But, the fish from these eateries are so good that once you have them, they might make you change your culinary preferences! So here are some good places to eat at and the dishes that are liked.
This small setup in DHA phase Ext 2 has now extended to dine in. Its specialty is grilled seafood. Its Fish Koyla Karahi is dubbed to be the first one of its kind in Karachi. Fit for spice lovers, it brings the best of curry and fish together in one dish.
Chacha Jee Khaas
Chacha Jee Khaas is known for its famous Fish Tikkas. Soft and succulent, retaining the moist taste of fish, it has the faint tikka smell which is so much associated with ‘kolya ka dum’. Served with tamarind sauce and garlic naan, it would be one of your newly found fish favorites!
