What we don’t like

  • The price per person for the buffet is a bit steep.

Ladies and Gentlemen, what’s the best buffet you’ve had?

Step right up and grab a plate because I have just returned from a buffet adventure at Asia Live at Avari Towers, and boy, oh boy, did my taste buds have a party! 

I arrived at the buffet spread with my plate and forks ready and my stomach grumbling like a bear waking up from a long winter nap. But let me tell you; it didn’t grumble for long. That’s a testament to the culinary prowess of Asia Live.

So, buckle up, and let’s dive right into my review.

Taste: What a Wonderful Spread!

I must admit, I arrived at Asia Live with a healthy appetite, and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. The buffet spread was like a culinary treasure trove, with countless dishes.

I started my journey with a heaping helping of the Chilled Mango Salad, and oh my, was it a tropical explosion of flavors! The sweetness of the mangoes danced beautifully with the tangy dressing and the crunch of the nuts.

I then spooned myself a heaping serving of the Creamy Tomato Soup that made me feel warm and cozy. Next, I moved on to the sushi station, where I indulged in a selection of Maki Rolls, each one more delicious than the last. The savory Samosas also appeared on my plate; I must say, they were quite the flaky pastry puff!

I went to the live cooking stations, watching in awe as the chefs flipped, stirred, and sautéed their way to culinary greatness. The plate of Tandoori Chicken was sizzling hot and packed with spices that made my taste buds dance happily. 

I also tried the Creamy Butter Chicken, which was so rich and velvety that I felt like I was in heaven. And let’s not forget the lamb biryani, a flavor fiesta that had me going back for seconds.

But, the undisputed star of the buffet was the dessert station. I ate every sweet treat, from the creamy Mango Panna Cotta to the flaky, golden-brown Gulab Jamun. My favorite was the warm, gooey Chocolate Lava Cake that melted in my mouth like a dream.

Price: A Bit Steep

On a scale of 1 to 10, the taste was an 11. But I felt short-shifted regarding the price per person: PKR 2400. That’s too much for an ordinary person to have a one-time buffet.

Service: Good, but Room for Improvement

The Lunch Buffet timings are:

  • Monday to Saturday
  • 12:30 – 03:30

The service staff was polite and helpful. The servers ensured my glass of water was always full and cleared away my empty plates with a smile. However, there were minor issues: the line at the serving table was long, and I had to ask multiple times for the ketchup bottle.

However, on the positive side, every dish was expertly crafted and beautifully presented, and I left feeling full, satisfied, and smiling. A round of applause for the chefs, who definitely deserve praise.! 

My only regret is that I couldn’t try everything, so I must return for more!

Ambience: A View to Write Home About

Asia Live is a beautiful restaurant with Mughal-inspired decor and plenty of natural light. The views of the poolside and lush tropical gardens make it an ideal spot for a leisurely lunch or dinner.

The seating area is spacious and comfortable, so you don’t have to worry about cramped tables. 

Honorable Mentions: Friday Steak Nights

I must give a special shout-out to Asia Live’s Friday Steak Night. For PKR 1999 plus tax, you can fill up on juicy steaks from 7:30-11:00 pm. 

The presentation is beautiful, and the taste is divine!
