The Dubai Diaries: Gazebo

Located at: Deira City Center, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Visited on: 29th March, 2022

Gazebo’s a spot that we sometimes visited or ordered from for a bit of North Indian cuisine during our Dubai days. On this particular visit, we started off with some Subzi Samosa (AED 17.50) – i.e., their vegetable samosa. The appetiser arrived hot and crusty, and went well with the mint chutney that they served along with it.

For our mains we went with a mix of biryani and naan. We had some Plain Naan (AED 6) on the day, which was served warm and crisp. The fact that it was quite thin and easy to break made it enjoyable to eat with the curry that we ordered. (We did try their garlic and butter naan on a subsequent day and these, too were pretty good.)

To go with the naan, we ordered a portion of Murgh Maskawala – butter chicken (AED 37.50). This was delicious. The gravy was spot on and the chicken, too, was nice and tender. This dish with the naan would make a great meal on any given day.

Our choice of biryani was Jhinga Masala Biryanigaram masala prawn biryani (AED 49), which came in a clay pot sealed with bread. The prawns were nicely done – crunchy and seasoned with the masala flavour. However, I felt like the rice dish as a whole lacked a bit of character. So, between the two, I would definitely recommend Gazebo’s naan over their biryani.

Their fresh juices – we tried pomegranate and pineapple, and salted lassi were good. Fresh, unsweetened and not watered down.

Overall, Gazebo’s menu offers a wide array of Indian dishes that are great value for money.
