Time spent in the kitchen is never wasted, but there are days when life calls for you to step away from the pots and pans, and let someone else bring the feast to the table. Shakinah is just a ride away from your door in Malta, and our partnership with Wolt ensures that you get to relish our sublime menu wherever you are on the island. Our food is carefully packaged to preserve the flavours and textures that emerge from our kitchen, so that you don’t get to miss out on the Shakinah experience when it comes to good eating. Here are some of our most popular takeaway dishes which can make it to your table:

Onion Bhaji – Start your takeaway on a good note. Our onion bhaji is deconstructed for sharing purposes, and it makes for the perfect primary nibble in front of the TV. We like to pair it with our crispy chicken pakora for a greater assortment of takeaway treats.


Saffron Tikka – Luxury can be delivered to your door, including one of the most opulent spices in the world. Our saffron tikka is a visual treat, whether it’s served at our restaurant or in the comfort of your own home. These are jewellesque pieces of chicken in a golden hue, giving off that trademark saffron aroma the minute you unveil your dish. To complement the mellow yet husky flavour of saffron, we amp up the experience with a good helping of chilli and coriander.

Raita – To help you temper any heat, we recommend a side of raita. This divine and silky mixture of yoghurt is textured with cucumber, tomatoes and onion to keep your palate fresh and cleansed. Feel free to mix in a spoonful or two into fiery sauces; it’s a best friend to those who can’t always handle the heat!

Paneer Tikka – Cheese is always a good idea, and our dairy is certainly not boring. We present thick slabs of Indian cottage cheese marinated in our blend of spices, then cooked in our tandoori oven for its final red hue. This is an unctuous dish that keeps you coming back for more.

Chicken Korma – It would be rude to leave out this classic from your order. Our bestseller makes it out the door with good reason. Our chicken korma is nutty and sumptuous, dispelling all those myths that kormas are a dull affair. Enjoy succulent chicken pieces in a rich and creamy cashew nut sauce – the perfect comfort food after a long day’s work.

Chicken Tikka Lababdar – If you’re looking for something that’s slightly saucier than a korma, but want to try something else other than a butter chicken or tikka masala, we highly recommend our chicken tikka lababdar. This is a velvety tomato-based curry enhanced with luscious ginger and a selection of mild spices. It’s a dish which you’ll find on a road less travelled, but it’s certainly a pleasant surprise and a new-found favourite among those who order it.

Don’t forget your sides – Rice and naan must find their way into your takeaway bag. How else are you going to mop up your curry sauce? For variety and contrast, we recommend a side of garlic naan as well as coconut naan to suit all palates. A portion or two of pilau rice is always recommended, and you don’t have to worry about leftovers – rice rests so well in your fridge, and makes for a quick and exciting lunch the next day.
