I've tried Pakwaan for the past several months and the quality has deteriorated significantly. Here are some problems with this place:
** Be prepared for inconsistent service and at times, rude waitstaff.
** Be also prepared for bad quality dinner at exorbitant prices. If the food tasted good, I would pay for it happily. But their quality has gone down since they opened several months ago.
** They also seem to think Americans don't get authentic tasting food and have started to undercook and oversweeten most things.
** I don't understand why they have to add some much oil to many of their dishes - that feels like going to a really low-quality place and not what Pakwan touts itself to be.
** I also don't get why their full menu is never served and it's been 9 months or so since they opened. AT least do your customers the courtesy of putting the current, short menu online. Don't fool them with the wrong menu online.
In summary, everything about this place is inconsistent. But the saddest part is the food - over-greasy, too undercooked or sweet where it shouldn't be (such as the chana masala) and non-Indian (veggie jalfrazie does not equal steamed veggies) when it comes to many dishes is a complete letdown!!
