Cuckoo's den was an amazing dining experience. The food was delicious, my favourite was the lambs brains which I loved but the Chicken Kurahai was also brilliant. The mint mojito was sooo refreshing also. For the best experience climb as high as you can and...More

Simply beautiful, the ambiance, the food and the collections all of it is beautiful. I would visit this place again. But it is a little over priced

I have been there twice when I visited Lahore, the old historical building with a traditional touch of spice. If you are an art lover then one must go through the art gallery of Cuckoo's. Especially, Harisa tastes great.

Yesterday we went to this terrible restaurant. We waited for our food for 3 hours! Also just for everyone who loves this restaurant we saw them buy there food from other restaurants and serve it.

It is a very good restaurant and its the oldest one in food street. The only draw back is that its very very expensive. So take some extra bucks if you want to try it.

One of the worst hotel n it's way too much overpriced with pathetic service. They took too long to serve your order lizards were visible clearly in their restaurant so no hygiene at all.
