The basic flow of your dining experience is fairly simple: you pick from either a Rs. 400, Rs. 500 or Rs. 600 platter, pay up front and get your token (yes a token!) and go in. From there, itâ€™s your call. You can pick and choose what youâ€™re in the mood for from the items that are part of your chosen deal and fill up your plate! This includes a main course, salad and dessert.
Everything on the menu looks appealing and hits close to home, with dishes that take you right into your own grandmotherâ€™s kitchen. The Handi, Palak Gosht, Shami Kababs, White Curry Chicken and Matar Palao are all done just right. For anyone who is a sucker for traditional desi, feel-good items â€“ this is the place for you. But it doesnâ€™t stop there. Like any meal, the desserts are the best part! Torn between the Kheer and Shahi Tukray, I tried both and have no regrets. All the menu items bring to the table what they promised â€“ a satisfying and authentic tasting home cooked meal well worth every penny.
The Food quality and interior are both up to par with the quality that has become synonymous with Sheikhâ€™s name. The communal cafeteria-style interior is a great new idea, and goes perfectly with the long display counter, as well as their visible kitchen and backend infrastructure. With the attention to hygiene and customer care, and the great value for your meal, Lahore Cafeteria is keeping things simple and making it work.
Lahore Cafeteria is a step towards reviving the glory days of the Mall Road, where FoodÂ was served in an effortless, clean atmosphere, with affordable prices and uncompromising quality. A straight forward concept with a fresh take, this new eatery has already established its name within Lahore and is a must visit to anyone who hasnâ€™t been, is looking for a hearty meal out on a budget, or who misses their schoolÂ days waiting in line for lunch.By: Anusha Bawany
