“ridiculously overrated”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I haven't seen such an overrated restaurant on tripadvisor.
Nothing but an average place with average taste and service. Obviously view is scenic but again there are 20 odd other restaurant around offer the same view.
ratings here for Kolachi is simply ridiculous.

“Can stand with any top restaurant in the world”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Have been to kolachi almost 50 times
Reason very simple:Excellent service
Top quality food
Even the yogurt n the chatni are made with mineral water

The owners Mr faizan n owais there to give you special attention all the time
Head chef Mr noor will always listen to you n guide you

If you have any complaints always ready to change food or even cancel it or even compensate you
View is very good
Most expensive restaurant in the same line but still over booked
Why you better go there n see why
I simply love it

“Amazing ambience, excellent service but average food”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

The average quality food (I have had better seekh kabaabs and braon masaalaa) and the distance from even Teen Talwar at Clifton means I will not be going there again. If I need to eat good BBQ food near the sea, Ghaffar Kabab at Port Grand is a far better option.

“One of the best dining experiences during this trip!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We were lucky to get one of the best tables on the third level, overlooking the see and the two levels below. Magical!

Great food, served wrapped to keep warm. Excellent attention to detail with the cutlery, sauces, presentation!

Highly personalized service despite the fully packed place. The waiter would come to check if everything was ok!

The manager came at the end to ask if everything was ok. Loved his question, "even if there is the smallest of issues please let me know." Then I told him...

Restaurant not accepting credit cards is usually a big issue for me, but at Kolachi, it was a very small issue due to their excellent good, great service and magical view! Want to go back soon.

“good but very over rated”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

the only words which can define my experience are defines "OVER-RATED", average service and average food, nothing to drive that far away and have food which would be easily available anywhere else in Karachi.
