The restaurant is located inside the Pearl Continental Hotel and serves one of the best South Asian cuisine. Barbeque was juicy and succulent and curry perfectly made. The star of the evening is the Chilman biryani which is the must try for all visitors in Lahore. Highly recommended!

The food was really delicious. Exquisite stuff. The Biryani, i think they call it malay biryani or something close to this, was superb. We were a big group, and were sharing many different types of dishes; most of the things we tried were deliciouis.

Situated in One of the main food hub of Defence Housing Society, it is one of the best spot to eat lamb karahi, dumpkhut and bar b que. Interior is of wood with old and antique collection of pictures, guns, swords and electronics items kept with good aesthetics. Prices are good value for money and food taste is excellent.

Meal/Food was no doubt awesome but Taxes were incurred twice even though beverages are already taxed by our Government they had their own taxes over Beverage. So 3 Coke Cans costed me approx 750+ 180 Rs (2nd GST). Secondly, I asked them to pack the remaining food but they didn't pack everything. They skipped Reshmi Kababs and later asked me... More

Located in the Pearl Continental Lahore. We Loved the Reshmi Kebab, marinated in mint sauce gives it a special flavour. The helpings are big and the Mutton shank was well cooked in a gravy. The three different types of Roti's the spinach one, the plain one and the one with Bran complement most of the dishes. Will visit again definitely!... More
