Malika Canteen

Malika, which refers to "Queen" in Urdu language, offers soulful Pakistani street food celebrating the exotic flavors Charleston has come to love through Ma'am Saab! Chef Maryam, along with her husband, Co-Owner and Creative Director Raheel Gauba, are bringing a taste of Pakistan culture and cuisine to the Lowcountry.

Street food is an essential part of everyday life in Pakistan. Maryam's fondest memories include going out with family and friends and visiting streetside cafe's (dhabas) enjoying chaats and biryanis. Malika was created to deliver the flavors, sights and sounds that mean the world to me, but what I hope you'll walk away with are moments that you will cherish forever.

Expect dishes like Chicken Tikka Masala, Chapli Kabab, Biryanis and Kabab Rolls alongside Creamy Mango Lassi, Masala Lemonade and favorites from Pakistan and India such as Pakola, ThumsUp and RoohAfza Go! Perfectly paired, beer, wine and cocktails are also available.
