Nice little restaurant in barcelona. Friendly people. I had ordered Chana Masala and Naan. The food was supercool loved the spices, loved the staff. I had my best chana masala in my life. Even if there are political differences between our countries but as people we all want peace and live together. That's what I feel. #indo-pak

Small a bit hidden restaurant which offers good Pakistan food with a real good price. Tables are only inside and service is nice, not touristic.

Attentive and friendly service, food was fresh and tasty. We ordered a lot of food between the two of us and it came to around 20 euros, so I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We come here 3 or 4 times each year. Nice people, friendly service, decent food. Very good price for a relaxed lunch or dinner.

Not the cheapest but importantly not fresh. Taste was ok. Felt like food was prepared a while back and warmed up in miccrowave. We ordered mix grill.

I really love this place, the quality of the food is unbeatable and the prices too (especially for their vegetarian options which range between 4-5 euros a plate). The staff is friendly and funny, they always joke with us. On fridays and Saturdays it can be almost too crowded to eat there and it seems as if they are not... More

The food was dripping with oil and ghee. Palak paneer was so full of butter that we left the dish as-is after a few bites. Chicken, dal - all were dripping with oil. However the folks here are very friendly and nice and this is a very economical place too.

chicken tika masala and tandory chicken komar are their best dishes by far. Their sauces are very tasty and perfect to combine with the vegetables rice. Samosas as a starter is a must!

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
