“Authentic Local Experience, experience Emirati Food at it's best at this restaurant located in the old town of Dubai. Some consider this to be the soul of Dubai, the area it's in is also packed with lots of cafes and art galleries. This is a must. ”

“Glide along Dubai Creek and admire Dubai’s skyline over a gourmet dinner on this 2.5-hour ‘Bateaux Dubai’ evening cruise. You will pass top Dubai attractions including the Clock Tower and Al Maktoum Bridge, and enjoy a 3-course gourmet dinner serenaded by a pianist. Choose a selection of sodas to accompany your meal, or upgrade to a package of house wines and more.”

“For diehard Curry fans. Favourite dishes are chicken boti, chicken handi, mutton tika, daal and mutton kebab, and the bread is fresh, fluffy and hot. A whole family can eat for just over 100 dhms!”

Restaurant
“Iconic Dubai restaurant serving incredible but simple kebabs, curries and rice dishes. This is a casual family-owned restaurant that has been busy with Dubai residents for 40 years now. The walls are covered with photos of international, regional and local celebrities who have visited the place. The brothers who own the restaurant come from southern Iran & are always behind the cash register or running around - you will know them by how they are constantly joking/messing with customers. Their most popular menu item is the Beef Yoghurt Tikka skewers. Special tip: ask for the Tahdeeg with Meat Curry. It's not on the menu and they are picky about who they gave it to, but it's worth asking!”
