Shalimar Sweets: Disappointing Indian & Pakistani Sweets

I am no stranger to Indian and Pakistani sweets peddled by Pakistani restaurants.

I have had sweets from Pakistani restaurants like Mithaas, Gourmet Sweets and Bukhari on Coney Island Ave in Brooklyn, and Gourmet Sweets in Jackson Heights and Atlantic City.

I found them delicious and never felt disappointed with Indian sweets peddled by Pakistani restaurants in New Jersey and New York until I visited Shalimar on Oak Tree Road in Iselin.

Problems Galore

When I spotted Shalimar's sign board with the tag line King of Sweets and Restaurant, I impulsively decided to buy assorted sweets.

What a Big Disappointment

Following my impulse, I placed an order for one pound initially and subsequently changed the order to one and half pounds.

In retrospect, I should not have stepped into Shalimar at all to purchase sweets.

The old lady at the counter seemed to be in an irritated mood.

And her irritation level increased when I changed my order from one pound to one and half pounds.

You see, I increased the quantity of my order because I couldn't get my favorite Habshee Halwa included since the counter woman declared the weight was already one pound.

Assorted Sweets - $14 for 1 1/2 Pounds

Unlike other Pakistani restaurants, sweets at Shalimar Oak Tree Road are pricey. At other places like Gourmet Sweets in Atlantic City the assorted sweets are $7 a pound. And Shalimar charges $9 a pound and I shelled out a total of $14 for one and half pounds.

As if the rip off price and rude service were not bad enough, Shalimar sweets turned out to be disappointing overall on freshness and sweetness.

Here's my miserable experience:

Shalimar Sweets Rating

If you crave Indian sweets, avoid Shalimar Sweets on Oak Tree Road in Iselin.

These guys are clueless when it comes to getting the basics of Mithais right.

Overall, sweets peddled by Shalimar turned out to be a mighty disappointment and a total waste of money.- © OakTreeRoad.us
