Shalimar Bandra, Excellent North Indian Cuisine

Shalimar is located opposite Shoppers Stop Bandra, The Great Punjab and Persian Darbar. In the company of such stalwarts, Shalimar holds its own and has done so for many years. The place is popular amongst those craving for North Indian cuisines.

We ordered for a Special Chef Chicken and Chicken Peshawari along with Garlic Naan without bothering to order starters. Earlier in the day we spent time at Sheeshas so didn’t feel the need to order for starters.

We thought the quantity was a bit less but the taste made up for it. The chef special was a delightful mix of chicken and masala gravy without being too pungent. The Peshawari was the usual chicken cooked in fine ginger garlic paste and some black pepper too.

There was only a faint but linger taste of ginger which was good as not many like a lot of ginger in their food.

The garlic Naan was nice as well and it seemed like an overdose of garlic from the naan and from the Peshawari Chicken. The meal uptil now was filling but when 4 hoggers meet, nothing is enough. So to stuff ourselves further, we ordered for a chicken biryani.

The Biryani was pungent but it tasted good. Chicken was succulent and the Biryani quantity was good enough for four especially after the roti-sabzi!

The food was good but we weren’t finished yet! So ordered for desserts including Mango Bowl and Shahi Tukda. I think mom makes excellent Shahi Tukda but the one at Shalimar was good too. Laced with cream, it was delectable though I can only imagine how many calories one must have gained! The mango bowl was freshly cut mango pieces in cream – an excellent combination, which I have tried at home as well already!

The food was excellent but the prices were a bit steep for our liking. The Biryani and the chef special were priced at Rs.170 each while the Peshawari was Rs.145. The shahi Tukda was worth Rs.135, which is expensive as the same can be made at home for far cheaper!

The service here is good too with waiters being attentive (Even with the IPL action going on!) and quick to respond. The ambiance of the place isn’t much really as it is more of a no-frills eating place, an excellent one at that, mind you!
