“Best for Pure Vegetarian North Indians”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

I visited Puranmal in Bur Dubai. Provides excellent North Indian meals at economical prices. Quality of food is very good. The seating is on the first floor which may not suit old people.

“As good as it gets !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

Imagine visiting a foreign country and you are already missing home food ( Indian ) and then you get into this hotel in Bur Dubai, which serves a thali , the likes of which you dont get in most places in India !!
When I , with family . was just scouting around Bur Dubai for Indian restaurants, we just decided to take a chance with Puranmal , as we liked the sound of it. It was pure bliss, the thali experience ! Hot rotis that just melted away, was served with Gobi mutter, Aloo subzi, Kadi pakora, raita, papad, onion salad, pickle, exquisite gulab jamun. This has to be one of the best veg N.Indian thali that we ever had !!

“Perfect curry at a bargain price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2011

This curry house is understated and is hidden away, but you will be blown away by the sheer quality of the dishes! Even the non-veggies were impressed with the food in here. The pilau rice is enough to feed 2, maybe 3 and the curry portion size is HUGE! I had an achaari aloo which was beautifully spiced with huge chunks of potato, and a fresh lime juice soda to wash it down. The dessert menu is to die for too, and the thalis are great value for those who get bored with one curry dish. A must see for all curry lovers in Dubai!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2011

If we talk about vegetarian food in Dubai and one which involves "Indian Taste", damn Puranmal is one name which is to be taken on no. 1.
The entire preparation is great, that of lunch and fast food.
Its highly recommended while you are in Dubai and especially if you are a vegetarian
