Food was a little more pricy than I expected - service was okay, but food was really good.
Had a reservation on a busy night, host let out a deep sigh when I told him and didn’t ask for my name or any information, just walked away. They were obviously overwhelmed and many patrons were becoming visibly and audibly frustrated with the service, or lack thereof. Waited 45 minutes past my reservation and watched another couple get up to get their own menus, and another couple say we’re going to leave if you don’t take our order. Left shortly thereafter.
We went on Valentine’s Day, only because OpenTable showed openings for reservations. Our reservation was for 715 and we stood there for about 15 minutes before even being acknowledged because they were servicing the people with takeout orders! We finally got seated after voicing that we had a reservation… And then did not get food order taken for another hour after that! I don’t understand why they would except reservations on a night that they could not service they are in restaurant patrons. Very unfortunate night. I won’t be going back Valentine’s Day or ever
Rich but always delicious. Terrific service. Return visits assured.
This place is amazing. Every time I come here, I have an incredible experience both with the staff and with the food. Cannot recommend this place enough!
Good food and service!
Food good but waiter not at all friendly when we asked for another table. Also did not greet us nicely and go over the menu like he should have. Very rude and when we said we were meeting some doctors he wasn’t at all concerned. Definitely not a restaurant for taking new clients. Food was good and if I go back it would just be with friends, not for business. They need a better waiter
Love the Shahi Korma. And the nana was excellent as usual. Sag with mushrooms was also really good. Shalimar remains our favorite Indian restaurant in the area.
Best Indian food in the West Valley. Always enjoy dining here as I can count on a flavorful meal.
Absolutely the best Indian food! Service is very mediocre. Food delivery is very slow. Still, even with those issues, the tastes are outstanding...
The food is amazing. We like the chicken tikka masala, bharta, vegetable korma, aloo sag and vindaloo. Wait staff was super friendly. We will be back!
Best Indian food in the San Fernando Valley!
Pleasant atmosphere, comfortable booth seating. Very nice, prompt service. Good, tasty food. Large selection on menu.
This was my first time here, but the experience with the food was excellent! The service was good, I wish everyone would have spoken English so we could learned more about their food.
Staff are great, they have all been there for many many years. Ferdos and the guys are awesome. never walk by without saying hello or good bye. always make you feel special.. its the Only Indian restaurant I go to . its the best
Always great service and of course amazing food!
Love this local spot
Nice , good Indian
The owner made some good suggestions. The food was great!
We, and many of our friends and neighbors, have been eating and enjoying meals at Shalimar for 25 years and it is fabulous, consistent, authentic with great service. A true neighborhood gem. Our kids are now going there with their friends.
Overall the food was well prepared although the spicing was extremely conservative. I ordered medium heat which turned out to be very mild. Service was slow with appetizers and entree delivered at the same time. Still loved the cooking will order more heat next time.
Great food! Wonderful service. This will be a new regular.
I’ve given mid-range scores but that’s because I don’t know either way. I would love to tell you all about the food, etc. but unfortunately when we arrived for our 3pm reservation the restaurant was closed and wouldn’t reopen for dining in until 5pm. Apparently they close their dinning room from 2:30 to 5.
The food is consistently delicious, and the staff always friendly and helpful.
Absolutely delicious; great menu; great service. Reservation acknowledged and on time.
great staff been going here for years, missed when i went to San Diego .. Always go when i come back up to LA ...makes the best ever Lamb karahi !!
We went for Valentines Day and enjoyed their special! Very attentive staff and good food!
This will forever be our favorite Indian Restaurant
Shalimar is my favorite Indian restaurant in the valley. Everything they serve is very delicious.
As usual, we had a delicious dinner. We always love the chicken tikka- tender and very flavorful. We also enjoy a lamb dish that is served sizzling hot in an iron pot. The owner always makes the best recommendation when we can't decide or are looking to try something new. This time we tried a wonderful eggplant dish that I know will now be part of our dinner every time we go. We always order the aloo sag mushroom. We love the garlic and onion naan bread. There seems to be an infinite variety of great vegetable dishes. The service is great- attentive, anticipatory and polite but never overbearing. Shalimar has been a neighborhood staple for many years and is dependable and delicious.
The staff of Shalimar have been consistently friendly, obliging, provide meaningful attention
and the food is excellent
Our favorite Indian food in SFV. Been going there for 16 yrs+. Great foid and wonderful service. Thanks Gents!!!
The food here is exceptional for a great price. Their wine selection is reasonable and actually better than I thought would be available.
First visit and was with a group from overseas. They thoroughly enjoyed the meal and said the food was authentic. One of our party was from India. Everything was delicious. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be back
Excellent service and nice ambiance. The food was mediocre.
