Slider Zone is located in Bahria Town Phase-7 Islamabad, has brought a new concept to Pakistan of serving food on a conveyor belt. read the full review at Review Monkey.
What is a conveyor belt?
Conveyor belts in restaurants were invented by Yoshiaki Shiraishi in Japan (an owner of a small sushi restaurant) who had trouble with managing the restaurant all alone.
Yoshiaki Shiraishi came up with an idea of serving people through a conveyor belt Instead of hiring new staff to help him serve food. After working for five years his idea finally became a holy grail and he started serving food on a conveyor belt where food is served to the customers on a moving belt instead of any waiters. The first restaurant using conveyor belt technology was opened in Higashiosaka in 1958.
The Restaurant has brought foreign feels to the people of Pakistan by their impressive technology of serving food. Not only this but, also the food served over there is unique and each and everything has a concept and is built on an idea.
Slider zone has caused a sensation in the town. I heard about the place from a lot of my relatives and friends and decided to visit the place without wasting more time.
On a fine Thursday afternoon, I , along with my friend, decided to drive down to this new “talk of the town” restaurant.
The place looked fine from its outlook. As we walked inn, it only got better. I really liked the ambiance. It was neat and simply beautiful. We sat down to the place for a while before placing an order and discussed the interior and observed their new “conveyor belt technique”. It wasn’t hard to say that they have not only introduced this concept for the very first time in Pakistan but, are also maintaining it.
The cleanliness of the place and great response from the people over there made us more excited than we already were and we couldn’t wait to try out their food.
It was around 12:30 pm when we arrived at the place and we weren’t that hungry so we didn’t go with anything too fancy or giant so, we decided to keep it simple and decided to order a burger.
We waited for nearly 15-20 minutes and saw our burgers moving towards us on a conveyor belt. The burgers appeared relatively smaller than usual (about 3 inches wide bun). Me and my friend gave “that look” at each other and wondered what could be the science behind it.
We started a discussion on its size thinking of it as a serving less- earning more strategy. The manager somehow listened to it and walked towards and , He was kind and generous and explained to us thoroughly why their burgers were smaller than any other restaurant would serve backed by general research and stats on Pakistani restaurants that, about 70% of the food goes to waste, and only 30% of the total food served is consumed.
It was quite impressive to actually see it from the other angle. Anyway, it is always important to judge the food on the basis of its taste and quality rather than size. The burgers looked fresh and juicy and were actually very delicious. And yes, the manager seemed to be right, because I ate this burger, which apparently looked small, but was filling and the patty was rich and juicy also well-cooked and I felt through
Visiting slider zone is definitely one hell of an important thing to do while in Islamabad or nearby. I 10 on 10 recommend this place. The ambiance is great, the staff and food is good too. It is good if you visit the place with family or groups.

Slider Zone Reviews by Customers
Edit: To answer your questions I've made this edit
1. We were 8 adults and 3 children
2. We had the Beef Emperor Tower, 2 Separate chicken sliders, 4 steaks, and extra fries
3. I'm pretty sure as someone who is keen on beef I would know how old beef tastes versus fresh beef. Secondly, I myself had a restaurant so I got to try different steaks, and lastly, I've been to quite a few restaurants across the globe over the span of my life
4. We did let the server know
5. I'm happy for you but that does not change our experience
I'll also add that two people with us had an upset stomach afterwards. Just so you know, my comments were mainly to showcase my experience, if I had a great experience I would have mentioned so.
