THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shamrat Restaurant Review

: For Upper East Siders, this Indian spot is the culinary star of this restaurant hinterland. Still, the question remains: Is it worth traveling across town for? Shamrat serves the usual array of subcontinental delights---but maybe with a bit more flair than you'd find on the East Village's Sixth Street. The Shamrat korai (barbecued chunks of lamb cooked up in a wok with sun-dried tomatoes, ginger, onion and garlic) is pleasing and refreshingly different from many of the Indian menus in town. Likewise, the seafood dishes, crab korma and lobster curry, are the highlight of the menu. There’s also a generously portioned lunch special for only $6.95. Ultimately, though, it may not be worth bypassing Indian eateries in other parts of town (like Murray Hill, for example) to eat at Shamrat.
