|★★★★ Great food and service. Mild and tasty dishes|
|★★★★★ Really good restaurant.. clearly marked HALAL in front..most of the dishes are under $10.... i tried nihari with NAAN. It was not great but not bad either... NAANs were awesome... Tea was good too. |
People complaining about sitting space should consider price they are paying for dishes as well..
Really nice and polite staff .. serving time was fairly quick even though it was a bit busy..
|★★★★★ This is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to for Pakistani food! Not only are the meals delicious (highly recommend the beef nihaari w/garlic naan!), but their service was extraordinary. The staff goes out of their way to take care of you and everyone is always so friendly. My friend and I ate here while passing through Vancouver and loved it so much that we went back the next day for lunch. I highly recommend this place. |
|★ Our first visit to Vancouver driving from Seattle and we followed Zabihah.com's reviews to find a good desi place for lunch. We ordered chicken biryani (the waitress insisted we order this because no other biryani was ready), the mixed grill platter and haleem. Unfortunately none of the dishes were half decent, though I must add the biryani was the worst. Not sure how the place has so many positive reviews. However Pakistani mangoes from a nearby grocery store more than made up for the trip :-).|
|★★★★★ A very good restaurant for Indian/Pakistani cuisine. Their goat biryani especially is amazing! The food is a little on the spicier side so if you can't handle that, be sure to let them know!|
|★★★★★ Fast service and good food. Will definitely visit again. |
|★★★★★ Sublime. If you just do not want to be bothered cooking at home, you know you will get great home-cooked taste here. And at relatively reasonable prices. The staff are fun and friendly, and very accommodating. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but that's really not the reason you want to go here anyways. Its the food. Have I mentioned how subliminally yummy it is? The naan, oh the NAAN. |
|★★★ Basing my review strictly on the food and not the ambiance since it is typical of other desi restaurants in that it is lacking. staff was friendly and service was extremely quick. ordered nihari, seekh kabab, and chicken tikka pieces. it seems i came on the wrong day because it was "biryani day" and so the nihari did not taste fresh. looked like they popped a serving of nihari in the microwave and brought it to the table. seekh kabab was okay and the same goes for the chicken tikka. portions were small in comparison to other similar desi eateries. the only thing i did like was the naan. i would only recommend this place if you're planning on eating their special of the day because there is no guarantee if you order from the menu that it will be fresh (except perhaps the grill items)|
|★★★★★ I miss this rest|
they have amaizing LAMB KARAHY
now i am in Ottawa and i hope to visit Vancouver to visit this rest again
|★★★★ We ordered lamb korma with garlic naan which was good and a dish that had tandoori chicken, chicken tikka and kabobs which was extremely delicious. We liked how the owner served us quickly and how the place had an Islamic feel to it. We were also satisfied that the food wasn't too heavy unlike many other Indian/Pakistani places.|
|★★★★ food was excellent but they should improve the sitting area thats narrrow and congested.|
|★★★★ Food is excellent and fast, service is good. Butter chicken they gave me was either the wrong dish or not at all what I expect (not creamy at all) but the food was good regardless.|
|★★★★ their chiken tikkah is really good and appears the bring your food out on a steaming platter right out of the oven...the restaurant itself is pretty small and has a desi/maulvi/tableegi feel to it but seems to be popular and can't complain about the taste..|
|★★★★★ food is okay, not the best, and is very costly, their BBQ menu is probably worth the price... |
|★★★ food was ok, not very tasty, the guy at the counter messed up our order, we wanted meat but he gave us veggie instead, so he did redo our order, but food wasnt that great. There isnt much of interior design in this place.|
|★★★★ Food is good and acceptable,specially Lunch plate is faboulus and economical.Service is nice too,|
|★★★★ If you are craving for good Pakistani food (not Indian) then it is a place to go. Good lunch specials with decent quantity and prices. Food taste is very good. Parking is not easy to find in the area .... Also, the place is closed on Monday ... |
|★★★★ We tried Nihari and Chicken karhai there. Karhai was ok but Nihari was excellent. Defintely recommend for someone who is looking for good Nihari place in Vancouver|
|★★ The food was ok but poor service. I went once, don't think i'll go again.|
|★★★★ Good food and service. Chicken Karahi was interesting and different. We enjoyed it and got to have tea at the end. |
|★★★★ Good Food.|
|★★★ If you've ever had really good quality Pakistani cuisine,like in London, Birmingham, Manchester and other UK parts, then this didn't even come a close second or even third. If you are accustomed to your typical Indian/Pakistani restaurant as usually found everywhere, then at least this guy tries to be authentic.|
Nothing to really write about, except that everything is pretty typical for this type of joint. Proprietor is a nice chap - but you might have to struggle if Urdu - Panjabi is not your first language.
I trust the guy enough to take his word it is halal. It is a pity the Fraser Street masjid has closed down, it was handy being just a couple of doors away.
The restaurant, despite being non-special does attract a good crowd, so is often full when a big party arrives - which isn't that difficult, as there are only a few tables. In those circumstances, it wouldn't in my opinion justify a long wait just to be seated.
Although I truly wish this restaurant the best of luck and good prosperity - if there ever was any real competition in the marketplace- it would never survive ( in its current format).
Vancouver, really needs good quality halal establishments. The vast majority close down soon after opening - there is no support from the muslim community, but i think things are changing, I sense we are going to see more good resaturants come on stream soon. We will then really be able to distinguish between those that are excellent, and those that are just chasing the halal dollar.
|★★★★★ Very good restaurant. Great food and reasonable prices. Meals are served on sizzling platters which makes the meal all the better.|
|★★★★★ Mashallah this was an amazing place to eat out while staying in Vancouver. A small place but very friendly service. I highly recommend the butter chicken, garlic naans, and butter naans...very tasty.|
|★★★ Food was good but owner have a typical attitude sometime. Also they have non-muslim staff in the kitchen.|
|★★★★★ Food is good , real authentic Pakistani food . Price is reasonable too.|
Staff is friendly . I think the best place in Vancouver to have a Pakistani food.
|★★★★★ Great food, very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.|
|★★ the food was very good. I'll admit that. But as for the service, a LOT of room for improvement. Even though the sign on the window says it closes at 9:30pm, they will stop serving you at 9pm (then shouldn't they change the window sign?). One day, we even went in at 8:30 and was told that they were full and I should have come at 7pm. Did not even offer take-out. Very rude and unfriendly service.|
|★★★★ Good food in general. Env is so so. Kababs, Nihari and Biryani is awesome! Rest is kool enough. |
|★★★ the paya is superb, but the biryani needs serious improvement...don't get it because its not worth it. people are nice and setting is ok. bathroom is very clean. |
|★★★★ Excellent restaurant! People who woud like to have authentic Pakistani food need to look no further. Haleem, Brain Masala, Paya and Especially Nihari are the best.|
|★★★★★ This is the BEST restaurant for Pakistani food. I took me back home the minute I tasted the food. The management is amazing! They did a great job for my take out order and also another time when I brought first time pakistani food eaters...EVERYONE was just in LOVE with their food. Keep up the good work!:)|
|★★★★★ Excellenet food! Try these dishes for sure:Brain Masala, Nahari and Paya. |
|★★★★★ Their food is good ..I like it|
|★★★★★ 2 thumbs up! They serve one of best East-Indian cusines out side India. I have been to several places in Vancouver and at other cities but this one has no match. Watch out for levels of HOTNESS!|
|★★★★ "Certainly tries his best but plenty of scope fro improvemet, especially in presentation and decor and style. Otherwise food is good, more homely variety, rather then restauarnt stle"|
|★★★★★ "An excellent halal restaurant with a variety of Pakistani and Indian cusine. Service is prompt and courtious. Rates are very reasonable. We tried ""Chicken Karahi"" and ""Nihari"". Both were excellent in taste. Recommend to your family and friends."|
|★★★★ "Serve halal Pakistani & Indian cuisine. Great place to go, have plenty of place of sit. Have a great lunch special. Open 7 days a week until 10pm. "|
