They have the best chicken biriyani in the bay area. We do takeout of biriyani once in a while and have never been disappointed. They do run out, so go there by 7pm on Tue, Thu, or Sat if you want to eat chicken biriyani. Lunch time this place is a complete mess. Buffet lines are long and they have... More

This restaurant has been in business for years and is amazing- the food is absolutely the best in the Bay Area for biriyani / tandoori chicken/ shish kabab / naan & all kinds of currys - this is a family run restaurant & the owner is personally in the kitchen watching over the food preparation. The food is super fresh... More

Don't let the look and the atmosphere of this place fool you. Food is great -especially the buffet! The tandoori chicken is also the best you can have i nthe area. Also - great little sweet yogurt desserts in the end!

I've been here several times. A few for the buffet lunch and once for dinner. Each time I've been the food has been great. Excellent flavor and good selection. I agree with other reviews that the service isn't as attentive as it should be, but if you come for the lunch buffet it doesn't matter as much. If you're in... More

Its a great place to take away. Ambience is terrible and noisy. Service is really poor. But the great food takes away most of the negative points. Please order 1 day in advance and pick up the food on time else you maybe disappointed.

We dined here and were amazed by the great tasting food! A must try in the area! Pros: 1. The food here is amazing! 2. The tandoori chicken is fantastic. 3. The goat and chicken curry dishes are not to miss. 4. The curry based dishes can all be distinguished separately unlike other restaurants that use a common curry for... More

If you like Indian food this is the place to go. They have a very good selection of authentic Indian food and the taste is right on. It is very busy, however, if you go early there next to no wait. The downside is that the service is average at best and that may be generous. They are slow to... More

Good food..Great flavors. The restaurant has 2 rooms - the front ambience was better than the back room. When you enter the place, you are greeted by the aroma of authentic Pakistani food ! Kids loved the food as well. Highlights - Tandoori Chicken, Butter Chicken, Sheekh kababs and the Naan ! Taste is much much better than Shalimar or... More

I came to this restaurant when I was visiting my son who attends Santa Clara University. It was right across the street from the hotel I was staying at (Ramada). Let me just say this place is deceiving, its a total hole in the wall. My son told me about it and how he comes with his friends. We got... More
