Indian restaurant in the heart of Dubai's curry corridor
Time Out Says
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011This underrated spot feels like a restaurant, bright paintings adorn the walls and cosy booths make up the seating (although there is a slightly musty odour in the air), but it has the prices of a canteen: curries cost under Dhs20. Its primary focus is south Indian cuisine, but the menu is extensive and also features classics like a tangy makhani and a spinach-filled dahl. We always opt for the ‘Chicken 65’ when visiting; the oddly named dish is basically chicken tikka, but is deep fried (oh dear). It can be a little dry at times, but spritz it with fresh lime, lather it in yoghurt and wrap it in a paratha and it’s definitely worth writing home about. Our favourite curry is the kothimir chicken – this gloriously thick coriander infused curry always comes just spicy and salty enough, tastes homemade and is thankfully not cream-laden. If you are just too bamboozled by the extensive menu, try one of the thalis, which come packed with curries, rice and roti.
