Chicken Tikka Inn opened its first (and only one so far) branch in Sharjah in 2002. The popular Indian grill venue is conveniently located on Jamal Abdel Nasser Road opposite Al Majaz Park and near Sharjah City Centre. Its simple yet warm spacious dining room has got walls covered by wood panes and peach colored wallpaper. There are also some yellow elements both on the floor and on the ceiling. The furniture consists in wooden tables, matching chairs and comfortable bench seats.
The a la carte menu incorporates a wide range of Indian specialties including the Cti Famous Charcoal Grill such as Chicken Tikka (a quarter chicken marinated in yoghurt & tandoori spices ; spicy or mild), Mutton Seekh Kebab (mutton minced & mixed with special tandoori spices, grilled on skewer), Mix Chicken Grill (combination of chicken tikka, chicken boti, malai boti & chicken seekh kebab)...
Of course, rice-based dishes – Mutton and Chicken Biryanis, Veg or Chicken Egg Fried Rice – also are available. Vegetarian can for instance order targeted plates: Dal Fry (lentils gently cooked with tomatoes & coriander), Palak Paneer (spinach cooked with cottage cheese, tomato & garlic) or Vegetable Curry (fresh mixed vegetables cooked with capsicum, onion & tomato).
Nevertheless, it would be wrong to think that Chicken Tikka Inn is only dedicated to satisfying the taste buds of the Indian expats. All nationalities are most welcome to enjoy an affordable meal. The restaurant grill likewise offers a good selection of Arabic, Pakistani, Chinese and European style dishes in addition to Indian food.
Among them, you will find the classical Hummus and Lentil Soup, Chicken Steak with Pepper or Mushroom (grilled chicken breast topped with your choice of sauce, served with mixed vegetables & French fries), Fish & Chips (fresh hammour fillet marinated, crumbed and deep fried, served with chips), Chicken Manchurian (chicken cubes stir fried in Manchurian sauce with garlic), Chicken Chili & Vegetables (sliced chicken breast stir fried in light Chinese sauce with vegetables & chilies).
Open 7 days a week up to 12am/1am/1.30am/3am, depending on day of week and venue, Chicken Tikka Inn offers a non-stop all-day dining as well as free home delivery. Successfully operating since 1972, this Dubai-based restaurant chain is expanding and has recently added to its portfolio one new branch next to Radisson Hotel in Deira and another one in the Pink Mall in Mirdif. Three upcoming outlets are expected to open in key locations in 2009: Jumeirah Lakes Towers, International City and Global Village. Besides, Chicken Tikka Inn is eager to develop its outdoor catering activities and is now able to provide food, live stations, furniture and staff for an up to 2000 guests event.
