Shalimar Tandoor Grill and Bar dishes out delicious fare drawn from the well of exotic cuisines on the Indian subcontinent. Gullets genuflect before the altar of tandoor, a clay oven that conjures naan (fresh bread) ($2–$4) and oxymorons with tandoori prawns ($20 for 6). Taste buds will be enticed by crispy starters such as mixed vegetable pakoras ($5) or the tandoor grilled malai chicken kebab ($14). Savory chicken, lamb, and goat are prepared in a cornucopia of curried dishes such as vindaloo, korma, and rogan josh ($12–$17). Water your mouth gardens with made-from-scratch desserts ($4) and sweet, mango, or salted-mint lassi, a yogurt beverage concocted onsite ($3).

Shalimar Tandoor Grill and Bar
Realizing the region's dearth of Indian eateries, the owners of Shalimar Tandoor Grill and Bar opened their doors to give their friends and neighbors a first or umpteenth taste of the subcontinent's cuisine. The decadent dining room of deep red booths and walls hosts a panoply of vibrant spices and rich aromas that emanate from curries, kebabs, and tandoor-grilled dishes custom-spiced to four levels of heat. To cool down tongues and thwart the growth of uvula cactus patches, the owners added a full bar stocked with domestic and Indian beers and an impressive list of classic and house cocktails infused with an Indian twist.
