Located on the corner of Sixth and R streets, Red Toque Cafe is a popular neighborhood spot for kebabs, biryani, curry, and more near Yale West. Blending the flavors of Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines, this Pakistani restaurant has a large and devoted following among Shaw locals. Diners particularly recommend the lamb biryani, grilled chicken kebabs, and sides of golden, crispy samosa stuffed with spiced veggies.
The cozy dining room is bright and pleasant, appointed with clean and simple tableware, checkerboard tile, and large street-facing windows. Eating in is always a pleasure, but Red Toque also does a brisk carry-out and delivery business — busy enough, in fact, that regulars recommend getting your order in before peak times.
Seth, the business owner, has a reputation for being very proactive about responding to customers, so be sure to get in touch with him if you have any questions or concerns.
