“excellent taste and quality with superb service!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

this is one of the newer resturants in karachi. It has not only marked its placed as one of the best but also raised the bar in terms of service for other resturants. I have been here many many times and not once left unhappy. During the meal and also before i leave, there will always be someone asking if everything was ok and if i had any complains. I once complained about one of the dishes not as good as last time and within minutes the dish was replaced and the manager personally supervised and made sure that i tasted the second dish and approve it. This was definitely impressive and proves how hard these people work to make sure they win their guests and keep them happy.
The over all taste of the food is excellent but some people might find it a bit spicy if not used to pakistani cuisine. so should specify while placing order. Must try are bbq chicken chargha, lahori fish, chicken/mutton karahi, makhni handi, mutton chops, malai chicken boti, zafrani kulfi.kashmiri chai.
The resturant is by the sea front and mostly open air. nice breeze in summer but can be a bit chilly in winters.reservation recommended for large group or for weekends as its always busy.

“Bestest Resturant in the Town”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Everything at its best from Ambiance till food, but obviously because of being a good restaurant it is busy as well so on few occasions you may have to wait to get your sitting arrangements sorted, so please book in advance or even if you have to wait i bet it is worth it..overall a great experience A++++++

“Simply Brilliant ”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Ambiance, quality food and service have earned kolachi a top name amongst the resturants of karachi. Its a keeper. Once a person eats at kolachi; no way he is going to any other resturant. In such a over competitive enviornment, its definately an achievement. cons include: its a bit expensive and sometimes have to wait for an hour just to get a table further accenuating my hunger.

“Great dining at sea”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

location is awesome ..... like a jetty ..... you are sitting over the sea .... can see a lot of fish n crabs around foundation boulders.
Foods is great so as the service.
Long queues, so book before going or keep extra time to wait.
Valet parking available.
One of the top-3 dine-outs of Karachi.

“Great food, great view”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Very busy place so book in advance (during weekends waiting time can run up to 2 hours NO JOKE!)

Right at the seafront, this very big place offers great food, served at good pace (no long waiting despite the size)
Very very tasty food!
Takes about 20-30 min taxi drive from city centre
Really recommend it.
