Both are as good as each other. Not much to differentiate between the two. Tasty food, low prices, authentic dishes, halal. Only thing to add would be a golden paratha and halwa puri for breakfast.

Absolute chaos, but worth it! Yes this is what we experienced today but the food was superb, spicy, tasty, and cheap to eat!
The kids loved it too, but due to the busy nature of this place, plus it was after 6pm and most stores are closed, we had to take away our food and eat at our hotel!!
For a brief moment I thought of a certain "Seinfeld" episode (no soup for you) as we were standing in the wrong spot as we were trying to order, but we moved around and still got to order without being penalised 6 months, ha!
Aussies would live this curry place and we recommend this place to all who visit the Tenderloin district for Curry! Well done Shalimar!

As a Brit abroad you know after a few days you need a curry, so was delighted to find this place. Its not your typical tandoori restaurant, but more of a cafe. Its also not in a great area of San Francisco but do not let that put you off.

The food is great, especially the kebabs and the prices are very reasonable.

I had been here almost a decade ago and on a short visit to SF, looking for some variation in cuisine, we ended up at Shalimar.

Not being very hungry we had chicken and beef seekh kabab, dal and naans. All were pretty good.

I'd visit again if I'm in town.

This place is very small but serves very tasty Indian and Pakistani food. There is no place to park and they do not validate parking. I suggest do a takeout and enjoy this delicious food.
