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. Vegetarian? They will accommodate you. The price is right and the food impeccably prepared and served in authentic style with little bowls on a tray.

The place smacks of Japanese takeaway joint ..small but serves good typical Indian food prepared in ample oil .The nan bread is quite big and heavy more like Pakistani bread than Indian .
Food is tasty .

Tiny place on street near university. Fast service, nice fellows. Food pretty good. Largest nan I've ever had!

If you need a quick Indian fix, go here.

This is my second visit to Potohar in Tokyo, wanted to check that the quality of the food was as good as I remembered. It was.
Great chicken curry and the garlic naan was still an absolute winner.
Great great value in Tokyo, two of us had two main courses, two garlic naans, shared a rice, two beers each and a number of popadoms, all for just over ¥5,000, superb value.
It's a bit off the beaten track but I'll be back again for sure.
