This is a Pakistani take-away place open for lunch in the basement of an office building. There is seating in the basement courtyard. The food and service are excellent. The courtyard lacks atmosphere, but for a lunch takeaway place one should not expect more.

Everything was delicious... More

So the Shah must be doing something right. I won't pretend to know what authentic Pakistani food tastes like, but this... More

Located in the basement of a downtown office building this authentic indian restaurant serves up awesome food. The atmosphere is what you would expect in the basement food court of an office building. The food was wonderful. The daily special is rice and two entrees and a drink for $7. The spices were just right. Add roti for $1 more.... More
