Best Pakistani food in the eastern USA

I lived most of my life in N. California and I am a big fan of Shalimar and Shan restaurants. I was disappointed with the cheap food quality in NYC and DC area. Wah Gi Wah is the best tasting food after Shalimar in California. I am a traveling consultant so always looking for healthy and tasty... read more

I went there during Ramadan with family. They offer free iftari and that was great. The food was alright but the portion size was too small. The waiters are slow. But the food was authentic Pakistani and if that is what you want you should go here.

Chargha, haleem, nihari, kebabs, biryani and naans are all absolutely amazing. This place has the most authentic desi food I have had in the United States without being overly creamy or spicy like most desi restaurants. Definitely worth a stop if you're in Philly.

Wah Gi Wah is by far the best Indian/Pakistan restaurant in Philadelphia. The food is simply delicious with hot naan/roti and so much to choose from. This is real healthy and appetizing food. Try it with family and everyone would find something they can fall in love. The prices are below market and the place is very clean and enjoyable.... More

I can be a tough critics for Pakistani/Indian food as my wife is a super cook but I feel compelled to let everyone know what I think about this little find... Wah Gi Wah is more of a Pakini restaurant than an Indian one. Those who know, the Indian cooks tend to be great with veg and lentils but they... More
