Best BBQ in Karachi

It's the best with regard to the taste and service. However, in Summers it becomes really hot inside the restaurant. Still it's giving a great value for money. The best to eat here is kabab fry, chicken tikka, reshmi kabab and nihari.

I have tried various restaurants where they serve Kebabs or they say it is their speciality but trust me Gola Kebabs at Ghaffar's is out of this world. If someone has tried other restaurants and not theirs then they have really missed something. But they are a bit spicy.

Best for take out. Reshmi kabab is heavenly, malai boti was so so while the gola kabab was also very good. Parathas were very good also.

You will forget Kebab King of New York's Jackson Heights. One of the Best tasteful Kebabs and BBQ dishes on the menu you will find here. The Menu is long and has got many dishes. Just order your favourite one and hit back again and again to this cuisine. A must try for everyone if you are in K town.

The Dhaga kababs and fried kabab are the best items on the menu. Lacked the spice in Tikkas. The restaurant at Port Grand is slightly expensive compared to the one inside the city.

Smoked Bbq cooked followed by butter fried is not something we usually get in most Bbq restaurant. But Ghaffar's special Bbq kebab fry wins the contest among many famous restaurants. Dont go thr for Nihari, its pathetic. Malai boti and other Bbq items are good to try. Go in group, they dnt give tables to single or doublet unless they... More

Its a very good option for the BBQ located in the center of Karachi. Very famous for its parathas. I always go when it comes to eat typical Desi BBQ. It has so many varieties and can accommodate family gatherings.

Its always a treat to visit this restaurant. Quality of food is always excellent, especially my favourite chicken behari & beef boti. The well marinated spices add to the taste. My son's favourite Pakola soft drink is a speciality of Karachi. Poori paratha and spicy chutni would add a special flavour. The only problem with this restaurant is seating in... More
