Karachi Darbar

Karachi Darbar
A trip to this Indian peddling the cuisine of Pakistan might be worth it if you happen to be the right side of Karama and up for a somewhat hit-and-miss experience. A decent enough starter is the prawn garlic fry, complete with a deluge of little red prawn balls in a thick sauce. The chicken kadai is also a take-it-or-leave-it kind of dish, coming in a red gravy that is far too oily, though the meat is tender. The chilli paneer, however, is excellent, with the cheese drowning in a rich tomato sauce. But the bill is the standout here. If you’re starving and short of a few dirhams (and in Karama), you could do worse than giving it a whirl here. Karachi Darbar

    I've only been to the one across the street from Zabeel Park, but I can't say enough good things about it. As others have said, piles of tasty food for cheap, the service is swift and the place is clean. I eat like a champion and I've yet to get the bill over AED 40.

    Lovely food, absolutely stuffed our faces for 70 AED including drinks. The map is wrong here however, it's actually on the service road off Sheikh Rashid Road before you get to Sana Fashion.

    Probably the most consistent Chicken Tikka in Dubai. Been eating at Karachi Darbar for more than 15 years now and it still tastes the same! At no other place in Dubai will you find great, fresh Pakistani BBQ starting at under AED10.

    Their curries might sometimes go wrong during busy lunch times but the most reliable 'curries' you can ahve here: Nihari and Haleem. Cheap and delicious at any time of the day, seriously. I'm not a rice person so won't talk about their Biryani (which I've heard is pretty decent though).

    For the price of per-person-dining, Karachi Darbar is my first choice during the day. I love alone and have to eat out a lot. KD is cheap, has a no-nonsense service attitude and their Pakistani BBQ is pretty freakin' amazing.
