“A street full of taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Well although I have not been there in over a year since I live in Saudi Arabia now I truly cherish my memories and the food on the Food Street at Boat Basin. You will find all kind of cuisines here on Boat Basin from Chinese to Arabic and from Pakhtoon to Indian everything is available at a very suitable price and delicious taste. You can choose to sit in the open air section or indoors and yet both these sections have their own attractions, the road side cabins serve pans and suparis which a lot of people use after dinner. Some restaurants also serve sheesha, my favorite dish there would be Mix Biryani by Handi Inn.

“A taste of the Orient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

The dwellers of Karachi will tell you that this is THE place to be when it comes to socializing and tasting ecclectic cuisines. From Afghani boti to Chicken Tikka to Nihari, this array of restaurants has it all. And those not in the mood to whet their palates with the exotic masalas, their is also pizza and fried chicken. Catch the gentle southern breeze as you delve into the food and take a walk in the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Park that covers the periphery of the basin. Between the late evening and the early hours of the morning the place is abuzz with colour and laughter, being the preferred haunt of both the social elite and the dancing dervishes.
