My cravings for authentic Pakistani food ends here! Love their chicken kebab curry with roomali roti and salad. Comfort food to the soul! The roomali roti is light, fresh, served hot and one of the best I have had in dubai. This place might bot have the ambience or crowd but definitely has good food! For vegetarians wondering what could... More

In the area near my hotel (Royal Creek Garden) there were no restaurants to feast in. After having travelled Makkah and Medina, trying out all the local dishes, our Indian taste buds were missing our desi food. The first night in the Dubai, our friends recommended this place to us. We ordered their famous haleem, and believe me it was... More

Quite bad. Expectations were similar to Ravi & Eagle, however, this one was disastrous. Unpalatable food & stuff debited which we never asked for but they served on their own without checking. I can't visit them ever again.

Many variety of Mughlai, Indian & Pakistani tasty dishes to enjoy at relatively cheaper prices & with quick delivery. Fresh & Hot Tandoor roti, nan, paya, haleem, Nihari & kadhai ghost / chicken etc are worth trying.

I absolutely love this place. Whenever I go to Bur Dubai I have to go to this place. The Haleem is to die for. Everytime I go to Karachi Darbar I always order Haleem and some other dish. My visit is incomplete if I go to Karachi Darbar and don't have Haleem. Recommend to have with roti.The service and staff... More

tastless food, poor service - simply avoid this as this resturant seems to cater for clientel who have no idea what Pakistani food is about, my advice try out PAk Ghazi

the prices are on a higher side but the waiter (forgot his name, the guy was probably from Peshawar) won our hearts. so polite and well mannered!! they don't provide free drinking water, you'll have to buy and drink

The starters are okay but the main courses leave a lot to be desired. The chicken is pre cooked and added to the dish you order so tastes rubbery and they charge you for things you don't order like water..salad etc

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
