Reviews for Shalimar Restaurant

Love it! – I can't believe the bad reviews! Shalimar is wonderful! They just moved to a MUCH bigger location (up 45th half a block) and can now accomodate big parties... someday I'll have my wedding rehearsal dinner there! The waitstaff is very kind and thoughtful. Lunch entries are very affordable, the naan is puffy as a cloud, and their tandori prawns (my favorite dinner to order) are to die for. I moved out of the U-District but still plan on making plenty of trips to Shalimar.

Average Indian is great for Seattle – We've had such trouble finding even decent Indian in Seattle that reliably average Indian is taken as some sort of positive development. Until we find the best Indian food Seattle has to offer, Shalimar will have to do.

I love this place – This is yet another place on the Ave that my coworkers and I frequent, for birthday and just-because lunches. We all love it. The food is by default fairly mild, but if you ask for it spicy, it has quite a kick. The ambience is nice and laid back, and the service is excellent. They're always able to accomodate our large group (10+), and the prices are fabulous. There's also a large selection of vegetarian entrees, along with the usual chicken, lamb, etc.

Not traditional Paki food... – My fiance and his family (in from Pakistan) all went to this restaurant and were severly disappointed as to the quality of the food. This was definately not Pakistani cuisine. The spice tea was undrinkable. The food itself was of small portions and not very spicy. The chutney was an odd consistancy and not tasty. And even with such a large order and high dinner cost, they even "padded" the bill and overcharged us by almost $5.00 which they claimed was an "addition" mistake (which can be seen since they do it by hand). Overall, we have decided never to return (as the experience for my in-laws was almost horrific in how bad it was). We have found several other halal restaurants in the area which serve food closer to a North Indian/Pakistani flavoring which we enjoy.
