Heights n Delights - Best roof top restaurant in Lahore

Heights n’ Delights

My initial plan for the weekend just gone by involved lots of sleep and the completion of a book I had started when the heat-wave across the country was still in its betimes. All of this changed when a friend of mine invited me to the pre-opening of a restaurant his close friend had just set up. Not one to pass up any opportunity which presents itself with food, I took him up on his offer and am glad I did so.

Situated in the heart of the capital of the most thriving province (Punjab), the cultural behemoth and the overall second largest city in the country; Lahore, Height n' Delights is a restaurant which combines the Continental, Chinese and Barbecue dietaries for the service of the general public with the provision of a sanguine view of the Gaddafi Stadium floodlights and the meek sunset from its roof-top.

Walking up the recently furnished florid marble staircase, beside the New Prince Hall which holds the ground and first floor of the structure, a palpable air of enthusiasm flowed among my fellow diners. We, that is to say my friend and I, were escorted to our seats by a plump looking host who seemed as much pleased to receive us as if he had known us for ages. Not a second before we were seated in our chairs, which were surprisingly more comfortable than I had expected them to be, an eager eyed waiter stood attentively by with the menu. One look at it gave me the impression of a thorough background check on the owner's part, for the variety of dishes available catered to the needs of people of all ages; Malie Boti, Chicken Chilli Dry, Chicken Handi, Garlic Nan, Mint Margarita so on and so forth.

The set prices were moderate and more than a shade below the earth-shattering standards set by many of the local food-chains. I ordered chicken handi, chinese rice and a plate of tikka-botti. Hardly fifteen minutes later, the tantalizing aroma of fresh food filled my senses and I ate to my leisure. The service renders special commendation here, for our waiter was always at hand and always willing and efficient. As far as the food is concerned, I couldn't have had any qualms about it even if I had worn my spectacles to pick at the tiniest of details. Not a big fan of rice away from home, I'm glad I took the plunge this time around, for the chinese rice became one of my favorites in an instant. The tablecloth seemed neat and quaint and the glasses, dishes, knives and forks were all classy and well chosen. The whole ambience of the place exhibited a freshness and tranquility expected from a restaurant which had made its way up to the top after years of perseverance and consistent deliverance of quality. I congratulated my luck for having been seated so near the air conditioner but, a visit to the restroom assured me that the whole place was as uniformly air conditioned as can be hoped for, always a plus when looking for spots of refreshment in this part of the hemisphere. The décor was soft on the eyes and complimented well the artful slabs of the main wall.

Upon inquiry, I found that the indoor facility could hold up-to a hundred diners at a time, while the outdoor and roof-top ones could easily accommodate twenty-five and fifty people respectively, all at a time. I went up to the roof-top, which overlooked a major portion of the Metro Bus Service of Lahore, and was met with a serene overview of the beautiful city.

In retrospect, I would highly recommend anyone looking to appease their taste-buds to go and have a night out at Heights n' Delights. The timing is suitable at 6 PM to 2 AM and the food will leave you wanting more.
