The restaurant business is extremely competitive and establishments have to up their game with ever-changing customer tastes to bring them to their restaurants. Some might go the way of gimmicks, like the Hogwarts Cafe or the Game of Thrones one.


One restaurant in Lahore is taking dining the concept of a little too seriously, enough to put you behind bars

It’s called Chaye Thaana and it’s located in DHA and you actually eat in prison cells.

Doesn’t this give you the creeps?

The restaurant seems like a complete replica of a desi thaana

There’s a hawaldaar’s table to ensure your orders are in order, just like a real jail.

The dining area is made up of tables and chairs inside of prison cells

We’re told your bill is served in the form of an FIR which is quite cool.

Along with snacks and drinks, you can play board games while you’re serving jail time.


The waiters are dressed up like thana inmates which adds to the authenticity of the experience

But to be honest, they look like inmates from some Amreekan show than out of a Pakistani thaana.
