If you can overcome the surrounding and the actual state of the place then the food is very tasty - I went there with family who took me for Nehari and it was good with fresh roti. Another time we went for lassi and broast. Cheap food.

Boat basin spoils you for choices. Many an option. Nihari Inn, Tandoori Hut, Qasr e Nakheel, Baloch ice cream, Rajoo... The recent discovery was Katakat at Master Broast, without the sound of Katakat. I was wondering how can it be good, but I was mistaken. It was awesome

If you want to try variety of tasty food stuff at one location then it is the right place. The food served is mostly fresh and hot. The service is also satisfactory. The issue which you face is once you are accompanied as it is no more a family place for decent people.

It is best place to have a meal in open air. there are some 50 to sixty restaurants side by side offering different type of food, Kebabs, Broast, Karhai and loot more. Desi qulfi and Ice cream parlours also there.

This is a foodie's paradise. You will find different restaurants selling various types of food ranging from snacks, to drinks, icecreams to hearty meals. One is spoilt for choice and the best bit is that most food items are reasonably priced and not to hard on the pocket. There are some restaurants selling pakistani specialities such as biryani , nihari... More

its an excellent dining option, specially late night... every person can find a restaurant according to his liking.... My favourite is Tandoori Hut, where I usually order Stuffed Chicken... other restaurants are Thali Inn, Dera, Qasr ul Nakheel, etc

Good food ! I usually have the Shawarma Platter which is very tasty. Other than that you will find Nehari, BBQ, Ice creams and other desi food. Outdoor and indoor sitting great to have dinner with family
