Over the last two years, Tipu Sultan Road has emerged as one of Karachi’s popular commercial hotspots. This is due to the establishment of several cafés and high-end restaurants.
Accessible via Shahrah-e-Faisal, Tipu Sultan Road is lined with several high-end restaurants. Cocochan and Chop Chop Wok are go-to places if you are looking for delicious Chinese and Thai cuisines. For Italian and European food, head to Bella Vita which is equally popular for its interior.
A few desi restaurants are also located there including Sultan – The Royal Eatery where you can enjoy chicken tikka, seekh kababs and Peshawari karahi. Espresso and Xander’s also have a presence there where you can grab a quick bite and enjoy a hot cup of coffee with friends. Dunkin’ Donuts is also located there where you can satisfy your sweet tooth indulgence.
Due to increasing commercialisation, several houses that have stood there for decades have been repurposed to serve as commercial enterprises such as banks, salons, real estate and advertising agencies.
A few high-end clothing and homeware stores such as Tarzz and Habitt are also located there. Drive along the road and you will also see a significant number of educational institutes, healthcare facilities, superstores and wedding halls, in addition to well-maintained parks.
Tipu Sultan Road is increasingly becoming the perfect spot for the residents living nearby and further to this side of town, who now have their fair share of trendy restaurants and coffee shops and don’t need to trek down all the way to Zamzama or Defence to celebrate New Year.
