Default Best Curry In Dubai

Well we've had best pizza and best burger - allthough that debate still rages.

So I nominate 2

either..

a) Ravi's in Satwa, love it, so tasty and so cheap

and

b) Karachi in Karama, again, really good and if you spend more than 4 quid, you're a pig!

But for me the gong goes to Ravi's - mainly cos I can walk there....

I'm sure we've one this conversation before!

Coconut Groove at Rydges Plaza.

The little place in the square in front of Lamcy is good for Murg Makhani, the Dahl Mackhani in Coconut Grove is amazing...

Alternatively buy this book and cook your own:

50 Great Curries by Camellia Panjabi

Really - if you want to learn how to make amazing curries this is the book...

Are you sure Coconut Grove makes good Dal Makhani I think you mean Sanjay's which is next to Lemon Grass (Lamcy Area) - they make very good dal makhani.

Coconut Grove is good for Malabari/South Indian cuisine.

Not the same as back home, but the Indian at Marina is not bad and reasonably priced as well. Don't get a takeaway though .. just not the same as eating in.

yup - I mean Coconut Grove - I know that it is mainly Malabar, Goa, Sri Lanka etc - but they do an amazing Dahl Makhani too. Lots of Gobi Masala and Aloo Gobi too... which are not traditionally from these areas right? (I am probably wrong on this!)

Same as with Coca Cola - much better out of a glass bottle than a can.

I'm not really sure .. maybe they use a diff company for the deliveries

I can't understand it, maybe because it loses heat? But much nicer when you eat in there.

The plastic containers they use is made of very cheap material - so probably leaves a smell/taste of plastic due to the hot contents. I noticed that food in delivered in foil containers by some restaurants tasted almost the same (provided the food didn't get cold).
