Easily spotted from the M8 motorway, this joint has been a magnet for curry lovers since making its debut in 2001. The theme is contemporary modern but the food is authentically traditional as one would expect from award winning Ashoka group. With its close proximity to the motorway, The Shak is a popular lunchtime rendezvous for busy business executives tucking into a tasty Lunch Thali, which is well withiin budget in these cost conscious times. In the evenings, the place is buzzing with cinema buffs having a meal before or after a movie and with local clientele simple enjoying a relaxing evening out.
You’ll find all your Old Favourites on the menu, but the Kick Ass Chicken in a hot and spicy Creole style sauce (which does exactly as advertised), and House Specialities such as Butter Chicken, Chuza Tak a Tak (delicately spiced juliennes of chicken in a potent fusion of onions and peppers_ and Rara Gosht, chunks of lamb and minced lamb simmered in a rich masala tarka with a fragrant fresh coriander come highly recommended.
