I went to the Bahria Town, Phase 4, Civic Centre one and this is a truthful account of my dinner experience there.
Ginyaki Islamabad is just behind F-7 Markaz on the rear side

What is the Meaning of Ginyaki?
Ginyaki is part of the Japanese word Genkiyaki that means health-grill. I don’t know where the Chinese dishes came from, but that, I guess is a Pakistani jugaar.
How is Ginyaki pronounced?
For all those of you that are pronunciation Nazis’, the correct word is “jin-yaki”
Ginayaki Bahria Town
It is located right at the bend of Civic Centre of Bahria Phase -4.
There is very little parking space. I got lucky and found a valet of a neighboring restaurant.
This location has two decks in the Bahria town franchise. One is the ground floor with full-size glass windows visible from the outside.
The other one is the rooftop that is reachable through a metal staircase.
Dining tables are small and the place seems crowded. Especially considering I could hear the love birds right behind me, chatting sweet nothings to each other.
This restaurant in Bahria is very busy on weekends and people generally wait to get a table. So, call for reservations first.
There are two servings in each meal;
- the main and
- the side dish.
The main dish is Chinese chicken, beef, and seafood while the side dish is noodles and egg fried rice.
Serving was sufficient for one person’s dinner.
They also have
- non alcoholic Drinks, and
Best dish to order
I personally found the noodles, just about ok. I have tasted better and fresher noodles, elsewhere.
Review of the Food
The Chinese dishes were too sweet for the pallet and less spicy. There has to be a balance between the two.
Beef dish was tasty, but not dry enough to be called a dry beef dish.
Restaurant people also have cakes and brownies as deserts.
I thought the Chinese never consumed refined sugar. They consider it poison, which is partially true.
The restaurant has a take away at the Restaurant and with food panda as well
Food Panda says you can order take-away from them here.
So, Ginyaki is a Pakistani restaurant, with a Chinese menu and a Japanese name. Go figure. It is worth visiting at least once.
I would rate this restaurant Bahria town Phase-4 a 6.5/10, mainly because of its not-so-healthy food and crowded space.
