“Great Visit, Wonderful Views”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Cuckoo's Den is one of its kind place in Lahore with winding stairs and waiting lines and reservations required in the middle of the inner city where you would have to wait for one hour or so if you dont have a reservation. It is not about the food. Although the food is good and tasteful and a little expensive for the type of food. It is more about the ambiance, the culture and the feel of the old city that haunts you when you leave the place. It is not a food experience but a more of a soul experience. If you visit on a winter night, it would leave its impact on you.

“Delicious - with a fabulous view of the mosque”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Very tasty and delicious food and good service. Situated right by the old mosque - you can sit on the roof with a view across the old fort and city. They're used to tourists - the staff are very friendly.

“Best view and excellent food!!!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Went their with my kids a month ago. Best months to go is in winters(Nov-march)
Food was excellent. A bit high priced but nothing if you convert it into dollars.
Best time to go there is just before sunset as you can see the surrounding area also and then enjoy the lighting effects of Bhadshahi mosque and Fort.
As an appetizer, I ordered a Paratha with Pakistani milky tea. It was excellent.
Will advise my foreigner friends to really try it.
