I dont understand what exactly people look for in food to term it as flavorful. But for me Pakwaan food suits my definition of amazing food. I have been to Pakwaan million times and the food always tasted the same ie rich in taste and texture. If you really want to taste some good North Indian food then "Pakwaan" is... More

Whenever I stay at Parsippany for work, I sometimes place my order online at Pakwaan. Never had a bad experience. Food does have a good flavor and the portion is good.

We went to this restaurant just yesterday for Eid Lunch. Place is OK. But people who are running this place are not too professional. Food is below standard and over priced. They are more busy in collecting money. For non Desi customer it may be good because they dont know our food well and our people well. So they always... More

OK - Why 'surprisingly'? Well coming from the UK, my experience to date with Indian food in the US is that it has been ridiculously bland. I once had to send a vindaloo back because they seemed to have totally forgotten to add any chilli at all. But Pakwaan was actually recommended to me by my Indian taxi driver. It... More

Okay dinning experience. Menu consisted of staple Indian food. Ambiance was okay. Typical white cloth table restaurant on Indian cuisine. Wait staff was a bit unpleasant.

First time getting takeout from Pakwaan...this past Presidents' Day weekend, 2013. Tandoori Machhli (salmon). Asked them to make it spicy. Also requested free rice with it. It was perfect. Very delicious. Really can't think of a better entree I've had. Will have to get it again during a future trip to north Jersey.

We have been going to Pakwaan a for some time now, and really have found it too be hit or miss. Sometimes, the food is absolutely amazing. I will eat it and then order some more to go. Other times I am unable to finish what I had in my place. On its day, its great. I would say give... More

I have eaten at this restaurant for the lunch buffet on several occasions and have always been very satisfied with the food. The buffet always has two meat dishes and three veg dishes, along with typical condiments and some sort of pakora. Naan is made as you place your order and refills are frequent. The food is quite spicy which... More

I went there to have a taste of North Indian Cuisine which is me and my wife's favourite, to celebrate our anniversary. We were quite dissapointed. No such complaints specifically. The Decor and amenities and staff were all decent. But the Quality of Food, vis-a-vis the price didnt create an impression. If you are longing for Indian Food like crazy... More

Pakwaan is a relativly new Indian restaurant. However, there are other options in the region that ffer better Indian food than this place serves. Their service is very good (when compared to other Indian restaurants). Their food I found rather greasy, rice a bit overcooked, and their buffet choices to be a little lacking. I've tried this place a few... More
