Nice tsty food in a nicer atmosphere. You can sit down in the cushions and low tables area or in the european chair+table area. Service was fast even though the place was 70% full. Not the cheapest place but it was definitely affordable. 2 drinks + 2 mains + 2 chai teas = 34

What the Balutschistan lacks in sumptuous surroundings, it makes up for it with authenticity and the flavours. You can even sit at floor level for a traditional Pakistani meal.....if you can avoid the strain on your knees! Very tasty platter as a starter, followed by a sizzling mixture of lamb and chicken pieces in Tikka sauce. And finally a lamb... More

I have eaten here many times, lunch and dinner, and love it. The men who work here are friendly and love to tell you about their recipes. Lunch is served in a smaller "snack bar" room out front and most plates are a main meat or vegetable with sauce (similar to curry, if you are unfamiliar with Pakistani food) with... More

The service was friendly and helpful especially in describing the intricacies of each dish. The food was good without being special. I had a vegetarian curry which I enjoyed but was not memorable. You can sit down or up according to the flexibility of your leg muscles. There is apparently live music but not while we were there.

On the one hand, this was a filling lunch provided within the hour we had available for under 10 euro. On the other, the menu provided almost no ability to distinguish between different dishes, they were fairly indistinguishable when they arrived, and weren't particularly good then. Very poor balance of flavours - one bite was very salty, another sour, another... More

There are 3 Balutschistan restaurants that I have been in Hamburg. One on Bahrenfelder Strasse 169, its sister restauraunt on Grindelallee 91 (which will review here) and the other one on Grindelallee 31. My experience with Grindelallee 91 is awful. Ordered Seitan Sabsi Biryani. It smelled so bad, tasted a bit better. Looked not good. Was definitely microwaved. Peas were... More

Pakistan has one of the best vegetarian cusines. Has an area where you can sit on the floor to eat. Pretty authentic.
