After listening to all the horror stories of Karachi from far off (Islamabad) I was quite pleasantly surprised to find Chai Shai, a place for tea and coffee, nestled in a quite corner of DHA. Its not something that has not been done before, Chai places are scattered all over the town. But this place has a unique artistic touch to it, coupled with some unique food offerings such as a tandoori pizza. A pleasant sea breeze, that helps you forget the miseries thrown your way by K-Electric, is an added advantage. And somehow the place seems safe, you do not fear losing your i-Phone 6 while getting back in your car at a late hour in the night. Yes the party continues all night, till the Karachi boyz (pun intended) have had their sumptuous Sehri and are ready to hit the bed.

Bottomline: if you are in Karachi and want to hangout with friends there is no better place than Chai Shai.
