I'm not even sure how I ran into this place. I think I was driving down Shiloh and caught a glimpse in the corner of my even and looked it up on Google. I was quite surprised to see another Indian food place turn up in Tyler. They are new, as far as I know and located off Shiloh just west of 110 (Troup highway). They are located on the corner of a non-nondescript strip mall. The interior is sparsely decorated with a small dining room. You can also order online.
The spread: The menu is interesting. My impression was that the owner wanted the menu to reflect his nostalgia for barbeque back in Pakistan. They focus on grilled items to include seekh kabobs (beef and chicken), various forms of grilled chicken (green chicken, maili boti), bihari kabob, as well as fried fish and falafel. They also offer some of the grilled items in a sandwich/wrap form. They also offer three forms of 'curries' in the chicken karahi, a couple of salads and naan of various kinds.
The verdict: Wow, I was blown away with the skill in preparation and execution of their dishes. The grilled items I have tried were deliciously spiced, expertly grilled and just plain good eatin. The chicken karahi was also very good, well seasoned and balanced in heat. The naan was also fresh and had that great balance of fluffy and crispy. I also have to say that the prices are quite reasonable. This isn't just a good Indian/Pakistani place for Tyler, this is a very good restaurant.
Edible Tyler Roses: 5 out of 5, I highly recommend to give this place a try for some authentic and cheap Indian/Pakistani grub.
