Excellent Indian restaurant that is a must to try in Ann Arbor. The sasame gobi, chicken makhani, garlic naan, and lamb dinner were all amazing. A must try for great Indian food.

Shalimar has stepped up its game with a new chef. Food has better flavor, less salty. Excellent! Vegetable Malai Kofta, Vegetable Samosa are outstanding! Nice selection of beer.
