Forget it, unless you are going to wait a long time to be served. Especially if you are a non European foreigner. The food which sits in the display is cold when eaten and the man who has a mustache like Oliver from Laurel and Hardy comedy, does not know how to speak to a customer. Again if its a foreigner. I waited for a long time for my order, when given there was a mistake and also not served with what I ordered. The order when given was cold and served from the supposedly hot pan sitting near the counter. It looked like it has been there since a day before. Even the side dishes like samosas were cold sitting in an aluminum tray for a long time. It looked greasy and old. When ordered they put it in a microwave to warm up. Samosas are meant to be eaten fresh and crispy not put in the microwave before serving. I was so disgusted that I refused and left the restaurant. Not a place where I would eat again where service is only for the European Americans and not for the non European foreigners.

I would strongly recommend their tandoori chicken and their veggie roll-- absolutely unique and delicious! Best naan I've had in Philly, too, and their special green sauce makes everything even better. Their food is consistently perfectly cooked and they appreciate their regulars. We go here at least once a week, and I would recommend it to anyone!

The place looked a bit scarey when we first got there. But the reviews said it was great so we stayed. The food was perfect! Usually at a grill, they over cook the meat, but not here. The service was friendly and it's BYO!! Great price. Would so go back.

Housed in an old diner with simple diner-style tables and booths and a large screen tv showing Pakistani soaps, music videos and bizarre talk shows on one side of the room, this restaurant brings a welcome bit of Queens to Philadelphia. The menu has two parts, kabobs (lamb, chicken, fish, quail and beef), and stews that change daily. Some of the weekend specials such as Paya (trotter stew) and Haleem (barley and beef porridge) are hard to come by outside New York. Their tandoori breads are head and shoulders above what is normally available at Indian restaurants, as is their biryani and bbq. This is comfort food for many people as the taxi drivers who are always eating there will readily attest. Some of the stews can be somewhat oily, and the decor is minimalist at best, but the people are very nice and the prices reasonable.
