Shalimar Restaurant Review

: Lugging around a red cafeteria tray inside a linoleum-lined room with weathered travel posters may seem incongruous with soul satisfying Indian food. Nevertheless, whenever you arrive, you'll probably have to wait for a seat among devotees from all over town. Try the meats and crisp-bottomed naan from the fiery tandoor. Shalimar has an additional San Francisco outpost on Polk Street and East Bay locations in Dublin and Fremont.
