Great food, fab service

Exceptional Indian food. A cool and trendy Indian restaurant generally hard to find in Geelong with a warn and welcoming staff. chicken65 was simply awesome and went so well with the India Pale ale, (the beer I tried here for the first time). They also had a great wine list to go with the main course. Will be back soon!

Authentic and Seriously Good Indian Food with Great Service.

The best Indian food i've had in geelong. We visit on geelong on quite a few weekends, and this was the second time we had food at house of Shalimar. Absolutely fabulous. I will never forget their crab curry! Still makes my mouth water.

Stimulating taste buds bite after bite

Food and travel are euphoric experiences, and scrumptious food coupled with an amazing trip is double the delight. Shalimar gives you that happy vibe, the aura on entering the restaurant, the always smiling faces of the staff, and of course a tasty food fiesta. And all of this in the beautiful and crazy Australia, what else can a traveller with eternal hunger pangs ask for. Coming to the dishes, the chicken 65 as a starter was just perfect, then there was an intense fight between the malabari prawn curry and the dhaba goat curry for the top position, the prawns ended up being the most fulfilling. Not too far behind was the badami lamb korma, but this dish was mostly under my friend's purview. In desserts we tried the sherbet falooda, as it was highly recommended by the staff, and we ended up enjoying it to the core. The portions are so good and satisfying, you do not want the water to neutralize the wonderful aftertaste of the juiciness lingering on. I would definitely recommend a visit to this place.

Amazing Food Served with a Smile

I'm not the usual posting reviews and comments type, but this experience forced me to. Amazing food, served with a smile, didn't want the evening to end. Recommended for authentic Indian Cuisine.

House of Shalimar Overview

Not far from the Corio Bay Foreshore Reserve is Geelong’s go to location for authentic Indian dining, House of Shalimar. A royal red interior, floral carpets and golden embossed chairs are enough to make new entrants feel like a king about to sit down to a feast. A lengthy menu has something to suit all palates and embodies a focus on Southern Indian cuisine, like the alluring chicken 65 with spicy deep fried chicken typical of the Chennai region, cooked with curry leaves and served with onion rings and lemon. Classics abound, like the tender butter chicken, marinated overnight in yoghurt and aromatic spices, not to mention the popular Hyderabadi chicken biryani, or for a legitimate taste of Shalimar, opt for the Shalimar goat biryani. A lassi is great as a cold, palate cleansing drink.

House of Shalimar Menu Sample

Dhaba goat curry with mutton cooked slowly in a mix of whole spices, onion and tomato gravy.
