Most expensive Iftaar

Everyone talks about most economical iftaar dinners offered by restaurants around the town. But I am interested in the most expensive ones. A reader pointed out Copper Kettle costs around Rs. 550. Do you know any place that costs more? Let’s see who wins this one.

    Happened to be in Marquee at PC at iftar time yesterday. The Marquee is a covered pool hall. Price tag was Rs 625 + tax. Pitch in the 1 liter water bottle at Rs.200 and the whole dinner costs more than Rs.750. Not worth it since the food was nothing to write home about. Two words: Bland and Blander.

    Marriott last year was 625+ .. and not worth it.

    erm. im an avid Avari Sunday Bruncher, simply in love with their salad bar and sushi and whatevevr not.

    i have not tried their iftar but im told its the same thing priced at 625+tax. and yes: bring on the drinks additionally.

    but avari has never failed to disappoint me in terms of food (non desi only).

    Best post so far is from Shahid :) I wonder why people go out for iftar when it should be in-house, family sort of thing.


  12. Shahid (unregistered) on September 29th, 2006 @ 10:03 am

    Thank you Kashif. People don’t realize when loved ones are near. How presious moments are those spent with them. Last time we all sat together on iftaar back in 1992 :(

    i agree with shahid.. iftar with family has its own rewards :D

    Dahi baras from Fresco, BurnsRoad.

    Pizza hut is back and so are KFC and village, no updates on Lal Qilla and BBQ yet.

    IMHO Lal Qilla is best deal for moeny,
    we also had Hanif Rajput venturing into the iftar bufet thingy last year, but so far there have been no updates from HR this time.
