Great setting and excellent food. Make sure you get a seat overlooking the mosque and fort. The food is freshly prepared and simply out of the world.

As noted in other reviews, the rooftop view of the Badshahi Masjid (mosque) is beautiful. Go to this restaurant at dusk and enjoy the setting. I went with a group and the food was excellent. We had the chicken karahi (curry) and lentil karahi as well as Tandoori roti and garlic nann (two types of bread). As a special treat,... More

We arrived at 1am to be seated and fed! It was closing time but a full grill of chicken kebabs were being turned on the charcoal grill on the top floor! The staff were polite and accomodating. We did our customary photographing as the lights on the mosque go out at 1am. Now our food was served fresh, in a... More

this place has some character and when seated at the roof top you have the best view in Lahore. it is not that expensive and you can order a mixed grill which will be good enough to enjoy a full meal with two people

The views were good. However the food is over rated. And more importantly, the ethics are extremely questionable. If you feel strongly about Zionism then please, please avoid going to this place. The museum openly displays shamlesness in the name of Art...

I visited with a friend for dinner. As much as we loved the view of Badshahi Masjid, Lahore Fort and other monuments visible from it's rooftop, we were disappointed by the quality of service for a restaurant that has a price range that crosses the top restaurants in Lahore. Furthermore, I gave them my credit card to charge and he... More
