A fast, casual Indian restaurant, with a beer wall, will open its first store outside of Texas at Desert Ridge Marketplace in north Phoenix, the complex said in a news release today, February 11.
Tikka Shack will open next month, according to the news release, offering diners traditional Indian dishes with build-your-own options. The restaurant also includes a self-serve beer wall. That should be interesting.

“There are few options for Indian food in the North Valley and Tikka Shack fills that void,” Jenny Cushing, vice president of leasing at Vestar, said in a statement.
Tikka Shack currently has two stores in Lubbock, Texas. The Desert Ridge location will be its third.
“Desert Ridge Marketplace is the perfect location for our first Arizona location,” said Parish Patel, owner of Tikka Shack. “We know our guests’ senses will be delighted as we provide fresh, fast Indian food in a contemporary atmosphere.”
Tikka Shack will join new and upcoming additions to Desert Ridge Marketplace, including H&M, ComicX, CB Live, The Whining Pig Beer & Wine Bar, Barrio Queen and Flower Child, according to the press release. It will be located in The District.
