Great food

Enjoyed the food, had a delivery Every second day. The food was authentic and tasty cooked with good flavours. Wasn't too keen on the naan bread want the average flat naan bread, but the tandoori Chapstis went nice with the curries

Interesting menu, amazing food. Very authentic and distinct flavors in every dish. Always make sure I go there when I'm in Dubai. Great value for money.

Was missing some good wholesome home cooking.....and was advised this was the place to go for authentic Desi roti.... Good solid food served quickly and well cooked. Don't expect top of the range presentation but do expect top quality food cooked as you would at home... The Paneer Bhurji was outta this world along with the butter chicken..... Well worth... More

This restaurant is something of a legend amongst ex-pats in Dubai. Having read the reviews, we were keen to try it out. If you are looking for good, hearty meal on a budget, this is the place to go. They offer a wide range of Indian and Pakistani dishes, to suit most tastes. The food is delicious and portions are... More

We were looking forward to a return visit to Ravi's and it didn't disappoint. Really love this place and the food is so tasty. Prices are reasonable so a great venue if you want to share several dishes. Butter chicken, butter nan and plain nan, salad, rice, mutton jalfrezi, chicken handi and chicken biryani were thoroughly enjoyed by us all.... More

I am so pleased we went to Satwa as I got the feeling that I was in the real Dubai. No glamour not a high heel to been seen. Plastic chairs and a box of tissues on each table. Its all about the experience. Lots of butchers fabric shops and really cheap clothes shops. I got a dress for around... More

If you want to experience everything that Dubai has to offer, then come here. It's far from fine dining but if it's good quality food without any pretense that you are seeking, then this is the place for you. We'd kept it simple with the Biryani (one chicken and the other meat), a Paneer Masala curry (vegetarian), Nan bread and... More

We'd seen all the on-line reviews and thought we would try it. What can I say, its a bustling restaurant full of locals with food that's very tasty and its sensible prices. I've been to Dubai a number of times and was always shocked by the fact that all restaurants seemed to be expensive but this not. We two loverly... More

Went in August 2015 with family, and everyone enjoyed a regular Pakistani Meal. Enjoyed the Peshawari Kadai Chicken, and the Daal. Very Tasty. The Mutton and Chicken Tikka were ok, nothing to shout about. If I were to visit again, I would only order the curries. Ordered a fair amount for a family of six (3 kids), and the bill... More
