I took Aaloo paratha and Cauliflower curry. It was best I could get in California.It serves a lot of Non Veg Dishes too. I tried Chicken boti which was good too.

I tried the chicken tikka masala and it tasted like heaven!! I'm a big fan on this dish and this was my favorite so far! The waiter was from Nepal and he was so nice and friendly to us. I highly recommend this place :)

Both the Fish and Chicken Tandoori are stupendous with the Nan bread. The Rice Biryani is also yummy. If you are not used to hot food, I recommend to cool down with the Mango Lassi. All in all, a delicious meal for a very reasonable...More

This is excellent Pakistani food for a nice and inexpensive lunch. They make good tandoori and soups and rice dishes at very fair prices

This was a short walk from the hotel and very good Pakistani food. One thing to remember is that nothing comes with your dinner; if you want rice, you have to pay for it; if you want Nan bread, there's a charge. But overall really...More

The place is along University Ave. They serve delicious Pakistani cuisine. The service was good. The place needs some renovation. There is parking at the side of the building and it's free. The price of the food is reasonable.

Yuck! Hair in the bread. I brought it to the waiter's attention. It didn't seem to be a big deal. He offered another bread. No way would I want to risk it with another bread likely from the same batch of dough that someone did...More
