Barbecue and more

This is a scaled down branch of the iconic Karachi restaurant but still offers a lot. The barbecue is great and there's a lot of choices on the menu besides that. Service is prompt and courteous. Definitely worth a visit.

This is an outstanding BBQ, the best traditional Pakistani BBQ. Love the great taste and amazing variety on the menu. They are so quick to serve the hot fresh food.

We visited this place some time ago. The food and ambiance was good but the standard of cooking was no way near the Karachi branch. Yes the prices of items were exactly like the Clifton branch (LOL). We came satisfied after taking food here as everything was well made.

This is a good place to eat desi food. Standards have reportedly fallen over the years though. But they offer nicely done BBQ.

The quantity was sufficient for 4 members including two kids. The taste was great but the price tag was on the higher side as compared to contemporary restaurants of similar class. The... More

Good bbq food and good ambience. We ordered a half platter and add some other dish and had very fun evening with good food. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening in Islamabad. Would recommend to other visitors to Islamabad. Don't forget to eat the movenpick icecream!

BBQ tonight is a franchise of the famouse BBQ tonight restaurant of Karachi. It provides a variety of local dishes but basically it is a Barbeque resturaunt. The Barbeque is quite good, but not as good as the original restaurant in Karachi.

Service was very good and the ambience decent. The grilled chicken (boti) was fine but the beef kabobs were great - wonderfully spiced and certainly our favorite. Enjoyed the experience and it is close to our guest house so will definitely be back.
