We had a superb curry out with friends last week at Pakwan Indian Restaurant in Lake Road in Devonport (well actually it's more Bayswater). This is a very small restaurant in which the vast majority of people were Indian and they were more-so set up for takeaways. It is not a flash restaurant by any means (in fact it's quite the opposite) but the curries were very flavoursome and enough for two people. I did however find that my hot curry wasn't hot at all and was in fact closer to mild; maybe specifying Indian hot may have been a better idea.
The service was very genuine. It's definitely not trying to be anything special and the dishes are delivered when they're ready and if that means the rice comes out 5 minutes after the other dishes come out then so be it.
It is worth noting that they are BYO and do not sell liquor.
