“Star Restaurant, Banani, Dhaka, Bangladesh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

'Star' has a number of eateries in their restaurant chain all over Dhaka city. The one in Banani has to be the best, in my opinion. It is located in the residential-commercial area of Banani just off Ataturk Avenue. It is continuously busy throughout the opening hours between 6am to past midnight. Delicious food consisting mostly of Bangladeshi & Mughal cuisine. It is inexpensive, service is excellent & quick. Breakfast may set you back by Taka 60 only--that's about $ 0.75. Lunch or dinner , depending on what you order, will cost Taka 80 to 150 & upwards. Frequented mostly by young people as the area is surrounded by colleges & universities; as well as older people from the surrounding offices & shops and other visitors. A place to go to for having economical, mouth-watering 'deshi' food with an informal ambiance. Cleanliness may not be that great nor the hygiene, but I suppose tolerable, depending on your standard & outlook.

“Authentic Old Dhaka Food at Affordable Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

If you want to test some authentic Old Dhaka traditional food at a very affordable price then this is the best restaurant. They have 3 or 4 branches conveniently located around the city. Best ones are at Dhanmondi and Banani. They are famous for their Kabab and Ramadan Iftar items.

Try the Friday morning breakfast if you are a real lover of Indian food.

“Tasty affordable local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Best place for mutton leg roast, Biriyani and khichuri. Also all their fish items during lunch are so mouth water and so very authentic Bangladeshi food. Took a foreigner friend there for lunch, he kept on talking about it months to come. We friends used to celebrate birthdays here for 6 years from 2001 to 2006. And every month since 2009 to 2012 September, I had dinner at least once there. A place too close to heart, through memory and food both.
