excellent buffet with lots of choices. Food had good spicy flavor without being over powering. Service is great with them grabbing your plate while you are still chewing. Empty plates on table are gone instantly.

This place has good Indian food. Only place around really. We like to go their for the lunch buffet. That way you can try a bunch of different dishes and find one that you like, rather than getting stuck with something that you can't eat. The tandoori chicken and the bread is very good. We usually go about once a month here for a work lunch with an Indian vendor of ours.

We found this place with a search for nearby Indian restaurants and this was a great find. the staff was very friendly, attentive and accommodating. We had the buffet and the vegetarian dishes were outstanding. The butter chicken was even better. My wife elected to pass on desert and it was her loss. I had an assortment but the mango kulfi was KILLER. My first encounter with this vert tasty ice cream treat but it will not be my last. Indeed, I know I will ave more at this super place

We have visited Shikara many times in the past and both the food and service are usually excellent. Unfortunately, we experienced very disappointing service on our Wednesday night visit this week, despite the restaurant not being busier than usual.

We had to wait quite a while to place our order, and in the end our entrées came before the appetizer. Our waters were also not refilled as often as needed.

The food was excellent, and we will return in the future as this is the first time we have ever had problems, but it was a disappointing experience.
