Last summer we tried and food quality was good but today not so good. Not really worth to pay that much for ok kind of food. They need to improve their quality. On the plus side,they do offer many dishes.

The Indian food here was not amazing but I will give another try. The food did not feel cooked enough but this looked the type of place where they can do better. Good variety but not amazing.

There folks offer a huge buffet on Saturday and Sunday. We really liked all the dishes and thought some of them, like the Tandori Chicken, were the best tasting we've had in the area. The place was mobbed, we had to wait about 30 mins for a table on a Sat afternoon. But the service was good, free, unlimited soda... More

The buffet is around $18 each and includes soft drinks with refills. They also brought me a small mango lasse which was ok. Not great but pretty good. There are a couple of soups at... More

We found Shahnawaz through a Groupon offer. It is located in a residential area and we would not have found it without our GPS, It is a large, busy banquet hall that offers a lunch buffet on Saturday and Sunday. We arrived at about 1 o'clock and were glad that we had made a reservation since it was extremely busy.... More

Pakistan / North Indian type cooking. If you are looking for spicy food then this not the place for you. Opens only for... More

Good quality food option. Space is so tied ... Need a reservation and place get very crowded after noon. Better to get there around 1130 am. Little on expensive side. Pakistani + Indian food. Not so spicy.

You will find almost all Indian paki famous dishs at this place in 17 bucks. Food was fresh and good but dont expect service the setup look like you are paying for eating in a marriage hall. We made reservation in advance but they told us to wait. If you miss indo-pak dishes this place is a good choice .

There was a wide spread of Pakistani dishes well cooked and tasty. We were given a complimentary Faluda because our friend knew the owner, The kababs were very good .There were many meat dishes and chutneys. A little on the steep side but that was ok because we enjoyed ourselves.
