Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
They say never judge a book by its cover. Well, this couldn’t be more fitting for this hole-in-the wall Bur Dubai eatery. A (very) narrow and rickety staircase leads you to a pocket-sized and humble dining space which appears to pull in streams of locals; always a good sign. Vegetarian street food is one of the cornerstones of Mithaas’ menu, and boy is it good. For as little as Dhs25 you can quite literally fill the table with chatts and thalis and put your taste buds into overdrive. Their renowned pani puri; hollow, bite-sized bits of puffy bread stuffed with yummy spiced green lentils, still hit the spot, but in truth, there wasn’t a single thing that passed our lips that wasn’t delectable. And don’t leave home without one or two kilograms of their exquisite dry fruits – presented in beautifully decorated handmade boxes. If you hadn’t guessed already, Time Out is rather smitten with this gem of a place, it’s just a shame we can’t keep it to ourselves.
