When one normally thinks of local cuisine one thinks of roadside barbeque or karhai, as delectable for their spices as for the smog and dust that give them their unique flavour. The last place one would think of is a five star hotel to partake of desi cuisine that reeks of hygiene and clealiness. But that said, Pakistani should be on one's list of eateries to which one takes visitors from abroad, be they foreigners or expats. The food will not leave their stomachs queasy, and the ambience is pleasing to say the least. The service, wrapped in cultural quaintness, with the waiter standing over you with a towel and wash basin to prep you for dinner, and the gift of a fresh flowers bangle, adds a compelling touch,. The icing on the cake is complimentary paan served as you exit the restaurant. And the live music is irresistable as well.

Came here with my partner and we were super impressed by the ambiance & design of the place. The night we arrived they had live music. The menu is extensive with fabulous paskistani food that is cooked in an open kitchen. The tandoori breads are freshly made (amazing) we had the fish & a biryani both were outstanding. For a biryani, fish dish, potato parata & drinks we paid only $25 in total such a great price for a hotel restaurant.

Pakistani has been a favourite for years. The taste and service hasn't changed at all. The food especially their seafood is always fresh and of the highest quality. We are also a fan of their paratas, I haven't found such a variety else where. Our server Mr.Pervaiz offers us such impeccable service and his quantity recommendation is always spot on. He is your man there. Thank you for always making all our occasions wonderful especially with all the live music dedications. Its always a pleasure visiting Pakistani.

Usually food at 5 star resturants is mostly mechanical.But Pakistani at movenpick hotel,Karachi is a place parexcellence for traditional Pakistani food in terms of freshness, cleanliness, hygiene, quality, efficiency and taste. A very efficient & corteous Manager Mr Adil Hussain and his subordinates Mr Pervaiz & Talib take care of all your needs on priority. I love this place & recommend it to people in karachi & visiting the city.

Despite arriving shortly after opening time, and the restaurant being very quiet at that time, the service was a little slow. On this occasion that was fine as the delays gave friends and opportunity to catch up. When food arrived it was very good. The meats and breads were cooked very well. Desert took a while to be served and as was the chai. As a group of friends chatting, we felt the live music was a little loud, however this was more of a personal perference. Overall, good food, however service was a little slow.

It is an international standard hotel with good security. Their food quality is good and international standard rooms. This hotel situated at the heart of the city and a very important place for business travellers, near to the city business hub.

If I could give a lower rating I would. We ordered the grill platter which included mutton chops, grilled fish, grilled prawns, chicken boti and chicken seekh. Everything was COLD! It was supposed to come off the grill and it was AS IF ITS BEEN SITTING IN A CHAFING DISH. The chops were tough and had a bad meaty smell and taste. The chicken boti was under cooked, the prawns and fish were tough and had the gross fishy smell that fresh seafood SHOULD NOT have. We didnt try the seekhs becuz they were the last item to try and we were not going to bother. We just wanted to get out of there. The waiter filled water in a dirty cup then when I addressed him he proceeds to say, its the cup design so I dipped my finger and pulled out a piece of food and he rudely replaced the cup. When the main server that seated us came to our table because we asked for the check within 20 min of us getting there, we told him our experience and he didn't say a word and literally rushed almost ran off. So being seated and finishing our meal of which I only ate the tomatoes and cucumbers in their entirety because the meat I only tasted. My husband ate what he could force since he spent 6000 rs on this crappy meal. DO NOT EVER EAT HERE. GO TO KOLACHI. and if you're a guest, don't eat here. The floors were so dirty, the furniture smelled musty. The waiters smelled of body odor. It was dark, dingy, dusty and disgusting. Just go out or choose a club sandwich from fanoos if youre really hungry. These movenpick restaurants are making the movenpick brand look so bad.
