Time Out Says
Climb the winding staircase of the Four Points by Sheraton in Bur Dubai up to the mezzanine level and step back in time – a wall-to-wall-to-floor-to-ceiling dark wooden box of a restaurant.
It’s packed with regal-style furnishings – dining chairs that look more like thrones, brass goblets for drinking out of and several large, banquet tables that wouldn’t look out of place in a castle dining hall.
The space fills up quickly every night of the week however, and while it’s a small space, staff seem overwhelmed. Our first plates of food take 50 minutes to leave the kitchen – long after poppadoms and chutneys are demolished. Luckily live sitar music drowns out the rumbles of our stomachs.
But when the food does arrive, it’s excellent. Tandoor-roasted paneer and chicken tikka, biryanis, curries, parathas... The menu is one of the largest we’ve seen, and is packed with meat, fish and veggie dishes.
These are typical Indian dishes, given a little more TLC and taken to restaurant standard. With that, however, comes a price increase.
There are plenty of cheaper options in the vicinity – but none as interesting as this restaurant, and it’s for that reason we’ll remember Bazaar for a long time.
