The location of the restaurant is not good. Located at a place with heavy traffic. Service poor. Items moderately delicious. Not expensive.

Much over rated restaurant in peshawar. reason could be that it came into service when compitition was weak in the city .

Not a good place to choose. Better substitutes are available on the same road. Parking problem. Small space. No delicious dishes.

Reviewed January 9, 2012 Few years back I had buffet dinner at this restaurant but that wasn't impressive. This time I along with my family came here for buffet dinner. It was simply great. Lot of variety and good taste plus friendly staff. Highly recommended for all..

Thank Adnan H
