It appears to be a relatively authentic Muslim Indian restaurant. There are no kitschy decorations, no self-service steam table food but nothing fancy. You eat, not dine. Order at the counter and they (all men when we have been there) bring you the food with...More

Decent Indian/Pakistani food. Service is prompt. Quality of food is variable-good to average. They are a part of a private chain. One in San Francisco has the best quality. In Sacramento area, this is probably the best. Price is reasonable, informal seating, self-serve.
