During a visit to a relative’s house in Sharjah, was treated to Chennai Biriyani. Being a flavoured rice lover, my taste buds loved it! Learnt that Chennai Biriyani had a restaurant in Dubai…so googled them and found their menu cards featured on AtnInfo.com…cool!
AtnInfo.com has implemented a scanned restaurant menu cards database on a large scale, what I similarly had tried on a small scale in 2006 on KaramaStuff.com, UseUae.com and recently here on UaeTamil.com (screen shot from their website).
Do visit them to access a comprehensive database of scanned restaurant menus in Dubai.
Aryaas Restaurant, I think first started out in Karama in 2006. A good place for vegetarian south Indian fare. In 2011, they have started a upmarket branch opposite Bur Juman mall in the Bank Street (Khalid Bin Waleed street). In this Bur Dubai branch, I love the Ragi Dosas and Wheat Dosas..healthy bites! In the Karama branch, they had bajra rotis…healthier options are now creeping into restaurant menus – a good sign!
I could only find their old menu…will put up a newer version if I get one.
Sangeetha Restaurant, personally to me, provides fantastic quality south Indian food. Their Chettinad Mini Tiffin is quite exemplary. Even the normal menu when served has got a brightness about it:)
Since there is quite a substantial Tamil population (not sure of an exact figure) in the United Arab Emirates, there are quite a number of associations and groups serving them. Googled and listing them here (at least those that I found) according to their Google rank:
