Blink and you’ll definitely miss this one. Near the entrance ramp of Route 9 North, coming from Matawan, there’s a bright lime green no-non-sense roadside Pakistani kebab shop, naan bakery, and halal butcher.
Everything is made fresh to order, and it’s strictly take-out. This is a call ahead type of place. If you stop in to check it out, expect to wait 30-40min.
Best choices are namesake kebabs (chicken tikki botis, chicken seekh kababs, or whole tandoor chickens).
Thurs-Sun brings specials such as biryani and the Pakistan speciality nihari (slow-stewed meat in a robust sauce.)
Don’t forget your order of naan, or chicken keema naan.
