Shakinah is the first catering venture for Alex and Berta Aquilina, who have teamed up with the well known TV personality Manuel Xuereb, also an internationally trained patissier and food connoisseur.

Strategically situated on the St Julian’s seafront, within walking distance from Balluta Bay, Shakinah presents Indian cuisine in an interesting selection of exquisitely prepared, colourful, individual yet separate dishes.

Great emphasis has been placed on the décor, mood and general ambiance. The end result is a highly contemporary yet elegant living room-style décor that is entirely co-ordinated.

Similar attention to detail was paid to the choice of the fresh ingredients, oriental spices and interesting flavours that feature all key characteristics of traditional Indian Cuisine.

So allow yourself to be transported on a magic carpet ride to the exotic orient, experience new culinary and sensory sensations, and allow their expert team to pamper you, making you feel truly special at Shakinah in the heart of St Julian’s.
