Fit for a King!


One of my favorite restaurants in Karachi is Lal Qila. Situated on main Shahrah-e-Faisal, it is modeled after the 16th century Shahi Qila in Lahore that was built by the Mughals. The restaurant serves scrumptious Pakistani cuisine, alongwith a number of Western dishes. While their food isn’t as oil-laden as the more famous Village restaurant at Seaview, the true fun of dining at Lal Qila is the ambience. Call me a romantic, but it actually seems like we’re dining in Mughal times and I often feel like I should be wearing a gharara and balancing a peacock on my arm.

During my last visit in Ramazan for their fantastic Iftari, the restaurant had a court jester of sorts, dressed in Mughal garb, go around narrating tales from Mughal history.

Find out more about the restaurant on their website.
