“Tongue-in-cheek Decadence”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

Priced slightly on the higher side of most dessert-only joints, the Hot Spot does great ice-cream, frozen yoghurt and sundaes. Home-made cakes and crumbles, and lavish sundaes make this place a solid go-to spot for dessert. The Supersonic Superfudge is a star, as is the apple crumble.

The menu isn't quite as varied as it used to be (so many savouries have been taken off the menu now) but the sandwiches are still pretty good. Be warned - if you've passed puberty, you may feel ancient in the regular crowd.

“Great for a splurge”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Quite pricey, but those ice creams are really, really delicious! THe selection is good, lots of different and a bit unusual flavors. Big big portions, I was not able to finish two scoops of ice cream despite the nice taste. They also have a couple of salty dishes if you haven't eaten. The place looks good, with lots of posters on the walls to look at if you are alone or with boring company...

“Exceptional home-made ice cream”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

Hotspot started in Islamabad as a home-made ice cream spot, with the years its grown into a unique dessert and snacks place. They provide quality taste...the only downer about the Karachi branch is the management and working staff, they don't seem to welcome and deal with their customers.
