Sattar Bukhsh Cafe Food Review

Last Week, I and my friends planned out to give a surprise birthday party to a friend of ours. We decided to go to Sattar Bukhsh Café as the birthday girl, my friend wanted to try it since very long time back.

We had already heard about it that it’s a café with beautiful truck art paintings, situated in a small cottage like place in Clifton block 4 near Abdullah Shah Ghazi’s Mazar, Karachi.

Most of the people by reading the name Sattar Buksh Cafe consider as the desi version or the copy of the multinational chain Starbucks, but it is way different. Sattar Bukhsh Cafe Opened in 2012.

They first had the logo very similar to Starbucks, but now the logo has been changed due to controversy as it was Starbucks look a-like logo plus the name is similar.

Maybe they named it Sattar Buksh to attract people by using this name deliberately as a marketing tactic.

The logo of Sattar Buksh is a picture of a man resembling a Punjabi Gujjar or a Sindhi Wadera type with Moustache.

Here’s the review.

Sattar Buksh Café is located in a small cottage that gives homely atmosphere. Sattar Buksh is a proper café not a dhaabaa

Sattar Buksh has an outside place open air space or a courtyard for sheesha smokers, an inside place for non sheesha smokers plus they have an upstairs space for parties and different arrangements.

The interior of Sattar Buksh has been decorated with very beautiful and attractive pop art sofas and chairs and truck art of the local culture. The theme is beautiful. We loved the ambiance and the beautiful crafted art that was very eye catching and unusual. The place was quiet maybe because it was evening time when we went there and the inside venue was fully air conditioned

FOOD:-

Sattar Buksh has a big menu with variety of food. The entries in the menu are very catchy. They make one smile after reading the funny names of the entrees.

Sattar Buksh is a café but has every kind of food in the menu from Burgers to Sandwiches, from Paninis to Pizzas, from Bun kebabs to Daal Chawal, from Coffees to Teas (hot or iced), from Cookies to Snacks, Pastas, Beverages, Milk shakes, Ice creams, Juices, Desserts and even Gulab Jaman.

They have funny names of the burgers like Topless Besharam Chicken/ Beef Burger, Badtameez Chicken/ Beef Burger and the Vehshi Burger in Beef/ Chicken.

We decided to order the Badtameez Burger in Beef and the Vehshi Burger in Chicken.

The Badtameez Beef Burger was of 525 Rs. It had a grilled Beef steak filled with mustard sauce. It wasn’t a very tasty burger plus the Beef steak was very flat. The taste was not as memorable as the name.

Whereas, the other burger, the Vehshi Chicken Burger was a very juicy and tempting burger. It had marinated grilled Chicken Breasts topped with cheese slice. Filled with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and dripped with mustard and Marinara Sauce. It was a very juicy and very tasty burger with Olive on top. The Vehshi Chicken Burger was served with French fries in a small quantity with tomato ketchup and a one more dip that was sweet and sour dip.

The next thing we ordered was the Dehshatgard Spicy Pizza which was of 625 Rs. It was a fulfilling pizza for one person. Dehshatgard Pizza was a spicy thin-crust Pizza with marinated spicy chicken, Marinara Sauce, Red Chilli Flakes, black Olives, Mushrooms, tomatoes and onions topped over with Mozzarella Cheese.  It was served with tomato ketchup and red Chilli flakes. It was a good pizza but not so good as I had expected.

The next thing we ordered was Grilled Chicken and Spinach Panini which was of 575 Rs. It was Sattar Buksh’s freshly baked 4 pieces of Classic Panini bread layered with Grilled Chicken, Spinach, Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese and caramelized with Onions. It tasted yummy. It was served with a little quantity of French fries and Tomato Ketchup.

For drinks ordered soft drinks and a Strawberry Smoothie. The thing that is tempting for Sattar Bukhsh’s customers is that they give their signature cardboard moustache attached to the straw when one orders a soft drink or any kind of drink or beverage.

The good thing about Sattar Buksh was that the food was served hot in 15-20 minutes.

Overall, the Food was good and with a nice aroma. The names of the food in the menu were quite funny and we were excited to get them ordered.

Even there were more things on the menu card that were funny like there was a drink by the name ‘Load shedding’. Lol

They even had the name of Finger fish and chips as Firangi Fish and chips. And Prawns as Jheenga-la-la.

FINAL VERDICT:-

Sattar Buksh Cafe

Sattar Buksh Cafe

Sattar Buksh Cafe is a place that makes you come back for more and try their funny menu and funny truck art ambiance! It is a must visit place for everyone even the kids as they have a kids special menu also. It is place where everyone will enjoy.

The price is okay not too cheap not too expensive.

The Sattar Bukhsh Café is excellent over-all but they need to improve the quality of some food items as some of the things we ordered were excellent and some tasted average.

I will rate Sattar Buksh 8/10 by looking over all, at the ambiance, food and service and the food presentation.
