I tried this place after reading it one of these magazines- New York Mag or Time Out. It was an article on a date under $50. I guess I shouldn't have expected much just from that. This place offers the care minimum. It's pre-made food with made to order bread. It wasn't bad food, it was actually tasty, thought no warm. You would think they could at least keep the food warm. I just didn't feel very good after eating my meal, and I didn't even finish all of it. When you go, its like 6 choices- meat with veggies, veggies with veggies, etc. I got the one of the chicken with 2 sides (mixed vegetables and cauliflower_. The chicken was overcooked, but I am very particular about overcooked chicken. The food just wasn't anything to write home about, but the nan was a different story. It was so good, I would make a trip to this place just for the nan. This place probably is prettyg ood for take out- its cheap ($7 or less for a meal), but dont' make plans to sit. I went during lunch and it was packed. The space is small, and there's very little seating, so beware.

Pros: nan

Cons: cramped, heavy food

This is a great place for the budget conscious and fans of no-frills food from the subcontinent. Don't let the stark decor and slightly surly service turn you away - this place is a total gem.

As an appetizer, I recommend the lamb sausage or the naan bread. The naan is made on-demand, fresh from the brick oven.

For the main, I usually have the three vegetable combo - it's an appealing $4.50, and is perfectly aromatic and quite filling. The chicken tandoori is good, too, but I'm always a tad suspicious of meat at these low, low prices.

This place rules. Owner Shakeel "Shak Diesel" Kazmi slings daal like your momses does- that is, if she learned how to cook while kicking it in Karachi. The vegetables outplay the meats- nothing can stop the three-dish Vegetable Combo from putting up a triple-double. And at $4.50, the Combo will never create salary cap concerns.

Don't forget to pick up some seductive ras malai before you leave.

The House maintains a minimalist decor, but who cares? Go for the food, not the environ. If you need ambience, go pay more for far lesser quality food at Baluchis.
