Rawalpindi is not Karachi and Nihari is not a Punjabi dish but after eating Nihari from Kala Khan, one changes his opinion. Kala Khan serves the ebst Nihari of not only twin cities but perhaps one of the best in the country. Located in Kartarpura (turn left from Waris Khan on Murre Road, while moving from Liaqat Bagh towards Faizabad), it is surrounded by many eateries selling desi dishes. Kala Khan is a complex of 4-5 interconnected / opposite shops, while some seating area is also along the road. We travelled for Sehri and by 1.15 past midnight and still two hours to Sehri; Kala Khan had already sold out except two plates, which we got. The taste was excellent with tender meat. Quantity was sufficient for 2 persons. Hot naans and sweet lassi completed our sehri and we were "tummy full". Nihari is strongly recommended for food lovers however hygiene conscious people should avoid it since neither the area nor the restaurant follows the basic cleanliness standards. Though, a family area is dedicated; however, it is recommended that Nihari be taken away and consumed at home.

There is no doubt this nehari is unrivaled across rawalpindi and islamabad. I would agree with other reviewers that the sitting arrangement and ambience is not the best for families, but the taste is worth it all.

Be sure to have a designated driver as the Lassi is refreshingly good and combined with the meal makes you sleepy :)

Pros:
Great Taste of Nihari with different varieties (toppings), my favorite is the one with nali (marrow)
Great Lassi
Tasty roghni Naans

Cons:
- Its a tough drive amidst streets and alleys, but thats downtown rawalpindi
- Limited seating arrangement

Had breakfast at Kala Khan and their Nehari was amazing as always. The only thing they need to work on is their sitting arrangement. Not too friendly for families.
