Biryani of the Seas - BOTS - is a new addition to Karachi's food scene which had made quite a buzz recently.
The eatery mainly serves local varieties of seafood along with a vast range of other items ranging from Chinese and Thai food, BBQ, chicken varieties, etc.
The flagship item of BOTS is biryani - spicy and colorful rice popular in Pakistan and India. Traditionally, biryani is made with meat or chicken, however, BOTS specialty is the seafood variety, both fish biryani and prawn biryani.
In our first visit we found the quality of food and taste awesome while ambiance was just fine. The place is conveniently located in Clifton, in a relatively secure vicinity, and easy to reach from own transportation.
I have posted the full review on my travel blog: Restaurant Review: Biryani of the Seas
Favorite Dish: At BOTS, I would mainly go for desi seafood; prawn/fish biryani, Dhaka fried fish, and fish fillet. To compliment this, Masala Dosa and Chicken Garlic Mayo Role are also good options. Next time, I plan to try the Goan Fish Curry - out of curiosity.

Bokhari Bhai as I am a pure Karachite I have one 30 bore TT(China 66), one 9mm (Taurus)and one 12 bore repeater (Turkey Akkar) for safety as you know about the condition here well it's my hobby too. Talking about the quails and batair birds as you have noticed they are served in the buffet dinner of many restaurants like Lal Qila, Shan e Mughalia and Chandni at PC etc and people are attracted towards them but I think it's cruelty to kill these bird for food as they hardly have any meat in them.
1, LAL QILA,
A restaurant depicting the legendary grandeur of splendid and noble past. A vivid and conspicuous realization of the glory of our brilliant esthetical essence. All the way a combination and innovation. Adorned with courtesy of mughlai era we offer you to dine out authentic Mughlai , Tandori , Live Bar-B-Que & Traditional Pakistani cuisine
Dining Areas of LalQila
Open To Sky:
Just outside the exit of the Play Area starts it's compound with a flowing river as there flows river Hamna in the Red Fort Delhi. It's sparkling atmosphere is filled with natural melodious sound of two waterfalls springing fountain & the sound effects of the flowing river.
Mughlai hall has a Jharoka (lattice) in its outer view. Its inner position gives you a true marvelous depiction of Mughlai Artistry. Decorated with real items of Mughlai era it takes you back to the 17th century.
Bara - Dari:
The most elevated sitting place in front of here you can relish the spell bounding view of LalQila.
Dewan - e- Khas:
After Exit from Mughlai Hall the place reserved for parties that stimulates you with the Amazement of the Fort Night.
Originating from cascade, River incarnates an unbelievable scenario, which leaves every one astonished as there flows River Hamna in the Red Fort.
Favorite Dish: 2, Shan-e-Mughlia,
Shan-e-Mughlia is Pakistan’s leading buffet restaurant. Shan-e-Mughlia Restaurant Karachi offers an amazing buffet and has been regarded as the biggest buffet in Asia. It is located just adjacent to the Millennium Mall at the end of the National Stadium Road on the same location where the old Drive-in cinema used to be. Shan E Mughlia Restaurant included at least 92+ menus which mostly includes Pakistani, Chinese, Continental, Italian and even Indian dishes too. In Ramadan mostly at Iftar time, the place gets too crowed. Dishes which are served for Iftari are Rolls, Samosa, Dai Badia and much more. One can like the buffet in a grand environment in an attractive garden-like airy field distinguished by gravel paths for separate sitting arrangements.
3, CHANDNI RESTURANT AT PC KARACHI,
The restaurant offers a very spacious yet highly sophisticated interior with an antique finish of bygone era. Traditional artwork elegantly drapes the walls, and the atmosphere as a whole does indeed satisfy the yearnings of a mind bent toward whimsical creativity. Our Chefs at Chandni are the creative force behind capturing the exotic flavors, robust aromas of evocative Asian and International favourites.
Lunch 1200hrs - 1500hrs
Dinner 1900hrs - 2300hrs

I was thinking that I should not write about Pizza Hut, because it is a global chain & everyone knows about it. But then I realized that specially developed recipes, which they offer in Pakistan, will not be available in other countries. So Travelers interested in Pakistani food should also try Pakistani Pizza.
Their Chicken & Beef Pizza's with Pakistan Spices & Recipe are very tasty and mouth watering. I regularly taste their delicious Pizza every once in a month or two. I love:
Behari Chicken Pizza
Chicken Tikka Pizza
In Starter BBQ Chicken Spin Rolls & Behari Chicken Spin Rolls are nice.
Recently they have introduced Arabic recipe Pizza like:
Pizza was originated in Greece. It is one of the oldest foods. An early type of Pizza was present in Roman age. Modern pizza (with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese) was originated in Italy about 125 years ago. In 20th Cintury the dish has become globally popular mainly due to Italian Immigrants, who brought it to America & many other parts of the world.
In Pakistan it was introduced in late 1980's. Now Pizza Hut has more than 20 outlets in Karachi & 20 Plus Outlets in Other major Cities of Pakistan. In the regions where pizza is known, spicy chicken and sausage-based pizzas are very popular, as they cater to the local palate.
Favorite Dish: Fajita Cicilan Pizza
Behari Chicken Pizza
BBQ Chicken Spin Rolls
