Karahi is one of the best of all Pakistani food and is very dear to the hearts of all Pakistanis around the world. For those who haven’t tried it before, “Karahi” takes its name from the deep circular, iron pan its cooked in known as the Karahi, which is often used in countries such as Pakistan, India, and Afghanistan. The metal dish is then used as its own serving bowl, sizzling hot coming straight to the center of your table.
Usually, a Karahi curry is made with ginger garlic paste, fresh diced tomatoes on high flame together with chef’s secret spices. Here at Karahi Point, you can customize your Karahi up to 16 different ways whether it’s chicken: Bone-in, Boneless, Dark meat or White meat, Fish Karahi, Kebab Karahi, Paneer Karahi, Goat Karahi, and Lamb Karahi.
The high flame style of cooking is what gives each Karahi its magic so full of smokiness and tender chunks of meat/ This is an iconic dish of Pakistan and one of our specialties at Karahi Point.
2. Chicken Tikka
We love our Tandoori Oven – we use every opportunity we get to cook our dishes in them; because the meats are taken to a completely new level of taste and look when they are cooked in Tandoor. With the Tandoori Chicken – you get your choice of boneless chicken pieces of dark or white meat marinated with yogurt and our secret tandoori masala and char-grilled to perfection is a delight to your stomach.

Pakoras or “Pakoda” are a classic, all-time favorite snack for “desis” around the world. Our Chicken Pakoras are good on their own.

The slow-cooking results in consistent oozing and thick, so full of ultra-tender meat chunks literally floating throughout the dish and usually garnished with lemon as well as thinly-sliced ginger and chili that adds even more heat and punch. Grab a Naan and just dunk into this hearty dish.
6. Seekh Kebab
Legend has it that Seekh Kebab was originated when soldiers in an earlier era would skewer their meats on their sword and roast it. We continue to follow the same tradition with our Kebab skewers. This kind of kabab made by packing minced chicken marinated in earthy spices onto a skewer, yielding a bit more of a crumbly texture. Like all meat for kababs, it gets a long marinade, resulting in juicy and tender beef that’s very flavourful. Try the Seekh Kebab – Beef or Chicken available.
