One For The Royals – Nayaab Haandi

Have you ever been to a restaurant, where the interiors look like you’re in a palace? Or a place where the staff treat you like royalty, and you feel that you can just sit and eat forever?

This is exactly how I felt when I was sitting in Nayaab Haandi. Offering a Mughlai cuisine, this restaurant is located in Satwa, Dubai. One thing I have to appreciate about them, is how they’ve worked with so well with the inner decor. The whole theme isΒ elegant, something that I’m a big fan of.

After we were seated and our glasses filled, we were served a rather large roti on a skewer with a mutton handi on the side. A platter with fries, fried fish and cheese naan was also brought to our table. Before we could even start with these, a live grill with various types of kebabs was kept in front of us. And these were just the starters!

Though the handi had a bit too much oil, I enjoyed having it with the roti. The platter was loved by all. The cheese naan was a favourite on the table and we licked the plate clean in no time. Coming to the mixed grill, these consisted of fish tikka, malai tikka, green boti and seekh kebab chicken. These kebabs were heavenly! The pieces of meat were succulent and juicy. I preferred the fried fish to the tikka as I found it a bit dry, but the other tikkas were devoured.

Next, we had a huge buffet to try. Nayaab Haandi tried to mix some of Indian, Pakistani cuisine and also add in fried rice and chicken manchurian.

While I loved the consistency of the Haleem andΒ the flavourful biryani with spices, sadly the Chinese was a miss.

For dessert, there were options of Gulaab Jamun, Ras Malai, two types of kheer, Gajar ka Halwa and Fruit Custard. Ah! The joys of attending buffets, with so many varieties, that lets you have something of everything.

My favourites had to be the Gajar ka Halwa. The sweetness was just the right amount and it wasn’t too heavy on the ghee like some places do. The Ras Malai won a close second.

All in all, Nayaab Handi offers a nice place to come to with family, where you have helpful staff and good Indian Pakistani food. They also have private dining areas and take party offers. Being a buffet only place, it is quite pocket friendly to host large gatherings, which makes it perfect for Eid.

Eid Mubarak to one and all! May your Eid be as wonderful and joyous as ever. πŸ˜€

Until next time. xx
