Shalimar Indian Restaurant: "Shalimar Indian Restaurant" Budapest Fovaros Restaurant Tip by cbarefoot

Budapest Fovaros Restaurants: 16 reviews and 16 photos


Brace yourself for a truly royal feast in an authentic Indian setting hidden in downtown Budapest. The cooks have a rare flair for curries and tandoori dishes alike. Plus, an amazing variety of superb Indian food, would recommend it to anyone stopping over in Budapest. People seem to think likewise as the place was packed on a Wednesday evening. You'll at once be transported to the Mughal Raj if you head down a couple of stairs at 50 Dob utca!

Favorite Dish: Well, on the first visit, I went in for the staple Mughlai dish "murg makhni", being as it is the test of an Indian restaurant - I wasn't disappointed. On the second, I felt an urge for trying "machli masala" and I had tandoori salad for entrée. If the tandoori salad is excellent, then the machli masala beggars description. Sabji raita is an excellent match for the machli masala. They are great at the naan-front as well.

Address: 1072 Budapest Dob u. 50.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: The place is located off the Nagykörút, close to the Fészek klub. Take the tram 4-6 up until Király utca and heading for Blaha Lujza tér, take the first on your left.
