Cafe Zouk, Khayaban-e-Shamsheer, Defence

Cafe Zouk is a bit on the pricey side, as you can see from this menu card.

Complimentary starter: salsa and tortilla chips.

Fish and chips

Crispy Fried Chicken strips

Chicken Cannelloni - superb in taste and quantity!

Fresh Lime

Overall verdict: A bit on the steep side i.e. it is a pricy place, but the quality of food and portion size is worth writing home about. Everything, from the crispiness of the fries, fish and chicken, to the freshness of the cole slaw and rosemary leaf, was highly satisfactory.

    Excellent blog post and photos as usual.

    For a place of Zouk's stature, it seems surprising that the tortilla chips it makes look like the papri we sprinkle over chats and the salsa, instead of being the thick chunky variety, somehow resembles the diluted imli ka pani used for gol gappas/pani puris. That said, even if the food is not the most authentic, if it tastes good, as you wrote the food at Cafe Zouk certainly did, then that is what really matters.

    1. i totally agree with you.i have noticed frm my 5 yrs experience in Pakistan that most of the restaurants which call themselves "high dining" places, are just ripping off people!!!

  2. i heard their steaks were good. is it true? does it fill you up?

  3. How was ur. Experience??
    What about the price ???
    Are high or affordable???

  4. What proof is there for food being halal here?
