Restaurants and other projects
The organisation operates various Salt’n Pepper restaurant brands across Pakistan, each offering a unique dining experience. The group’s chronology of success is as follows:
1983: Salt’n Pepper Restaurants
Opening of the Salt’n Pepper Restaurant in Liberty Market and on The Mall Road in Lahore – the first proper family-style restaurants in the food industry of Pakistan. These restaurants pride themselves for being symbolised as an eatery with a customer loyalty spanning over three generations, and as a restaurant model these have inspired numerous other restaurants across Pakistan.
1992: Salt’n Pepper Village Restaurants
Salt’n Pepper Village restaurants are the group’s most revolutionary and innovative theme restaurants. The first Salt’n Pepper Village Restaurant was opened to international acclaim in Lahore in 1992. The sister restaurant in Sindh was successfully opened in Karachi in 1998.
The Salt’n Pepper Village restaurants are designed to embody the festive air of a Pakistani food bazaar. These restaurants are artistically decorated in traditionally Punjabi and Sindhi colours and designs, and have a unique style of presentation, which we call “Live Buffet”. Most of the food is cooked before our guests, as it would be on a resplendent food bazaar. While the quality of food and service is high class, the festive atmosphere and energy of the traditional province food eateries is maintained. These restaurants have garnered international recognition and are regularly visited by a large number of dignitaries and food lovers from both Pakistan and abroad.
The Karachi Village restaurant is situated on the D.H.A. coast and offers diners scenic views of the Arabian Sea. It is widely considered to be one of the largest and most popular restaurants in Karachi. Its fame is largely due to exceptional quality of food and warm, personalised service.
