Delicious adventure!

We weren't sure what to expect, but were delighted with what we experienced. The place was busy, but we got a table immediately when we arrived about 2:00. Order at the counter, pay with cash, and they will bring the food to your table or call the number on your receipt. We had the chicken... read more

If based on taste of food alone, this would have been a definite 5 stars. This small hole in the wall spot has the best tasting food I have ever had. The food is the best in the area for this type of meal. Always cooked just right . They also have long hours. The downfall and my complaints are... More

Pakistani food quality and taste is an excellent. Must visit if someone is around this area. My family and me stayed there for fifteen days. I still remember the taste of that food.

Good Food. Try their Chicken Karahi(In-bone Chicken curry) & their Lamb Chops. Food is tasty, Ambiance is ok. The place is packed all the time so you might have to wait a bit if you want to eat there. It is not cheap though. Four people would pay about $60-70. oh yea, they only take cash so be prepared just... More

Having been coming here for years. My dad is from Bombay and loves it.go on friday or Saturday when they make their specialty dishes. Everything is fresh authentic and delicious. You also get a low key hole in the wall that can easily turn into a cultural experience with all the people.

f'ing amazing!!! I love lamb chops and they were made to order. Blackened and seared to the bone. Juicy off the bone and delectable. I was here a weekday night, past 9 pm, and found a place to sit right away. yes, this is a no frills place. If you know your food, you won't miss this gem.

Go there for the food. It's not a place with ambiance... It's a busy, bustling place with great food. This was the my second trip to DC this year (2015). I made a point to go there even though the I am staying downtown. I would go again if I had enough nights on this business trip. To end you... More

Went to Ravi kabob based on recommendation. There are 2 of these joints opposite each other. We picked the less busy version-mistake!. Supervisor was most disinterested and aloof. This is a strictly no frills experience complete with plastic cutlery, poly foam cups and paper plates. We ordered the chicken and lamb karahi. Lamb dish was full of bony cuts and... More

Stopped here the other evening for take-out. This is a "fast food" kind of place, with take-out as well as some tables. It is very popular with a variety of locals and Pakistanis, apparently, because the place was packed. My curried chicken was, at best, fair. Rice was good and a veggie side is included in the price (I had... More
