I love Naan-N-Curry! It is authentic, cheap, fast and delicious Indian/Pakistani food. It's great to bring a few friends and share some dishes. Naan-N-Curry has a spicy flare to most dishes so if you have a bland palette this might not be the place for you. It is also a great place for vegetarians to go because they have a wide selection of yummy veggie and lentil dishes. I recommend the Aloo Golbi or the Paleek Paneer! For meat eaters the Tandoori chicken is very tasty. If they are offering the specials try the vegetable samosas with some cilantro sauce, they are wonderful. I would say wait to use the bathroom until you get home, it's a little dirty. If you can make it to the buffet that is the best bet to try a little of everything! I love Indian and Pakistani food and this is the best meal you can get for cheap.

Pros: Great authentic food for cheap

Cons: bathroom and silverware

I'd go everyday if i could!! I just find myself craving this place! $9.99 for a buffet which is always freshly served because it gets eaten so fast! Bring your own wine and beers, Ive never been charged cockage! A wide selection for both herbivors and carnivors.Fantastic aromas, friendly efficient service, nice deco.. not fancy just interesting, i love this spot. The Kitchen is visible to the customers from the right spot (in the buffet line) and it looks nice and clean.. see for yourself.

There are only two cons:

1: Knives and forks are not always washed well.. be selective.
2: Bathrooms are terrible (may be due to the fact they are shared with the parking lot next door and so are open to public)

there are also two solutions:
1: use the disposable forks provided
2: use the restrooms across the road at the Hilton hotel (through the lobby ad to the left)

sorted.

Pros: excellent food, excellent value, BYO drinks no corkage fee, proximity to Hilton bathrooms!

Cons: dirty bathroom, cutlery not always washed well

Food is cheap yes, doesn't taste bad, but it is very unsanitary, there were flies all over the food when I was there for lunch. Plus, I had food ___________ from eating there (worst stomachache ever!) and haven't eaten there since. There is a blank because apparently the word is "inappropriate" to Citysearch, even though it is the truth that I got sick from the food. (the Naan and Curry I went to is on Irving St.)

Pros: Cheap prices

Cons: Unsanitary! Flies in restaurant land on food

I cannot even begin to describe how good their Chicken Tikka Masala and Garlic Naan is!!! I've never tried anything else to be honest. I live in Fremont so on the rare opportunities I have to catch a bite here, I always order the Masala. This place is knid of a do it yourself place. You order, select a table, and grab your plates, silverware and drinks. This is perfectly fine with me because this place is always so crowded, it allows the workers to focus on preparing their delicious food. I love the decor however, the ventilation is poor in the kitchen so it can get quite smokey in the restaurant. They usually have fans blowing to help with the ventilation, but I think this is a small price to pay for the food. Parking can be difficult at this location. I would suggest using a nearby parking garage.

First, Gyrl240's review is very misleading. The food is not bland--compared to authentic Northern Indian food, this food is crazy spicy. Gyrl240 ordered lamb tikka masala (not on the regular menu) Anything tikka masala is the mildest thing they have. Now, what's superb:
Naan - dinner plate sized--as Gyrl240 says, the naan is typically crispy in some places, doughy in other places. The naan is an incredible bargain at 1 dollar!
Chicken tikka masala - breast cooked in the tandoor and smothered in a tomato cream sauce--mild and out of this world with a fresh naan
Chicken leg tandoori - bursting with flavor, tender and moist, the best tandoori ever!
Bhindi - fantastic, completely non-slimy okra with garlic, onion, tomatoes and tons of spices
Bengan Bharta - eggplant roasted in the tandoor, to give it a smoky flavor, and purreed--wonderful with the naan.
Mango Lassi - again, Gyrl240 is very ungenerous, this is an excellent mango lassi
Recommended: chicken biryani, prawn biryani, fish tandoori, mixed vegetable tikka masala, mixed vegetables, karahi chicken, achar chicken and more...
Not recommended: samosas (not fresh, fillings aren't that great either), other types of naan (stick with the plain ones)
Service model: extremely innovative--you order and pay for the food at the counter, and a runner brings it to you. You get your own plates, silverware, to go containers, sodas. This allows the restaurant to efficiently server up to 200 people at a time with hardly any wait. The first cup of milk tea is free and they have a free salad bar so you don't have to starve during the short wait.
Price: the food is inexpensive enough to enjoy without emptying your wallet.
Ambience: Out of an industrial cavernous space the owners have created a unique atmosphere with a hilarious range of Pakistani music to enjoy. You never feel hurried and can hang out as long as you like.
Cons: A minor complaint is a lack of ventilation, it can get smoky in there during the rush.

Wow, I saw a review for another Naan N' Curry and thought I would try this location! What a mistake! I wanted to get takeout from this place since I was in the area. The gentleman at the front was quite pleasant. (The only plus.) I'd ordered a lamb tikka masala, naan and a mango lassi. First of all, the lamb was served in a small pint sized container with half of it small slabs of lamb and the other half just slabs of NOTHING BUT BONE. No meat on these slabs whatsoever!!!! None. I was appalled! It wasn't just a few pieces either and comprised half of the meal. The sauce was a bit bland and I ended up tossing most of the meal.

The naan was overcooked. Naan is not supposed to be burnt and semi-brittle! Really disappointed. And lastly, the mango lassi was a bit off. Not really sweet...Nevertheless, it was the only part of the meal that was almost right.
