Ordered to go, and food arrived pretty quickly. Counter help good, though some language barrier. Got naan, chicken biryani, and a chicken kebab meal. All pretty good, and plenty of food with the biryani. Naan was so-so, and as for the kebab, I really prefer Moby's, although I had no real issues. Guess I'm just a Iranian kebab person instead...

We went for dinner, then returned for lunch. Four of us shared meals both times, and they were all fantastic. The service is quick and nice. Cannot wait to return here.

A friend and I stopped in here for dinner and decided to split the karahi chicken and the lamb tikka masala. I had read the good reviews on the chickpeas, so asked for a side of those to try them out. I'd suggest asking if your meal comes with the chickpeas first because one of our meals, but we weren't...

I don't know what Charcoal chicken does different, other than the combination of Indian and Pakistani flavoring - but they are my current favorite "Indian" food place. The food is always consistently very good (granted I get the same thing most times). The Naan has to much more flavor (and texture) than other places (and it's bigger). The chick peas... More

There are not enough stars in the world to Review this dish - Karhai Mutton (Karhai Goat). I am a Bengali who ate mutton curry almost every weekend growing up since I had teeth. I miss having good cooked mutton in US for the last 2 years. I feel homesick and desire for mom's handmade mutton curry - No more.... More

I have visited the restaurant quite a few times. It is located on a very busy shopping plaza frequented by people from Indian subcontinent. The place is relatively clean. Food is average or slightly above average for some items. They do not have trays of rice pilaf, chick peas , chicken curry or any other cooked food at the front... More

This small place in a strip mall has a few dine-in tables but does mostly take out business. It is family run and the cooking is excellent. I have never had a bad meal from this place.
