Restaurant review #5: Toso Snack Bar

This all-in-one restaurant located in Bahadurabad serves everything from Soups to Steaks to Bar-B-Q. Since it is located on the other side of the bridge, the prices and environment might not be up to the standards of the elite, but the food is as good as any place in Clifton, if not better.

I really don’t know what else to say about Toso other than it is the place to eat if you want to eat out and don’t want to spend a whole lot of money. I went there with my family of four, ordered chicken shashlik, finger fish, chicken steak, and chicken tikkas. We also had ice cream for desert. Everything cost us only Rs. 1000. We left the place satisfied in every aspect.

I really liked the place because of its price value. There are times when you don’t feel like cooking at home, or cooking is not possible due to any reason, and you don’t want to break the bank by eating out at an expensive restaurant. These are the times when places like Toso Snack Bar are ideal to visit.

    Tooso has a management change few years back. Now they have female staff as well. Prices are bit high for me. Neverthless, its one of the best resturants in Bahadurabad.

    Also just in case you guys didnt know it is definitely one of the oldest restaurants in that area. I used to live in that neighborhood about 25yrs ago and it was pretty established even then. They must be doing something right to have stuck it out that long. Go Tooso! brings back memories!

    i would just like to say one thing the roads at that place is a total mess so unless you drive a tractor don’t head for that direction.. …

    Firstly, Its TOOSO.
    Umer: Please stop mentioning about ‘elites’ man. I dont understand why the mentioning of ‘elites’ was important here, like are they the only group of people in Karachi?? Anyways..

    I have been going to Tooso for as long as I can remember. They have re-done their restaurant, but I liked their old look and structure better. Tooso had one of the best Chicken Tikkas and their speciality was their ‘Chutni’ .. They have changed their ways but their Tikka is still really good, but its silly to serve chutni in those sucky ‘squeeze-me’ containers.

    One of my favourites at Tooso has always been their ‘Falooda’ .. Yes, Tooso has one of the best Faloodas that I have had anywhere in Pakistan. For some of you, it might be too much, but its really good *there have been occassions when one of the fruits wasnt fresh and the Falooda tasted crap* ..

    If you do not have a problem with ‘Fakeers’ *beggars* then you must sit outside Tooso Restaurant on the benches..

    All in all, its one of my favorite Tikka Places in Karachi.

    It has the best Faloodas….and it is supposedly hygenic, no water added!!!!


  12. Kaash (unregistered) on September 20th, 2006 @ 1:46 am

    I used to love their famous FALUUDA…I don’t know how good it is now?
    Is it still yummy Guys?
    peace

    I agree with IllusionFS about the elite comment and also would like to add the writers to stop the “other side of the bridge” ref.

    For someone who was asking for the location, it is located very near to Bahadurabad Chowrangi, next to Metropolitan Bank. As has been mentioned already that the condition of the roads is a mess right now cuz of all the “development” work, so I suggest whoever wanna go and try it out, wait a little while.

    THUMBS UP FOR TOSO
    I’ve ben looking at this place since my child hood…Its a friendly place, affordable once a week…But i would like to suggest if it would upgrade itself with Kabab rolls like Red Apple and Hot & Spicy. Trust me then I dont need to go to any Khaddah market for rolls
