Called into the New Shalimar following Macclesfield Town's great display versus Oxford in the FA cup. Poppadoms, pickles,a main curry,2 veggie dishes, mushroom rice and naan were all thoroughly welcomed!

Staff are fantastic and attentive. The food is wonderful and always a great atmosphere. Nothing is too much trouble and you are never rushed. Clean environment and well kept. We love this Indian and have been going for years. Keep up the good work guys!

The décor is bland and the fish tanks irritating. The staff are friendly and the food good and varied with interesting descriptions. Prices are right for the quality supplied. A good evening entertainment had by all.

Booked a booth again & really enjoyed sharing a main course, rices and vegetable dishes between us. Mohammed & his team of waiters and chef treated us like royalty. Bookings now being taken for Christmas Day meals.

We have eaten at the Shalimar for a number of years both in the restaurant and as take away and the food has always been tasty, fresh, hot and nicely presented. The service is consistently good.

When you are anywhere near Macclesfield... and you fancy an Indian... AND you're hungry... then go and enjoy a meal at this place. Friendly service, comfy restaurant and lots of fantastic dishes to try. I was recommended the Karkhana... and it was exceptional. I wasn't expecting the flavours i got from this dish... something different from your average Indian dish...... More
