Wow! Just found my new place for Pakistani/Indian food.
Flavours are bold and created with care. They make it clear that they make food to order and so it's not the quickest of service but boy is it worth the wait.
I'd give food, service and value all 5's except for some minor details. The food is fantastic, their dishes are not as heavy or greasy as many Indian dishes can be. The flavours are in no way shy or 'toned down'. Perhaps a touch too much salt but other than that it is obvious that they tend to each meal and each dish with care and pride.
The service was extremely pleasant and caring. It was a tad on the slow side but he took care of everything. They had a mishap in the kitchen and so, without hesitation turning what could have been a negative into a happy positive.
You are not going for the decor or ambiance. You are going for the food. Remember that and you'll be happy with the result.

What can I say - everything about this place is OK but that's it. Clean, relatively quick service, good selection, hit or miss with individual dishes.
There's that ambience of trying to be rich and impress. Whatever.
I would go again except that the owner has an attitude that is hard to ignore.
Hole in the Wall Delivers!

The decor could use an upgrade and the rear entrance (where most of us come in) doesn't give one much confidence let alone an appetite.
But the owners are great. And the food is great.
By far the best spring rolls in the lower mainland. Their pho is very good and their rice dishes are generous and good. We've been coming here for nearly 15 years!
