We were visiting our son who's in the Navy and our first meal when we arrived in Japan was here at Potohar. We had never had Indian food before but our son spoke highly of the owner, chefs and the food. Everything was delicious. We...More

We came here for a curry after a long night drinking in the Park Hyatt. Had some of the best curries of our lives! Very friendly service and good prices too. Highly recommended.

This place is extraordinary. Seats about ten people and everything happens in front of you by a solitary (Pakistani) chef. The food is delicious especially the naan and is halal if that is important to you. Worth seeking out just for the experience.

It is a tiny hole in the wall diner on a busy street with counter seating for only about 10 diners. The two cooks whip up everything inches from your nose, including baking the naan right in the tandoori oven, as fresh as can be....More

Potohar is small even by Japaneses standards and it can be hard to fit the giant naan bread into the small space alloted for dining in. It's worth the effort however. I found this place by following the delicious aromas and it became a firm...More

Found this very small place while walking in search of Indian food. I say very small as it can accommodate max about eight diners at a time seating in high chair circling the food preparation area. An unique experience of watching the cook/chef in action...More

The best curry I had in Tokyo. Not only that, some of the best/freshest curry I've ever had, and I've tried many. You really can't even get anything close to that in London, and the UK claims they have the best curries outside of India...More
