“True presentation of Lahori Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

The place is highly recommended for local punjabi/lahori cusine. Though due to eid holidays place was quite crowded however there wasnt any issue in placing us. Due to nice weather outdoor seating made it a memorable dine out experience for us. Apart from strong competetion from nearby restaurants at Qadaffi Stadium "Dera" lived upto its standard. Good!

“Good Desi Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Good desi food being served at this restaurant. What i liked about my last visit is that i tried the mutton balty which was served in a traditional way and was really good in taste as well. Rest is the typical traditional style ambience.
