    Excellent meal. Everything had great flavor. I was surprised they didn't ask us how spicy we wanted our food but everything was fine in the end . A bit noisy.

    This is a gem. I have never had Pakistan food before. However, I want to try something different for my husband's birthday. It's my first time there, and I love this place - well decorated, delicious food, and superb service. Highly recommendable!

    Love this place normally but the service was not good very very slow. I know they were busy but it took way too long. Our waiter continued to make mistakes in our order and the bill overcharged us items we didn’t order. The food was very good as usual clean place but the prices seem to have gone up or seem way too high for the value

    What a great modern, fun take to desi cuisine. The food and the presentation was excellent. Great value for what you pay for. The staff was warm and attentive. If you're looking to host friends or family or even a date night, this is the place! The menu is friendly to those who are not aware of Indo-Pak cuisine. They also have a range of spice level which helps a lot.

The servers were very accommodating and suggesting different appetizer and entrée items. Overall, I had a great experience and will be returning here very soon

    While the service was not exactly lightning fast, the food was served thoughtfully with a sense of care from the kitchen. The nonalcoholic drinks are appreciated and the seasonings seemed quite appropriate. I will say that the ice creams are not made for sharing which was a slight disappointment. We enjoyed the pappadum and its raita, tamarind, and chutney dipping sauces. I wish this establishment continued success.

    I've been to Khan Saab lots of times, and the food is always consistently fantastic. There has not been a single thing on the menu that I tried and did not like. My go-to items are the goat cheese kulcha (a stuffed naan), malai chicken tikka, smoked beef kabab, and the biryani. Definitely try some of their delicious mocktails, too, and the smoked Negroni is my favorite. It's best to make reservations, especially on the weekends, as they can get quite busy.

    Great ambiance. Great service. Really impressive drink menu considering it's a non-alcoholic Muslim joint. Food presentation across the board was outstanding. The bhel puri and pani puri were really great. The main dishes needed more seasoning. Paneer Tikka was under-seasoned. Chola was underseasoned. Daal Bukhara was really good but a bit heavy on the butter/ghee component. The gulab jamun was outstanding -- very creative with the nutella.

    I came to LA for a vacation with my wife. I found this halal restaurant on OpenTable App and booked the reservation. We ordered Pani Puri, bun with keema (I forgot the name), chicken karahi, and lamb chop. The food was so tasty, like Karachi style. We are glad that we visit this restaurant. I strongly recommend this restaurant! We will go back again when we travel to LA. All waiters are on the floor to help customers. The cook/owner, Ali, was so humble and down to earth. He came to our table and asked for our feedback about the food. They all were great and friendly. Thank you for great food and hospitality.

    I expected a lot from this restaurant and was a bit disappointed. The food overall lacked flavor. Our drinks did not follow their respective description, the appetizers were not the correct temperature or texture, the meat entrees were super greasy, was a turn off, and the breads were too yeasty and dry. While I want to give this place another chance, I’m not ready to back yet.

    People usually pay for the experience or quantity or even quality, in this case I would say there was non. Quality is OK, some dishes are good others just ok. Experience and presentation are not great. Quantity, it depends, but would consider it as a expensive place.

    This is the second time that food has taken forever to arrive. Despite a reservation, we were seated 30 mins later and waited another 40 mins for food to arrive before giving up and leaving without eating. The time before this it also took more than an hour for food to arrive which they attributed to some mishap in the kitchen. Mishaps don’t happen every time.
