Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 1 April 2022: Popular Dubai restaurant Jaffer Bhai’s has received a badge of recommendation from Restaurant Guru, a metasearch-based restaurant and food review website that operates in around 80 countries. Popularly dubbed the “King of Biryanis”, Jafferbhai’s has remained the go-to place for a platter of Bombay-style biryani in Dubai over the years while cooking its way into becoming one of UAE’s most loved dining spots for Mughlai and Indian cuisine.
“It’s a great honour for a legacy brand like ours and it vindicates the love our patrons and our loyal customers have shown us over the decades and their faith in the biryani we make, an art that I learned from my father and a family secret that can never be copied,” said Moin Jaffer Mansuri, chef, restaurateur and the second-generation owner of Jafferbhai’s restaurant that first opened shop in Mumbai in 1973 before reaching Dubai’s shores in the eighties. Today Jafferbhai’s operates out of its flagship restaurant in Karama and a second outlet in Al Barsha, specialising in biryanis and Indi-Chinese fusion dishes.
“Hands down one of the best restaurants in Dubai serving a variety of Mughlai with mouthwatering flavours,” said Afreen Fatima, one of the several reviewers on restaurantguru.com.
“The biriyani king of Mumbai. Has a 50 year old family recipe behind it and also been winning hearts in Dubai for ages now. Amazing taste ever and I just love it. Great service and friendly staff. There are few restaurants in Dubai that always make me go back and Jaffer bhai s definitely one of them (sic),” said Nasreen, another reviewer on the website.
Mansuri says his association with the aromatic biryani ‘runs in his blood’. Mansuri’s grandfather ran a catering business in 1915 that was said to have served the ‘best biryani’ of those times. Later, Moin’s father, who lends his name to the eponymous brand, took over the business and opened a restaurant in 1973 in Mumbai. As of today, there are 10 branches in Mumbai. But Jaffer Bhai’s legacy became truly international when it crossed the Arabian Sea after that and landed straight into the hearts of Dubai’s residents who have since consistently rated it amongst the best biryani places in the country. “These accolades are a result of our years of dedicated hard work,” said Mansuri.
