One of the best Pakistani Restaurants in Dubai Mix grill was mouthwatering and the Kadhai was one of the best.

Heard a lot of good about this Pakistani restaurant. Wanted to try their breakfast for which we had stayed in Dubai. Unfortunately we reached late there like by 12 and all of their breakfast was finished by that time. So we were left with the...option of lunch items. We ordered daleem and a Punjabi samosa from them. They had a sitting place but we preferred for take away. Daleem was good in taste and so was samosa. Would love to try their desi nashta for which we have heard a lot. One thing to mention that their naan (bread) are a must have. So tender, soft and yummy. They were a definite try.More

First time here and it was ok. Serves Pakistani dishes which quite similar to Indian dishes. I order chicken (boneless) tikka biryani. The rice was dry and lacking the flavour of biryani spices, you need to eat it with the masala sauce which was very...spicy but tasty. The BBQ boneless chicken was very delicious and tasty. They also serve a small portion of salad, yoghurt, and chatney. In general it’s fine and on the budget meals.More

Good place to eat with family. Lots of choices for Pakistani and Indian cuisine and delicious grilled beef and chicken choices with fish and prawns. I tried Chicken Karahi that was worth trying it. Will be happy to visit this place again.

Whenever I wanna eat Pakistan food, Karachi Darbar is the place. We tried the one in Al Qusais. Ordered Peshawari Mutton Kadai and roti. Firstly it took long to serve the food and the taste and quality was not up to the expectations. The quality...has dropped. Also they started charging for simple salad and the raitha, which was part of the main course. Unfortunately the experience was not great. Hope they will improve and looking forward for a nice experience next time.More

Went to their Oud Metha Outlet. Plenty of paid parking available around the restaurant. One should be ready to walk at-least some distance. Not accessible on a wheelchair! Great grilled food and Kebabs. They offer reasonably priced combo meals which can be consumed by an...individual or be shared between two persons. We ordered Chicken Lollypops and Mutton Seekh Kebabs with Tandoori rotis and raitas to start with. They were tasty and the Mutton Seekhs were aromatic and juicy. This was followed by Mixed Grill Platter combo - served with daal, curry, Biryani rice and raita and a can of Pepsi. In the end they served the piping hot Gulab Jamun which added another feather in the cap. The service was quick and courteous and we had finished our dinner and were out of the restaurant in less than an hour. Cost wise it is not very expensive. Should be visited once.More

If you want to taste some of the best Indian/Pakistani food in Dubai this is the place. The food is so good I went twice! The place is quite far from jbr but I was recommended by a friend to visit here, am I glad...I made the journey. Yes!! This food is how it should be. Don’t expect no 5 star establishment. The place is clean and the food is just heavenly. Being a chef myself I can say if you’re around Dubai and fancy some proper desi food get over there. The prices are basically free. You can afford to give the bill amount as tips that’s how cheap I found it to be. Consider the fact that I’ve been paying £10/12 for a scoop of ice cream in Dubai mall, bottles of water for 25ahd in the resort I’m staying you can have a whole meal for the same price. Well done do the chefs in this place for keeping the taste authentic. Support this place by visiting!More

it is a very cheap restaurant (spaciali for dubai prices) and the food is very tasty, my husband and I love it! we always order Mutton Peshawari and Butter Chicken with 1 plain rice and 2 plain naan either for est in, take away or...delivery. It is not healty so no more than once a month, the mutton is very spicy hot, so if you´re not used to it better go for the chicken. the cleaness is regular to poor and the staff are nice in general but not very good with service.More

Very good food. Specially if you are a big fan of oily and unhealthy but very testy food. Spectate space for family. Nice staff. On a very busy day don't expect 100% from customer care but food remains the same way. Enjoy
