Ravi Restaurant

Indian & Pakistani

  • Ravi Restaurant
There’s nothing grand about Ravi, and you won’t find fine dining here, but what you will find is excellent, extremely affordable Pakistani food. It’s very basic (plastic tablecloths, polystyrene cups) but the focus is on the cooking. There’s a menu, but staff will tell you what is available when you’re there and recommend what to have. That approach is fine with us, after all, they should know what’s best. We can tell you the dahl fry is amazing – gently spiced lentils in a silky yellow sauce – as is the mutton peshwari (spicy and a little sweet, with tender meat, full of flavour). Naans, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, are the perfect way to make sure you get every drop of the delicious sauce. Biryanis are also plentiful and popular. It’s hard not to love Ravi, a restaurant worth seeking out, and returning to, as many Dubai residents will tell you. Ravi Restaurant

    Know the place since 1986. Food is tasty especially the Chicken Karahi with Hot Naan. A nice place to see real Dubai in action!

    We travelled from Canada and this restaurant was on my list as I had seen it was recommended- it was FANTASTIC!
    My whole family which includes 3 children, absolutely loved the garlic naan, the butter chicken was great too- we tried 7 dishes and each was so full of flavour- we would recommend it to anyone who loves Indian food- you are not there for the decor- it is clean - we were there for the experience of a great meal- and the cost was very reasonable!

    I cant understand what all the fuss is about, i have tasted much better food from Mirdif City Centre food court. The curries were extremely watery, Raita was tasteless and the naan bread was not up to standards.

    All in all, i was very disappointed with Ravi and will stick to my own curries or my other favoured restaurants.

    Went there to to have dinner for the first time with family as we happened to be in Satwa. Yummiest Pakistani food I've tasted since in dubai, and we often eat out/ order from pakistani restaurants in our area, Barsha. We had the upstairs family room to ourselves, and service was 'ok'. However decor needs some investment which I'm sure Ravi can do! We loved the kneema, peshwari mutton, and of course the hot chapati, naan. Loved loved loved the mango lassi! will go again just for that! Be prepared to have tears in your eyes as you devour the food, nothing is mild there! My toddler could only nibble the naan. And also come home feeling super heavy & stomachs which will need a while to readjust!
