After much pondering and deliberation a friend and myself, decided to investigate this bastion of oceanic cuisine. Having been bombarded with advertising about the freshness of the various varieties of sea food. One felt it curious what all the fuss was about.
Situated in phase 2, defense, karachi. The entrance contained a fish market annexe, filled with fish tanks and a fish display on ice. We took this as a positive omen. The fish at least would be fresh! We were seated in the basement, which seem to have blue lighting for some reason , not the best set up for underground establishment. However, the icing on the cake were the casio keyboards being played by the, what can be described as hobby musician. Off course, the wall mounted plasma tv was simply lovely!!
Menu arrived in a wonderful shaadi album garb. We ordered, jumbo sesame prawns and prawn rolls. Unfortunately the rolls were soggy. As a main course, Rock lobster thermidor, ( one of the few places in town, selling rock lobster, so I was particularly looking forward to it), crab fried rice and steamed grouper in Soya sauce. The food was presented well, however, the lobster contained tinned mushrooms as opposed to fresh, surprising as we’re in the middle of mushroom season, this was rather puzzling.
The cheese was rather low quality, causing it to become reminiscent of something you scrape of your shoe. Fried rice, soggy and over peppered, also contained low quality Soya sauce. Fish was a complete disaster, as it has gone off, the stench was almost unbearable. Once again a narrowly avoided food poisoning! In conclusion, an experience not to be repeated.
