What to see in Lahore - Food Street

Sunday, April 19, 2015

Inspired by Hubby's friend's beautiful night photos of the Badshahi Mosque, taken from a popular rooftop restaurant, we decided we want to admire the view too ;) So one evening we went to the New Food Street, located near the Lahore Fort.






 I'd probably like to visit in during the day too, but I loved it in the night - just look at all the lights and colours!








Fort View restaurant that we chose for our dinner.





Loved the little bits of decor on the way to the top floor!





Display of some traditional items outside of the restaurant.











Roshnai Gate - we didn't get to see all the gates of Lahore, hopefully next time ;)










Night view of the Badshahi Masjid




The restaurant itself wasn't bad, but didn't really overwhelm us. Rooftop seating is very popular, because of the view, and we had to wait a bit to get a table. When we got one, we weren't really satisfied, as we came specifically for the view, but we were told that the other empty one was already reserved. Luckily they managed to convince the staff that we'd be done with our meal before the party comes (it was actually plenty of time), and we had a great spot. Once we sat down, however, the lights went down in the whole area! But then, as you see, everything went back to normal and we enjoyed the view.

  6. Glad you managed to get a table after waiting all that time! I think I'd have been annoyed if we went somewhere with our heart set upon a certain spot and then not get it!
