This pocket-friendly restaurant located next to the Infiniti showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road serves delicacies that bring a taste of Pakistan to Dubai. Here is the Bundoo Khan review:
Appetizers: The appetizers are set on the table before Iftar; two vegetable samosas and a plate full of potato pakoras. In terms of flavour, they both fared well, but they would have been whopping if they had been served hot. We were also served fruit salad and chaat, which were average.
Entrees: The main course consisted of Chicken Biryani, Boneless Chicken Handi, Dal, and a Mixed Kebab Platter which consisted of spicy minced chicken kebab, behari kebab, and Malai chicken.
The kebab platter was the stand-out dish of the evening, served with hot naan fresh out of the oven. As far as Biryani goes, while we had high expectations, we thought it would have done well with just a tad more seasoning.
Dessert: The meal ended with a plate of BK Special Halwa, which was basically Soogi Halwa. While it didn’t quite look appetising, the mix of sweet combined with a hint of spice saved the dish. The hot chai we were served with dessert was great.
Ambience and Service:
Although not quite spacious, the show runners have taken the effort to decorate the interiors with mirrors which make it look bigger, with showpieces that add a spot of colour. The service staff was pleasant and we have no complaints there.
All in all, a good quick-bite affordable option for traditional Pakistani Food.
