This place rules. The owner Amjad Iqbal  slings daal like your momses does- that is, if she learned how to cook while kicking it in Gujrat (famous pakistani city) .The vegetables outplay the meats- nothing can stop the three-dish Vegetable Combo from putting up a triple-double.

Best place for Pakistani food near BMCC, We loved it and still like it. I will appreciate if they improve their serving style; their serving style is like getting food in prism /:). As far as taste concern, food is tasty and fresh. I never mind going there just to have taste of my old school days.

zabardast- its good to have places wheer our own food is sold... reminds of home.. thanks so much.. qulaity and cleanliness is remarkable!! Non- Pakistanis or people from all other faiths and nationalities, ethnic groups are welcome alike... great.

Definately good food w/a good price. A great place to eat if u work in that area. Also a good place to stop by if u r in that area. Meals start at $5.

Good food. I just cant stand the new lady behind the counter. Me and friends regular patrons.

"Food is very good and moneys worth , may be more than that but not less. Any time of the day .. a great place to eat"

"This small restaurant is a busy place 24-7. Lunch times are always busy, because of college students and cabbies. If you can get a seat, you are in for a treat. Even though they lack a menu due to their buffet style serving, they always have a wide variety of food. This restaurant have vegetable and non vegetable platters, which are a bargain at for the money. Since they are a normal restaurant, they have more food then just the platters. Downtown location make this place ideal for late night takeout or a quick bite to eat. This place not so clean due to high foot traffic but the food makes up for the decorations."

"The most delicious Pakistani food in that area. Tremendous value for money. Heavily crowded during the lunch-time hours, lines extend to the pavement. Open 24 hours of the day."

Holy Makahni Combo

This place has many a time sent me happily to the seventh floor post lunch. Be sure to ask for the chana masala, because it is hidden below all of the other popular trays (they hide the good stuff for the regulars).

Best chicken makhani in New York

This food is phenomenally good, and very cheap. For $6, you can get a heaping mound of chicken makhani and two vegetable curries over basmati rice. For $5, you can get the vegetarian equivalent with 3 vegetable curries. Not only are the portions very filling, but the flavor is incredible. Fresh naan is baked on the premises, and that is also delicious. Pitchers of cold water are available with your food, and the staff is very friendly as well. There is not much seating room, but this place is one of my favorite places to eat in all of Manhattan.

Good Food,

While the tikkas and breads are better than average at this downtown's Cabbie delight, the delivery service is simply horrid. If you want a unique Indian diningexperience, drop by their restaurant for a plate of freshly prepared meals. For delivery, let me save you a phone call and tell you what they would tell you, "sorry, no delivery today."
