    We liked all the dishes ordered (chicken 65, tandoori chicken, dal lala mussa, naan). The service was good. Our waitress was friendly. One note of improvement: The food was a tad bit slow to come out. The timing of dishes can be improved. Also, the portion of dishes can be just a little bit bigger. Overall, my husband and I enjoyed it.

    Service was great and everyone is friendly, but I let the staff know that chef should use much less oil in their dishes. It was the most oil in a curry or vegetable dish I’ve ever had. Also the butter chicken was very bland on top of being excessively oily. If they tweak some things in the kitchen these dishes will be much better I’m sure.

    We were at the restaurant at 8.12. A table with 6 guests was ready. There is no host but asked a water, and talked to a woman, seems like a host and he said will seat them at empty table. The woman and he talked for a while, looked at seating chart and gave the table to other group. We waited 25 min and no communication and finally gave us a table where they joined two 2 square tables and one round table. The seating was odd. Overall disappointed with hostess and lack of respect to guests with reservations. Our waiter was very friendly and did took care of us. Food was good. They charged 18% service charge and again listed 15% tip. I didn’t see this with other top rated restaurants. 4 to 6 % service charge seems reasonable. Overall not happy.

    Poor experience. We were very excited to come til we walked into the door and no one greeted us. Then finally we get someone’s attention and told them a party of 2 with reservations. Mind you there were many tables available and the waiter chooses to split a table right in front of the door and tells us to sit. I request to be seated by the window. We sit and nobody greets us and no menus brought to us until we ask for it. Great food but poor customer service.

    Khan Saab is superb in every way. You might have to wait, if only for a few minutes for a table even with a reservation. But, wait! You will be happy you did. Ask for help with the menu, the staff will explain contents, spices, and flavors. The food is amazing in its taste, the service is joyful, the bill is acceptable. It’s difficult to find fault with Khan Saab.

    Of all the items we picked, the lamb chops and garlic naan was ok, though the lamb was overcooked. The Bhindi was slimy, as if it hadn’t even been blanched first. The Aloo Gobi was swimming in ghee (oil) as was the Butter Chicken. It was so loud that you couldn’t even hear the people at your own table speak. We had such high hopes when we saw that they were supposed to have a Michelin Star, but we have had much better Indian food at The Peacock in Diamond Bar.

    The service was very rushed. It felt like they wanted to get us in and out. We ordered an appetizer, and when our appetizer came out, our food was right behind. When they gave us our check they came to take it before we even looked at it They need to slow their service down so people can enjoy their meal in the restaurant.

    Love the food and staff is nice, dinner takes a little while but worth it, the only hiccup is it’s too smoky inside, more ventilation or hood needs to be considered, I didn’t complain the last two visits but last night my eyes started to water and burn a little Bieber it’s too cold to eat outside so hopefully they’ll look into this issue soon🙏🏼

    I was so excited to try this restaurant but my expectations were not met, unfortunately. The service was friendly but we had to wait SO long for our food. One of the orders was incorrect and then we had to wait even longer. We were charged for three naans and only received two. The entree description mentioned shishito peppers for one of the orders but there was a big jalapeño in the middle of the entree, no shishitos. The butter chicken was very good and the only highlight of the night.

    Khan Saab is one of my fave restaurants to go to any time. The food is always consistently good, no matter what you order. The garlic naan is out-of-this-world crazy good and goes well with butter chicken or chicken karahi. It is 100% halal so Muslims don’t have to worry when you’re dining here. It is always best to make reservations, especially if you have a big group because this restaurant is always busy.

    Just be careful of what you order. My server said the chicken biryani is a 7 on a scale of 1/10 for heat. I asked if the dish could be made medium instead of a 7. I was told “no”. I think this is a shortcoming of a restaurant of this caliber. Also, the noise level was too high. It was difficult to converse with my friend across the table. The food is good, through, so I’ll probably try a different night, not a Saturday night.
