Old Gem: Venus Restaurant ✨

Hey Foodies, how is you all doing?? Good yeah? I’m back with a new blog and this time it’s not about a new restaurant, it’s about one of the oldest gems in Dubai! They’re located in Karama, opposite lulu park and beside Atlas institute.

Venus is one of the oldest restaurants in Dubai and has been the best with their South Indian dishes!! I believe every restaurant has the good and the bad dishes, so does Venus. Whenever we get confused or don’t know where to go for dinner we always opt for Venus. 

We usually order their dosa’s or thali’s. My mom is a fan or their Medu Vada dip in Sambhar, she almost has it as her fix order, haha. There are a lot of things I like/love and few dislike. You should have their Mysore Masala/Sada Dosa, Paratha Korma, Medu Vada Dip in Sambhar, Thali, Set Dosa and Sada Dosa, etc. (That’s a lot of things I like/love) They make the BEST Sambhar, Chutneys and Rassam! A must have side. I haven’t had the same sambhar or chutney anywhere else until  today! The shambar keeps boiling or simmering the whole time which makes it taste so good and fresh.

Recently we had been to venus and thought of trying something different and we ordered their Venus Special punjabi sabzi, actually the staff told us that it’s a very good sabzi so we gave it a try, NO a big NO. The taste of the gravy was okay not the best and it was confusing, there were a lot of khada masala (whole spices) frozen vegetables, little bit of paneer crumble and lot of spices. Even the naan was too chewy and hard to break. So that was a disappointment! Roti’s and naans are always suppose to be breakable and soft to eat even when they get cold.

I think you should mostly stick to the South Indian rather than the North Indian food, but you should always give a try to new things too if you’re feeling adventurous, haha. 

Recently they’ve renovated this place and it looks better than before with more tables added, they should do some changes too like their chairs, cutlery, etc! Hygiene wise they’re clean, very good and friendly Manager and staff. The prices have gone higher a dirhams or two for everything after the renovation and few items have been added to the menu. I would still say they’re quite pocket friendly!!


Food: 4/5

Staff: 4/5 

Hygiene: 4/5

Money wise: 3/5

And overall I would rate: 8.5/10. 

This is it for Venus Restaurant, I think good restaurants don’t need more explanations. I hope you’re enjoying these blogs! Let me know in the comments below what you want me to try and review about, I would be more than happy! So stay hooked with me, until next time take care and see you soon! 😁

  1. You are right. South Indian joints must stick in which they are best i.e South Indian food. Trying north indian cusine in south indian restaurant is a big no no to me & vice versa.
