“Surprising Hotel Dubai Restaurant”
Review of Dubai Hotel

Dubai Hotel
Ranked #5 of 16 Restaurants in Kumarakom
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 9, 2014

After hailing a tuktuk when our stroll along the Kumarakom canals didn't result in finding a coffee shop, the tuktuk driver hurtled us along through cows and traffic to the front door of the Dubai Hotel & Restaurant, where we thought all we'd get was an ice cream to cool us down. The menu turned out to be so enticing that we ordered dinner instead. The back porch looks out onto an inlet of Lake Vembanad, and so the passing fishing boats and families travelling to and fro by water were a great accompaniment to a delicious dinner. We ordered chappaty and parotta - two favorite Indian breads, and Neymeen Biryani, our first fish dinner in India. Along with vegetable khorma it made for a perfect meal. Neymeen is also known as "king" fish, and it was a firm, white fleshed, reasonably strong tasting fish, perfect with the rice and spices of the traditional biryani. Prices were incredibly reasonable (cheap), and there were many locals eating dinner as well, along with watching the cricket match! Always a good sign when there are plenty of non-tourists enjoying dinner alongside you...

The hotel is on the other side of Kumarakom., the one which Tourists avoid and mostly the locals visit.
And hence, the taste is more localised rather than altered to suit Tourists.
The restaurant has a sit out with the River flowing beside and offers a soothing experience.
The Food is heavily spiced and could be done with less oil.
But still the taste lingers long after you have your tummy filled.
My bill was inflated with Mineral Water and extra rotis but was corrected on me pointing the same.
So, check your bill before paying up!!
