Restaurant Review:
Khaneen

Al Safa

Dubai plays host to its first Kuwaiti restaurant, Khaneen Cuisine! Kuwaiti food draws influences from Persian, Indian and Arabian cuisines among others and Khaneen Cuisine features a variety of Biryani and Machboos style dishes on its extensive menu. Here’s everything we had at our tasting:

  • Corn Chips Salad: Corn, White And Purple Cabbage, Cheddar Cheese, Nachos Special Khaneen Dressing
  • Rocca Leaves Salad: Rocca Leaves, Pomegranate, White Onions, Tomato, Nuts, Pomegranate Molasses And Olive Oil
  • Mix Sambousa (Cheese, Meat, Spinach And Vegetables)
  • Machbous Laham: Fine Lamb Meat, Prepared In Kuwaiti Style Served With Basmati Rice Flavored With Saffron And Rose Water. Topped With Authentic Kuwaiti Stuffing.
  • Chicken Biryani: Biryani Khaneen Marinated In Their Unique Rub Of Aromatic Spices, Mixed With Basmati Rice Flavored With Saffron And Rose Water Topped With Kuwaiti Stuffing.

Mumawash Mrabyan Mama Hussa: Shrimps From The Gulf With A Unique Kuwaiti Taste, Served With Lentil Rice And Topped With Crispy Onions. Served With Tamarind Sauce.
One of the salads was not really Kuwaiti, nevertheless both made for good starts to the meal. We enjoyed the mixed sambousa and our favorite among the main was the dish with shrimps, the Mumawash Mrabyan, which with the tamarind sauce made for a pleasant main. The aromatic food went well with the Lemon Mint and Khaneen Cocktails we guzzled during our meal.

Desserts

Bir El Waledain: Full Cream Milk Pudding With Eggs Topped With Cardamom And Saffron
Sab El Gafsha: Fried Batter With Sugar Molasses

The desserts were the highlights of the meal! We’d keep alternating between the creamy treat and then the sugary one and paired with some Gahwa, we couldn’t have asked for a better end to the dinner. We’d also like to mention the affable Manager, Karma, who regaled us with stories about both the restaurant and his life as we ate and drank.

Overall, Khaneen Cuisine is perfect for fans of Kuwaiti and Emirati food!
