Went here last night for dinner with my family who all eat out for Indian often. We all agreed the food at Shalimar was exceptionally good. Everything we ordered was tasty and fresh and authentic! Would highly recommend for delicious Indian food and friendly service!

We were looking for a good restaurant around Bay street, and the smell of Indian cuisine attracted us. And not disappointed me. Maharaja's Banquet offers multiple small portions where you can try the best specialities and it was just delicious and tasty. Service was friendly and superior!

Been coming here for years. food is always great, the atmosphere is good but the service is sometimes a bit hit and miss, Some nights great, other nights not so good. But overall a great restaurant.

BEST EVER. We've had our fair share of Indian food and this is hands down the best restaurant in Melbourne. Not only is the cuisine incredible, but the atmosphere is great and service is impeccable. Heaps of choice on the menu, loads of veggie options but plenty of meat too- can be made mild or super hot. Price is extremely... More
