Shalimar is our favorite Indian restaurant among the many in Ann Arbor. We usually eat there before we see a concert in the ARK on the other side of Main Street. Yesterday we went there for lunch for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by the nice variety and great taste of their buffet, which is also reasonably priced. We were greeted very kindly by waiter David, who expertly recommended different foods, and whose extremely friendly and welcoming ways made us feel like the most important people in the world. We always enjoy the Shalimar. More...

This restaurant provided a wonderful experience from start to finish! The weekend buffet was the best Indian buffet I’ve had. Naan is made as ordered and all dishes are cooked in clay pots.. spices on point.David, our server, was very knowledgeable and authentic. Fennel seeds on the way out too! Definitely would recommend More...

Food is fantastic. Wait staff, not so much. We waited 13 minutes before we saw someone, and the place was empty. The wait staff was huddled around the bar the whole time. We waited for ever for we could get boxes and the check. I love this place but service has suffered recently. More...

We had a delicious dinner. We had Ashu as our server, he was very helpful. He made sure our food was the right spice level for us. He brought us spicy sauce on the side- perfect. We had Chicken Makni and Lamb Rogan Josh, a side of naan. It was cooked to perfection! We look forward to our next visit. More...

We hosted an event in the banquet hall downstairs. The room can accommodate 60 people. We only had 30 attending. The owner Sameer Patel is very helpful and helped us decide the menu and other logistics. We had Sesame Gobhi for appetizer, Palak Paneer and Malai Kofta and Dal Makhni for legumes, and Ras Malai for dessert. The servers kept a fresh supply of rice and naan always available. Amazing food quality. Will host again at Shalimar! More...

My wife's first choice for date night dinner. We want to get there for the lunch buffet sometime so we can try all the dishes. We're too cowardly to order something new as a dinner entree, especially when we know how much we like what we usually get. More...

An Ann Arbor institution and probably the best Indian food in the city. It's a great date spot. Try the flavored martinis and the Kofta, they're both divine.

My boss took me and my coworkers here for the buffet a few weeks ago. The food was excellent! I tend not to get my money's worth at buffets, but I ate three plates here happily and was full enough to solidly regret my life choices afterwards (not in a bad way, just very full). It was long enough ago I can't really remember what exactly I ate, but I will try to edit this post with pictures and more feedback WHEN I eat here again! The staff was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was quite pleasant. Sadly, I didn't need to use the bathroom, so I cannot speak of those facilities. I might be able to edit in my opinion there later, as the reason I am writing this review is because boyfriend commented he would like some Indian food and this place is tasty enough I am planning a little date night for he and I.

We started loving the original Shalimar in Farmington Hills many years ago. The integrity of the original recipes has held up. This place has the most flavorful dishes and the seasoning tastes like Jeet made them. The only criticism I have is the chicken in the chicken korma was a bit over cooked. We'll be back, very enjoyable. More...

We often get this for delivery and it is so so delicious! We have a family member with severe nut allergies and he has never had a problem with his food from here. They have a great many option for him to choose from and he has never had any issues with cross contamination or accidental seeds in his food. Plus, they just have great great food and they are not too over priced. More...

I got the Tandoori Chicken that comes with basmati rice and potato curry along with an order of Nan, O-M-G it was beyond **amazing** I haven't had Indian food in several years as it was my Mom's & mine's thing to do together, & we lost her in 2016. I decided to finally grab some & Shalimar was a great place to break my fast! I did takeout but will most definitely be going back to dine in as the restaurant was cozy and comfortable looking. Service was great & prompt! More...

One of the best Indian restaurants I've eaten at and I have been eating there for years. Reminds me of the nicer Indian restaurants in Great Brittan where I first tried Indian food. Authentic food served in a very nice atmosphere. The waiters are all very professional and efficient. I asked about a dish I used to order but was not on the menu now and the waiter said they would make it for me... Chicken Hyderabadi (not sure I spelled that right) delicious! I'll back when I'm in town again. More...

Great ambience and location. Food is okay. Service may get patchy during busy hours or near closing time. I did observe that they accept customers even if it's 15 mins to closing time. Worth a visit.

I had two friends visiting from out of town. One is a vegetarian. His wife and I are not. This restaurant had dishes that made all of us happy. Plus, the food was delicious. We all walked out happy and full. Prices are quite reasonable too. We tried some of the garlic naan and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place. More...

Would love to like this place but it's a bit too stuffy for me. Food is top notch but doesn't compare to some of the dirtier Indian restaurants in town. Definitely more of a fine dining experience.

Wasn't sure what to expect. Was hoping to get a tangine for my daughter and I to share but there was none on the menu. My daughter ordered a chicken dish and I a lamb dish. Both exceeded our expectations. We were warmly greeted by a gentleman at the door that sent over a complimentary appetizer(califlower) that was delish! Overall the staff was polite and attentive. We agreed we would definitely return. More...

This place exceeded my expectations! The food is awesome, great price point as well. The staff and particularly the management was wonderful. I witnessed the managememt dealing with a difficult situation (unreasonable, grumpy customers) and they handled it very professionally. I was very impressed with how hard the staff was working to accommodate all their guests and ensure everything was running efficiently. Great work! Can’t wait to eat there again. More...
