Dinner at Movenpick ‘The Pakistani’

My niece turned 10 this year and we went to Movenpick hotel to celebrate her birthday. Usually we invite a few close family members and her friends on her birthday at home and create a theme and decorate the house according to it. A lot of thought and effort goes in it. This time my sister in law had been visiting us from USA and we thought it’d be a good change to go out somewhere.

Movenpick was my niece’s choice. We have always loved the ambiance. My husband and I, foodies through and through go where good food is but we do appreciate the aesthetic nuances and ambiance. The food at Movenpick was good, not the best we have had but if you throw in the live music and the mood set by the place, it was a good food day. It was definitely not value for money but this was not exactly a food excursion, just a family day.

So, we ordered chicken makhni, chicken karahi, fried lahori fish, lamb chops, brain masala, mughlai lamb boti, chicken tikka, palak paneer with naans and parathas. The serving size was small and the food tasted good. Spice levels were a little on the lower side but with guests from abroad, we appreciated it. The only thing I’d go back for are the parathas. They had suji in them and served hot they tasted amazing. While it’s a great place to take your guests but it’s not my go to place for desi food.

Don’t have food pictures because it would have looked weird telling our guests to stop and wait so that I can take pictures.
