Great sheekh kebab

This is one of the most famous pakistani restaurant in dubai and people from all walks of life visit here. They have amazing kebabs and mughlai dishes. Their seekh kebab is the best and a must try. The other stuff is good too and very cheap. The service is a bit sub par given that they are so... read more

Had to try this place as I've heard nothing but rave reviews. It's really a place that used to have obscure status which it has no longer due to the throngs of people that go there. Always busy, good and tasty portions and super cheap. Brought back my own childhood memories of Satwa and the immigrants which are UAE's lifeline.

Food was awesome. The afghani pilau was the best! The daal and mutton pishawari was also delicious. Very fast service, didn't have to wait too long for the food to arrive.

This restaurant was recommended when we asked for one that locals went to not glitzy crowed tourist restaurant. If you want fancy this is not the place for you. It is what I would call a "dive" with great food. It is way less than fancy. No frills here including the dinnerware so if bothers you skip it. The staff... More

It was an experience: some parts of the experience was great, some parts were solidly “meh”. The 'reservation system' for the sidewalk tables was as follow: Stand as close as you can to the table you want while people are eating. Smoke, talk loudly on your cell phone, tap your foot, and sigh audibly when the people at the table... More

This was a terrible experience! I was drawn here after reading the reviews. Don't get me wrong... Have no problem with poor decor, sloppy service and crappy loos but i expected the food to phenomenal! It was nowhere close!! Khana Khazana in Meena Bazaar does a much meaner, honest curry! Disappointed to say the least.

We had a good time opposite burjman shopping centre, eatung the pakistani food. Good variety of food- we had the mixed groll and some lamm meat and salads. For the kids it was an idea too spicy, for the adults just right.
