On our last visit here we missed this hidden gem out but this time sampled the set menu which was discounted due to being off season. Very pleasant meal and very enjoyable. We will be back.

We really enjoyed the service in Shakira. Basic setup but the food was really good and spicy. Special thanks to the personnel and your recommendations. We ate in 3 Indian restaurants but this was the best and most "Indian".

If you fancy a curry in Playa Flamenca then when it come to value and taste this is the place. Just €25 for two people for two course, rice and a bottle of wine it's hard to beat. The service is considerate and helpful while the food itself will not disappoint. Not much of an atmosphere more of a dime... More

The first visit but not the last, just for a change we decided to try this well known restaurant in the area, not disappointed. The food was well presented, tasty and decent portion sizes, well worth the 25€ for two starters, two main courses each, a nan bread and a bottle of house wine.

Six friends visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening, it was fairly quiet, being out of season, but thats the best time! We ordered 3 courses for 10€ each and a bottle of wine per couple, plus beer etc,. The portions are huge, probably way too much for most people, including me, but delightful, lots of different choices and flavours.... More

This is the first time that we have been to Shakira. We got hold of the menu in the summer, but it was very hot and busy then, so we decided to come back later in the year. The menu was extensive and the food excellent. We choose the early bird deal and our bill was 20 euros, which included... More

This is our favourite Indian restaurant in the area. We tend to go for the early bird about 19.30 and get 3 courses and a drink for 10 euros. You may think that they would scrimp on the portions but they do not and we come away always full plus the food is always fantastic with very pleasant staff and... More
