Highly Commended Best Budget 50 Comments

You sit at plastic outdoor tables under a buzzing sign while traffic roars past your ear as you eat, so why does Ravi’s have such a good reputation among diners? Simple – the food. Try to find better Indian-Pakistani-style cuisine in Dubai. Or actually, don’t waste your time – there isn’t any. Fresh, flavoursome curries, kebabs and barbecued meats from the grill, unbeatable dal and a conveyor belt of hot, doughy fresh bread can match food at any five-star establishment. Don’t miss the otherworldly green chilli masala, but if you’re not sure, helpful waiters are happy to make recommendations. Grab your greediest friend and order as much as the pair of you can eat – you’ll still have change from a Dhs100 note. The biggest surprise is perhaps that a Ravi’s branch hasn’t yet been plonked in the middle of a hotel. Here’s to hoping it never is – give us the plastic chairs and buzzing sign any day.
