Went here for the first time yesterday evening after a recommendation from a friend. I had a great experience. The staff pay a lot of attention to detail and the service was excellent. I ordered the mixed grill for starters and when asked if they could swap one of the items for the masala fish they said this was not possible however halfway into the meal they bought over masala fish and said it was ‘on the house’. This was a really kind gesture. I have lived in the area for several years and I can confidently say this is the best Pakistani restaurant in this locality!
P.s the Kashmiri chai and rasmalai cake is a must try

The potions were to small for what we paid and the quality of food. It was obvious they hadnt used fresh produce to cook their Palak Lamb for example and they had used the same base for their ginger chicken and chicken karahi.
Not worth it really so wont recommend it or go back again.

Portion sizes are very small for what they charge. Starters were ok but mains were very good especially the chicken karai.

Highly recommend this place - food is well seasoned and tasty. We had 3 starters and 2 mains (took some home) and you can tell these guys take care in preparing, marinating and cooking the food. Could not fault anything.

Didnt have to wait too long once we had given our order and the service was excellent and to cap it off they give you complimentary Karak chai.

We will definitely be back. One of the hidden gems in the Gants Hill area.

Everything was good but the service was slow due to low staff. The food was so good but the cocktails were different level to what I’ve had from central London, and I’m a central London boy.

Our server really made the night and gave really good service.
The portion sizes are very small and it is quite pricey so bear that in mind.
The lamb shank was amazing as well as the chicken sarji however again the portion sizes left a lot to be desired.
We had a loud group next to us which kind of killed the mood as well. Overall it was a pleasant visit but not sure if I would go again

Lovely small intimate restaurant in Gants Hill. Bit hard to find parking. But main concern was how slow the service was. Staff were all polite and courteous however one of my dishes was missed completely and took 40 mins to recieve the drinks.
The food was really tastey great portions too.
Would visit again but not on a Saturday eve.
