Mumtaz Mahal

Indian & Pakistani

Mumtaz Mahal
Stepping inside the Arabian Courtyard Hotel is like stepping into another world. It is an extravagantly decorated place and Mumtaz Mahal buys into the theme. Booths are made from Indian carriages and musicians play live while you eat. It all makes for a bizarrely atmospheric experience that is a match for the north Indian food. The dishes here are full of flavour, fragrant and spicy. Staff are helpful and let you get on with your meal once it’s arrived. Everything about the place has a strange charm, and while it’s not fine dining, Mumtaz Mahal is a good middle ground between Old Dubai’s cafés and the high-end restaurants elsewhere in the city.

    Very bad experience, as it gives a feel of dance bar rather a decent restaurant.

    Went there on a weekend. The service was good until they asked us to speak on the radio ( radio spice or something ) give good reviews about us and all that jazz.. finaly once done we were offered the menu. mind it - 8 people on the table and we are given only 1 menu,
    anyhow the food is selected and it arrives. Dissapointment galore.
    cant really belive people actualy come here to eat.. Supposed to be a family venue but you see men oogling at the dancer ( yes they have a nice dancer performing on stage ) and gestures go on , and men tease and she smiles etc. Embarrassment as i was with my kids.
    Thee food was a utter put off though.. would ignore the sleazy men but what about the food ? Service is so slow and the staff are more intersted in serving the drunk men instead of families.

    Ambience: Music takes centrestage. You cannot relegate it to the background. Those who wish to have a quiet dinner may avoid this place. Singer sings well in a melliflous voice. Volume was slightly loud but not to the point of being irritating and helps to appreciate the nuances of the singing. In between the singing, a couple of girls do a dance bar routine. Those who were getting high on drinks are taken to greater heights. I was seated right adjacent to the stage on a sofa with a low table. Not a good idea especially if you're having soup. The other tables were normal ones with chairs. Seating located around the stage can give you a good view but those in the far corners of the room do not.

    Dinner consisted of mutton paya(trotters) soup and mutton raan(thigh). Soup was nothing special. The raan was well done, soft and cooked in a thick and tasty masala - an enjoyable fare. Total cost including a small bottle of water and tip, Dhs130.

    This is a place for middle aged roosters and for families despite the dance bar routine. Cheers!
