Al Noor VS. Al Watan (Pakistani food).....the results are in

I decided to check out Al Watan, after posting about Al Noor and hearing Al Watan was just as good. Well....not in my book. Don't get me wrong, it was very good, but I like Al Noor WAAAAAY BETTER. At Al Watan, the restaurant was a bit nicer, as someone described (though not much), the service was friendly, more organized, and a lot faster, but the entrees we ordered were a little on the greasy side and not as tasty, def not as spicy. The Chicken Tikka Masala was a little chewy and fatty. The spicy beef potato dish we ordered (can't think of the name) was REALLY greasy. My husband and I took along my mother, who isn't a big fan of Pakistani food (and has never tried Al Noor), but surprisingly she loved it. My husband and I were disappointed.
