What we don’t like

  • The restaurant can get very crowded during peak hours.
  • The wait times can be quite long on weekends.

There’s nothing quite like a good barbecue. The smoky, charred flavor of the meat, the freshness of the vegetables, and the zesty sauces all come together to create a truly unique and delicious dining experience. So what is it that makes barbecue so good? Is it the cooking method? The ingredients? The sauce? The answer is all of the above.

The intoxicating smell of barbecue is only half the reason to visit Bar. B.Q Tonight in Clifton’s Boating Basin – the other being that each meat is cooked perfectly over an open flame and served with a variety of delicious sauces. 

Chicken, beef, lamb… whatever your protein preference, this eatery has something for everyone looking for good old-fashioned barbecue flavor.

Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or a leisurely meal, Bar. B.Q Tonight is sure to satisfy your appetite. So next time you’re in the mood for some mouth-watering barbecue, be sure to check out this restaurant!

Food: Full-On Desi

The Beef Afghani Tikka was exceptionally tender and juicy, to the point where it melted in my mouth. The Chicken Reshmi Kabab was also very soft and full of flavor. 

The Royal Kabuli Pulao rice dish was so good because it was cooked with care and had the perfect blend of spices. It emitted a wonderful aroma. The add-ons made it even more delicious, with the addition of barberries, almonds, and pistachios. The result was a dish that was both flavorful and filling.

The royal treatment didn’t stop there though. 

The Chicken White Karahi was absolutely amazing! This too was an expertly cooked dish, with succulent meat that simply fell off the bone. Served in rich white gravy, this dish was hearty and filling, without being too heavy. 

The Garlic Naan bread was both crispy and flavorful. Lastly, the Paratha flatbread was flaky with a buttery taste that paired excellently with all the other dishes. To sum it up, it was an amazing meal that left me wanting more food once I finished what I had.

Price: Satisfaction Guaranteed

Disclaimer: The prices quoted below are subject to change. 

Extremely pleased with the price. It was affordable and the servings were generous. We were a group of 6. Our cumulative order was:

  • Beef Afghani Tikka: PKR 1200
  • Chicken Reshmi Kabab: PKR 950
  • Royal Kabuli Pulao: PKR 750
  • Chicken White Karahi: PKR 1600
  • Garlic Naan (6): PKR 50
  • Paratha (8): PKR 60

For some people, the prices might be a little higher than usual. But the overall quality of the food and customer service will more than make up for it.

Service: Customer-Centric

The staff were always happy to make recommendations and helped to choose the perfect dish depending on our appetite.

Ambiance: A Chit-Chat Cave

Bar. B.Q Tonight is the perfect place to enjoy a meal with family or friends.

The restaurant has a modern vibe and is always kept clean and tidy – something that’s important when it comes to food safety. The relaxed atmosphere and tasty food make it a great spot for a casual night out. 

However, Bar. B.Q Tonight is not as beautifully designed as other restaurants in the same price range. Overcrowding and long waiting lines are also major discomforts during peak hours and weekends.

Honorable Mentions: Can’t Go Wrong With Palak Paneer

The menu at Bar. B.Q Tonight features a variety of meaty dishes. There are also plenty of vegetarian options available, so everyone can find something to their taste. 

I, personally, would recommend the Palak Paneer. The spinach is delicious, and the paneer is nice and soft. The spices are also just right, not too overwhelming. Fan favorite for sure!

Chicken Handi is also a must-try. It is a dish that is made with chicken that has been marinated in a special blend of spices and then slow-cooked. The result is a dish that is packed full of flavor and is absolutely delicious. The chicken is tender and juicy, and the gravy is simply amazing. 

This dish is definitely one that you will want to try if you are looking for an incredible meal.

Final Verdict:

All in all, Bar. B.Q Tonight is a great spot for a casual night out with family or friends. The food is fantastic, and the price is extremely reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who’s looking for a good meal.
