BBQ Tonight is a must visit for an authentic experience of Pakistani BBQ cuisine. They have a huge turnout so every thing is fresh. Their staff is excellent and polite, and valet service invaluable in a city of 20+ million. I'd recommend them strongly if you're looking for some safe, authentic BBQ experience.

this place is still very busy even after more then 25 years. which is very extraordinary. normal life of a restaurant in karachi is 10-15 years.owners roam around all the time to check the everything. food qaulity is extra ordinary. even in week days you have to come early to get a table. my family loves to go there

BBQ tonight located near boat basin has expanded significantly over last 10 years or so. Visited the place in October 2014 after a lapse of about 5-6 years. one thing that I noticed was exorbitant prices being charged for the food. though the quality of food was good I think it has come down from yesteryears. definitely its not value...

Best Place to invite guests, Very Near to Karachi Clifton Beach. Specially in winter is best for Fish & Prawns, Afghani Tikka Bar B Q is best also. I give it 5 Star.

Despite its popularity among Karachiites, I found BBQ tonight highly overrated. Recently i went there with some colleagues for an iftar dinner and found that food is "average" and service is nothing less than disaster.Buffet refill pace had been like "Misbah ul haq/s century" for non cricketers "watching paint dry" All in all its not worth visiting again! It wasn't... More
