Best Restaurants in Lahore Gulberg With Unique Food Options

Best restaurants in Lahore Gulberg

There are too many restaurants and grocery chains in Lahore. Would you like unique dining options that you haven’t tried before? In this article, I will share some of the Best Restaurants in Lahore Gulberg that I have tried since arriving in Lahore in 2014. I will also share some food choices from my inter-city travel. I hope you will try one of these options if you haven’t already tried them. So here is my list of the Best Restaurants in Lahore Gulberg.

1- Thalal by Al-Minal

It is the largest valley in Lahore. In addition to the crowd, it is served with a delicious leg of lamb, different types of grill, lots of rice, and two types of sauces (white and red). First, we were made aware of this by a friend and initially, we went with 6 people and ordered a that for 6. The quantity was so large that 6 of us together could not fully consume it. So we packed up the rest of the lot. Surprisingly we still couldn’t eat it all. Eventually, we went with 8 people and ordered that for 8, and again there was a lot of packing. The only thing not enough for 8 is the lamb shank. So be wise to divide it evenly among yourselves.


Hareesa is your breakfast food. For someone like me who wakes up at noon, getting Hareesa might be a challenge. Because if you want to enjoy Hareesa, you have to be there early in the morning. We were five friends who planned this delicious meal but only three of us made it. Hareesa is a bit like Haleem or Saleem (after Aftab Iqbal) but tastes very different. There are two main suppliers of Hareesa. One is Amritsari and the other is Kashmir. The former is the most famous but honestly, we liked the Kashmiri Hareesa in terms of taste, quality, and cleanliness. Finally, enjoy the pictures.

3- BYOB – Outpost

If you are a true burger lover and happen to be in Lahore, BYOB-Outpost should be your next foodie stop on the list of Best Restaurants in Lahore Gulberg. They also opened another branch in Gulberg, but to experience true BYOB you have to visit their DHA branch. The following photos will speak for themselves.

4- Howdy

Well, everyone knows this company. Howdy peaked in popularity when PTI President Imran Khan visited one of their franchises. I’ll rate this burger number two for taste and ambiance and yes, number one is for BYOB.

5- At Nando’s

Nando’s is another Best Restaurants in Lahore Gulberg I visit very often. Although peri is their specialty, there are other menu items to try as well. Finally, a few more images that might become a reason for your Peri adventure, if you haven’t tried it yet.


Although the best Shanwari taste I had was in Karachi on Rashid Minhas Road, this Shinwari was also up to date. Located in the city of Johar, Shanwari is undoubtedly one of the Best Restaurants in Lahore Gulberg to enjoy Peshwari food.


As ainda is not available in any restaurant in Lahore, we traveled to Peshawar to enjoy this unique and wonderful meal. This is local Banu food, we had a friend who belongs to Banu but his family lived in Peshawar. So we decided to be his guests and enjoy this delicious article.

8- Mandi lamb from Bait-ul-Mandi

Bait-ul-Mandi is perhaps the only Best Restaurants in Lahore Gulberg whose recipe comes very close to the real Mandi you’ll find in the Gulf. Rice and lamb with sauces, especially tomato sauce, put Mandi in my best and only Lahore dining choice.
