    Khan Saab Desai Craft Kitchen was *wonderful*. The food is so, so good. We had a number of delicious dishes, but the chicken karahi and the chicken biryani are standouts. The service was exceptional, and the atmosphere was great. Highly recommend, and we’ll certainly be back.

    Went for dinner with my family of 4. Very nice ambience and service for a Pakistani/Indian restaurant. Food presentation is excellent. I really enjoyed the malai chicken, biryani and the butter chicken. Naan are fresh and hot. Portions are on the smaller side. Price is kind of high when compared to other Pakistani restaurants but it is rare to find a Pakistani/Indian restaurant with this level of service and ambiance.

    We have been here several times and love the food . Last night my wife and I came for dinner , we have liked the Tomahawk steak and since it takes time we always order one as soon as we arrive so it does not take too long , we have done this over a dozen times , at $150 a steak it’s pricy but it has been worth it as we both have enjoyed it every time except for last night . The steak was ordered medium/well , it came out looking rare , it was the smallest one that we have had in the last dozen times we have ordered , it was not cooked well , too chewy and full on untrimmed fat , place was too noisy and the service was sub par at best . We don’t want to stop coming here and will give it another try but hope the establishment is not taking customers for granted , we have seen places go under when that happens , We haven’t hesitated spending the money for good quality food but to pay for $150 for a steak and get one that looks worse than what Sizzlers or Denny’s would offer is disappointing.

    This was our family’s second visit. We were all incredibly impressed with the flavors and presentations on our first visit. Without exaggeration, we ordered almost half the menu the first visit to share in our three generation party. This visit, everyone orders their own main, but we shared some appetizers and the two specialities of the house with the table. The flavors are perfect. I’m almost at a loss of how to truly describe what they are making in their kitchen. We brought my older brother from the East Coast for his first visit - and he insists that we come back next time he’s in town. They deserve every award that they have garnered over the past few years. And I don’t want to forget to point out how wonderful and inviting the service has been on both our visits. This is one of the most delicious restaurants in Orange County. Take the whole family. Explore the menu. Enjoy something truly unique in this area.

    A friend was in town and wanted to try this location as they had great reviews on Eatery. The service was fantastic! She was a real pro. The Pani Puri sounds good - but it's cold, which probably helps the stuffed pastry not get soggy. It's a crispy pastry, not a puffed one. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had been warm. The Sloppy Khan was exactly as expected and very tasty. My friend tried the butter chicken, and it was also as expected. Very good. I tried the Afghani Seekh Kabob. It was a little dry, overall, the spices were very tasty. I probably wouldn't order again though. We went a little crazy with the desserts and tried three: Shahi Gulab Jamun -Indian donuts, Nutella and chocolate wafers. These also had nuts on them, which I have a slight allergy too. This should be noted on the menu! The wafers were vanilla, not chocolate. Choco Samosa - Ghirardelli chocolate, shaved chocolate and vanilla gelato. I wanted to love this, but they used a very artificial strawberry sauce. From a place that has the word craft in their name; I expect more than that type of sauce. I would leave that sauce off of this dish completely. Double Ka Tukda - "Hyderabadi Bread Pudding" White bread, cream of milk and Khan Saab crumble. This didn't taste like a white bread to me. It had a very odd texture and very little actual flavor. I think this is a hit or miss, but overall, the cleanliness, service and the dishes we did like make it a 4-star experience.

    Food was mediocre the lamb chop was overly soft and powdery as the possibility of the meat tenderizer was use. Every dish ordered were acidic with no additional flavor profiles. The decor was nice but the virgin cocktails did not wow as it's just watered down with no complexity in the drink. Overall it is pricy for the food we received. Probably not going again

    Love this place normally but the service was not good very very slow. I know they were busy but it took way too long. Our waiter continued to make mistakes in our order and the bill overcharged us items we didn’t order. The food was very good as usual clean place but the prices seem to have gone up or seem way too high for the value

    What a great modern, fun take to desi cuisine. The food and the presentation was excellent. Great value for what you pay for. The staff was warm and attentive. If you're looking to host friends or family or even a date night, this is the place! The menu is friendly to those who are not aware of Indo-Pak cuisine. They also have a range of spice level which helps a lot.
