal at the New Shalimar. We arrived quite late, but there was no feeling that we were being rushed to finish or pay the bill. Had the special fish, some veggie side dishes &... More

Not eaten in but had a couple of takeaways on recommendation from my sister who has become a regular customer. The quality of food has been excellent ,generous portions and comes out hot. 10% discount and a couple of free papadoms if you pay cash for a take away also make it really good value . Will be going back

We decided to repeat the successful experience of a Christmas Day curry. Glad that we did. Good food (and there were some dishes that available that don't feature on the usual menu). Service, food, drinks and atmosphere were all great. Some refurbishment could be considered to improve the whole experience even further ( eg decor/ toilets) .

We have been going here for decades. Food is good but similar to the other Indian restaurants in Macc. What lets it down is the sticky carpet going up to the toilets and the poor quality of the toilets themselves which are never upgraded (along with several other restaurants in Macc). When are the owners of these places going to... More

Having had enough of Chinese food we decided an "Indian" feast was a priority. On arrival we were made most welcome. Opting for the Sunday 5 course special we were more than satisfied (£11.99 pp). Although their was a small surcharge for some mains, it was fantastic value for money. The service and friendliness of the staff was on a... More

I am impressed with the service at the Shalimar – for instance when I requested hot water with a slice of lemon I received a teapot of boiling water full of lemon slices with a cup and saucer. You always get a free shot of something similar to Bailey’s when paying the bill. It is a shame however that the... More

The Shalimar always delivers excellent food at a very reasonable price for the quality. The staff are attentive and are happy to alter dishes to match your taste buds. Definitely recommended!
