Having lived in the area for 30 years, I can say with confidence that the food here is simply delicious and mouth watering. The food has just the right amount of spice to please all palates. If you prefer very spicy food, then try Shalimar. The food at Pakwan has always been of consistent high quality. I love the fact... More

Had Karachi Gosht, Chicken Tikka and Naan. All scrumptious. Restrooms require attention since the particular kind of food eaten the native way requires washing hands afterwards.

Very healthy and very nice and spicy Indian food. Biryani is best. However, you cannot go wrong with the kebab of all different kinds. Our favorite is chicken kebab. Also, lamb dishes are very good too.

Ordered butter chicken/chicken tikka masala and it was not good, tasted like BBQ sauce and was not hot, seemed like they just put it in a plate for us. The naan had a slightly burned taste on the sides. Can't speak about the rest of the menu because this is the only thing we ordered. The guy at the counter... More

I am really amazed that how come people eat uncooked food firstly and how come these restaurants serve u cooked food. Secondly no one is around to clean the tables. We had to clean the tables ourself, Really. A very bad experience will never be returning to this restaurant ever.

Good food especially the chicken dishes that my son has been missing ever since he came from India. They need a little more organized way of serving.
