. It was total disappointment from beginning to end. During my visit to Pakistan I decided to try this restaurant with my family. We were greeted by door Guard and that is the only positive thing I found here. Nobody was present to assist us in seating. We spent few minutes there and finally one guy in waiter uniform popped...

The tomb of the most famous ruler of Punjab - Ranjit Singh..he was loved and revered by all living under his rule. Punjab prospored like no other state under his rule. Must have been a beautiful tomb, but neglet over the years has taken its toll. Inside is beautiful and the guide is very knowledgable. Only open to non Pakistanis... More

I love this place for dinners. Go there with a big gathering and you will be entertained really well. Try to sit outside not inside the building. You will get to enjoy the typical local touch of our Punjabi roots. Food is good at a very reasonable price. I went there many times not only once. There is a car... More

I wonder who put the picture of Ranjit Singh's Tomb, where he was Cremated. This is certainly not Dera restaurant, which is located in an unattractive, street side outdoor setting. This picture is a Holy site for the Sikh religion, and has no business to be associated with an ordinary road side restaurant.

Although proper dining available inside, we enjoyed the outdoor under the moonlight and clear night sky. One sad-back was difficulty to read the menu due to poor lighting. We enjoyed freshly cook chicken buryani, raita, salad, chicken krai, garlic and crispy nans. My recommendations are the soft garlic nan, crispy nan and thick creamy raita which relatively better than others... More

An excellent experience of the traditional taste of Lahore, Handi's and balti dishes are the must try. Service has improved.

A good choice for Pakistani Food/BBQ dinning in outdoor, whether with friends or with family you can have good food.

I love the place and the food as well! Do try their chicken sajji, chicken satrangi and chicken baltti! the ambiance is typically pakistani, yet neat and clean. traditional drinks like lassi are made fresh and there is live local music too! do try it if you're looking for an authentic pakistani experience!

We were a group of around 8 people and seated indoor. The sitting outside was quite nice earlier, it seems they have removed it. The food is good and the environment peaceful. You cannot go there by Rickshaw since its not allowed in Qaddafi Stadium. They have some good offers on Lunch.

Actually we mainly ordered Desi chicken in makkhan but our karahi's were on the sweetish side so DERA didn't impressed us at all if you looking to eat Desi Karahi's. Though kabab and batair were better but our main order of karahi's disappointed us!
