“Decent Indian Restaurant”

Okay dinning experience.
Menu consisted of staple Indian food.
Ambiance was okay.
Typical white cloth table restaurant on Indian cuisine. Wait staff was a bit unpleasant.

“Most delicious Indian takeout in a while”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

First time getting takeout from Pakwaan...this past Presidents' Day weekend, 2013. Tandoori Machhli (salmon). Asked them to make it spicy. Also requested free rice with it.

It was perfect. Very delicious. Really can't think of a better entree I've had. Will have to get it again during a future trip to north Jersey.

“Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

We have been going to Pakwaan a for some time now, and really have found it too be hit or miss. Sometimes, the food is absolutely amazing. I will eat it and then order some more to go.

Other times I am unable to finish what I had in my place.

On its day, its great. I would say give it a shot... Its still better than alot of the other places nearby...

“A very good buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

I have eaten at this restaurant for the lunch buffet on several occasions and have always been very satisfied with the food. The buffet always has two meat dishes and three veg dishes, along with typical condiments and some sort of pakora. Naan is made as you place your order and refills are frequent. The food is quite spicy which we love, but more highly spiced than the average NJ person would like. All dishes were identified with name tags. I appreciate the fact that the food is never oversalty which is a chronic issue at many Indian restaurants.

The dining area is comfortable and spotlessly clean, the buffet area tidy and service attentive.

“Just Ok - Menu great by names not by taste”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

I went there to have a taste of North Indian Cuisine which is me and my wife's favourite, to celebrate our anniversary. We were quite dissapointed. No such complaints specifically. The Decor and amenities and staff were all decent.

But the Quality of Food, vis-a-vis the price didnt create an impression.

If you are longing for Indian Food like crazy and hadnt had the cuisine for years...then you might like it.
