The quitting of restaurants from Bahria Town is nothing new for us. In Sector D we have been observing the instability of market for years. Generally, there are hell a lot of closings in Bahria Town but recently in Sector D, Stop n Watch restaurant was closed and this time Kobeda Palace has wiped out. It was opened last year at the end of November.
I do not know when it was out from the market but I saw it yesterday on my way to friend’s place. The restaurant was closed and there was a total blackout at the location. Not to mention, I remember that I’ve tried their special baked Kobedas with crispy naan which was actually good in taste and very juicy. So, the taste wasn’t an excuse for its closure, the only major drawback is that their choice of location was totally off and couldn’t get much-needed customer’s attention. Also, they have had a very congested sitting area, without any surrounding commercial activity and the traffic flow is too low. It was located in Ayyub Tower, AA block, near to the bridge.
Opening a new restaurant can be risky, especially in Bahria Town almost every restaurant owner is in throes of getting a favorable response from the residents. Of course, restaurant’s food taste, services, and ambiance is more important factors but I believe a right spot for the restaurant plays a significant role to make it a success or may turn out to be a dud.
And, we all know that not every location is right for a new restaurant and I was wondering and couldn’t get an answer why every newly opened restaurant chose Sector D’s location for a start? As I have already mentioned in one of my updates that Sector D is the most unstable spot for any kind of business. It is my concern and do share your thoughts in comments why so many restaurants prefer this area because we have been observing many knockouts from Sector D.
Well, in Sector D there are already 8 restaurants that are serving including Mcdonald’s and 4 restaurants out of 8 are opened over the time of two months. There is another restaurant that has opened recently by the name Bread & Bean-Cafe & Grill. I haven’t seen any road hoardings or heard any news before and after its opening. However, I saw it today and the balloons caught my attention while passing through AA block, and got its menu card which is attached below.
Bread & Bean-Cafe & Grill is offering flat 20% discount on the entire menu. This discount offer is valid on the dine-in, take away and home delivery for one week and you can still have 3 days to avail this discount.
It is located in the basement, 62- AA Block, Sector D. It is adjacent to Smokehouse Grill and opposite to Lahori Khabay, which are also opened a few days ago.
Opening time: 1:00 PM.
Closing time: 1:00 AM.
I saw the above restaurant Little Diner, a few days ago and it’s been a month now that they’ve placed the board of opening soon. Whenever I pass through it I observe that they’ve only placed the front board, and after that forget to do other renovation and finishing work out there. And I couldn’t find anyone to get some information about this restaurant.
So, finally today, the owner of this restaurant told me that, this restaurant was first started in Gulberg-3 near Model Town Court. The first one is closed now and Little Diner is going to be the only branch in Bahria Town. He further informed me that, the ingredients and spices they will use in most of the foods have imported from the U.S. They will serve all types of food including Fast Food, Italian, Chinese, and Desi Food in this little one. Well, Little Diner is planned to be opened today or maybe tomorrow.
Little Diner in Bahria Town is located at Umer Block, main road, Sector C, commercial area. Opposite to Adeeba Valley departmental store and adjacent to Let’s Make-up. Fri-Chicks was also opened at this location last year. But, due to lack of customer’s attention, they moved to Sector E.
For the time being, Little Diner will open at lunchtime and close until midnight. Later on, they’ll also add breakfast menu.
