Workers there doesn't even know about the gift vouchers. They didn't bothered to even check with the owner.

This is part of the Shalimar chain. Though the Food is good but this place is very crowded and not so clean. The One in Freemont is much better.

Service was a bit more than what you might expect in a place where you stand in line to order. When they delivered the food -- which came out in stages (not typical of Indian places during lunch in Silicon Valley) -- the waiters seemed to hover a bit too much -- like a gringo hadn't seen these dishes before....

It's very expensive for an Indian/Pakistani mid price restaurant . Small portions and over cooked . Spacious but seats are uncomfortable . Service is quick and taste is authentic but price kills the joy !!

Had visited this place with my friends while visiting US and wouldn't be a place to visit twice. We had ordered roti with chicken curry and paneer masala. Both were very average tasting.

Had an early dinner here recently. My dinner comprised of "saag-gosht" (i.e. lamb curry prepared with grounded spinach) and "roti's". The curry was excellent; freshly prepared and so were the 'roti's". I have never seen such a huge "roti" in my life.

We've been going here for 8-9 years during our annual summer visits to see family. Went a few nights ago. Looks like they may have re-painted or at least washed the walls. They should try washing the silverware as well. Chicken leg tandoor always good; as is spinach w/potatoes, nan, biryani. We've found take out unreliable. . . Items frequently... More

Delicious Goat Karahi and Chicken Leg Tandoor...Sufficient quantity; fast service; but stick to only the above items if you want to leave the restaurant with a feel good factor!!!

Have been patronizing Shalimar Restaurant for several years. My favorite items, which I like the most, is Garlic Naan - naan bread stuffed with garlic paste & pieces, in combination with kababs such as chicken, mutton or beef sheekh kabab. Also, like the Sindhi Biriyani. They also serve a variety of meat curries, breads, such as roties and naans, biriyani,... More
