Came to eat, was a little late (had just closed), but they let us in! The food is very very good and plentiful. The waiter (owner) was especially attentive and gave us freshly made biryani and naan. The entire meal was delicious and it was a real pleasure eating here. Give it a try and you'll not be disappointed in the least bit.

We had a one night stop in Oakland, and were craving some authentic Indian/Pakistani food - and we were not disappointed!
Although we were a little put off by the lack of diners (but it was close to 9pm), I'm so glad we went in.
We didn't get to experience the buffet at that time, but every dish we ordered was absolutely spot on. Beautifully spiced, lots of flavour, and very generous portions. The naans were freshly made, soft and fluffy.
There was a slight lack in keeping us topped up - we had to catch their attention to ask for things, even though there was only one other table taken.
But having said that, it wasn't enough to spoil our experience.
This is a must visit place if you prefer the quality of the food over fancy decor etc.

We went for an early dinner on a weekday. We were the only ones there. The food—dal, vegetable curry, samosas, naan, spinach and potatoes—was pretty average. But the strange thing was that they seemed uninterested in having customers. We had to get up and go to the buffet to get serving utensils. We ordered rice for the kids, and it didn't show up until after the main courses, and after we reminded them of it. No one refilled our water glasses. At one point the phone rang for a few minutes and no one answered it.

It could be that they do most of their business at lunch, since it's in a commercial district. And it might be fine for take out.

Oh this is a delicious fresh buffet. Best lunch in Oakland. Hopefully the prices don't keep going up though.

The chai.....heaven. Not too sweet.

What a lovely surprise! Authenic Pakastani food in the heart of Oakland....And the owners make you feel like you are family. This was my favorite meal of my whole trip. Try it.
