Environment and food quality was good.
Food was overpriced. Go only if you don't mind spending extra money.

Cannot believe Katachi has this kind of good food restaurant. Must try their seafood chowder. Steak is also very good.

Only their service need to improve. Waiter is not responsive at all.

You will not be disapointed by the standard of this restaurant. The food is even, the steaks are done to your liking, the pasta dishes are good and so are the pizza and the fish. The best thing is the food tatses the same everytime! On weekends the specials can be amazing. Book a table for dinners at weekends.

The restaurant works for both business and evening get togethers. Its setting mixes well with the traditional architecture of an old Railways facility, and uses well the leafy comfort of old trees. The restaurant though is contemporary and serves some of the better Italian cooking in the city. Try the seafood, of course, but especially their Pizza. I am not sure what kind of oven they use, but the pizzas come very close to the authentic. They have a complete menu with a very good list of starters , meat choices (that I have not tried), limited vegetarian and of course seafood. Service is good. Their outside seating looked charming, but we preferred the air-conditioned inside.

We used to regularly visit this place while we were still in Karachi, Pakistan years ago. This place has managed to keep the taste and look alive even after being there for a while.

Situated in the middle of not so high-end locality, it's a pleasure to see such a setup after crossing the general/approach area.

Outdoor seating is done well and they have managed to provide some extra air with cleverly placed fans high and far from the actual seating making it almost un-noticeable after a while.

Food is Italian with good selection of steaks. The chef knows how to maintain the requested temperature of your steaks so you will probably not be disappointed.

Service in the outside area is a slow and you have to actually look for a server, try to get his attention so he can come to you for abrupt requests.

Good and vey well prepared select on of starters and overall food.

One thing they need to ensure is not to let the current group of chefs go, or they will be in a mess.

Will definitely visit again. Management just need to think and possibly place a few out-door air conditioners, Karachi is a very humid city and the fans don't really fill the purpose, specially if you've been drinking there. Smoking is only allowed outside.

Will definitely go again and is recommended.

PS 1: They do not have drinks (liquor) on the menu, but if you carry a bottle with you, they serve it to you very nicely.

PS 2: I have clicked scenic only because it has a nice lush landscaped lawn in front of outdoor seating.
