Every time we leave the Shalimar, we leave full of delicious food, smiles from the warm (often funny!) interactions with all staff, and already looking forward to our next visit knowing that we will get the same experience all over again. Customers are treated as family here.

We hadn’t planned to visit but due to our booking being cancelled elsewhere, The Shalimar was recommended to us instead! From the moment we walked in the team were super accommodating, you can tell a huge emphasis is placed not just on the food but also the service provided. 10/10 couldn’t fault either! The food was super tasty and affordable for both my partner and I. Unfortunately we’re not local although don’t live too far away, so we’ll definitely be back once we’re up that way again :)

The Shalimar continues to excel in every way. Been using it since 2018, with visits to the Restaurant or enjoying a Takeaway which they deliver to us as we are local. Staff are friendly and attentive. Food is cooked really well with the Chef more than happy to adjust the spiciness to suit your tastebuds. Easily gets 5/5 from us.

The Shalimar in Matlock is more than just an Indian restaurant; it's an experience for all the senses! From the moment you step inside, you're enveloped in a warm and inviting atmosphere. The staff are absolute stars – friendly, attentive, and always happy to recommend dishes or answer questions. But the true magic happens when the food arrives. Let me tell you, this isn't your average curry house fare. The Shalimar takes Indian cuisine to a whole new level. The flavors are incredibly complex and delicious, bursting with fresh spices and cooked to absolute perfection. I had the Lamb Kangan and it was honestly the most succulent, flavorful lamb I've ever had at any Asian restaurant. Everything is cooked to order, so you know you're getting the freshest ingredients and the most authentic flavours. The portion sizes are generous too, so come prepared to feast! If you're looking for a fantastic Indian dining experience in Matlock, look no further than The Shalimar. You won't be disappointed!
