We recently visited The Observatory, a modern Lahori Bistro perched on the 6th floor of The Fred Hotel. The moment we stepped in, the enchanting ambiance, captivating artwork, stylish furniture, and ambient lighting left us in awe. A haven for content creators and aesthetic enthusiasts alike!
The Observatory unfolds Lahore’s contemporary gastronomic tale, envisioning the future chapter in our city’s culinary odyssey. Their menu seamlessly blends indigenous creations—dishes rooted and nurtured in Lahore—with beloved favorites and dishes that have journeyed to Lahore, becoming our own over time.
We experimented with several items on the menu. The Brisket Bun Kebab and Chicken Thigh Sando were absolutely remarkable, with flavors hitting the mark, securing their place as our ultimate favorites.
We also sampled Chicken Parm, Pan-Seared Chicken, and Chicken Florentine. Regrettably, these dishes adhered to a rather standard profile, falling short of the anticipated Observatory twist we were hoping for.
SEAFOOD TAKA TAK, featuring finely chopped squid, prawn, crab, and sole served with puri-parathas, proved to be a delicious and innovative dish. We thoroughly enjoyed The Observatory’s unique take on the traditional Taka Tak.
Badam Berry cocktail turned out to be incredibly refreshing! A fancy title for an impressive mix featuring strawberry puree, almond syrup, lemon, and soda.
Despite our initial craving for the Shahi Cannoli dessert, its unavailability led us to opt for the Caked Alaska—a choice that left us eager for a return visit. The seamless combination of homemade vanilla ice cream nestled between layers of chocolate sponge, crowned with a decadent chocolate sauce, crafted a truly exquisite dessert, elevating our entire Observatory dining experience.
