We are in the last week of Ramadan 2012 and it seems Ramadan is almost over. tossdown launched RES – Table Reservation System when Ramadan started and in the past 3 weeks it has served Hundreds of people in lahore to reserve their iftar at top restaurants in the city. Though tricky it maybe, but it was a risk well taken by our team to introduce a service right on the edge and hopefully in the coming months we see it becoming more acceptable by people reserving for Mother’s Day, Father’s day, birthdays etc.

While we are all hunting Ramadan Buffet Deals in Lahore and looking for a deal that is the best bang for your bucks we found a review for The Boulevard Bar and Grill Iftar Buffet by one of our Trusted reviewers dazzling_s
Following a planned and pending for long shopping trip with a friend, our last trip was Ensemble, (10Q). Looking at my watch i said to her its impossible to make it home for iftar so i rushed up to The boulevard grill and made a reservation on the comfy sofa for two and headed back downstairs to Ensemble. Coming back about half an hour later i found that the place was quite full with people. Anyways we were seated on our comfy sofas in the corner. The waiter brought us a bottle of mineral water, some dates and lemonade. Later he asked us to go for iftar, since there were ten minutes to go, i though that the food will get cold and God!! did i make a mistake? Within minutes there was a queue from one end of the buffet to the middle of the restaurant! Anyway, it took us ten minutes to reach the food finally, thats how slow the queue was moving! The Azaan was heard midway of the queue and a waiter offered us dates. Ok, now lets come to what i adorned my plate with, salad, a small sandwich, chicken strips with a dip, and a buffalo wing… The strips tasted very good (but were dry due to over heating in the dishes) and the dip complemented them very well, the sandwich was good, salad was excellent and the buffallo wing was amazing! About fifteen minutes later, they oenned the dinner dishes, the cream of aspargus soup was yummy, fried fish and lasagne were so-so, pasta was good, chicken tarragon was out of this world. The beef pepper steaks were also excellent considering they were made in such bulk and lying in the heated dishes for quite a bit, they were medium-rare, just how a steak is supposed to be and the beef was premium quality. There were few more dishes of which i only remember fish with vegetables, (Chinese style), egg fried rice and some pasta. Over all, it was a decent iftar come dinner with no scarcity of food (ATTENTION RASIKH) The total summed up to be 2990 for two iftars, one large mineral water and two cokes. Ohh my friend has a sweet tooth so she brought the deserts (while i was working on the second helping) and she said the the desserts were nothing special. so, i decided not to try them, being happy with my dinner already. Overall, i would give them 9/10 for managing a large scale iftar cum buffet very well but the service needs a lot of improvement, twice my knife and fork were taken away and were replaced after too long a wait. The waiter also forgot the we ordered cokes and they came when we were almost finished with our dinner. Moreover, while pouring the coke in the goblet, he spilled about quarter of it on the table and did not bother to apologize or make an endeavor to clean it. When i asked for tissues myself, he brought us a tissue box and placed it right over the coke he had spilled Nevertheless, this place is worth going to guys, a good variety of food with good taste to offer
