Pakwan is a simple, inexpensive Pakistani-Indian option very close to Union Square, and it always comes through for us. The menu is full of classics like tandoori dishes and curries, and it’s perfect for a casual meal with friends. Get a lot of naan, some biryanis, and a curry or two, and you’ll be ready for whatever else your day/night has in store.
