Walk into Antique Bazaar and you’re likely to find a restaurant full of diners rapt by the colourful musicians performing atmospheric Indian music on a lambent stage. The audience will probably be enjoying their food too – it’s among the best in Bur Dubai. The shami kebab appetisers are tidy packages of soft minced lamb and chickpeas infused with boldly flavoured coriander; and the machli chaat reveals tender flakes of hammour that unleash a squealing cheerleader team of attention grabbing, spice-tinged flavours.
The dark, rich minced lamb of the Hyderabadi kheema makes for a fine main course; the flavour of the soft, juicy meat is every bit as pleasing as its appearance. Another winner is the kurumuri bhindi, which uncovers tangy tomato chunks and crispy bhindi tickled by subtle hints of herbs and spices. However, the saag aloo lacks vibrancy due to a dearth of spices and the naan breads are like second-rate American wrestlers – stiff, unimpressive and laden with grease. Still, these are merely blips – Antique Bazaar is a reliably good mid-range restaurant.
