I just stopped by here tonight for samosas and boy they were great. I was a little upset that they didn't pack me some dipping sauce, but they were well spiced as they were. I was quite happy after eating them. They made them fresh in the back. One veg and one meat. They got steam tables in the front and the food looked good. I saw a guy making bread from a tandor oven in the back. Pretty large piece of bread. The food looks really good and this place is 24 hours. Things are priced $10 and less. Kulfi, lamb brains.....Definitely, will do this place for dinner and samosas are much better than late night Kebab King. Anyone eaten here?

    I've been three times. The first two times were great, the last time, not so. The bread is fresh and fantastic, but from the steam table, the last time I got the butter chicken and it was pretty bad. I really enjoyed it the first two times so I haven't given up hope. Been meaning to try the place accross the street that's been written up here as well.

      What did you eat? Is the place across the street 24 hours?

        I think it is.

        At Phalwan I had the butter chicken 3 times...the first 2 it was great, the third time I got very little chicken, and the chicken I did get was stringy, tough and dry. Maybe it was just a bad batch.
