Kebab Corner

Bur Dubai restaurant specialising in northern Indian kebabs

Kebab Corner
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
It’s regrettable to judge a book by its cover, but it’s unfortunate to miss it altogether just because it was stacked away in an unlikely corner of the store. Kebab Korner, tucked inside the Howard Johnson (formerly Highland City) hotel at one end of Bur Dubai’s ‘Computer Street’, serves a wide range of kebabs and some scrumptious curries cooked in the dum style. While the kebabs are good, they are not exceptional; but the curries here are refreshingly different. The smoke-flavoured murgh begum bahar is a pleasant surprise, and even the popular fare such as choosa makhani and paneer-stuffed dum aloo Bhojpuri are top class.

But what truly marks out Kebab Korner is its décor that carries you straight into the earthy settings of rural Rajasthan - complete with the mud-smeared walls, straw-matted ceilings, ornate window screens, bead curtains and hanging puppets. The ethnic effect is augmented by the live music and dance performance in the late evenings. The reasonable amount on the food bill ensures that one carries that pleasure even after exiting Kebab Korner. Kebab Corner

    i went yesterday for food there. its a lovely place with very good interior, we when near 9:00pm there were very few people there for food, the staff is very polite and respectful and when ask for dish suggestion will polity describe each dish for you. the singers are amazing, there voice is soo good feels like sitting there for hours there and listen to them, even we can request for a song too, dance performance are quite decent as if you go out there with family you will not feel embarrassed, its kind of dance performance where you feels like clapping for the dancer, really nice place to be at enjoyed it. Beware the prices are a bit high.

    Not a refined place. Kebab Korner is in the grey zone between a restaurant and a night club. Singing was just that, singing, and not a performance. Would have sounded better if the restaurant was bigger and more spaced out. During break in the singing a girl starts doing dance numbers. A girl dancing in a practically empty restaurant and the few guests there showing complete disinterest. A pathetic sight indeed. Not a place for family with kids.

    Galouti kebab and daria -e-aag were decent enough. Service was prompt and pleasing.
