“great fast food indian”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

there are lots of Lahore Karahis around but only eaten in this one so far and for a quick eat at good price will struggle to find better. No nonsense service, just a happy scoff and a handsome belly.

“Like the Pakistani cricket team, excellent on a good day - but too often mediocre and no longer a reliable choice”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

I have eaten in this place countless times over the years - in fact used to recommend this place whenever friends asked about the best Pakistani food in town with no frills. This place was never about fine dining, but it got very close to some of the famous roadside eateries in Lahore and around. Out of the last five visits or so, however, only one, on a Saturday evening, has been to true to form; on all other occasions one or more dishes were mediocre at best. A bit like the Pakistani cricket team really, quite a bit of skill and inspiration around, but can they be bothered esp. when the temptation to cut corners gets too strong?
At its best, this really is Lahore on a plate with the tandoori dishes particularly great, chops, kebabs, the fish, and other typical specialities like nihari not far behind! You should still be fine most of the time with the above, but standards really drop when any kind of vegetable gets involved. The meat veg combos, like Karela gosht, can be great if you are there on the day they have been prepared, but chances are you get something old and thrice reheated.
And the service, well, they easily get overwhelmed, particularly on the days when it is very busy and the food is all fresh, so you may have a trade-off between good food and proper attention here! Prices are just on the wrong side of reasonable, I would say; particularly for a no frills place like this.

“An Authentic Gem with no Frills but Great Food”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Our taxi driver (Johnny) led us to this place. Nothing to look at, but very very tasty food was served and within half an hour of our arrival it was full of Asian locals (always a good sign) Great stuff guys keep it up

“The Best Lamb Chops in London”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

Had been Here along with Family and Friends. ordered Sheek Kabab and Lamb Chops.
The best i have ever tasted in London. It is worth Every Penny .
Tip:- Ask for Lamb Chops to be well Done.

Chicken biryani the best along with Ginger Chicken as the side Dish.

Try avoiding King Prawns which does not taste that great.

Overall a Superb Meal with a family.
