    Is it the place where they have got the COWBOY environment ?

  5. Faisal.K (faisalk) on May 1st, 2008 @ 12:53 am

    yep its gunsmoke .. where the waiters slam down the plates and act obnoxious cuz they think that is the rough cowboy way.

    Yes it GUN SMOKE DINER. As soon as you enter the eatery, you feel as though you are about to take an exciting journey through the wild wild west. Its authentic western décor and assertive staff, give it an edge over the others, not to mention its sumptuous, savory dishes.

    The dim lighting and huddled tables enhance the “cowboy feel” and truly bring forth the coziness of the ambience. Clean, shiny floors are also not representative of Gun Smoke; rather they are plagued with peanut shells.

    The waiters are in tune with the cowboy “ways” – smartly attired in cowboy hats and suits; they are not typical of the smiling, submissive, waiters you see at standard restaurants. They are instructed to be outright bold and rude! They slam cutlery on your tables. But that’s not all. Every so often, they pay a surprise visit to your table to empty the contents of your peanut bowls, by chucking the shells on the floor and banging the empty bowl back onto the table. A must see scenario!

    Gun Smoke is also fully operational in Lahore. Thumbs up to Kamran Sheikh, the man behind Gun smoke’s unusual décor! The restaurant is truly unique from others on the street

    Nadir, you don’t count as you were there :P

    MB, you got the basics down.

    faylasuf, Faisal, Shoaib, Adnan – dig a bit deeper. It is a very known place and I can bet 80% of you have visited or heard of this place.

    I can bet 80% of you have visited or heard of this place

  10. Afreen (afreen) on May 2nd, 2008 @ 1:02 pm

    Adnan, I’m still waiting for the name of the place.

  11. faylasuf on May 2nd, 2008 @ 1:18 pm

    @ Shoaib,

    well things hav changed, they dont slam bang or empty the bowl, and yes they do smile !

    @ afreen

    that wz my first and last guess, cant relate the "shoot" thing to any other place that i frequent.

  12. shoaib on May 3rd, 2008 @ 12:51 pm

  14. shoaib on May 4th, 2008 @ 4:34 pm

    Well then the next wierd restaurant would be TGI Fridays. It is wierd in all terms, FOOD plus decor. Thats what Americans are proud off.

  15. seskey on May 5th, 2008 @ 1:19 pm

    is that TGIF still operational in Karachi?

    wherelse is cowboy environment other then Gunsmoke guide us please

  16. Afreen (afreen) on May 5th, 2008 @ 1:52 pm

    I regret now that why I didn’t put this in WIK.
    Anyway, this is Copper Kettle, Gulshan, located just after Stadium.

    They do have a cowboy theme; however, not that successful like Gunsmoke.

  17. shoaib on May 5th, 2008 @ 2:04 pm


    Shukria mam, it just kept us confued for so many days
    Yes TGI is not more in Pakistan. They had to close it, we dont need to have those taste less and weird restaurats. Business Decision i guess.

  18. itstabish on May 10th, 2008 @ 1:52 pm

    okay i read a lot of the comments and we must be effing blind to not be able to read the italics which say "not gunsmoke"

    having said that, my take on it is the new Don Corleone restaurant or something.
