Had a great evening at Bhaati Gate last week! This restaurant has been around in Centaurus for a while but surprisingly I never tried it, until that day when we really wanted to sit outside on the terrace, and Bhaati Gate's exterior seemed attractive all of a sudden.
Gotta appreciate the decor first, such a great effort at giving it a proper Desi look! The gate is decorated with pictures from all around Pakistan, there's a #chaat and #paan corner as soon as you enter. They have a cute little rikshaw in which you can sit and have food, as well as a #charpaai out on the terrace where you can relax.
Acha so, there's no #biryani on the menu. What kind of Desi restaurant doesn't serve biryani?!? Yeah that's exactly what I thought, so I asked the server and was told to my relief that biryani is indeed available. They just don't write it on the menu because the biryani chef comes only 3-4 days a week, not everyday. Phew! So, I had biryani, which was all right. It had a lot of #condiments and aalu bukharay and what not, which I had to dig throufh but otherwise, it was all right. Not the best but bas guzaara okayish. .
We also ordered a #thaali which had #chicken handi, #aalu ki #bhujia , #daal , #haleem , 2 #seekh kababs, raita and 2 naan. Everything was #delicious . And it was only for about 500 something. Great for it's price! .
All in all, you should visit if you are craving Desi food and a good view because Centaurus's terrace never fails to give you a good experience (ambience wise), and Bhaati Gate serves all things Desi, ranging from gol gappas to haleem to #kulfi and #gulab jamun! Which are really good by the way. Pay them a visit and let me know what you think! :D

Food was so expensive .
Poor taste .
Beef Nalli Nihari - ☆☆☆☆☆ This little steel bowl of happiness for two comes with one of the best Nihari I have tasted in Islamabad, with good amount of soft, tendered beef and a small piece of shank (nalli), balanced spices and very less oil on the surface; Highly Recommended with plain naan, for a hearty meal at @centaurusmallofficial -
For PKR 490 @ Bhaati Gate, 3rd Floor, @centaurusmallofficial
P.S The ambience of this little restaurant is amazing, plus the staff is also very courteous, and comes with a very wide variety of desi and Chinese appetizers, meals, along with an an all-day breakfast facility.
Bhaati Gate is not just the tastiest food in city, it is the most scenic & best fun place in the city. For us food is fun & entertainment.
