THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Shikara Restaurant Review: Shikara is roomy and comfortable, with white walls, leather seating and wooden floors, and the welcome is genuine. It's in the middle of one of the most expensive real estate areas in London, but the great thing about this spot is the value it offers. The menu takes you mainly around north India, taking in Balti dishes, aristocratic Mughal cooking, tandoor dishes and Malabar curry. It's all freshly prepared and well cooked---it shows in dishes like the Goan-style crab cake and calamari tossed in curry leaves and spices; freshwater tiger prawns cooked in coconut milk; and lamb cooked with dried red chillies from Rajasthan. Desserts are delightful and the staff more than helpful and pleasant.
