Shalimar is Nashville’s first Indian restaurant and, in the view of many, remains the premier purveyor of samosas, tandoori chicken, lamb saag and aloo gobi. The menu is concise, which probably explains why each dish does not taste like the other—sometimes the case in Indian restaurants. The food is superbly executed and beautifully presented. Prices are slightly higher than at other Indian restaurants, but if you value quality over quantity, Shalimar is the place. Lunch buffet is available on Saturday.
