Love visiting this place with my family and friends for Authentic Gujarati Cuisine. I went it again today afternoon and food was very very good. Love especially the gujarati dal and khaman. though my suggestion is that this place is over due for some interior renovation.

Pakvan used to serve authentic gujarati thali. Clean ambience with neat utensil. Now things have changed. Ambience going down. Taste is not that which we used to get. Requires attention on qua3

Great food . The variety was good. The food was tasty with lots of choice. The service was excellent. The bearers were waiting to serve us with sumptuous spread. It was deliciously hot and fresh too. The only let down was the wash room which was stinking. Only that needs improvement.

We read about this place and went there with an expectation to get typical Gujarati Food. - The food was ok, but, too oily and little towards spicy. - Cleanliness is definitely a question. - Considering the ambiance, quality of food and price, this is not a good value for money. A better option would be another place called "Sasuji".

Visited once for the traditional dinner party. A typical Gujarati thali is offered. As usual, lots of varieties. Food quality good and tasty. Interiors not so good. Service very fast. Not so spacious and a bit noisy at times. Ok, but not the best option for Gujarati thali. There are better options like, Varso and Gordhan Thal and Atithi..

Had such a variety of dishes in quantities for first time. Though some of the dishes were sweet (which is obvious in Gujarat), enjoyed it. But dont think will be able to have this on a regular basis.

Very quick service of gujarati is convenient. Taste is really good. Items are many which makes true gujarati thal covering sweet and namkeen varities. Situated in centre. The place is not big enough to cover the customers which makes it noisy. There are chances of improvement in cleanliness even though it better

Food was not upto the mark. As expected food and hotel was not very good. I thought that hotel will be big and clean but it was compact and not very clean.
