The best place in SFO. Tasted the lamb biryani. Im from Hyderabad, which is the place of birth for Biryanis and this place makes it in a whole different way. But still like it, they add many spices making it more tasty and more wanting. GooglePlace - December 2017

Good indian and pakistani restaurant. The staff is much friendlier than the Shalimar which is right across this place. We had Bhuna Mutton, Chicken Tikka Masala and Garlic Nan. Everything thing was delicious and they had free chai to top it all. Recommended if you are craving good India food. GooglePlace - December 2017

An intoxicating cornucopia of steaming flavorful, highly spiced Pakistani dishes. Get indoctrination into the dark aromas of gustatory alchemy. Bring your friends for a splendid round table of exotic living dishes! GooglePlace - November 2017

The food was very good, we loved the flavours. Do not expect anything fancy though, it's pretty much self-service (you order at the counter, grab your own cuttlery and drinks). The area isn't too safe either, leave your valuables at home. GooglePlace - September 2017

Delightful. Affordable. Excellent food. I am not from San Francisco, but I really loved this place and would be a regular if I did. It was an iconic hole-in-the-wall with a very diverse clientele. Great prices. The Keema nan (bread with lamb meat inside) was awesome. Free iced water in large glass bottles in the fridge, and you just order, pay, and pretty much help-yourself to everything else (silverware, pickup when your name is called, etc.) Open kitchen, you can see everything. Very nice, down to earth cashier. GooglePlace - August 2017
