“amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Now here is a place that you will tell to all your friends if you have been there. Its an unassuming little corner take away/sit down type food place that you may not even call a restaurant. But the food is simply amazing. everything is authentic pakistani bbq. The prices are embarrassingly cheap. plate of dahl for $2 ?? plate of bbq $4 - $6 !!!!!! Stuated in little india its easy to find. I would strongly recommend to anyone who is a foody.

“Best Naan EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

There are a variety of naans: Plain, butter, garlic, cheese, etc. They are always served warm. The naans are soft, no matter what the flavours are.

The 2 best dishes to eat the naans with are Keema and Chilli Chicken. Keema is a dish of minced mutton with peas. It is full of spices and very, very, very scrumptious! Next is the Chilli Chicken on a Hotplate. You ought to be warned though, the smoke from this dish will make your eyes watery before you start sneezing. This happens every single time! It lasts for a few good seconds, so be patient while you salivate before pouncing on it like a hungry vulture! Sounds like a Bollywood movie? You bet!

End it all with a good Teh Tarik (Milk Tea) or Ginger Tea. For those who are brave, try the Masaala Tea.

“Service Sucked”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Whats the point of good food if the people serving you have no manners? I am a Pakistani myself and yet the servers/handlers treat you like crap. Maybe they are people with no understanding of customer service and basic level respect. Really disappointed and even if they are the last place in Singapore to eat wont go there again. Simple.

“Delicious!!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Had dinner there during last week. Great food!!!!!.
Nihari and paya were delicious. Naan fresh and soft. Only con was the seating. We had to sit outside in plastic chairs with plastic table. There were seven of us and had our fill for 54 SGD.

“Genuine North Indian and Pakistani Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Wandered in by accident on one of our many trips to Little India. Small and basic roadside eatery has great Nihari, (a mutton dish slow cooked). the Dal Fry and the Palak Paneer were excellent! So was the Lahori Kebab which we preferred to the Tandoori Chicken (that was good too).

It is rare to find specific regional food like Nihari and Halim in restaurants in Singapore. Most North Indian/Pakistani food doled out by Indian Restaurants in Singapore tastes the same - greasy and insipid including the highly rated Rang Mahal in the Pan Pacific Hotel.

I would give the butter chicken a miss and ask for the tandoori rotis (wheat based baked bread) instead of the naan (flour based baked bread); former is way better.
