Shalimar hotel in Polk St has good food. The Naan is very unique and crispy. The chicken is tender and spicy. I am however unhappy with the cleanliness. I havent found anybody using gloves of any kind. I feel they dont treat customers well.

Pros: Fairly cheap dinner

Cons: greasy food

This is the greatest inexpensive indian food you'll find in the city. Shalimar definitely deserves its mecca status. Everything from the curries to the tandoori is amazing. It's greasy, flavorful, spicy food, and for $10 you can eat
