Shalimar has the best Indian food I've ever had. The interior is wonderful, with a European style place setting. The service is always on point. You feel important, cared for and well fed. Everything is fresh that hits the table and the atmosphere is an experience within it's self.

We have been coming to Shalimar since we moved to Woodland Hills-about 30 years ago. Our children have grown and moved out of the area, but still like to come here with us - birthdays, anniversaries, you name it… Fantastic food, the friendliest people , lovely traditional decor and still affordable when you need to invite a large group of people! Thank you, Shalimar!

Nice small cozy restaurant. Food is very good and the kebab we had was amazing. The staff (which were sitting idle) here are little casual than professional but our server was very nice and humble. At one point the idle staff started playing some drama shows on the restaurant speakers 🤷🏽 But the food quality is good. No doubt people make a lot of take outs here.


Come see us in person!

Come see us during our normal business hours, we would love to help you out!
