Curry and Kebab Festival
Located in the food court of Al Bustan Centre, Al Qusais. Here’s a dine-in spot you shouldn’t miss out on. Another reason to check out this place besides the delicious aromatic food served here is the Curry and Kebab Festival which serves spectacular Curry and Kebab dishes for a limited period only.
It is quite spacious with a good amount of seating. The area resonates a causal vibe of sorts as its inside the food court.
Out the drool worthy items listed on their promotional menu, we chose the following:
1. Butter Chicken: Our favorite curry option this evening. Chunks of chicken cooked in a rich and creamy gravy with that hint of sweetness which is a must for a butter chicken dish. A great combo when paired with soft naans. Recommend this one!
2. Lamb Kadhai: This gravy dish was cooked in a home style seasoning. The masala in which the meat was cooked stood out from an ordinary kadhai served elsewhere. The meat here was juicy and not too dry. A great option for a hearty lunch.
We were also served a platter of all the grill items on the menu which consisted of:
• Tandoori Shrimps: Juicy shrimps cooked to perfection in the typical tandoori masala. The flavors were on point. Not too spicy and not too bland either.
• Hammour Tikka: Yummy! This is one of our favorite fish to eat and Al Teaba did complete just to the dish. Loved the texture of the fish and great flavor too. Another must try!
• Murgh Reshmi Kebab: Creamy pieces of delicious chicken! Totally recommending this too. It was cooked perfectly with that melt in your mouth texture which we relished!
• Seekh Kebab: Perfectly grilled mutton seekh kebabs that were a great combination with the mint chutney. The mint chutney was fresh and took the grills taste to another level.
• Mutton Boti Kebab: Unfortunately, this was a miss, the meat was slightly under-cooked so had a chewy texture, but the flavors were spot on.
• Vegetable Tandoori Kebab: Out of the grill vegetables, we got to try the paneer and mushrooms. The paneer was well seasoned and grilled perfectly with that delicious crispy exterior and still soft on the inside. The mushrooms were out of this world. The taste is just too good to boil it down in words. You will just have to taste it to know what we’re talking about.
All the items listed comes with option of rice/naan, sweet/salted lassi and a complimentary papad and mint chutney.
We were greeted by Ms. April who was beyond pleasant and a great company to have. The service was quick, and the staff were very hospitable.
Since the Festival lasts until February 2nd 2019, we suggest giving the place a try especially the recommended items above.
