    This unassuming stall is a hotspot for a full-fledged naan and meat feast that barely makes a dent in your wallet. Thanks to the open kitchen, you can smell the delicious aroma while waiting to be served. What sets them apart is Chapli Kebab, which looks like a burger patty, but it’s a Pakistani-style kebab chockfull with beef meat, green chillies, diced onions and fresh herbs. Expertly charred on the outside with a bouncy center, you just can’t stop scoffing down the naans, particularly the cheese laden one. Another reason to keep you coming is their Kheemah, thick gravy with minced beef and subtle spices. 

    Tips

    Not a naan person? Opt for their chapatis
