I was invited for dinner by business associates at this nice italian restaurant. We sat outside on a beautiful February evening with many of the tables occupied. Both the food and the service were very good. We had some starters that we shared and I particularly liked the artichoke dip. I had a nice ravioli dish which was served al... More

Pompei is my favourite restaurant in Karachi. From breads to soups, pizzas to steaks, starters to desserts it's top class.

Pompei is one of the best eateries in Karachi. They serve decent italian fare and their steaks and pizzas are really really good. The apetizers are excellent especially the artichoke dip and the garlic mushrooms. do try the seafood chowder which is the best i have had in Karachi.

Environment and food quality was good. Food was overpriced. Go only if you don't mind spending extra money.

Cannot believe Katachi has this kind of good food restaurant. Must try their seafood chowder. Steak is also very good. Only their service need to improve. Waiter is not responsive at all.

You will not be disapointed by the standard of this restaurant. The food is even, the steaks are done to your liking, the pasta dishes are good and so are the pizza and the fish. The best thing is the food tatses the same everytime! On weekends the specials can be amazing. Book a table for dinners at weekends.

The restaurant works for both business and evening get togethers. Its setting mixes well with the traditional architecture of an old Railways facility, and uses well the leafy comfort of old trees. The restaurant though is contemporary and serves some of the better Italian cooking in the city. Try the seafood, of course, but especially their Pizza. I am not... More

We used to regularly visit this place while we were still in Karachi, Pakistan years ago. This place has managed to keep the taste and look alive even after being there for a while. Situated in the middle of not so high-end locality, it's a pleasure to see such a setup after crossing the general/approach area. Outdoor seating is done... More

Having heard quite a bit about Pompei we went there for Friday lunch. Mistake. Service was OK until there was a bit of a rush and then it went down hill. There was too much salt in everything and some of the pasta was undercooked. May have been a one off but they better improve the quality of food otherwise... More

Pompeii is the hottest restaurant of Karachi; the ambiance has the elegance of Victorian architecture from the British colonial past and the unique decor of the interior mixes up to create the impressive aura of this restaurant. The food served is very good and so is the service; must haves are their 'sea food chowder soup', 'grilled red snapper' and... More
