Nefertiti Restaurant

Russian food with an Egyptian name in Bur Dubai

Time Out Says

The name of this restaurant could be deceptive as you would be forgiven for thinking that it served solely Egyptian food. This however is not the case, with Russian and Arabic fare featuring instead. Although very simply decorated and unassuming, the cheap food at this restaurant is definitely not to be sniffed at. It is in fact some of the tastiest Russian food around. The vareniki (stuffed dumpling) with sweet cheese was moreish to the point where you wish you had ordered another plateful, and riba pro-Russki (hammour encased in potato, dill and egg) was a homemade delight, if not a tad rich.

These two dishes are particular highlights, and are just a couple of reasons for making you want to return to this restaurant. The Arabic options available were the same as you would expect anywhere else. Nothing particularly stood out and was exactly what you would find in any haunt in Dubai. So if you do pay this place a visit then opt for the Russian options solely, as it is rare to get such tasty food, all for under a hundred dirham note for two. We say you should definitely give this restaurant a try.
