Tehzeeb for the food connoisseur
A place for connoisseurs, food, art and designerwear’ is how Tehzeeb is described – an art gallery and café with a section for designer wear, Tehzeeb is located at Park Road, F-8 in Islamabad.
According to Muneeb and Manail, the owners of Tehzeeb, “We wanted a place where we could mesh all the things that we love and hold dear — arts, history, music, fine clothes and tasteful cuisine – a place where young and old could all feel at home”.
The restaurant for connoisseurs claims to offer authentic cuisine from around the world. It is a mix of world cuisine from traditional local to Italian, fine Mughal and continental. What adds to the experience is the blooming green tea, Godiva coffee, Cuban cigars or a chocolate fondue.
Funkybake, an independent café/bakery that specializes in personalized cakes and cupcakes, is currently handling most of the dessert menu at Tehzeeb which is diverse and offers everything from the traditional shahi tukra to chocolate truffle, cheese cake and the red velvet cupcakes quite famous these days.
As mentioned, food is not the only specialty here. The section on the upper floor displays designer wear and is standing out as one of the unique fashion galleries in Islamabad. In the designer section, local designers from Islamabad stock women’s wear and accessories. The men’s section includes Ammar Belal’s fine tailored shirts along with designer wear from internationally renowned brands Zara and Hugo Boss. For women’s wear they have local designers like Fizza Azeem, Mehrose Gul, Ayesha Zulqarnain, Zee, Pony, Deeba and Zoe and others. The whole place is decorated with handpainted furniture, also from local artists.
The ambience is specially created to suit families and friends. The interior is a combination of traditional and modern trends to cater to individual aesthetics. Importantly, those going to Tehzeeb regard the service as prompt, personalized and welcoming.
