Karahi Chicken

Chicken karahi, or kadai chicken, is a chicken dish from South Asia. It is noted for its spicy taste and is notable in Pakistani and North Indian cuisine. Karahi is named after the pan in which it was originally cooked – a heavy, often cast-iron pan that’s similar to a wok, but rounder with a flatter base. Traditionally, meat would be simmered and stir-fried in this karahi in an open fire.

Lamb Curry

Lamb Curry made in an hour with and easy homemade curry spice mix and creamy tomato sauce, simmered on low heat until fall apart tender.Lamb is an interesting protein here in the US. Outside the United States people enjoy lamb dishes far more often, but here it gets the reputation for being really gamey.For wild meat, like venison or lamb, you may notice a stronger meat taste. This is due to the difference in diet most wild animals have. Just as cows are fed a mostly corn diet, many wild animals eat different plants and foods which allow for the meat to have a much stronger flavor.

Chicken Biryani

Chicken Biryani is a savory chicken and rice dish that includes layers of chicken, rice, and aromatics that are steamed together. The bottom layer of rice absorbs all the chicken juices as it cooks, giving it a tender texture and rich flavor, while the top layer of rice turns out white and fluffy. Buried in the Biryani, you'll find whole cuts of succulent chicken bursting with flavor from the potent array of spices, herbs, and aromatics it's marinated in.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken tikka masala is composed of chicken tikka, boneless chunks of chicken marinated in spices and yogurt that are roasted in an oven, served in a creamy sauce.The sauce usually includes tomatoes (frequently as purée), cream or coconut cream and a masala spice mix. The sauce and chicken pieces may be coloured orange using foodstuffs such as turmeric, paprika, tomato purée or with food dye.

Bhindi Masala

A simple North Indian Bhindi Masala that is great on flavors, tastes delicious & is healthy. Bhindi Masala is a staple Indian dish made with okra, whole and ground spices, herbs, onions & tomatoes. This semi dry okra curry goes very well with rice or roti. It is mildly spicy, hot & full of flavors that comes from the pan fried bhindi and garam masala. This Okra Masala is wholesome, nutritious, vegan & gluten-free. ‘Bhindi’ is a Hindi term for ‘Okra’ & ‘Masala’ here is an Indian curry base made with onions, tomatoes, spices and herbs. So ‘Bhindi Masala’ means okra cooked in a spicy onion tomato masala.

Beef Nihari

Nihari gosht is seriously tasty beef stew Indian style. Beef in spicy gravy. Big bold Indian flavours. Seriously beefy. It’s a classic for a reason. Nihari dates back to the 18th century. And it’s still wildly popular in India and Pakistan. Tradition says it’s a beef curry. But you can make it with lamb. Or goat. I’ve even seen it done with chicken. I like it best with beef. Some will say it has to be beef. Beef shin. Beef on the bone.

This was a great find in SF! The menu was extensive, offering a wide variety of authentic Indian dishes that left me speechless. Staff were extremely knowledgeable and helped me navigate through the menu, suggesting dishes that I would enjoy based on my preferences. The food itself was filled with different flavors and cooked to perfection. I especially loved the butter chicken and the naan bread, which were mouthwatering. The service was great... everyone was smiling and kind, like we were at someone's house as guests. They checked in on us regularly to make sure everything was perfect. The atmosphere was lively and vibrant, with traditional Indian music adding to the overall experience. It was awesome and highly recommended :)

Cute little place in north beach serving tasty indian and pakistani food. You order at the counter and pay when you finish your meal. Lots of water and sauces available for free. We ordered the vegetable pakora, the lamb chops, sag and lentils. The pakora were filled with a mix of potatoes, cauliflower and onions. These were yummy!!! the lamb chops had so much flavor unfortunately they were over cooked. The sag and lentils were excellent!! Prices are so reasonable!!!!

SF parking is horrible as usual even at night. We came an hr before closing and the place was still decently packed. Food came out in about 20minutes and they close the kitchen 30min before closing. Dine in set up is done by yourself as water, utensils, cups, and napkins are set in the back. 10/10 Chicken Tikka Masala $12.49 - does not come with rice! Cheap price is a bit misleading. Still very good, lots of flavor, creamy, and good amount of chicken chunks. Asked for super spicy and it was still about a 6/10 for spicy level. 10/10 Lamb Briyani $13.99 - lamb was super tender! Fried rice was flavorful and definitely worth it! 8/10 Garlic Naan $2.49 - garlic flavor was lacking but the naan was nicely warmed up with a toasty outside and soft inside.

My boss, she is a vegetarian, and my co-worker and I were in SF late at night after landing and then working on an office move and network upgrade. We were hungry and my colleague and I, who are meat eaters, would have been happy with greasy pepperoni pizza, but we had to find a vegetarian alternative for our boss. This place more than fit the bill and it was so close to our hotel. It was upscale, welcoming, and cozy. The recommendations from our waitress were great, and our boss loved her falafel dish, and we loved our meat plates. I had the beef kabob with jasmine rice bowl and do not remember what my colleague had, but I remember at the time it looked delicious. When we travel back to SF this will be one of our go to places.

Food here is delicious, spicy, and flavorful. My friends were intrigued by the restaurant's delicious smell each time they passed by outside. Portions are big and prices are affordable. I would definitely return to try out the other items on the menu. Very affordable and it made us all full. The place is self-served, so you grab your own cutlery, food, and water. They place iced water and their paid drinks in the same fridge, so we were quite confused if we were allowed to grab the iced water. We ordered 4 items and it was a good portion to share for a party of 3.
