Bait Al Mandi

A Dubai favourite for almost two decades, which has become a classic

Time Out Says

A dominant force of Dubai’s budget dining scene, with branches all over the city, Bait Al Mandi specialises in, you guessed it, mandi.

To the uninitiated, it’s a dish of baked meat and spiced rice – not a million miles away from the more widely known biryani, but a regional version, with local herbs and spices.

Having launched in Dubai in 2001, this authentic Middle Eastern restaurant has a relatively small menu (compared to many other Middle Eastern and Levantine restaurants, anyway).

Its focus is squarely on the Middle Eastern classic, believed to have originated in Yemen, with options including chicken, lamb and goat all for as little as Dhs26.

Not only that, you can also try hot and cold mezze, soups and grilled king fish on rice, served with lashings of chutney or yoghurt dip.

There’s also a vast selection of exotic fresh fruit juices such as pomegranate, avocado or carrot to wash it all down with – and do come prepared to eat a lot.
