“Pakistani food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Visited here recently. All round good food. For those of you that want to be careful note that this is run by Ahmediyyas (Qadianis), which sadly is a theme throughout the USA. Not sure if meat is sourced from proper halal sources or Ahmediyyah source.

Veggie dishes are great!

“Pakistani food? It was good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

I never had Pakistani food before. I was impressed with the flavor. I though it will be very much like Indian food, because of the curry and other ingredients, but what a wonderful surprise.
I ordered the charcoal chicken, it comes with rice, (Basmatic) salad, chic peas and nan (bread, baked pizza crust with nothing on it). Everything was delicious. I don't know how they get so much flavor into the chicken breast, every piece was so tasteful. The portion was rather big, good for big eaters.
Definitely I will go back there the next time am in town.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This shopping center has an amazing number of restaurants. This is an excellent place with great food at great prices. First time, I ordered lamb and chicken kabobs. The next day I ordered chicken Karahi. Both times the food tasted fantastic (though, next time I will order mildly spicy, not medium). Also, they made great effort for my dairy allergic wife, getting her nan with no dairy and helping her select safe food. The nan is the size of a dinner plate. The portions are deceptively large. i felt stuffed after diner. This place is 60 miles from me, but the next time I am in the area, I plan to stop by.

“Nice dive, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Great place for Indian/Pakastani food. They are very nice and cook some amazingly tasty food. If you want to avoid the chains and get something different, try Charcoal Chicken. I like the veggie options.
