    YUMMMMY - MOST EXOTIC RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER BEEN TO
    Andaaz is located right across the road from the grand Badshahi Masjid
    Is owned by a USA trained chef - AMAZING AMAZING food
    Surprisingly refreshing - low on the ahhh so spicy chili- FLAVORFUL
    And the view and ambiance is to die for - guy has a collection of artifacts/ crafts aging back to the british raj
    A REAL TREAT - MUST EAT

  • Andaaz Restaurant: A Journey for the Food Lover

    by ghazanfarfarrukh Written Jun 5, 2009

    I recently went to this new restaurant called Andaaz
    Its located on the same road as Cuckoo's Den (i.e Fort Road)
    The view from Andaaz's rooftop of teh Badshahi Masjid and Lahore Fort is MUCH MUCH better then cucko's
    The bulding is cleaner, very nicely restored and is being run by a Chef. Yes this may be the only Chef owned restaurant in Lahore. Also teh onely that I know of that has all female staff 9yes female waitresses too)
    And the food Oh teh food is sooo good. The owner is a young chef with 10 years of ecperience and a degree in cooking from Florida USA. The cuisine is a combination of authentic and modern recipes.
    they do really make you feel like royalty. Do try it out on your next trip

    Favorite Dish: Malai Tikka one of the best I have had anywhere) Juicy, caramelized chunks of chicken grille din a Tandoor with rich flavors of cardamom and chili.
    Magaz Masala This has to be the best Brain masala in town
    Lassi
    Prathas and oh Dahi ki Kheer (Yoghurt Pudding)

    Great food, nice views

    Food is really delicious; additionally you will get double bonus (a) nice views of ancient Badshahi Mosque and Lahore Fort from the roof of the restaurant (b) if you are fan of art and history, then this place is a mini museum as well. Entrance to the restaurant is not inviting but once you are on the roof, then it's a totally new experience.

    Better book in advance especially on the weekends. I think it is not open during day time, last month on our visit to Lahore Fort, me and my friend decided to have our lunch there but it was closed.

    I went in March 07 with other artists from Wales and we were bowled over by the wonderful paintings throughout this extraordinary building.

    Favorite Dish: My friend Sameera chose all the dishes - she chose a huge selection and every one was fantastic. I've grown up on British curry house food - this was so different and so amazing.

    Cooco's Den - Inside: Cooco's Den

    Haveli  - Room

    In addition to being the owner of this establishment, the owner is also a renowned artist, who specialized in painting courtesans of this area (Diamond Market). The paintings depict the life of these courtesans, however the most haunting thing in these pictures is the sad eyes of all these girls.

    Cooco's Den: Cooco's Den

    Cooco's Den

    Set in the old Lahore's Diamond Market (Heera Mandi), Cocco's Den is an old Haveli converted into a resteraunt. The owner was born in this Haveli, some floors are still used as residential area, the ground-floor and the rooftop has been converted into a seating area.

    The ambiance is superb - next to Badshahi Masjid and Lahore Fort, serving local dishes.

    Advance booking is requried, and reserve tables in the front-corner for a great view. You climb a narrow staircase, almost 3 stories up, till you reach the terrace (Khota).

    Cooco's Cafe: Awesome food with amazing view

    by OMERKASHMIRI Updated Mar 3, 2006

    Cooco's cafe located right in mid of heera mandi (red light area). It gives u the best view of badshahi mosque and lahore fort . Especially at night when fort and mosque are litup with lights, it gives u amaing view. Food is served on the top of roof so make sure its not raining the day u visit.

    Favorite Dish: I found Handi gosht and kebabs very delicious, bit spicy for foriegners. You can smoke sheesha here as well (lots of arabs would love it) , lots of tourists come here to dine, so you will always find good security around here.

  • Coco's Cafe: Dont miss the nan's (bread)

    by saoirse2002 Written Oct 10, 2004

    As I recall the cafe was called Coco's Den. We sat on the roof as the sun was setting and after a hot afternoon of tramping around the Lahore Fort and the Old City, sitting down to the view of the mosque and evening light was great . Hot food was pulled up in baskets from the street below. Diyas (small lamps) were lit. What struck me most was the fact that this was Pakistan - a Muslim country. The cafe faced a mosque and everywhere around me were statues - Hindu, Christian, Buddhist. The food - piping hot and fresh - was delicious.
    The cafe is full of artifacts, paintings. Its really worth going to.

    Favorite Dish: The hot nan's and dal - basic food - was fingerlicking good!!!!
