Dewan-E-Khass Pakistani-Indian Cuisine

YVRChow | Dec 21, 201501:46 PM     4

This spot at 5750 Fraser has turned over again and the new restaurant is called Dewan-E-Khass. They have put up new signage and made the interior quite welcoming. It feels less hole-in-the-wall than previous restaurants in the spot have felt.

The menu has a mixture of Pakistani and Indian cuisine. I ordered the lunch special vegetable biryani ($7.99) which came with a complimentary side of raita. The spicing on the biryani was spot on. The complex seasoning profile highlighted the vegetables mixed in nicely with a very pleasant level of heat. The veggies were cooked perfectly so that they had a slight chew to them instead of just being mushy. The complimentary raita served to cool the spice level and the small bits of vegetables in the raita added nice texture as well. Overall a lovely lunch for a very reasonable price.

Service was extremely professional and on top of things too. Water was regularly refilled without asking, and done so with a smile.

I will definitely be back to work my way through the rest of the menu to see how everything else is. Based upon the biryani things look promising!
