This no-frills mini-chain (there’s a second location at 501 O’Farrell St) is cheap, quick and authentic. Order at the counter and wait alongside the rowdy masses until your order is called, then snag a table and chow down. What Pakwan lacks in ambiance, it makes up for in well-executed classics, from tandoori barbecue to lamb biryani and saag paneer to butter chicken. Both the heat and the portion sizes are generous. Fortunately, it’s BYOB, so you can douse your tingling tongue with a beer or three.
