| “ November 26, 2006, I went to Shalimar for maybe the tenth time.
Whenever we go to Shalimar, we always calculate the total as soon as we order. According to our calculations, we ordered food for $42.00. When I went to the cashier to pay, they told me the total was $52.00. When I asked what the extra $10 was for, they said that it was tax, which cannot be possible! Also Shalimar only takes cash, no credit cards. And this was not new to us. Every time we go there, they charge extra, saying it is tax, but the figure is always a round amount. If they want a service charge (though they don't provide much service), they should mention it. Otherwise, I feel as though I am being cheated! I don't think anyone calculates the total and sees the difference. Next time you go, check your total and their total.
However, the food is excellent! That is the only reason I keep going. ”
