Located down the bottom of Chestergate, The Shalimar is actually located inside the building of The Picture Drome - From back in the days when Macc had 5 commercial cinemas, and now we have none.

Anyway, enough disgruntled ranting! We are here for a curry, unless that is you're some kind of puff who cant handle a bit of hot nosh, in which case you'll probably be ordering steak and chips or something!

Right, time for a drink, theres the usual selection of wines, lagers, Guinness, but i see something more unusual today, Tartan Bitter from McEwans, lets give it a go.

Not bad, not bad at all, think i'll order some food, Popadoms, Mixed Starter and a Lamb Rogan Josh with Pilau Rice and a Peshari Naan, and a few more pints methinks.

The building is set out in seating chambers, a bit like a train, with a seperate waiting room for those who have ordered takeouts.

Right, the bogs beckon!

The room is gream / grey / beige coloured, and tiled throughout, with a dicreet border halfway up the walls.

There are two urinals, nicely seated on a ridge, and low enough for young ones. They are clean and both look respectable.

The single gents cubicle is in a wooden doored enclosure, and the seat is wooden too, on a white bowl. A bog brush, a bin and a towel dispenser make the set here, and all is in good order.

The cistern cover is quite charming!

The sink outside is also a delight for the eyes, check out the photos.

Hot and cold taps, soap, sh*t hot.



Update - 2009:

Last year The Shalimar became The New Shalimar.

New owners, new decor and a new menu have been very well received.

The restaurant is new very nicely funished with coloured lights, curtains and drapes.

Food is also top quality, I had a Chicken Jaflongi just the othe night as part of the "Sunday Special" - 5 Courses for 9.95!

The toilets can still be found in the old location, upstairs, by the function room.

In the cubicle in the gents is a new fancily shaped toilet bowl, with a fancy cistern, brush and paper dispenser. The door locked perfectly.

Two urinals sit on the cream walls in the main bit, fed from a cistern near the ceiling. A sink, Dryer and Soap are between the urinal area and the cubicle.

Unfortunately the soap dispenser was leaking somewhat, but that might just be because the refill had split.

Also in here is a rather fancy metal piped radiator, a work of art surely, see photo.

The New Shalimar is a good curry house, recommended!

“That is so not the shalimar restaurant, the shalimar is so much more modern and I dont know what the pictures are all about, the food is great and it's one of the best in the north west in my opinion especially their lovely curries”

“In response to Mark of Oldham... this is indeed a review of The Shalimar in Macclesfield, and the pictures reflect the current toilets, we were there just the other day!

You may be talking about our protrayal of the restaurant with your comment 'That is so not the shalimar restaurant...', in which case all opinions are welcome, however this IS The New Shalimar in Macclesfield.”

“The building actually used to be a garage/car showroom.
The Picture Drome was next door.”

“The Shalimar was indeed a Garage, it was Horns of Macclesfield a Vauxhall Dealership and the male crappers are situated in what was once the Managers office, the waiting area and the 1st 2 rows of seating was the Valet bay with the Kitchen being in the Service area and mechanics lunch room and crappers”

“Visited my brother in Macc, so we went out for a meal. I paid for all five of us, approx 100 pounds, we all had different curries, we all had same food poisoning!”
