WHAT I ORDERED in Rajdhani street JLT, Dubai- Indian street food fusion –
Pizza Dhokla – A fusion food where pizza styled toppings are served on the Dhokla base. I loved the concept as it is healthier by avoiding the white pizza base and making the Dhokla more tastier. It comes in the starter section.
Rajasthani Cheese Mirch Vada – This is also a starter. Big Green chilies filled with cheese, spices and dipped in gram flour and then deep fried. This special spicy dish is really worth trying out. Also, I loved the plating and those cute miniature frying woks for mint and yogurt dips.
Hara Bhara Kebab – Kebabs made up of green vegetables served piping hot with interesting dips. In one bite I finished all. These all starters comes under Quick Bites.
Rajdhani Thali (available at Lunchtime) – Full Thali (steel plate) with many Indian curries, desserts, starter, rice and Indian bread. It is full meal even if you don’t order dessert and starter for one person.
Chilli Cheese Onion paratha – A stuffed Indian bread served right on Tava( Flat Iron Wok) accompanies with Black Lentils curry and again those cute dips in miniature woks.
Daal Bati Churma – Local authentic food from Rajasthan which is served on banana leaf, wooden tray, and brass vessels.
For Drinks, I ordered Kulkuli Sherbet(spicy drink), Mint coolant known as Hara Pudina Shikanji and Kairi Panna-raw mango drink which is sweet and sour. They have special glasses to serve them all. Some are in the shape of funnels, double glass or measuring cylinder from a chemistry laboratory. There drink glasses are very unique.
In Desserts I ordered Fruit Rabadi and Jalebi. They were so tempting that I could not even took photograph and finished in a moment.

Dubai has certainly taken Indian fusion cuisine to the next level with Rajdhani Street JLT. Since I like spicy food, those fried chilies are calling my name. I especially like the plating which makes this so much more special. What cute little pots for the sauces. Those lunch specials look like generous portions and you can try several things. Even the drinks are unique so great to order several to try. I like a restaurant that follows through on its theme with the decor but doesn’t forget about food quality and service.
I recently visited Dubai and so much wanted to try this place as have heard alot. Due to to the lack of time i could not visit. Good to see fusion of indian street food specially Pizza Dhokla.
wow I love Indian food. The food looks so delicious. I am going definitely try this street in Dubai. You have listed all my favorite food.
Thats a nice little review you’ve got there.I love Indian food, and crave for it specially when outside India. The dishes look yummy, and the plating looks appealing.
Yum, all these dishes look really good. I think I would love that Mango drink and would certainly be stuffed after a meal here.
its literally been a decade since we went to Dubai and I’m sure the food scene in the city has completely transformed since then. Looks like a foodie trail is on the cards for when we go next!
Yes Punita, now you would surely love food scene here
Oh that pizza looks Good!! & a spicy drink? I would have to pass!
All the food photos are making me hungry! The Pizza Dhokla looks like a very creative dish and looks so much healthier than the actual pizza 😛 I love all things spicy so that Kulkuli Sherbet definitely got my attention!
As I always say, when you’re away from home, a romantic date need not be somewhere exotic, but even a crowded restaurant that serves authentic food from your land is enough. This is that kinda place.
Mirch vada, Dhokla, Thali……………… I’m drooling right now and I’m getting very hungry…
I am a big fan of Indian food and finding the real flavors in a foreign country is something which is not usual. Am glad that being a Indian you loved the food here. Would definitely visit this place. Thanks for recommending
It’s interesting how they’ve created unique yet somehow familiar dishes through fusion – i’d like to try a pizza dhokla once just to know what it tastes like! I’m sure it must be a very popular eatery. I really liked how they’ve done their interiors. If I ever visit Dubai, I might just drop in here to taste some of their innovations!
Thanks Neha! Yes it is very popular though newly opened.
This looks amazing, I am so hungry staring at the food! I think the fusion would be nice and really want to try all these different palates. I also need more parathas in my life!
I’m loving those wall art! I’ve been to India on a short stay once and I really love the Thali (though I find the other curries too spicy for me). Seeing that large metal plate brings back happy tummy memories of India. I wish to visit Dubai, too and would bear this restaurant in mind should I finally get there.
Thanks Jing! It is great that you remembered metal plates – Thalis from India
Indian foods are also my favorite, and i admit that i should explore more this area. The spices are so good for my palate. Which of these are your best favorite?
I actually love Indian food, but sadly we don’t eat enough of it! Cool place to visit if we ever do go to Dubai! Really like how you gave tips at the end and rated your experience 🙂
As I read through the article I tried to pick out a favorite. But that didn’t work out so well when I kept getting a new favorite with each photo, lol!
Thanks Teresa! Yes same applies to me also
Indian cuisine has is so rich with flavor, interesting to the tastebuds. Good to know there such place. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Some fascinating fusion there! The pizza dhokla looks pretty tasty! I’m really liking the look of that Rajfhani thali too, I love lots of little things to taste.
Because I don’t really like curry, I haven’t had a lot of Indian food. However, because I don’t eat a lot of meat — and because your photos are so beautiful — I’m inspired to give more Indian foods a try!
I know little about Indian food, only that it can be very spicy! That’s where I fail, as I’m a total wimp with spice. Saying that, I like the look of the kebabs here, it’d be a new experience for me. The decor here is so unique and colourful too.
WOW! Rajdhani street JLT, Dubai seems to be a perfect place for Indian street food fusion experience! The food looks amazingly tempting. Hearing about some unique fusions for the first time Pizza Dhokla or Rajasthani Cheese Mirch Vada. Have not seen these in India as well! Rajdhani street seems to be a must go to places when visiting Dubai! Thanks for the heads up to take pictures as they serve and definitely order drinks for the unique glasses!
Thanks Navita! I am also amazed by their innovations and twists with Indian food
Indian food is something which is very close to my heart and I always try and visit 1 indian restaurant on my holiday. Dubai has some great indian restaurants and Rajdhani street JLT surely will be on my list the next time I visit. The indian fusion is a great way to experiment with indian cuisine The decor is very reflective of the sub continent must say. Food looks very presentable and mouth watering as well. Thanks for sharing a great place.
Thanks Amar! I am sure you would definitely like this place in your next visit, if you love Indian cuisine .
Just was drooling over your blogpost Yukti. The pizza dhokla and kairi panna looks so yummy and tempting.
Indian food street seems to bring together the flavours and aromas of Western India in Dubai. What I really like is the fusion that they have achieved by small international twists to traditional fare. The food really looks tempting. A place to be bookmarked for visiting when in Dubai.
Yes Sandy n Vijay, you would love it. I am sure
I had no clue, there was such an amazing Indian place there. Loved the quirky interiors designs too. Im sure the food would be good too!
Great review and I’m sure you’re glad you can find excellent Indian food in Dubai, Food looks so good and I love the cartoon depictions of Mumbai on the walls. So cute. I have never tried Kulkuli Sherbet drink before. Sounds like it would sour or tangy but its spicy instead?
Yes Amy, it is spicy, sweet and sour and that is why unique because I never tried icy spicy drink.
I am definitely a big fan of Indian food, although I can’t have it too hot. This looks like such a wonderful place to dine and I love the presentation as well. Rajdhani Thali looks really appealing to me as this dish allows you such variety to sample and still would be enough for a meal.
Yes Nicole you would love thali as it has combination of flavors
I love Indian food! Everything looks so good. The Hara Bhara Kebab looks amazing, I don’t blame you for finishing it so fast. Looks like a great feast!
