Khan Restaurant aka Taj Hotel: The Most Authentic Lunch in Town
Khan Restaurant (know as Taj Hotel which the Restuarant is a part of) is famous among locals for its quality and authentic food. The hotel is located at Nawan Shahar (New City) traffic signal and very easy to find with either by a rikshaw or your own transport. The ambience is good keeping in view the fact that this is a sort of road side restaurant and not for people looking for luxuary. However, there are split air-conditioners to beat the scrotching Multani heat and the waiters wear unfirom and are attentive.
Its home like food differentiates it from its competition but be there early, especially for lunch, as they close around 3-4 pm for lunch. It is likely that you will not find an empty table overthere, no reservations, but you can either wait in the outside couches or share a table with someone, which is quite a norm especially if the table is of more than 4 people and you find 2 or 3 people on that table.
Favorite Dish: We were recommended Mutton Joint by the waiter and we did not regret. For mutton lovers like me that was a treat. The dish is actually made up of mutton joints in a thick balck-pepper curry and is not spicy in nature. The dish resembles to Paya and Nehari, the famous local dishes, but the taste is quite different and authentic.
