Anarkali in Concord

Can't find a mention of this great Pakistani-Indian place, tucked behind the shopping center with the Ranch 99 in Concord. 5 of us went a couple weeks ago and had four of the curries and a couple tandoori dishes. The tandoori was OK, but the curries were excellent - each with distinct flavors. We had (in order of my preference):
- Achari Chicken: probably my favorite, with the great undertone of sourness (which I guess comes from the achar)
- Machlee Fish Curry: also fantastic, really rich flavor
- Gosht Curry: really good, not very spicy (esp given the menu description) which I suspect is because they toned it down for us (i.e., caucasian family with 3 kids). Still good but I'd ask them to kick up the spice next time
- Palak Aloo: good rendition, nothing special but tasty

If anyone has tried the biryanis or other curries, would love to hear about it.
