Veranda Bistro is an upscale bistro in one of Gulberg’s quieter streets. On Sir Syed Road, just down from the corner with College Road, Verandah serves up a delicious Mediterranean-inspired buffet with à la carte options as well.

The buffet, though pricey for Lahore, is still the best value however – with tasty starters such as Italian vegetable soup, crusty fresh bread and potato salad, mains like baked chicken breast, roast beef in gravy and lasagne, and a can’t-resist dessert platter with black forest mousse, tiramisu and mango cheesecake.

There’s a couple of Asian options too, like Thai-style stir fried fish and a spicy Singapore Noodles dish. The buffet menu rotes and changes with the season, so there’s always something new on offer. On the down side, if you got hooked on a particular favourite last visit, you might not find it this time – the price of variety, and variety is the spice of life!

The service is sleek and friendly, but not intrusive; the clientele are as classy as you would expect from such an establishment. The rooms are tastefully and understatedly decorated in a faux-European, home kitchen style which is homely enough to settle right into.

Overall, Veranda Bistro is an outstanding addition to Lahore’s upmarket dining scene. Come prepared with a full wallet and an empty stomach – this is one place to remember and love!

      Yes, it’s great! You’ll need to go when you’re in Lahore! (although that would cost about half the $25/day budget!)
