Awesome food. Better than the restaurant "ANDAZ" at the same road. Went to both the places, andaz disappointed me and my appetite was lost due to the smell in kababs, cuckoo's den was comparatively far better, must try.

Lahore has recently (read: 5 years) develop Fort Food Court, that offers variety of food mostly Rich Pakistani Cuisine. The additional point is for the view, it offers amazing view of Badshahi Mosque, Minare Pakistan and Gurdwara! It's like having the entire Culture served together! Must Visit! P.S. Check my pictures for the views!

The ambience and view from the rooftop of this ex house of Ill repute if lovely. However, the food is basic and poorly prepared and presented and the staff are indolent. Such a shame as it is such a tourist destination.

The location of this restaurant is nice, view of the Badshahi Mosque was amazing, but this place is dirty. I have never seen any restaurant dusty and filthy like this. The taste of the food was good but service and ambience was terrible. There are so many options in Lahore offering better food and ambience with same price. Stay away... More
