The flavours, aromas, colours … What is there not to like about Indian food culture? At Al Shaheen in Karakum you will find a great menu with various options, from Chicken Korma to Fish Curry and Tikka Masala. To make the selection even greater it has also a section with European dishes on the menu, in other words, there is something for everyone here. The wide range of wines should also be mentioned.
The restaurant’s owner Imtiaz Toor has extensive experience in the restaurant business. In 2005 he opened Al Shaheen along with his uncle. First it was located in Çatalköy, but as it grew in popularity it needed larger premises and after a year it moved here. Today, the restaurant is located in a beautiful house with a generous terrace where the tables are served outdoors during the summer months. In the winter they create a cozy atmosphere with fireplaces indoors.
The restaurant has three chefs, all specialising in their respective area; European cuisine, Indian food and starters and vegetables. It should be mentioned that Al Shaheen has a large selection of vegetarian dishes. Every Saturday offers “Curry Night” where two people can eat for only 35 TL. Sunday lunch time offers “Sunday Roast” which is also very popular, especially among Britons.
If you like live music there is another good reason to visit Al Shaheen. On Thursdays there is live performances, often with tribute singers that entertain with famous songs.
Imtiaz says that he has very good contact with his guests; “Since we started eleven years ago, we have always had many satisfied customers, it makes us very happy and we look forward to continuing this way.”
