All in the title. The food is super tasty. Prices are very affordable. And halal food if it makes any difference for you.

This place is really good for a fun outing enjoying pakistani/ north indian food. We came here (the four of us) in mid August and were running quite late for dinner and some other indian places were already shut but as soon as we entered we just had to wait few minutes and were seated. If you are in for... More

Bit crowded during lunch, but for the taste I would compromise the crowd and ambiance. Briyani is tasty as well. Guests would just pile up Tandoori and eat nothing but Tandoori :)

We were invited by friends and pleasantly surprised at the authenticity of their Lamb Biryani with succulent lamb in a perfect melange of spices, masala, basmati rice with the right fragrance, aroma, taste and portion! I had four sumptuous helpings till I could eat no more. They get a whopping 10. There were several other dishes ordered but the portions... More

I usually order biryani and one other side dish (leg or breast) here. It is "usually" sufficient for two people. There is only one/two instances where I was able to finish full plater of biryani by myself( too much quantity). Back in 2007 when I first tried this place, biryani was in short supply and often would run out of... More

Not much to look at inside, but you'll see the long line for to-go good-- there's always a wait, and once you taste the food, you'll know why. The Palak Paneer is always excellent, queema naan is great, choley is delicious, anything lamb. Even the naan is great. All of the food has great spicy flavors. Give yourself enough time... More

Tried this one for the second time. If you are in a mood for some tasty kabab and Biriyani, this is the place. Didn't like the ambiance and sitting arrangement. Observed that there is a series of parcels to go. That's the best option I think. We tried Boti kabab, Sheekh Kabab and Lamb Stew this time. They were good.

Amazing biryani! Chicken kadai, Chicken/paneer tikka masala and palak paneer are really good. The Naan is really the best! The ambiance is not great but food is tasty as hell!.

This is the kind of restaurant that is frequented by traditional Indians and Pakistanis. The food is quite authentic and tasty. I enjoyed the Lamb Biryani although be aware that it contained several bones. The Tandoori Chicken was very tasty and tender. And the Mango Iassi (yoghurt shake) was excellent. The pricing for all items was very reasonable. However, I'm... More
