Canberra’s newest gourmet fast food restaurant, Tikka Take, has just flung its doors open on Genge Street, serving up delicious, affordable and fresh food with an Indian flare.
The food embraces traditional Indian spices while offering new and unique blends and flavours. Tikka Take serves up premium quality Australian produce, made to order and cooked right in front of your eyes.
The first restaurant of its kind, Tikka Take is shaking up perceptions of Indian cuisine. Founder and owner Ankit Patel says that his tikkas are not like your average Indian fare.
“Tikka is an ancient food and is very famous in India. It is simply the cooking of meat on skewers over heat,” he explains.
“What we aim to achieve is a new way of enjoying tikka, designed for today’s active and busy lifestyle.
“Everything we serve is completely unique. We really want to give people something they’ve never tried before in Canberra or Australia.”
The new restaurant features a DIY juice bar, state-of-the-art cooking technology, and a spacious sitting area made from recyclable material.
“Our philosophy shows in every aspect of Tikka Take. Our design layout uses industrial, raw materials. We only serve natural produce and all our packaging is bio-degradable and eco-friendly,” says Ankit.
Ankit and his wife, Jyoti, have years of experience managing and owning franchises around Canberra. Quitting his day job in engineering in 2015, Ankit decided it was time that they created their own restaurant, from this Tikka Take was born.
“It may be fast food, but it is healthy and wholesome. There definitely aren’t enough options like this in Canberra, so we are excited to provide them,” Ankit says…
