“Simply delicious... and Halal!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Tiny restaurant but delicious food. It is spicy so if you don't like that kind of food, keep out. The menu is 100% Halal, which means that all meats come from animals slaughtered under muslim rights. Alcohol is not served there, another reason to not go if you want to relax with a beer in hand. It is close to a buss stop and metro station which is a plus on localtion.

“An exotic vacation for your mouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Don't let the little hole in the wall, casual look and throw away plates deter you. While it may not look like something special, the food is terrific and prices very reasonable. Pakistani, with some of the American favorites like a beautifully prepared butter chicken. The chicken curry was absolutely melt in your mouth tender, with the mildly spicy flavor you can only get from long, slow cooking. We also had the saag paneer - very yummy. You must also try the yogurt sauce with the bread. And, if you want a very different treat, try the stuffed breads. For a recommendation, ask the owner what to order. You will be sure to be glad you did.
