Retro @ Retro House Cafe

Located in Phase 5- Bahria Town, Islamabad; Cafe Retro House is among the very few pleasant dining places in town.

With retro-graffiti on the walls and an immaculate interior of vibrant colors; the ambiance grows on you. Next best thing is their interesting menu with Celebrity names & song lyrics.

I tried their “Mini Me”; which was actually grilled chicken in tarragon sauce served with mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. It was undoubtedly a good pick. The fresh “Mint Margarita” was equally amazing and refreshing.

Besides food, Retro House also has exclusive mini-cinemas where they offer movie-on-demand @ PKR 600/- per person. However, a minimum of 8 persons is required and you have to call in for reservations.

In short, this place is a must try!!!
