While not as well-known as the iconic Ravi Restaurant in Satwa, Karachi Darbar in Karama is certainly the more esteemed outlet’s equal in many ways, right down to the buzzing neon sign that dominates its appearance. Its spacious outdoor patio area attracts diners from the sub-continent, western Europe and the emirates alike, drawn in by the aroma of barbecued meats wafting down the street and the sight of vast plates of fluffy breads being carried out to tables. Staff are much quicker on their feet than those at most more expensive Pakistani restaurants. Tuck into huge chicken and lamb kebabs made of good-quality meat given the low cost (less than a bottle of water at most restaurants). We advise curry fans to avoid mutton dishes, which can be bland, and stick with spicier, tangier vegetarian options.
