Time Out Says

Previously Special Ostadi, Al Ustad Special Kebab has been serving kebabs to the community for the past 38 years. Packed on any given day of the week, the small Bur Dubai canteen-style eatery is decorated with thousands of pictures of people who have eaten in the restaurant and met its late proprietor, various trinkets from around the word and clocks set to various Middle Eastern country’s times (that we’re not entirely convinced actually work, but were too engrossed in eating to really notice). The menu is short and sweet. It consists of chicken soup, hummus, kebabs, kebabs and more kebabs, all served with either rice or bread and slices of onion, tomato, cucumber and a small dish of garlic sauce. Staff are quirky and personable and aren’t afraid to pick your meal for you if you’re unsure what to order. You’ll get a comprehensive assortment of grilled meats that are all outstanding; we could not find fault here. And as well as the delicious, juicy marinated meats, the price will put a smile on your face, too. A generous meal for two will set you back a little over Dhs100, making this restaurant a must-try. Be prepared to queue for a table and persevere. It’s well worth it.
