Service: ***** Food: ***** Steam Out of Ears :********
Pathemari Restaurant is quite a new restaurant serving Kerala dishes. They too have a small section of their menu serving Chinese and Arabic grill but we decided to only try dishes they specialize in. It is located in Tourist Club Area (Al Zahiyah), opposite Navy Gate or the corner shop opposite Bandung restaurant. If you are searching for it on Zomato, it is still under "opening soon".
Once stepped in, friendly waiters in neat uniforms and hair nets greeted us with big smiles and we felt superbly welcomed. The restaurant was clean and very well organised. We were offered this welcome drink, which was a green mango drink with a slight hint of ginger and cinnamon taste. Very refreshing.
Decided to order their Thali meals, a platter served with different types of curry, pappadam, sides and dessert. It comes with unlimited rice or like what I did, I substituted rice with bread and I chose Chappati. Each bowl of curry had its own distinct taste, which was delicious. This costed only 10 Dirham.
On top of the thali platter, we ordered Chilli Chicken (25dirham per plate) and Pan Fried King Fish (12aed a slice) to share. Both dishes had my ears choo choo steamed but I just couldn't stop myself from having more. Both dishes were heavily spiced, which made them very flavourful and I could feel my taste buds dancing with joy. 😋
Happily stuffed! 🤗
