Operating from a prime corner spot opposite the Fordsburg Square market since 1992, you can't miss this colourful Indian sweetmeats bakery with its distinctive neon-bright facade.

Shalimar Delights is best known for its extensive offering of delicious traditional Indian sweetmeats exquisitely made using traditional butter ghee and milk and lots of patience. A feast for the eyes, the counter displays are a glorious riot of colour with super sweet treats in every shade of the rainbow.

Ahead of traditional holidays such as Eid and Diwali join the queue to stock up on boxes of an array of sweets such as the delicate ball-shaped Motichoor Ladoo, sticky sweet Kaju Khajoor Peda made from cashews and dates, Kaju Katri (a cashew-based sweet fudge), melt-in-the-mouth almond and cardamon based Badaam Katri and classic coconut ice.

In addition to sweetmeats, Shalimar Delights also stocks popular imported brands including sella basmati rice from Punjab, Qarshi's flavoured rose syrups and a variety of popular spice mixes.
