Parking is always an Olympic event in the Mission, but Pakwan is worth it. You can buy beer across the street at the liquor store and bring it in. The restaurant is packed with people at all times. You go in, order at the counter while keeping an eye on tables that are about to open. You have to grab them yourself. I personally like to hover above people who are almost done so that they will leave. :P The place is great for take-out as well. The Roxy is half a block away and I have gone there for a foreign film and have brought Pakwan with me. Eating Chicken Masala, Lamb Biryiani, and Aloo Gobi in the dark while watching the magic of Wong Kar Wat is really a thumbs up in my book. Especially for under $25. Loud, flavorful, colorful, spicy, quick, filling and always a good time.
Pakwan is my favorite Indian/Pakistani restaurant. They have the best nan, which is freshly made after you order. So its always warm and soft.
The few dishes on the menu are all tasty and most complement the nan well.
Pakwan is not the cleanest place and it is self-service.
You go for the food not the ambiance.
