BBQ Tonight

Reviewed By Xeeshu - Karachi, Pakistan

I have been to BBQ Tonight Many time.
Although like other places this is also going to be crowded every day, specially Friday to Sunday its hard to get seats easily, too much wait for getting your table.
The food is superb, taste is awesome, we tried grilled items but never forget the Brain Masala.
You may also avail the discount offers by paying through credit cards
Overall it is good, personal hygiene of waiters should be improve, dirty /stained uniforms didn't give good impression, sleeves should be tighten so it may not touch any item on table.

Cafe Flo

Reviewed By nchammmer - Karachi, Pakistan

We headed to Flo for a family members birthday and Flo does make you feel very special. We ordered the carpaccio, foie gras and calamari, each being their proven starters which didn’t dare to disappoint. The lamb shank risotto is without doubt the best in town after having tested it at all competing establishments and the steak was fabulous as always. Service and ambiance are 5 stars.

Okra

Reviewed By nchammmer - Karachi, Pakistan

Last night our family of four managed to get a last minute Seating at Okra for an early bird dinner. While I couldn’t make my mind up on what to order, we selected 3 starters and 3 mains. The tuna with soba noodles which is my personal fave was more delicious that ever before, next we were recommended the shrimps with ginger and what a fantastic recommendation it was - we loved it. The third starter was calamari which the girls said wasn’t the best in town, although I thought it very good still. For the mains I shared a green chili steak in butter and as I write this, I’m realizing it is my favorite steak in town, it just melts away like kobe beef on the palate. The lamb thought very tender got a mixed review as the risotto was a bit firm and the couscous with beef got thumbs up from my wife. At the end with had no space for desserts nor tea but lots of praise for the entire team Okra for a delicious experience.

Cafe Aylanto

Reviewed By PeterSulli - San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico

There is a lovely tranquility to this white-walled elegant restaurant, where the service is impeccable and the food superb. I had the grilled fish off a long and diverse menu and asked for it be spiced up a little, which they did by making it almost chilli-encrusted.
No alcohol of course as in all Karachi restaurants but lovely minty drinks take the edge off the heat. Companions had lamb, chicken and Turkey, all very pleased with the choice. Prices around $10 for mains.
A splendid Christmas night had by all.

Pompei Italian Restaurant Karachi

Fine dining Italian cuisine, using the very best local and imported produce, with an emphasis on contemporary interpretations of classic regional recipes

Reviewed By nchammmer - Karachi, Pakistan

After a lovely experience last month, I invited a guest from Lahore to dinner at Pompei. Reservations took a few hours to confirm which I didn't mind, but throughout our meal there was ample free Seating. I wasnt particularly happy with a table so close to the kitchen but we didn't fuss. Couple of other things...they were out of breasola and oven roasted chicken on a Friday night at 9pm, and we pondered how they could have run out of chicken at the first Seating on a weekend!
Food was very good again. I had pesto with spaghetti which was a unfortunately more like a pesto-alfredo, nonetheless it didn't disappoint. Their peppercorn beef and stuffed mushrooms were fantastic and far better than their peers. Would definitely order them again.
Overall a very quick dining experience. Restaurants have to learn to pace meals unless you have children on the table. Overall service was alright.
Oh, and my guest did mention that the ambience was far better than the Pompei in Lahore!

Ghaffar Kebab House

Reviewed By 427muhammedw - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

I have been visiting this place since when i was a kid. In more than thirty years, there tastes is still the same even seems better everytime I visit. Behari Boti, Afghani Boti, Dhaaga Kabab and tikka is one of my favourite. i prefer ordering paratha with all the BBQ items. Ambiance was not that good but when food is awesome who cares about ambiance.
