Lunch Menu



In the mid 17th century, Indian Culture flourished under the great moghul Emperor Shah Jahan who not only built the world famous Taj Mahal but also found fulfillment in the creation of gardens of exquisite beauty and harmony, which he appropriately named "Shalimar".

The translation of this ancient Urdu word expresses exactly the essence of its original meaning "The Great Place".

"Shalimar"(/Shá li mar/ also /Sha lá mar/)
Oriental Gardens built by Moghul
Emperor Shah Jahan in 1637, in East Lahore. (From: Great Places on Earth").
