Olive Garden, Pakistan - Nothing Italian about it!

This is going to be a quick bitchy post about Olive Garden Restaurant from Islamabad that recently opened a branch in Bahria Town Rawalpindi. I mean I cannot even begin to explain how utterly disappointing and UN-Italian their food was. The only thing that was any good was their decor and the 'on-the-house' Chicken Corn Soup they served us!

To give you a snapshot, in the Appetizers we ordered their mixed platter, which has everything - the mozarella sticks, the wings, nachos etc. Everything literally everything was cold! And, hence made it taste yuck! Then came the real test, both me and my husband unfortunately ordered the same thing - Penne Arrabiata. And, what we got was a DESI-style chicken pasta dipped in a chinese sweet chilli-style sauce. I mean come onnnnnn! I swear I couldn't take more than 2 bites of the thing, and literally forced myself to get it packed just to show everyone at home what pathetic food they are serving. My husband forced himself to finish half of his plate, and when he got the cheque (PKR 2100) and the feedback card, what he wrote must've certainly had their eyes-popping because he was fuming. Anyways we paid and left from there swearing to do the social service of informing everyone never to dine here. So here you go, we've done our bit.
