Bur Dubai restaurant specialising in northern Indian kebabs
Time Out Says
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011It’s regrettable to judge a book by its cover, but it’s unfortunate to miss it altogether just because it was stacked away in an unlikely corner of the store. Kebab Korner, tucked inside the Howard Johnson (formerly Highland City) hotel at one end of Bur Dubai’s ‘Computer Street’, serves a wide range of kebabs and some scrumptious curries cooked in the dum style. While the kebabs are good, they are not exceptional; but the curries here are refreshingly different. The smoke-flavoured murgh begum bahar is a pleasant surprise, and even the popular fare such as choosa makhani and paneer-stuffed dum aloo Bhojpuri are top class.
But what truly marks out Kebab Korner is its décor that carries you straight into the earthy settings of rural Rajasthan - complete with the mud-smeared walls, straw-matted ceilings, ornate window screens, bead curtains and hanging puppets. The ethnic effect is augmented by the live music and dance performance in the late evenings. The reasonable amount on the food bill ensures that one carries that pleasure even after exiting Kebab Korner.
