Try out the chicken, it's delicious! The price is good and when you step in you really feel like in india. But the restaurant is a terrace on the street, which feels like having a bbq with friends.

I visited Khan's BBQ with some friends. They offered mixed platter, but the food didn't appear freshly heated and the quantities didn't match the number of people in the party, even though the price was per head.

Really fun concept- loved the 'mechanic by day, BBQ by night' feel and eating on the side of the road. We had a taste of everything- the meat was delicious and the sides pretty good. All in all definitely worth a visit!

Lovely barbecue food which you can share with friends and some beers. Not too spicy but tasty. Kebabs and chicken were good. Inexpensive.

Khan's a very popular place open only in the evening. It serves only meat, essentially grilled chicken and shish kebab, with an assortment of side dishes (naan, fries and salad). Prices are decent, though you'll never see a written bill (not a menu, for that matter). The overall experience is nonetheless overwhelming.
