Food was good, served hot and very efficiently if not particularly friendly. The chicken curry was good as was the whole wheat naan. Although there was a good crowd, it was not full, so it was quick on a Friday evening.

Excellent Indian meal at Shalimar. Our favorite Indian restaurant in Louisville and, by far, the most consistent in the area. We enjoyed individual entrees if various lamb and chicken dinners. All were wonderfully seasoning and tasted great. Refills on rice are hard to get however....More

Growing up in an immigrant Indian family, we understood that America is the land of opportunity, where dreams come true. We're grateful to all the guests who have given us the opportunity to share our vision. Some restaurants are ideal for special occasions. Indeed we hope many of you, our guests, will celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other memorable events with us. But, at Shalimar we strive to make every lunch and dinner a special occasion for every guest. When we open the doors to the restaurant for lunch, dinner or catering, it's as if we're opening the doors to our own homes and inviting guests to enjoy extraordinary food paired with a rich Indian lager beer or a glass of wine from our extensive wine list. Our menu features the finest Northern Indian entrees and our specialty Tandoori (Clay Oven) dishes. Shalimar is elegant, relaxed, and affordable, inviting guests to enjoy the hospitality that reflects our Indian heritage.
