Taste: From the Butcher’s Hook
The Melt has covered your taste buds from the first bite of their juicy burgers to the last lick of their creamy milkshakes.
Oh boy! I cannot express my love for the Chick N’ Prison! Let me tell you, these freshly stripped chicken strips and al dente noodles pack a mild spice punch and a touch of garlic flavor that will make your mouth water with every bite.
The cherry on top? You can customize with three mouth-watering sauces – classic BBQ, tangy Honey Mustard, or creamy Classic Cream.
Voila! A perfect appetizer!
Now, onto the burgers! The star of the show is the Monster Melt Burger! It’s not just any ordinary burger; oh no, it’s one of the best ones in town!
It’s a giant triple beef burger drenched in melted cheese, topped with a juicy turkey strip, and smothered in a spicy hot sauce that will have your taste buds exploding with flavor.
And let’s talk about the size of this burger. It is gigantic – perfect for those with big appetites! The Monster Melt Burger is a meal that you won’t soon forget.
Price: Good Value-For-Money
The Melt isn’t the cheapest fast-food joint but worth the price.
- Chick N’ Prison (6 pieces): PKR 569
- The Monster Melt Burger: PKR 699 (without any drinks or add-ons)
For those prices, you get quality food made with the freshest ingredients leaving you satisfied and happy.
Service: Feeling Lucky?
Once you walk through the door, their team of courteous and helpful staff will ensure that your dining experience is remarkable. The effort put into each aspect of the restaurant business is evident!
Even the manager was always on hand, answering each question respectfully and checking to see that all customer needs were met promptly and with the utmost care. He even suggested a fantastic dish like their Monster Melt Burger that’s totally deserving of the praise!
Ambience: Not too Spacious
The Melt isn’t the fanciest joint in town. It’s small, so it can get quite cramped when many people are around.
However, don’t let that put you off because the atmosphere is still pleasant enough for families to enjoy a meal together.
Honorable Mentions: Let-us Rice
Hold the phone, folks!
Did you know The Melt doesn’t just serve melted sandwiches and burgers? That’s right; they also offer delicious and satisfying rice bowls!
