Excellent & authentic

Tastes like some of the best indian food I had in India. Very casual, plastic plates (not a date night kind of place). Food is A++. Regular spice is spicy like in authentic indian restaurants. If you like it mild make shure to ask for it. Service is fast. Owner very nice guy.

Shaukin was recommended by college-aged friends of my daugher. I tried it and was very pleasantly surprised by what I found. The food is delicious and there is a good variety of dishes to pick from. The atmosphere is very casual, almost like fast food, but the food is much better than American fast food. I noticed that the majority... More

I guess the meaning of shaukin varies, but I understand it refers to a devotee of this wonderful restaurant. I have been a regular patron of Shaukin Indian Foods for around 3 years, after my hubby discovered it and we were introduced to Indian street food by way of the Chaat Platter. Oh, my goodness, there has not been one... More

One doesn't hear "Indian Fast Food," much, at least not in Indiana, so it seemed like a no brainer to visit this restaurant. It was wonderful. It was so unique and thrilling to have so many choices that didn't include the typical Indian food found in the U.S. You won't find "Chicken Tikka Masala," or "Tandori Chicken," here! I had... More

I don't eat out that much, but my wife and I get Shaukin as take-out every 1 to 2 weeks. We've been told that this is like Indian 'street fare.' We make a whole meal out of it anyways... Their chaats, curries, and yogurt lassies are top notch. Everything else is good or above average. The food also comes out... More

You get to taste authentic Indian Chat food at a great price at this place. They have all kinds of chats, although much of them are north Indian, they do have some south Indian chats. My favorite is "papdi chat" and my wife's favorite is 'Chole tikki'. Staff is very friendly and place is clean.

Very good food. My husband and I ordered the special from the chalkboard and didn't leave hungry. It is not fancy and the decor is basic, but if you come for the food you won't be disappointed. I almost turned around and walked out when I saw the "menu" board over the register and bare bones tables/chairs. I was not... More

Good Bhaturra in a simple, cozy environment, very no-frills style. Tasty and quick service!! Also, the location is a bit far off from the main campus area, more suited towards dinners I suppose

Interesting place with wonderful food and the owners are great. This is Indian street food served in an extremely clean but bare-bone basic restaurant, so don't expect the standard tikka masala and naan. Also, don't expect a snazzy place, just amazing food. Their Frankies are to die for and their Dabeli is out of this world. They also have a... More
