The samosa chaat here is yummmmmmy. Though the food is laid out in a buffet style layout, not really sure how long it is out, still very good.

Shadman is a great Pakistani restaurant, if your looking for no frills simple cheap dining. They have great flavored food which is not heavily spiced so really good for mild-medium palate. They have a daily week day buffet which is nice to sample the different dishes they offer. Definitely a good find, only downside is parking in the area is... More

The keema naan is the best thing in my opinion. Also the seekh kababs are so delicious. I've been here ever since I was born lol. My stomach is so happy for all those years.

So I love Indian food (if you know me, you know I just love FOOD). And Shadman has easily been one of my favorites for over ten years. I was first introduced to Indian/Pakistani food at this restaurant while I still in high school and the very first item I tasted was a samosa chaat. The delicious salad with fresh... More

Everything else is just not fresh. Whenever I order Tandoori Chicken or any kind of Saalan it's just thrown in the Microwave until it's hot. How about made to order like every other desi restaurant? It's the go to Desi spot in Jersey City but as a Pakistani who ate Desi food in Houston, New York City, Jersey City,UK, Dubai,... More
