Okra opened its doors in 1999 on Zamzama in Karachi and redefined what fine dining was all about. Today, Okra means different things to different people – a restaurant with just the right ambience, a place to be seen at or, more importantly, the best place for a Mediterranean cuisine.
Over the years, we have experimented with ingredients and recipes and perfected the art of cooking and serving. Even as we add a few new dishes to the small, select menu our patrons often return for their favourites – whether it is our unique style of grilled calamari or carpaccio of beef with herbs. We continue to set ourselves higher standards, both in the quality of food we prepare and the way we serve it.
A quaint, simple yet stylish setting, an intimate space, and sublime food combine to give diners an unforgettable experience.Once you have settled yourself in its cozy and casual surroundings, you will find yourself in no hurry to leave. Sit and relax and nibble on Halumi bites, grilled calamari, crisp salads, and the most succulent lamb chops in the country. And whatever else you do, don’t leave without diving into the warm, oozing chocolate gateaux.
Aside from the food, what sets Okra apart is the impeccable service it provides. Efficient and courteous, most of the staff have been with Okra since its inception. They are knowledgeable and passionate about the food they prepare and serve and are able to recommend dishes according to the diner’s palate.
