The servings were big so... More

now the restaurant has added white table cloths, but the food is still wonderful, fragrant, tasty and very reasonable. it is truly a local pakistani place with loyal customers and great service. it is worth any wait and they do take out. ovens are going smoking and flavorful.

The Best Indian in The Bay Area - and definitely worth the drive to Berkeley. Shalimar was my favorite until I tried this place.
