We're working our way through the local Indian restaurants so arrived here at 9.00 on Friday night with no booking. Seated straight away.
Setting, food, service and staff all 5*
This review is almost the same as my review of Shampan (next door), the only thing I can separate them on is the staff at Shakira are a bit more attentive, they really are superb.

I've been here a few times and it never disappoints even in a big group or as a couple. Always great, friendly service from staff and lovely food - not to spicy, just right! Would highly recommend it.

Family meal for four last night - and my partner, myself and two lads know our way around a plate of curry! Service was excellent, table upstairs was great, but the star of the show was the food. Four starters, four mains and not one disappointed: the tandoori king prawn massala Punjabi style was was absolutely divine.
There is a good choice of Indian restaurants in Whitley Bay, but Shikara punches its weight against any opposition.

Never done this before so excuse my bluntness. .
What a lovely establishment and a warm welcome when arriving.booked a table for 9 pm which is pointless as they make you wait anyway regardless.
Ordered our food promptly and was looking forward to our chosen feast...
Now the bad points sat for 45 mins saying our food was on its way as it was busy was there chosen excuses more than once then to finally to recive our meals in chicken rather than our chosen lamb was the first downfall but to have the waitor to try and convince us that chicken was lamb was the final straw. this is the first time I have got up out of a recommend establishment and walked out...
Never again

Best Indian restaurant so far.

Everything was perfect. Quality of the food was exactly as expected and the few little 'extras' you are given whilst you wait are what just finishes it off.
