Cafe Cafe recently opened its doors to the local restaurant scene. The much needed break of good food rather than an effort that would put the restaurant industry to shame. It has a decent interior and good food. Exactly what you need for decent place to dine at. Confirmed by our toughest reviewers heres what rasikh has to say:
Royal Caju Chicken
After hearing a lots…reading a lots… (not ur review dazling) and not taking the hint of ordering one what u ordered too dazzling (ehehhe)… well i landed the place with friend….it was ”ainwain” dinnner..well i reached the place..and prayed its good coz i have my bad shares with good places… so i entered the den the first impression was not good..as i entered and was on stairs…i saw that they had some old time stairs with cement missing and a little worn out kind of stuff.. but as i entered the place it totally changed my view, the place was chic , with nice decor, fancy lighting, comfy seating, friendly staff with a bar counter at far end…. i took a look at the menu and asked the attendant to guide whats their specialty and he pointed in bbq platter (paksitani style) as we all had enuff pakistani in eid days so i skipped that.i wanted something lesser spicy, tender …we ordered royal chicken… in the mean while a coke as starter ws ordered..hehehehe…well the coke was a turn down…it ws not chilled and i dont like having my drinks specially the carbonated ones with ice….well i got it replaced and the new one was cold..still not chilled…
we chatted and the food arrived…the presentation was impressive and the quantity seemed good…the crockery and cutlery was top notch, the chicken pieces were topped with jalapenos and if i m not forgetting with some cashews. …after taking the pics…and examining the meal.. i held my food fighting tools and made the first cut…i guess the chicken was with skin…i tried to find out..but this thought came to my mind when i ended the meal so was too late… any ways..the chicken was perfectly cooked and the knife made an easy cut.. i smeared it with more sauce and yummy it was.. the fries were crisp and awesome and i ate pretty much all of them… as i reached chicken in the middle portion and made cut it was stuffed with more jalapenos… i chewed slowly and ate the whole meal ina slow pace..i wanted to enjoy every bite of it…and surely i did..
the staff is pretty friendly with smiley faces and they know their menu pretty well, and if asked explain the dish to you creating a picture fo it.. ambiance pretty nice and they listen to you…
surely gonna hit this place again..and this time its gonna be the real test..the beef steak…
Keep it up guys..recommended full time without slightest of hesitation
When it comes to dining out in Lahore, everyone knows Zouk as one of the ‘Big Brothers’ of Restaurants in Lahore. Zouk has been serving some seriously great food for more than 15 years and gives you more than food – the experience. Over the years Zouk has converted many regular diners to ‘Zouksters’ and they keep coming back for more and more that this place has to offer. When you meet a Zoukster he would have one thing to claim
“You cant go wrong at Zouk”
Cafe Zouk has now offered its hand to the tossdown Diners community having the Khaba Privilege Cards. Now you get Complimentary Margaritas* at Zouk with your Card. This is a great way to show some love for the tossdown Khaba Card holders and we hope the foodies with the Khaba Card would love this ‘gesture’ by zouk.
Congrats to team Pakistan, we are in the Semis - Pakistan vs Sri Lanka on their home ground should be the toughest competition so far. With the likes of Hafeez and how well they played against Australia, we should be hopeful for a great game on Oct 04, 2012 at 7:00 pm local time.
ICC T20World Cup 2012 Sri Lanka
While this should be an adrenaline pumping match tossdown introduced a sections featuring Restaurants in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi that are screening the Match Live.
Another World Cup, another nail biter and not just another day for more than a billion people worldwide on Sunday 30th September. Its Pakistan vs India and just like every Pak-India cricket encounter this will be seriously, serious. In countries where cricket is next to religion, this is something to look forward to. But the catch here for the Pakistani Fans is that we have never won a game against india in a World Cup match, yes ironically.

Live Screening at Restaurants in Lahore, Islamabad & Karachi
However, there is one thing that is changing this time around and this is live screening of matches at various restaurants in lahore, karachi and islamabad. Although the trend has been there for a while now but this is becoming formal. Here are some of the places that are showing the matches live!
Chez Nur Launched Doodh Patti and answerd prayers of all lahori tea lovers
Chez Nur – Doodh Patti
Heres what OB has to say about the place before you visit:
“Zid Na Kar Sohniya – Mein Ap bara Ziddi Aan
This title fits ‘Raza’ quite well, the man behind Chez Nur’s ever changing interior and food because of his determination to bring variety to the local dining out scene. There is another reason I used this as the title – that when you visit the place. Chez Nur started off being the first french restaurant in Lahore and ever since there was no looking back. They have served us lahoris with great moroccon bbq, sheesha and now promise to bring one of the best local tea time. Yes its now going to be about samosas, gulag jamun and masala fries from now on instead of the Coffee and Cup cakes. First off the ambiance – contemporary lahori tea house interior, music: a fusion of everything from a sad ghazal, bibi sanam jana to hip hop. Now straight to Food: I was offered the mai baap of the menu – the platter with desserts that had almost everything off the menu. But first off is the doodh patti, so far thats the only tea I have tried from the array of tea types they are offering, one of which also included the ‘Karak Chai’. I hate the tea bag teas I think it was a way of giving us more torture and hurt to our culture – yes I am that sensitive about my Chai. The doodh patti was good very nicely done and I could taste the real tea, every sip of it That is also evident form the malai that is jam-ming on the top of the tea :p Now to the platter – it had Samosas, a kichori, lahori masala fish (very nice) and masala fries (super), chana chaat and potato kabobs. Everything was very nicely done except for the chaat, a bit dry I would say. The desserts included Gulab Jamun and Shahi Tukray – let me tell you these were the best shahi tukray I’ve ever had! I am glad finally we have a place like Islambad’s ‘Chai khana’ in Lahore. My first suggestion to them would introduce breakfast with their tea. Plzzz

Pad Thai @ The Noodle House
Eating the dish just recently at a place that does it best -The Noodle House, I feel I have gone a step higher as a foodie! I’ve been hearing about this new place in town, reading reviews on tossdown but never had the chance to go to the place. I was in a fix with mixed reviews – I just met 2 types of people who either love the place or don’t. So firstly I’d like to thank the generosity of The Noodle House management by inviting me over so I could give a try to their ‘Casual’ dining. Yes to my surprise contrary to what I had imagined of the place, its a hip place, casual dining, extremely courteous or in other words ‘cool’ staff that can help you order the right dish, explain it and also help you how to eat it the RIGHT WAY.
The chef came to the table gave me a couple of suggestions and because I had zero to none experience whatsoever at this place, he recommended the Pad Thai. Ive heard of this dish and have never tried so I immediately agreed.
Minutes later a nice plate filled with gorgeous noodles in its belly came to the table with assorted toppings – crushed peanuts, fried egg, red and green chillis. I poured some for me taking a prawn or 2 with the serving, topped it with red chilli and lemon, digger my fork into it and wrapped a bunch of noodles nicely around it. I pulled the fork towards my mouth, skeptical, but it was heaven when the flavours touched my taste buds. Gorgeous in taste just like it looked. It had depth, just like any asian cuisine there is an array of flavors unleashing on my palette – rich.
I recommend this place to any foodie incase they haven’t tried it ever or if they had Pad Thai from somewhere else, I can with all my experience say Noodle House does it one of the best!
Ramadan 2012 just announced in Saudi Arabia which means Peshawar will have it tomorrow and we in KLI i.e. Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad will have it the after Saturday 21st of July 2012 Inshallah.
So our folks will have to wait a day longer to munch on these iftar deals. Having said that the entire team sitting at tossdown is relieved in a way – THEY STILL HAVE A DAY to work and this time there is some additional work apart from the usual sehri iftar deal buffet deal updates from across Pakistan. This time its RES – The Table Reservation system by tossdown.
RES will be reserving iftar buffet at top places across Lahore (yes sadly its just lahore for the time being) keeping the starving Muslims at ease. RES will not only get you the right place on time but also will get your exclusive discounts at iftar buffets.
Fingers crossed – lets see how we pull this one out for you.
