This place was amazing! I walked in and was greeted by smiling faces. I placed my to-go order and was offered a complimentary drink of my choice while I waited. I chose chai tea. It was delicious! I was given a second cup, in a to-go cup, and was so happy. The food was priced fair and it was delicious!!!... More

Fast service, food was amazingly spiced and reasonably portioned. My lamb korma was amazing! Our waiter was an absolute doll and took excellent care of us. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great night out!

The food was not spicy, but was flavorful Chicken jalfrezi too oily to eat. The samosas are huge but not the better for it large and over fried at least twice. All in all a disappointment- maybe better in person but I won't risk it again. Sag Paneer was the only saving dish- not that I would rave about it... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. Some may consider this place a "dive." We found its unassuming location & decor perfect for lunch. Service was fantastic. Food was prepared to everyone's liking, including two vegan dishes and lamb prepared perfectly. The menu selection is wide so there should be something for every Indian food lover. It's a bit hard...

Extremely friendly restaurant feels family run, the food is always tasty and frankly far better than the Indian food I get in many larger cities in the US. The Chicken Tikka Marsala is particularly good as is the tomato/cucumber salad. Very highly recommended

Shalimar's weekend buffet consisted of chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, chana masala, onion bhajis, aloo saag, basmati, salad, naan and glab jamun. Fresh sauces of tomato spice and mint yogurt were also available. Shalimar is a welcome local choice in a neighborhood of fast food and typical restaurant chains in Green Hills, Nashville.

Shalimar is in urgent need of overall new management if they want to use the name Fine on their title. The food is just bad in all aspects: presentation, preparation, flavor, freshness. Bad, there is no other way to describe it. I truly believe that the people who rated this 5 star are helping the owner OR have never eaten... More

I paid nearly $15 for chicken tikka masala, I asked for medium and received mild. It was an expensive meal and I've bought the stuff from the jar and made it myself and it was better. My son ordered hot...also mild. Evidently if your not Indian you don't understand what hot is. Service was friendly but I didn't have the... More

Food was below average, but the overall dining experience was horrible. It was raining the day we were their and the dining area's roof must have been built from a thin sheet of metal, because it sounded like hail smashing against a window throughout our entire dinner. Staff were really friendly though.

Shalimar is far and away my favorite Indian restaurant in Nashville. In fact, it is one of my favorite restaurants. Period. My favorite dish is the vegetable biryani. I love the vegetable samosas as appetizers too. The food is terrific and I enjoy the ambience too. It's quiet and intimate - great for romantic dinners - and clearly a beloved... More
