The buffet setting is not right i.e. there is no air conditioning and one has to literally walk through sun to reach the sitting area.

The only negative thing is that they don't accept credit/debit cards. This is a fine-dining place and the bill for two easily crosses 3000 pkr, the card facility should be available.

Lal Qila is very famous in karachi. They served 100 types of dishes at a time. In summer Lal Qila is not good because there are lot of mosquitoes & there is no airconditioning system. Food quality is also not good, food is cold not hot.
