We should have found this place much earlier! We missed eating great kababs and never found a decent one till now.

Amazing delicious mouth watering succulent chicken pieces well cooked and great pricing too!! This is our new to go restaurant and we are just too delighted to find it. Will highly recommend friends here.

We tried the boti kabab, chicken tabdoori sandwich and chicken tikka naan! They were superb! 5 stars! The mint chutney was too good and went well with the sandwich. The tikka masala to be added to the naan made it even better!! The quantity of chicken in the naan was surprising! Enough to satisfy a hungry tummy. Worth the price.

Try the free tea delicious and refreshing nit to missed .. max no of cups 3 mini nes unfortunately.

Very tiny place but overflowing with orders and smiling friendly ystaff. This is more of a to go place or u can consider seating outside 3 /4 picnic tables sheltered a few feet away. More like a mini dhaba.

For spice levels this was perfect and woykd consider it mild so even a nonindian who would lke to try kababs should try it ..

I liked the walls full of positive feedback for the owner after a great meal there.

This is not a sit down place for families though they have a about 3-4 tables.

Variety of items to choose from.will try the sizzles they looked yummy!

Ample parking all around. Am not sure of week days due to office crowd. Just off 101 near google office. Take a to go n g to shoreline and enjoy! Great meal with a great relaxing place.

Will be here back next week to try something else...

Stopped in for dinner for a Shoreline concert. Long line, but they are very efficient and it moved quickly - the line was out the door and we ordered and were served in a little over 10 minutes. Décor is somewhat minimal, but with nice touches.

But the food. It seems like the Bay Area is short of this kind of food, despite the number of Indian restaurants. Everything was very good, chicken tikka especially. Was concerned about it being too oily from a few reviews, all I can say is it wasn't last night. Planning on coming back sometime when it's less crowded.

Focused side note - Zareens is a 4 minute walk from the Tesla supercharger in Mountain View. Previously I had no idea. Now, I will make a point of walking over when I'm charging - both take 30 minutes. Apologies for the irrelevance to non Tesla owners.

Loved the food, tried a few dishes and all were quite good but definitely very oily. Also the space is limited so one is tempted to carry out food but then it gets cold by the time you get home and reheating isn't the same experience any more.

So we might go there again a couple more time perhaps but definitely not going to be a regular there.

I would visit this place again and again just to eat the Chicken Samosas.
The place is generally very busy during lunch/dinner hrs. The seating area is small, so I always prefer take-out.

Whenever I visit Shoreline Park, I make sure I stop by here and have a hearty meal!!
