Definitely the best indian restaurant in Malta. Tried a couple of indian restaurants, both locally and abroad but no one compares to shakinah! Will always return. The food is to die for!

Definitely our favourite spot for Indian in Malta! The restaurant itself is extremely fancy and modern. Food and drinks are out of this world! Must try cocktail: Chilli Vodka Passion

Great food, great service! We had a very informed and well mannered waiter! Pet friendly too!! Will definitely revisit when in Malta! All the dishes we order were really tasty! We suggest you order 4 dishes between 2 persons and share!

Excellent service by the waiter with good starters with good wine menu at reasonable price. My main course one of the priciest was a complete disappointment the only flavour it had was that of medium/strong curry no other flavour! My understanding and experience is that...the a curry should not hide the the flavours of the spices This dish had NO flavour other than a strong curry . My dish was : 79. SHAKINAH KING PRAWNS Gf Nt €19.75 Our chef’s authentic curry recipe from North India. A delicious combination of king prawns and lentils cooked to perfection Our total expenditure in the restaurant with wine for two persons was about Eu 80More

First trip to Shakinah, didn’t disappoint at all! Lovely meal, great atmosphere and good wine. The owner came over to introduce herself and make sure we were ok, which was a nice touch.

Had a lovely meal at Shakinah. Ordered mixed starters and a lamb sagwala which was excellent (I asked to have the spice bumped up and it was even better). Their signature cocktails were very good too, I loved the Indian twist they added to each...one. Service was great. Overall a very enjoyable evening, will be back :)More

Lovely halal food. They do make non alcholic mojitos however it is not on the me u. But if you request they will make it. They made my husband a lovely raspberry drink it was the best mojito i have had. Food was lovely and...one portion of curry was enough to share with two people. Really enjoyed the aloo gobi and husband liked the tikka masala. Definitely recommend the chocolate dessert it was delicious.More

I would like to thank all the staff at Shakinah for the wonderful dinner we had yesterday. We were celebrating a birthday so we were in a private room and the service and food were amazing. Everyone liked all the food that was ordered. Great...portions and excellent desserts and cocktails. The décor and ambience of the restaurant are really nice too. Thanks to the wonderful owners who were so nice with us too. Will surely come again.More
