This Pakistani restaurant is located in a beautiful space overlooking the lakes in JLT. The service and ambiance are definite advantages to the place as the staff takes special effort to help you through the menu. We always welcome suggestions from the server when placing the order coz who better than them to guide you through.
I am quite used to eating Indian cuisine but didn’t know that Pakistani cuisine, even though quite similar, has its own nuances in style and flavour that set it apart from ours. We tried a couple of dishes from their menu and here’s what we thought about it.
Get Set Gobble
~ Lahori Fish – If you are a fan of crispy and tangy this is a must have when you visit this place. The fish was so soft, it literally melted in your mouth. The kebabs were fried to crispy perfection and the hint of lime squeezed on top gave it the perfect punch of zing.
~ Mutton seekh kebab – Saying that these kebabs are juicy is an understatement! Succulent minced meat grilled to perfection, this is the ultimate seekh kebab for all foodies out there. You will be licking your fingers, spoons, forks..everything! 😛 Actually we’d go as far as to say that this place has become my number #1 spot to eat these kebabs at as no one does them so perfectly like them!
~ Handi chicken – We all love our boneless chicken curries and this dish certainly did justice. The chicken was served in a handi on top of a makeshift stove to keep it warm. We had high hopes and the dish did not fail to deliver. Even though it wasn’t too high on spice, it had the perfect blend of subtle flavours that went oh so well with their naan.
~ Lachedar parantha & Garlic naan – No meal is complete without the perfect breads to accompany the mouth watering curries. Their laccha parantha was just perfect and we were loving its size as well! The familiar garlic naan gets a little twist to make something delicious. It isn’t the traditional naan we are used to having in India and I really enjoyed this flavoured bread that paired really well with the curry.
~ Gajar ka halwa – How can you not end such a decadent meal on a sweet note. A bowl of their gajar halwa is the perfect dessert. A clever way to try all the desserts was to order half portions of two and a full of one. We obviously went in for the whole portion of the halwa coz we knew we would fall in love with it..and we did!!
~ Gulab jamun – We all love to savour these delicious treats. They were warm and soft and I particularly loved the fact that it was garnished with chopped almonds.
~ Shahi kheer – A sweet rice dessert, this was a delicious treat with the addition of nutty crunch of almonds. However the other two were definite favourites in comparison.
The portion sizes are are a bit small but the dishes, though a tad pricey, are definitely worth trying.

😍Handi chicken served with Garlic naan @littlelahoreuae 💁🏼I have recently found an amazing 🍴restaurant in JLT serving up some lip smacking 👉🏻Desi cuisine. The curry had tender ✔️boneless cubes of chicken cooked in a mildly spicy 🍅tomato gravy. What I liked most was the 💖naan that was so flaky and flavourful👌🏻👌🏻 Price: AED 35 & AED 8 . . #grubafare #grubgoddess #getsetgobble #l4l #like4like #instadaily #f4f #foodblogger #foodie #instafood #foodporn #foodgasm #eeeeeats #foodphotography #DubaiFoodBlogger #picoftheday #yummy #follow4follow #instagood #nomnom #MyDubai #likesforlikes #foodaholic #dubaifoodie #dubaiblog #tastedubai #instadubai #thingstodoindubaicity #dubaifood #dubaibloggers
