“Ravenous? come to Ravi's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This place is a great local haunt for locals and expats alike.
Best tables are outside.. inside is too bright. Perfect for a causal Authentic Indian meal at a great price. No Alcohol is served, but the food is excellent which is why you should go. The portions are generous and fast.

“very good quality and VERY low price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

A local restaurant in an area with a lot of similar restaurants. We are a familiy of 4 and had dinner for DHS 118. Got 5 main courses, plenty of rice and nan. Very good quality and we couldnt eat it all since there was so much food. Definately a place to go to if you like food from India/Pakistan. Dont expect a cosy candlelight dinner but good quality well tasting food at a basic place

“Good cheap and quick food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This place is in Al Karama. Its a nice simple looking restaurant but the food was nice and authentic. I think i've never been served food so quickly after ordering it, and not that it wasn't fresh. The food and all was good. There is one thing I noticed that i did not like, they kept salad, raita and water on the table as if its complementary but they charge you for it on the bill, the amount was small so we did not mind. But thats something I did not like about it other than that its good.

“Have you been Ravi'ed recently?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We always take our visitors to this place to eat as it is not only excellent value for superb tasting food, wonder warm service from the old retainers and atmospheric, but it represents a link to the old Dubai.Basic but functional with pavement area as well as air-conditioned rooms. I first went to Ravi's back in 1981 when it was essentially a shack serving food under a Ghaff tree for truckers hauling fruit and veg from Jordan down to the UAE. Since then it has grown to be re-knowned for providing an excellent meal,Chcken Tikka Spicy being a favourite with a salad and fresh baked Naan bread ...absolute magic! Also highly recommended are the Butter Chicken, & Mutton Jalfrezi. When the weather is still cool and dry enough get a table outside (noisy traffic going past is part of the whole atmosphere as 4x4's queue for their take-aways!) From here you can see the cooks slaving over the hot charcoals doing the kebabs and spit roasted chickens! Watch the world go by and take in the atmosphere of Dubai from the past ... it may not be around forever if the planners and municipality get their way! Not licensed however when eating here in the centre of town with the real people that is not even worth worrying about! So get RAVI'ed tonight!!
