This place has good Indian food. The restaurant feels like a hole in the wall. Don't care much for it's decor, so I bought the food to-go. The chicken tika, goat curry, and the garlic nan tasted awesome. It was a little spicy for my child, but perfect for us.

The taste is good, don't get me wrong. The flys at the place and less portions of meat is the reason why this does not get a 5 star review. The cashier and serving staff are usually grim(never smile) and I go here at least monthly to pickup food. This is a CASH ONLY restaurant. Chicken Biryani and Kebob are... More

We found this place accidently and thank goodness we did! If you are looking for a nice relaxing sit down dinner and staff to wait on you politely pls go somewhere else. This is mainly a take out restaurant with some tables and chairs. Have not found a single dish that is below average. Best Biriyani veg or non veg.... More

This is one of the best restaurants for North Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The food is always hot and fresh and the quality is amazingly consistent over the years. They only accept cash so please be aware. The price is reasonable. Expect to stand in line to place your order during peak times. Finding a vacant table is always a... More

We've been coming to Pakwan for years every time we visit family in Fremont. Over the course of a 2 day visit, we'll probably eat Pakwan 3 times! My favorite is of course the biryani but they have great kabobs too. Our vegetarian family members love the paneer and chole. It's almost impossible to find a dish you don't love.... More
