“Money's Worth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Gujarati thali is worth the money you pay . There is a re-fill almost every two minutes. The food is tasty and there is a variety . It was crowded at lunch time which made parking difficult . The waiters could be more courteous perhaps. For an outsider , it would have been nice if we knew the names of the dishes .

“Disappointing Last Visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

I've been here on multiple occations and always look forward to eating here everytime I visit Ahmedabad. This visit was completely the opposite of experiances.

Went for Gujarati Thali lunch and had a lighter breakfast so I could take full advantage.

Arrived at 12:45 to a empty place bar 4 people. We were attended to right away and the veg curries came out. These were STONE COLD and Rotis undercooked. We sent these right back and the same ones came back reheated to a luke warm temp. I asked for fresh set to be sent and after 5 mins I got piping hot curries.

Upon tucking in I was disappointed again as there was no flavour. This is not what I've experianced here in the 10+ visits over many years.

For 170rs there are many other places which offer better food with better service and the ceiling not looking like its gonna cave in any minute.

“Lunch At Pakvan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Though the restaurant is famous-parking of vehicle is a problem.In peek hours it is noisy. Waiters are anxious to get rid of the guests and frequently comes to the table to serve us-even when we have not started our meals!! But quality of food seems to be good and variety of vegetables and other eateries are fine.

“Delicious fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

If you are a vegetarian food lover, and even if you aren't, then Pakvan is where you should go in Ahmedabad. I was invited by a business friend. After getting bored of eating at the non-vegetarian hotels around town, I need a change. So I accepted the invite. And what a delicious fare it turned out to be. The waiters feed to kill....of gluttony! It has a lovely vegetarian thali, now I guess priced around Rs. 150 per head (unlimited) and just heavenly. The food is rich, but then if you're eating in Gujarat, how can you avoid sweets? Try it out if you're in town.
