Discovered Bheemas Restaurant’s new location by chance. They were previously located on Kuwait Street, Karama next to Snow White, when you go towards the Karama Post Office from Karama Centre. Then they vanished from my radar.
They are now located in a much smaller location but doing bigger business! They are located inside a shopping complex on the side of Karama Park, opposite Lulu Centre…the side near the roundabout, going towards Saravana Bhavan restaurant.
When Ponnusamy restaurant had a Karama branch, we had been there a few times. But in 2009, they had relocated to Qusais. Finally, dropped in there and had a taste of their spicy tamizh cuisine!
Their Nandu soup (crab soup) served piping hot was quite delicious and soothed my sore throat (there seems to be some kind of of a cold flu circulating – could be because of the transition to summer). Starters were “Chicken Lollipop” – kid’s favourite…can rate it as a good!
We had ordered Kal dosai (thick dosas), parathas and chapatis to go with the naatu kozhi kozhambu (country chicken curry) – excellent… and finished off with ‘naatu kozhi’ biryani…all were quite good!
Here is their home delivery menu (there are 6 page you can view as a slide show below it a larger version of the pages to browse through):
A small cosy place tucked away in one end of old Karama. One thing that was quite good about their menu was that they had taken diet and health conscious customers into consideration.
Their wheat and ragi dosas are one example.
The other is the “Satthu Unavu” (health food) – it’s a meal package consisting of 2 Sukka Rotis (Non-0ily chapatis-Indian bread) served with a Dal (lentils curry) with less oil, salt and spices..along with a veg and fruit salad.
Tried the food there, the first time yesterday. Loved the Wheat Dosas and the Sathu Unavu meal (refer menu).
The other regular fare which my family had tried out (and I tasted them too) were quite good:
- Channa Batura (Big Puri – deep fried Indian bread served with Channa – chickpeas curry)
- Kothu Paratha (or porotta as pronounced in Tamil:) – Scrambled paratha – another form of Indian bread – fried with vegetables),
- Ghee Roast Dosa
- Fried Idlis.
We were first introduced to Sivestar when their packaged Idli and Dosa Mavu (batter) appeared on supermarket shelves….and then their restaurants opened. They also have a grocery store in Karama (refer flyer below for contact number).
We’ve been to the Sivestar restaurants a number of times and have enjoyed their delicious tamil fare.
Even met the owner, Mr. Govindraju I think, once outside the restaurant some years back. Heard he was employed in Dubai before he started the Sivestar venture…and today they are a big group. Just now googled him and came across their website. Quite a commendable vision! Wishing them more growth and success in their vision of serving Dubai with quality Tamil fare.
