“Very good food but old decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Pakwan is very old establishment and obviously ambience and decor is not as good as the food itself. It offers decent gujarati thali at affordable price but nothing more than that. If you want to spend really good time with family in a nice ambience than you may find this venue bit old.

When ever you visit ahmedabad and looking for a restaurant to have lunch - must visit hotel pakwan. Gujarati thali - unlimited thali with sweets, gujarati daal, roti , puri , sabji , kathi, rice etc....even if you taste a little of all varieties your stomach is full. One visit banta hai bhai !!!!!

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

I have been a regular patron of Pakwaan since more than 10 years and I have never been let down by their food. I actually prefer the Gujarati Thali at Pakwaan more than that at the more popular Gordhan Thaal. The food is really good. The prices are quite reasonable. The turn off at this place is the ambiance and service. The place gets a bit unclean during the rush hours and the staff is a bit hurried up in trying to rotate tables and which can feel rude at times. This place is recommended if you want a quick, delicious and authentic Gujarati Meal.

“1st 'aam-ras' (mango juice) of 2013 @ Pakwan, Bodakdev (Nr. S.G. Highway)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I wanted to have a full-meal Gujarati 'thali' and so called up the Bodakdev branch of Pakwan on Tuesday (19.03.2013). My mouth started watering on hearing that the menu had 'aam-ras'. Now, the mango season is officially a month away and aam-ras is an all-time favouriate. Visited there with family (parents, sis and myself), and had a stomach-full meal of the platter, especially the chilled aam-ras and hot 'rotis'. The 'ras' was fresh and chilled; just the way we all like it. The 'chhas' (buttermilk) wasn't exactly fresh (it had that slightly sour taste at the end), and so didn't order again; but the remaining food was as always, fantastic.

Would be visiting Pakwan again many times during the mango season, especially for the chilled 'aam-ras'. :)
