Shalimar Vienna

Shalimar – Maybe the hippest Indian restaurant!

Darija, the owner of Shalimar, is one of a kind – she once was the innkeeper of former famous Ungargrill bar and the great nightclub Grillx! Well, as rental contracts are not always favouring the brave and creative, she had to close the aforementioned places. However, she immediately tried something new, so this charmingly crazy, well-dressed woman, took over a restaurant about a year ago. And turned this traditional Indian restaurant into something very different.

The location is kind of hidden in the central 6th district in a quiet alley. The restaurant is only known by the neighbours, especially for its gorgeous inner courtyard garden in summertime. Now in winter you can enjoy cosy, dark painted rooms with a special though not gloomy atmosphere. The food is excellent, far above the usual Indian stuff.  But do not expect cheap prices, quality comes at a cost…

As she is well linked to the music scene of Vienna, there are sometimes small live concerts. And I am sure there are more unusual ideas to follow, to combine art, fun and great cuisine!
