    Butter chicken and garlic naan is a gem here. Can't go wrong with their mango lasse either

    Worst Indian food. Slow service, meat is not cooked well. And, we had to leave our Lamb half way as it was very hard.

    Super good North Indian food. Split the Maharaja or Maharani feast with a friend and get the crispy bhindi on the side. The fish tikka and roganjosh are particularly delicious

    Don't pass on the garlic naan to help sop up all the saucy goodness! You may also need more than one order of naan.

    It's kind of self-serve here but it's really good. Spicy Samosa, naan, and lamb tikka and korma are really spectacular

    Awesome Nehari and goat curry. One of the best meals I've had in a while! The curries are really well integrated and feel like they've been cooked with the meat and not added in later. Good stuff!

    Best Indian we've had in the city thus far however 30 min wait for food was long at dinner time. Order ahead with the app on your way over as they get backed up by the takeout orders!

    Lahore is the best Indian food in SF. My go to's; naan, tandoori fish, chicken tikka masala & saag paneer. Fyi, don't wear your favorite clothes here. An SF hole in the wall treasure.
