The menu includes chana masala with chickpeas in an onion and tomato gravy ($6+), lamb biryani with saffron-flavored basmati rice ($13), and garlic naan ($2.50).
Shikara's chefs strive to represent India's rich culinary history with a menu that includes familiar staples alongside more contemporary fusion cuisine. An imported tandoor oven roasts discs of naan and skewers of chicken according to time-honored North and South Indian recipes, and liberal doses of fenugreek seeds, ginger, and chilies add distinctively traditional aromas to many of the restaurant's dishes. However, the chefs also demonstrate their range by forging a spread of Indo-Chinese dishes, including stir-fried rice and chicken in soya sauce. These flavors—which can be washed down with a full selection of Indian beers—demonstrate the culinary interplay between the two nations' cultures without the mess of a UN-moderated food fight.
