I personally love Indian and Pakistani food so this was a treat for me. Wouldn't recommend it for everyone as it is an authentic dining experience with mostly large tables where everyone eats together. But the food was tasty, plentiful and served fast for a decent value.

We have been going on and off since 2002! Sit outside in the warm evening and eat like a king for the price of a pauper. It is perhaps not as good or as tasty as it once was, this goes up and down with the chef in the kitchens, I think. Dinner for 2 with soft drinks came out... More

Would you take your wife on her anniversary - not if you want to save your marriage! Any other day of the week this place is superb. CHEAP, good, fast restaurant food!! The restaurant has no ambiance and there is nothing of quality in the furniture or fittings. However if you want a really good meal that costs next to... More

This is one of my favorite spot when somebody is visiting me in Dubai. But you have to know what to expect: tasty food for ridiculous bill. Stop. No service, location recently renewed but a bit rustic, approximate cleaning (but never have any problem with the food). Love cheese naan and the different ways of chicken: zera, corma, ginger and...

We arrived in dubai quite late and decided to explore and fine somewhere to eat. We had read about ravi's and took a taxi there. We were the only western people there which can feel a little intimidating but we were welcomed, seated and made to feel at ease. The waiter helped us with our choice and recommended a few... More

Best Pakistani I have ever eaten. And, likely also the cheapest as well. I had the buttered chicken, cheese naan and rice – everything was fantastic. I’m shocked that some are writing about the health conditions and cleanliness. What do you expect? This is cheap Pakistani food in the working class neighborhood. Even the cab drivers call it “good and... More

A colleague who often visits Dubai insisted that we drive across town, away from the expensive Western style restaurants, to visit this wonderful restaurant that serves authentic Pakistani dishes. And he was right, suberb tastes served up at ridiculous prices. OK, the setting (unless you get a seat at the one room styled for tourist tastes) is simple, but people... More

As we were looking at getting something to eat, I could recall the taxi driver telling me about Ravi's, so I thought why not. The food is excellent, i could not fault it and i really enjoyed the experience. The exterior does not look too great but the food makes up for it. The prices are not expensive and a... More

When I first ate at Ravi's, I was told that it had been voted the best curry house in the Middle East. So I was a surprised when I got there - it's not very clean and it doesn't look all that great but the food is amazing and costs next to nothing! By far the best curry house I've... More

I have been in Dubai 20 years but went to Ravi's for the first time this month. First with a group of girl friends after scouring the fabric shops in Satwa. We had a filling meal and still only paid just Dh89 for all of it! I took my husband and son back the following weekend and ordered pretty much... More
