restaurant review # 10 – binoria restaurant
its all very well to talk about eateries on zamzama and boat basin and other “high-end” places, but when you’re stuck on a factory visit in site area with only one hour for a lunch break, it gets tricky. binoria is the only half way decent eat out place in the whole of site area unless you choose to include kfc (which i don’t, but then thats another story). paradoxically, its not a case of the one eyed man being king in the kingdom of the blind. the food at binoria is actually quite good, the ambience is typically “desi restaurant” but neat, clean and airconditioned and the service is on the higher side of average.
while the menu boasts of a variety of “exquisite” afghan, pakistani, chinese, continental and fast food ranges, most of the regular patrons order the handis. and the handis are truly exquiste. the chicken chinioti handi in particular is to die for and the chef’s “specialty”, thai pepper chicken, is also highly recommended. apart from that, most of the food is very good considering the fact that the price range (per head) is in the rs. 150 – 300 range. of course, you can’t compare it with places like lal qila, nawab and barbecue tonight, but when you’re stuck at lunchtime in shershah – there’s no better place to go.
