Shalimar turns to Gold

Always a great sense of occasion ...

Discover an incomparable world of opulence and fine dining in Derby’s oldest and newest restaurant. Derby’s best loved Indian restaurant, established for over 30 years on Midland Road, has moved but a few doors away, but what a transformation!

To enter the new Shalimar Gold restaurant is a revelation. You will find a sumptuous interior, impeccable service, fabulous food, and the warmest welcome in Derby. Discover intriguing artworks, and even poetry themed on the ‘Romance of Shalimar’ amidst luxurious bespoke furniture and soft lighting, set out in a subtle arrangement of intimate spaces.

Owner and restaurateur Mahmood Akhtar and his son Shaz have spared no expense to creating Derby’s ultimate Indian dining experience, and together with award winning designer Richard Swain, they have certainly achieved this. Richard, who trained under H M the Queen’s architect and interior designer, Sir Hugh Casson, was a London based consultant for many years, and has brought to Shalimar Gold the style and excellence of the capital.

The same standards of excellence have been extended into every detail of the operation and management of the restaurant, from every aspect of culinary preparation to providing ‘the Smartest Service in town.

The former Shalimar restaurant had long had a loyal following from customers who recognised very good food and a warm feel. Shalimar Gold has taken the ‘very good food’ and positive ambience to new heights, and places these qualities in the setting they deserve.

As a Shalimar customer, we look forward to seeing you enjoy our famed food and hospitality at Shalimar Gold.

Derby's oldest and newest dining destination!
