It’s amazing how conversations lead to beautiful discoveries.
Over coffee the other day, one topic led to another and a friend recommended we try an Indian restaurant called Jaipur in Downtown Burj Khalifa, that not only served good food but shisha too. I made a mental note to visit them when the weather cools down.
But little did I know then that in a spontaneous dinner plan the following day, Jaipur would be the chosen destination.
There’s something very comforting in going to your favorite restaurant but there’s something quite adventurous in discovering a new, a nice one.
The ambiance at Jaipur was authentic Indian with lovely indoor and outdoor seating options, the latter offering stunning views of The Dubai Mall Fountain and the Burj Khalifa.
What I liked most about the place was its signature drink, Masala Medley, made of Kala Khata syrup, Sprite, soda, green chilies and chaat masala. Amazing. Sweet and tangy and spicy. It kinda set the right tone for the dinner ahead :)
The vegetarian menu options although nothing fancy, were nice and flavorsome. The staff were very friendly and the order took about 20 minutes to arrive. This could also be because the restaurant wasn’t busy.
I liked the way the kebabs were served. Smoking hot.
Budget wise, Jaipur’s medium priced. You can use the Time Out City Card to get a 15 per cent discount on the bill or Gulf News Good Living vouchers that offer one complimentary main course for one main course ordered (P.S.: Good Living vouchers only valid until 30 September 2010).
Jaipur is located in Burj Residences Phase-1, Downtown Burj Khalifa. For further inquiries contact them at 04-4226767.
