From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008

Top of the à la carte list of delights is the magnificent fish tikka. Even if you’re not a huge fan of fish, these hunks of hammour are a must-have, marinated with red chillies, garlic, ginger and coriander seeds, and then barbecued until gently crisped on the outside and torrentially juicy on the inside.

The mutton karahi doesn’t match the majesty of the fish, but the little iron pot of tender meat, tomato and devilishly hot green chilli in a smooth, rich sauce packs a punch, even when wrapped up and dispatched in sheets of soft, buttery garlic naan.

Cool down with the exquisite, thick, pistachio-packed kulfi.

Visited just before the end of Ramadan 3 days back and this was after I last visited a couple of years back. Food was good too. Eager waiters.
You will undoubtedly leave sated and satisfied.

BBQ Deligths at Oud Metha is the best. The JBR branch food is not very tasty and less spicy.

It was really bad experience in JBR BBQ delights. Manager does not know how to talk to customers. We have been to many resturants, but JBR BBQ Delights manager spoke to us very rudly. Management should take some action to teach their manager "Customer Service" rather than arguing with customers.

The seating arrangement was poorly designed looks soo crowded. People can see other tables easily. There was no food for kids, I think thats why kids are free.

Manager does not want to listen against him. He does not have guts to take money from arab guys (if they leave without paying)

Oud Mehtha branch is much better.
In JBR not much varity of food, like very few nan (1 or 2)
Food was OK not much spicy.

The food was really good and we enjoyed the food very much. Specially BBQ with Parhata.... I am on a diet but could not control myself that day. The best was Fish Tikka with Parhata and Lassi (sweet).

have been to their oud methaand have always enjoyed their food, especially their leg of lamb roast.
had heard that their JBR branch isn't that good but tried it nevertheless this afternoon and came back grossly dissappointed.
the leg of mutton, didn't come whole like it does at the our metha place. its all cut up and that spolit the whole experience. taste wise was a bit less spicy, but not too different.
the charga chicken (half) which at oud metha comes with half a chicken from a whole one sliced lengthwise was four measly cold pieces here and to top it all.....was even smelly.
very dissappointing and in case they dont get their act together soon, the JBR branch will see a lot of dissatisfied customers!!!!

Amazing restaurant with great Pakistani food. The buffet is absolutely mouth watering and one can stuff oneself till the brim and still there is more. The price is a great value for money. Have been to this branch and the other branch in JBR more than 50 something times now.

The grills, the biryani, the haleem, the kebabs, the curries hmmmm. Aik bar khao gay to khatay reh jao gaye, no one can eat just once !

Great Pakistani food. The barbeque stuff is really delicious. If there's one thing that they need to improve is their service.

Love it, love it, love it!

The closest you'll get to authentic Pakistani grilling, these guys are the master at it. This is a chain that began in Pakistan, and cuz of the popularity has crossed borders to Dubai.

Great value for money for succulent kababs! Definitely, worth the try!

Their JBR branch is even worst than Oud Mehta. Sub standard food with Sub standard staff and when faced back to back order problems waiters started running here n there to look for manager who was chatting outside the restaurant with friends and said he has no time to solve petty problems.

Barbecue Delights has the best Asian Buffet in town.

It offers all what you may want in a Pakistani restaurant on a buffet table. And each item is done to perfection.

The down side is that the buffet is available only for dinner. If it was available for lunch too it would have killed the competition in the area.

But the menu is nice too, don't miss the platters.
