As divey as restaurants come, this longtime Mission favorite is the perfect place to come for authentic Pakistani curries. It's far from fine dining, and you'll have to buy your beer across the street and carry it in (no liquor license), but the crowds at dinnertime testify to the unpretentious awesomeness of Pakwan's food. It can be a bit of a free-for all, so if you're coming with a group, arrive early and stake out a table!

This Mission District hole in the wall serves some of the most authentic Indian/Pakistani food I have had outside India. You have to wait in line to order at the counter, and often have to bus your own table if you dont want to look at the dirty plates from the previous guests while you wait (in other words, not a great place to bring a date). But the food is tasty, spicy and very cheap, with naan coming out of the tandoor all day long. The Bengan Bartha and the Saag Paneer are my favorites. They don't have a liquor license, but let you bring your own wine (there is a liquor store across the street).

Nothin' fancy except good ol' Pakistani and Indian food at great prices. Off-the-hook Tandoori dishes complement well their naan with the consistency of an edible down feather pillow. Open late and BYOB for the hip Mission crowd.

Nom nom nom. Good, cheap Indian and Pakistani food, garlic naan bread that you could use as a pillow, delicous saag paneer, and all at outstanding prices. It's not fancy, but it's open late (11pm or midnight, I think) and they have some of the best Indian and Pakistani food in all of San Francisco. (If you really want good Indian food, I've heard Fremont is the city for it, but that's an hour away.)

I love Pakwan!! It's some of the most delicious (yet affordable) Indian and Pakistani cuisine available. The portions are generous and constantly made fresh. Their nan is so good and fluffy, but they also have a variety of specialities - from chicken specialties to vegetarian friendly items. They actually have 4 locations total, 2 in the east Bay, and 2 in the city. this one, located in the Mission, is home to one of the cozier Pakwan's.Recommended for:Vegetarian
