A lot of reviewers have pointed out the negatives - slow service and no ambience. However, if you want delicious Pakistani food, I'd advise you to look past the negatives and give the food a try. I always get the half Kadhai chicken which they...More

The service is below acceptable. The place is not clean. Absolutely rude cashier. Didn't want to give me a receipt. Food came after 20 mins and was cold. The cashier insulted Gulf Arabs. Avoid. ..Avoid...Avoid!!!

The place is a bit basic but the food is authentic Pakistani cuisine. I ate there at least twice on my visit to Philadelphia in 2013. They now deliver.

Foreign students go to this restaurant because of its reasonable price. The place is filthy & dirty. There are a few Paki restaurants and we thought of trying. Rotten food can easily hide under spice, but be prepared for after effect/sickness

Tasty Chicken Seekh, Boti kababs, nice breads and Chicken curry. Their kadai chicken and goat are also good. Place is not that great, an old diner, seating average. Food makes up for it though!

Excellent kebabs. The ambience isn't so good but the food is and that's what counts. We had the tandoori chicken, lamb kebab, biryani and lamb curry. Biryani was sub par, lamb curry was ok, kebabs were superb, roti and naan was average. We had kheer...More

We tried their chicken and mutton karahi- this was very delicious and authentic Pakistani karahi. You do have to wait for it because they make it fresh. I like it and often go there to enjoy home land taste.
