I've been a regular customer for over 10 years, and the Chicken Tikka Masala is always delicious! It's perfect over rice.
The vegetable korma is absolutely amazing!
Always great, love the flavors
I have too many favorites here. I come sometimes (before covid) with my friends and get so many dishes and share. We always get Chicken Vindaloo. It is the best.
The Chicken Tikka Masala I had was so amazing and flavorful!! I definitely will be back and recommend it.
We are in love with this flavorful creamy dish! We like to shred the chicken even more to get chicken in every bite! We eat this with rice and a side of veggie samosas
One of several vegan favorites, this enticing dish, a fragrant marriage of potato, eggplant and green peas falls under the headi ng of Vegan Delight -- and it is! This dish, coupled with a fluffy stack of Cilantro Naan, makes for a warm and memorable meal in all weather.
Amazing Food! Outstanding Service! One of my favorite restaurants in San Luis Obispo. The buffet deals are the best in town. Great options for those with special diets or allergies.
Their samosas are so delicious. Thin, crispy pastry exterior with a soft, flavorful interior. Unlike some other places, you can actually discern the different veggies inside. Packed with flavor!
As someone who is plant based, I love saag, especially Shalimar's. I've come multiple times and they never disappoint!
I always try chicken tikka masala so I branched out and tried this dish and oh my, it was so delicious I finished it in less than 10 minutes! It is the perfect combination with the naan they serve, and you can't forget their mango lassi either. Always come out of the restaurant satisfied and the servers are very kind which I appreciate them for their services.
Yum! So good! Thank you!
What a delicious feast for vegetarians! Usually at a restaurant I order by "default" meaning getting the ONE item that is vegetarian. At Shalimar there are so MANY incredibly delicious choices: dal makhani, palak saag and mushroom masala to name just a few. We've eaten here many times and shalimar never lets us down!
Like everything else we've tried at Shalimar, their Saag Paneer is excellent. The dish has great flavor, perfect consistency, and is mild. It provides a great complement to spicier, more intense offerings. I think we are fortunate to have Shalimar in SLO. It is one of the best Indian restaurants we've ever found anywhere -- even in cities ten times larger.
Oh my, this dish is fabulous!
This is a fascinating flavor, very strong, pungent, delicious.
This was our first time here and we will definitely be back. We absolutely loved all our food and service. The seasoning and food quality can not be better
Delicious with naan
Best Indian food in the central coast, friendly staff and clean restaurant I drive from Santa Maria to have a meal in shalimar I highly recommend this restaurant......btw try the samosas so DELICIOUS and mango lassi
We stepped outside of our comfort zone tonight and tried a new dish, and I am glad we did. The turnips were tender and the spices where flavorful but not too spicy.
Chicken tikka will always be such an easy choice for me, anywhere. But I have to say that Shalimar's is always top notch - flavorful, creamy, saucy but with the right ratio to chicken pieces. Never ever disappoints. Do I feel like the girl ordering a vanilla latte from Starbucks when I always get chicken tikka? Maybe. Do I care? NO. It's just that good hahaha :)
We went on a Monday evening for the buffet with our Indian friends. They agreed that it was very authentic and VERY delicious! The naan, fresh from the tandoori oven, was phenomenal!! Great experience altogether.
My favorite by far, top this dish with gluten free garlic naan and I am in heaven. I have traveled to and through out both Pakistan and India and these dishes and flavor rival the ones I had in both countries. So grateful to have this restaurant in our county
It is wonderful, I love it. I am so happy that I can get this dish locally at such a reasonable price with a good portion.
The chicken tikka with the naan was very delicious and super authentic! I am looking forward to come back! Best Pakistani/Indian food in the area!
We order these every sinlge time we order!! I love the spice it is subtle but good. Always cooked to perfection. We eat Shalimar once or twice a week =)
Soo delicious my husband has been wanting to try it to we went and this was one of the items we tried. Definitely one to get again. We also got the 'fried rice' it's spicy. Too spicy for the kids I am so happy the lady suggested getting plain rice. Customer service was awesome too Can't wait to go and eat at the restaurant soon vs take out.
Want a cheesy yet flaky, buttery carb that takes your meal to the next level? This is it! Like a more sophisticated cheese pizza that perfectly sops up the sauce and flavor on your plate.
It's a classic for a reason! This is our favorite Indian food place in SLO and we order this nearly every time.
I have been coming here for years, and have never been disappointed! The service and vibe has always been exceptional- with one of the owners always at the door (along with the hostess) to greet you. Since covid, I've started ordering ahead for take-out, and the quality of food is STILL out of this world. It's the real deal. I have to keep myself from ordering this food every day hahaha... in unrelated news, I'm going later today lol
Incredible - so tasty, i could eat it every night -- great sauce, lots of chicken. One of the tastiest I have had
This spinach dish is very delicious and flavorful! It has a perfect consistency and creaminess. We get this dish every time because it goes so well with literally everything!
Absolutely delicious! I always request it spicy and they add a perfect level to it. Creamy and bold flavors!
I love spinach. This is a wonderful dish!
Light creamy tomato heaven with veggie balls. Packed with flavor but mild enough for my kids. A family favorite, we always have to get two orders or else we fight over it.
Shrimp done perfectly with spicy flavor
It was really awesome
The iced chai tea here is wonderful, with rich spices that blend with the cold milk to refresh yourself while eating a savory and spicy meal! Always a great treat to have, even on it's own 😁.
Best butter chicken I've ever had, it's so creamy, tender, and flavorful. I've been ordering this weekly lately. Prices are good too, just remember it doesn't come with rice!
