“Run of the mill from peppermill!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

You don't expect much from a restaurant located in a supermarket.
But on entering the restaurant you feel like you are entering a restaurant in some 5 star hotel. The decor feels grandiose and opulent fit for a king. And unfortunately for peppermill that's the only saving grace. The food leaves much to be desired. We opted for the buffet, while the non vegetarian options were ok, the vegetarian options were an unimpressive run of the mill fare with only the dal makhni being the saving grace.
Even the rice seemed raw as it was chewy in parts. Desserts were no better either and had artificial flavours mostly due to the use of some essences.
At the price you pay, You'd expect something better. But over here your just paying for the extravagance.

“Fine Indian Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Peppermill restaurant have good Indian food and provide decent menu options.
Service is top-class. Your food is prepared fresh with fresh ingredients as Lulu hypermarket is adjacent to it!
I could only wish them to offer a better Biryani and reduce their prices a bit so as to qualify for better ratings.

“Colonial Peppermill!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The beautiful Indian Colonial influence of his restaurant just has to be seen! Private cubicles are enticing . Attentive staff explained the menu and gave suggestions . Started with garlic or plain naan and their accompaniments and progressed from there! The potato green pea patties are great starters with chutney. Mains we had leg of lamb, Sikandari Raan -spicy and delicious and a Malabari fish cury in coconut milk. A vegetarian spinach , garlic, onion dish was excellent also. The coffee flavoued Desi Tiramisu with saffron pistachio was a great finish with green tea. Manager visited table enquiring if we has enjoyed our meals . Good parking, upstairs in Lu lu's Hypermarket , Al Barsha, Dubai. Prices quite reasonable. Check out the world's largest Peppermill.

“Very helpful staff, good food, moderate pricing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

While one really doesnt care that this restaurant has the world's biggest pepper mill, one would always return for the food. Having been there a few times, last winter, we went again on Saturday, April 6 for their lunch buffet. Priced at AED 70 per person, it offers a pretty good collection of chicken, seafood, meat, vegetable curries, biryani, and deserts. A good touch is their serving fresh Nans, Dal and Kebabs at your table. The spicing is perfect, temperature and food texture is good and the setting quite plush. The staff deserves special mention, they made us feel very welcomed and cared for. Their a la carte kebabs, mainly the seafood ones are remarkable.
