    The restaurant's best dish was the Mango Fish Curry and the Aappams. Loved the kababs and the spicy biryani. Affordable food at good quality

    An abundance of poor reviews have shrouded the Appa Kadai of Karama. However, after a solid few pop ups about the Dubai Marina location, I thought it was a must try. I took my family, grandfather, aunt, mother and father and went for dinner. At 8pm, it was still empty but iftar was just setting in so didnt hold it against them. My first impression was great, the restaurant was clean and the staff had uniforms. I would even believe that they were HACCP certified seeing that they actually had hair knits on in the kitchen! (Thank you for learning the value of hygiene!)
    Anyways we ended up ordering the vegetable curry combos and I ordered the Chicken Kadai. Both were absolutely fantastic. Our first happy response came after we had the complimentary Appalam which was not oily at all (a first!) and tasty. Then the food came out at an appropriate time from when the order was placed. What was great was that the Aapams did not come out at the same time because they were being made fresh. Not only that, but our server kept an astute eye on our consumption levels only to bring out a fresh Aapam once a person was almost about to finish theirs, perfect.
    Then....dessert. Sorry to say, complete failure. The gulab jamun tasted rancid and the another dessert which I cannot even recall due to the extremely synthetic yellow color, was horrid.
    Nonetheless, washing it all down with the tasty fresh lime soda (something i had been craving from the streets of india) was lovely.
    Overall, I am definitely coming back for the food (main course at least), perhaps even attempt the delivery - - heck for Dhs 180 for 5 people, I am coming back more than once!

    Good service and very reasonably priced. Meal for two, more than you can eat for AED 70. No complaints. Excellent food
