Roasters has been around for a while now and though it has never been my favourite joint, primarily because I have always found its service slow, I have never had reason to complain about its food -- until my last visit this month. The deterioration in its food quality was shocking -- the food was largely cold and tasteless --... More

We wanted to crave our desire for fried food. Cheese sticks did not have herbs as advertised. Toppings were prepared and powdery. Everything was fried in the same dipping batter making the experience quite boring. Not looking forward to next visit. Pros: The staff was quite efficient and friendly. One of them even tried to warn us not to order... More

First the good: Pleasant and feel good space and a restaurant that is high on courtesy and attentive service. The staff goes out of its way to assist. Cannot say the same for the food. The food is largely gourmet fast food (burgers and wraps), but also steaks. The burgers and sandwiches were ordinary. I suspect (but do not know)... More

Friendly and attentive (but forgot our drinks) staff, but not all understand English. An upscale-ish restaurant should have English speakers as wait staff; after all, the entire menu is in English. Next, skip the steak. This is a burger joint first, everything else is mediocre. The burgers are huge and delicious; albeit calorie-rich. The cooks don't comprehend their own steak... More

Went to Roasters off Zamzama, above Ban Thai. The first thing you notice when you arrive is the lingering smell of smoke. Wile you are given a choice,of the "smoking" or "non-smoking" section, there is no way of telling which section you're in. The service and the food are mediocre. The menu is just a smaller version of the Arizona... More

It's a nice place, with good food and good /quick service. The menu is well diversified. Valet services seems to be a new trend in Karachi, but they got our car safe and sound. Recommended.

Roasters was not my favorite until the last time I visited it. They had revamped their menu, adjusted their portions, redone their dishes and wow had they done a good job of it!!!! If you are looking for value for money- this might not be the place. But good dining and family experience, you have come to the right place.

Roasters is the safest bet whenever in doubt. It never fails to impress me. The tarragon chicken is amazing, with ample serving. The pasta is to die for. The best however, is the chicken mushroom burger. You can have it repeatedly and not get sick of it!
