    GN Devon: really the best biryani I've had in ages last night, with achar and raita on the side, a very cold lassi, and an ideally scorched made-to-order naan. The biryani was the mix - chicken and lamb, in little succulent knots within the fragrant al dente basmati. As previous posts will indicate I have bad luck hitting the right "on" hour (or day / prep cycle), but at its peak this is as strong as it gets, and still for a pittance.

    Agreed. It's probably the least consistent dish at one of the least consistent restaurants, but when it's "on" it is one of the best around.

    After years of "I really gotta get there," finally hitting up the Ghareeb Nawaz tomorrow night and I'm hoping for some guidance to avoid the land mines on the menu. From the looks of the thread, the essentials are chili chicken, parathas, palak gosht, and some sort of biryani. Is there any other required dish on the first go? What are the things to avoid at all costs (got it on the gyros tip)? How many dishes would be a hefty meal for four?

    Thanks in advance!

    For the prices, not too many landmines. Consistency CAN BE an issue among all of their dishes, but for the price, don't be worried too much about trying anything. I would order one naan at first, and then order more if you like them. If you're doing takeout, sure, order a few naans, but keep in mind, that their other breads are usually MUCH better. I do not order naan from there any more. I wouldn't order the gyros, either.

    Once you understand that some of the stuff is gonna be great, and some of it is not, but all of it will be DIRT CHEAP, you'll probably learn to love GN.

    As for heftiness? If you do NOT want leftovers...Damn. Tough Question!
    I always just order anything that strikes my fancy to try, sorry.
    For four ppl with appetites...

    One meat biryani...maybe two if you want lots of rice.
    Two veggie dishes
    One pulse dish - probably chana masala
    Two meat (gravy) dishes (don't be surprised if these are not overflowing with meat for the price)
    Chili Chicken
    Four paratha and one naan (more naan if you try theirs and like them)
    We cannot be friends if you do not know the difference between Mayo and Miracle Whip.

    I'm up and down with Ghareeb Nawaz, decades of patronage have yielded stretches of obsession and years of neglect. Currently on an up phase, three tasty meals in the last month.

    For those who have not been in a while, G N is brighter, cleaner, more comfortable (in relative terms) and there seems consistency /care in whats on the plate. Prices remain absurdly low.

    Remember that even on its worst day, Ghareeb Nawaz is still 2/3 of a GNR. :)

    I've been on, as Trixi-Pea called it on my Instagram feed, Ghareeb* streak!

    5-times in as many weeks, counting a few recent tip-top meals at Pakeeza, I'm definitely on an IndoPak streak.

    Glad to hear that they have updated the place without raising prices. One of our favorite spots but the decor was a turn off for our kids.
