Pakwan first opened its doors in 1999 when two partners, Khalid Amin and Mohammad Shahbaz, decided it was time to turn their dream into reality. Their vision of an authentic and traditional Bay Area Pakistani Indian restaurant planted its roots in San Francisco, where Pakwan quickly became an acclaimed favorite amongst families, businesses and tourists. Amid the hundreds of restaurants in San Francisco, Pakwan is hard to miss, with traditional setting only added to the restaurant's recognition and popularity. Due to its successful beginning as a recognized Bay Area San Francisco Pakistani Indian restaurant, Pakwan established more locations in the East Bay (Hayward and Fremont).
