“Nice Buffet Every Night”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

ZAMANA is located at the main restaurant of SERENA hotel, every night they have very large of continental and international dishes with good quality.
One can find plates of JAPANESE,CHINESE, EGYPTIAN,LIBANIES,TURKISH and of course PAKISTANI kitchen .
They are mainly serving the spicy sauces and hot staff saperetaly , so you can choose evry dish with or without hot staff.
No alcoholic drinks are served, like %99 of the places at PAKISTAN but they have some nice juices and mocktails.

“One of the best buffet”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

It can rightly be called as of the best buffet in Islamabad though its a bit expensive but the range of recipes neutralizes it. The overall look and feel of the restaurant is quite traditional. The food range, presentation and quality is excellent. I have visited the restaurant a number of times and every time it is better and different than the previous one. I definately recommend this good restaurant to others.

“Amazing buffet!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

This restaurant had a huge selection for buffet breakfast at Sunday brunch time. A Pakistan-India cricket match was playing on a large screen and there is not too much rush and there is a large area outside where people can enjoy the fresh air and walk around in the landscaped area.

The food itself was great - make sure you go on an empty stomach as you will find Pakistani, Western and all other varieties of food you can think of. There was a crepe station, a shawarma station, an egg station and steak, chicken, fish, shrimp etc. etc. Lots of food for kids and adults. Service was good too.

“Much Below Par Restaurant”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

visit to Zamana restaurant in Serena hotel tuned out to be a much below par affair when we visited it for dinner the other night. the ordeal started right from the main gate. in the name of security the incompetent staff was attempting to camouflage its lethargy in the name of thorough checking. the high point was when one of the staff on the inner gate wanted to body search a 3 months baby in the crib while grown up gentlemen were brisk walking by him along with their bags. the buffet food was a routine menu with nothing special to show. the standard of service too was below average. the price too steep for the quality offered
