Shikara, it seems, enjoys a reputation among local businesses (the Beeb included) as one of the best good-value curry houses in the West End. The décor is simple, clean and comfortable; most of the emphasis is on the welcoming service and really rather good food. Popadums are fresh, warm and crisp; samosas light and not too greasy. In support of its philosophy that wholesome food and good health are directly linked, Shikara's menu explains the health benefits of the herbs and spices it uses. Plus you can choose your dish to be cooked in ghee or olive oil.
