Nice cilantro and mint chicken

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...
Iqbal was my waiter and his service was very exceptional. His manners were very professional towards me and the other tables around me. And The food was amazing!
Absolute stellar food. Ashus service was excellent.
Always reliable Indian food...Tasty and affordable.David was an excellent server
Great food and great staff. Please try Khoya Kaju curry. Awesome.
Amazing experience, definitely one of the best restaurants in town. The staff was spectacular especially the host Mrunal, was really nice and friendly. I very much recommend it.
It’s an incredible place with good service and especially the host Mrunal welcomes all the guests really warmly and is very kind. Looking forward to come back soon.
Most Delicious Indian cuisine I ever had. You guys rock. Server was really friendly & attending. Food I can give more 5 star :)
Really good food I am going to come back soon. Good service, best Indian food. I am going to recommend my friends about this restaurant.
I ordered dal tadka with jira rais super item.
My experience here was amazing and Mrunal was such a nice and kind host.
I love this restaurant..i have never ate Indian food until one time a year ago and i didn't like it but this food is sooo good and my server was David Cole and he did an excellent job and was very informative about where he works at...i will come there again and i want his section every time. Thank you for great food. More...
Easily 5 stars food! Officially my favorite Indian food restaurant. Five stars service too! Thank you for taking care of us, David!
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...
I like their chicken tandoori. I also tried Chicken makhani but not impressive.
Had the vegetable pakoras and Lamb Vindaloo.. both were great. David did a great job guiding us through the variety of dishes.
Definitely recommend this restaurant. Great food! Owner Samir was fabulous.
Tandoori chicken was delicious. David was great. He was friendly and we enjoyed the experience.
Wow Test and Best service.I M Loving IT
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...
As always, a great Indian meal at a great Indian restaurant. Shalimar is our favorite And excellent service from David -- thanks, David, for making our experience so enjoyable!
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...
I absolutely love this place!! One of the waiters, Mrunal, was so wonderful to me and she gave the best service I've ever experienced. Definitely will be going there again. More...
Overall awesome experience. Great food and great service! The host Mrunal was a very nice young lady and made a very welcoming atmosphere from the second I walked in. Will definitely be coming back.
It was an incredible place with great experienced staff especially Mrunal. Very kind and professional.
One of my favorites restaurants, everything was amazing, the food, the place and the staff. The host Mrunal was super and very cheerful.
Very nice lunch buffet. Very friendly and helpful staff
This is a really great restaurant, loved everything I ate there for dinner and buffet lunch, staff very friendly, providing great service.. great location at the center of downtown AA. Ashu was our waiter, he even entertained our baby so we could enjoy the food.Definitely recommend.. More...
For years they are best for Indian Food. Owner Sam is very professional when it comes to Service.We went to Shalimar with whole Family. Food is so good whether its Kesri paneer tikka and chicken tikka masala.. and ya their mango lassi and icecream are extremely delicious.I received 5 stars service by their servers Keep it up great service and whenever we are in town , we will be your guest. More...
Delicious Indian food can be found here! I highly recommend the buffet and the malai kofta Prices are moderate but the quality is very high. If you love Indian food you need to eat here! More...
I've had love-hate for Shalimar since moving to Ann Arbor, but as of late the food has been amazingly good. The buffet the past few times has been absolutely delicious.
Food was excellent. Great variety. Ambience was very appropriate. Service was outstanding with our waiter Ashu, who really knows how to make you feel home. Just became my favorite place to eat Indian food. More...
Ashu was a great host gave us the best recommendations
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...
Excellent restaurant!!! Great service, people working here are all well trained. Ashu and Iqbal provided outstanding service every-time I dinned in Shalimar. Way to go guys
Great food and service. We had the punjabi masala and the chicken makhani. Absolutely delicious.
Great food, great staff, great outdoor patio. I'm in love.

great Indian food, luv to sit outside
They offer a great buffet with tons of vegetarian options. The server walked us through the options, pointing out which ones had nuts (nut allergy). And the bread was amazing. Will definitely be back! More...
Fantastic onion kulcha, barjan bhartha was a bit on the salty side and a little overcooked but still very tasty. Worth a stop if you're in the area...
Very impressed! Amazing food and service! I will definitely be coming back!
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...
Everything was very good.
Tasty and affordable!
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. More...
Very delicious food, outstanding service, and just an amazing experience as soon as you walk in!
Have been here a few times and it has always been great. Mango lassi & Samosa are the highlight. Lunch buffet is really tasty & worth
Good atmosphere, good food, good service. I personally liked the chicken marinated in cream cheese.

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...
Both the food and service are excellent here. Our server gave good recommendations and the food was prepared at the spice levels we requested.
We always enjoye Shalimar. The menu is large and they have great vegetarian & vegan options. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. We like to sit up by the front window because it has the best view. 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...
Delicious food and excellent service! Tonight was our first experience eating Indian cuisine. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly with his recommendations and my husband and I both truly enjoyed our experiences. We would recommend this restaurant to friends and family, and we will definitely be coming back ourselves. 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...
The food is amazing and the wait staff so friendly. Every time we are in Ann Arbor we eat there as no other Indian restaurant is as good. We've been eating there for 20 years. More...
This place was great. We ordered Lamb chops and chicken masala? (The first menu in curry categories) and they were nice. We will visit there again definitely. 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...
Food is good, staff is friendly. Ambiance is great. Prices are higher than other Indian restaurants.
Nice Indian food with excellent staff. The staff knows their food and their suggestions were super as well. A good place to sit outside and nice indoor seating as well.
My personal favorite of the indian restaurants in town. Good food, excellent location, spacious restaurant with good service. The food is approachable and they serve plenty of meat and vegetarian options, as well as alcohol and fresh naan. More...
I really enjoy this place every time. The dishes have the right amount of flavor and spice.
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.
For the birds More...
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...
What excellent hospitality! The service was lovely and the food was delicious! Our Chicken Tikka Masala delicately balanced cardamom and tomato flavors with the perfect amount of heat, and the chicken was tender and juicy!
Delicious appetizers and soup. Menu is very descriptive and makes choosing easy. We had a party of 7 and each had a different dish. Never an empty glass.
2nd time eating here. This is my new lunch spot with the wife.
The staff was very friendly and prompt. The food was fresh and seasoned very nicely. We will definitely be back!
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...
FABULOUS food, amazing service in a clean, comfortable atmosphere. Have dined here before and the consistent excellence keeps me and my friends coming back.
Delicious Indian cuisine... Enjoyed the food with my family and friends. The service is fast and staff are very friendly. The price is affordable.
