Daily Dubai Restaurant Review by Sadaf Farooqui
Located on street 10 in Badar Commercial Area, in Defence phase 5, almost off main Saba Avenue, is the recently inaugurated Daily Dubai Restaurant. It is right next to the famous Meerath Kabab House that has also opened recently next to Dandee's Chaat and Fruit Juices on the same corner.
The restaurant occupies the entire 4-storey commercial building. The owners seem to have left no stone unturned in investing in the decor and ambience of the restaurant. We were surprised to spot these security video cameras installed on every floor. Even the elevator was top-notch, with audio announcements of the floors. Families are usually seated on the first floor and up. The wall-mounted plasma television sets were showing a World Cup match on the night we dined here, as the transfixed gazes of the restaurant's staff demonstrate.
The fare on offer is typical Pakistani cuisine, at the same rates as any other good restaurant located in Defence, Karachi. I must say that the quality of the restaurant is laudable, from the ambience, to the decor and technology in use, to the complete lack of spelling errors in the menu! :) Daily Dubai is famous for its paye, but on our first visit, we were in the mood for simple Beef Nihari, which did not disappoint one bit! Priced at Rs 200 per serving, it was more than enough for two people. The traditional accompaniments of Nihari: lemons, chopped ginger and green chillies.Mutton trotters (Bakray ke paye) for Rs 300, photographed on a subsequent visit.
The kheer was amazing, at just Rs 40 per two katora's. Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Ice Cream, priced at Rs 40 per scoop.Traditional kulfi priced at just Rs 50 was a wonderful sweet treat!Recently, Daily Dubai started Sunday breakfast - the usual desi halwa puri fare.I must say that the Sunday Breakfast was a huge hit! It is served till 4 p.m every Sunday. Each and every item that we ordered was delicious, especially the puri's. Also, the prices were very reasonable for the quantity and quality of the dishes.
Eating here has become a regular feature for our family by now. Highly recommended!
