My kids dragged me to this place because I didn't want to eat Pakistani food. Wow really nice flavors, I can't wait to go back.

It is an awesome place. Me and my friend have tried out all the other restaurants close to this place, but nothing is worth the taste that we found at Lahore Karahi. Most of the Indian/Pakistani restaurants have a little bland food.

Pros: Awesome food, Reasonable Price

Cons: Long wait

It is casual beyond most places, so make yourself at home, get a glass of water or chai. A couple of nice young guys are doing a much better job of serving. They will get to you and you will get your dinner. Relax. But that isn't why we

The service is SLOW, and there tends to be a wait for a table if you go during the dinner rush. But the food is amazing, just like the price. This is a great place to go if you are with someone you can hold a nice LONG conversation with.

This place has really delicious food. I got the Karahi Chicken and it was not only adequately spicy, but really flavorful and satisfying. The naan is delicious as well.

I can't say much for the ambiance, service, or speed of food, but I can say it's made up for in taste and cheapness.

The owner is pretty much the only cook.

This place is totally worth it if you have the time.

Note: the water is nasty tap water, so beware.

We went to this small restaurant and the service is so slow...there are only three people doing the order in this restaurant = the chef which is the owner, another guy who do the dishes or help the cook and one waiter who doesnt speak english. It took around 30 minutes for one dish to be ready.The price is also expensive and the service is bad. I wouldnt recommend this place.

Pros: Well, everything. You have to go and find out.

Cons: Patience, not meant if you're on lunch break

.

Curries, daal & naan at this place were superb - 'medium' was just the right amount of spicyness and the portions were huge and cheap. We will definitely make this place a regular spot.

I found heaven when I found Lahore Karahi. It is just a couple of blocks from my house so I found myself irresisably draw...often. Amazing that the chef makes everything as you wait, from the naan to the prawn tikka masala. I noticing that

Pros: best food, service and very friendly

Cons: borderline bad neighborhood, but still well worth the trip

First time I went inside it didnt seem like the place I would be regularly going to. Ever since that day, I have gone there repeatedly and have taken my collegues, boss and my clients, they have all loved this place. I believe Lahore

Pros: Great Food, Friendly Staff

Cons: SLOW Kitchen, Poorly Trained Service Staff, Mistake$ With Bill

The other reviewers to date are pretentious food snobs. Having lived in Pakistan for 4 years, and having eaten at all manner of SF Pakistani and Indian restaurants, I can say Lahore gets it right.

These other reviewers probably want the Olive Garden version, go figure.

PROS: Hot and spicy, nothing for wimps
CONS: Slow service, but the owner makes everythin

I went there with friends while shopping at o'farell. I guess we went with great expectations that we would like the food, But Trust me none would like the food. The place was dirty with almost no customers (is that because the food was greasy and tasteless) Didnot like the place at all and would not receommend the place at all.

PROS: None
CONS: Greasy tasteless food.

I went here recently because I read the reviews on Yelp!
This is a little hole in the wall located on O'farrell street.
We had the prawn tikka masala and CTM (aka chicken tikka masala).

Pros: Uses really fresh ingredients, good naan

Cons: For not so stellar food the prices are higher compared to other indian restaurants.
The CTM had slightly undercooked chicken. Most places Ive had this dish, use tandoori chicken. It was slightly rubbery and cold.
The service is super slow. The waiter was completely clueless and seemed like he was scolding us instead of asking us what we thought of our food.

The prices aren't that competitive with neighboring restaurants and therefore, I'd skip this place especially if this is your first experience with indian food.

hands down the best food from the Indian Sub-Continent I have eaten in the US.
Try the Tandoori Fish and the Lamb Saag and you will not be disapointed.

Best Indian Food I have ever eaten. If you go order the Tandoori Fish for starters and the Goat Curry for your main. Also the Chef/ Owner is a great guy. If you dont know what to order just ask him and you won't be disappointed

Let me preface this by saying I am a true Indian food snob. People that go to Naan and Curry and Shalimar don't know what the heck they are missing. When the owner was sick I tried some other Tandooriloin hotspots and was sorely
