I ordered the chicken biryani.
The portion size was good and there was a good amount of flavorful, well-cocked chicken in it.
I also ordered vegetable samosa which weren't bad but not the knock-out amazing as is the case with the biryani. I really liked the green mint sauce that comes with samosas.
I'll definitely be back for that biryani—great!

This is probably not the best Indian/Pakistani restaurant I have been to, but it is decent for San Francisco.
I had the Karahi Chicken ($11.49) and Garlic Naan ($1.99).
The Karahi Chicken was a little dry. It was not spicy at all and just tasted ok. It looked like there were too many cumin seeds. We spent some time picking them out of the dish.
I probably won't get the Garlic Naan next time. It tasted boring and I did not taste any garlic. I was expecting it to be fluffier though. The only good part about it was that it was very warm. I've had better naan at other restaurants.

One thing to keep in mind is that this is not really a full-service restaurant. Meaning: you order at the counter and they bring you your food to your table, but you're in charge of filling your own water, getting your own silverware, etc. Pretty standard in these types of restaurants in SF but don't expect a plush or romantic ambiance.
We ordered a plethora of items and loved almost everything, from the pakora to the aloo palak, biryani, tandoori fish, and of course the naan. The only part I wasn't blown away by was the dessert - again, a self-serve thing that you get from the fridge, and they have kheer or gulab jhamun, neither of which was the best I've tried. Other than that though, the meal was a total hit!
Though the service is minimal because of the setup, the staff is very friendly and willing to help with recommendations or just chat you up. I highly recommend this spot and hope to return!
