Had a pretty nice Pakistani meal at Indus Village in Berkeley last night. It's a small hole-in-the-wall on San Pablo, less than a block north off of University.
From the specials board we ordered vegetarian somosas and the Beef Nihari. The somosas were crunchy and greaseless on the outside and hot and spicy on the inside. They also came on a bed of tasty chickpeas. The Nihari consisted of three large chunks of tender braised beef in a heavily seasoned curry of cardimon, clove, ginger, and lemon. It also came medium spicy as advertised.
We also tried the tandori chicken leg which was tasty although a bit over-chared, and the fresh herb & onion stuffed Naan.
The food, prices and service were all good. I'll be back.
