I have been a frequent visitor of Jeddah Food but seldom found something related to Pakistani Food. Being a diverse city, Jeddah has always been a second home to a huge number of Pakistanis. I know for the fact that a lot of my Arab and Western Friends love Pakistani Cuisine and that’s why I decided to add a section on Pakistani Restaurants on Jeddah Food.
The first name that comes to my mind when we talk about Pakistani Food is of Marhaba Restaurant (behind Chillies on Andalus & Falestine St Junction). It is in my mind the best ambassador of this amazing South Asian cuisine, often confused with Indian cuisine, it has very distinct flavors.
The menu at Marhaba is well designed and it has almost all the best dishes this cuisine has to offer, from BBQ to Biryani, Lahori Fried Fish to chutneys (salsas) you will find everything to suit your appetite. The food is kept mild on purpose to accommodate non asian clientele. The atmosphere is elegant & clean and the staff is courteous as well. Last but not the least the food is affordable, two person enjoying a full meal will pay around a 100 SR.
The dishes I liked best at Marhaba are Chicken with Green Chilli, Seikh Kababs, Lahori Fried Fish, Qeema Naan (Bread filled with Minced Meat), Tandoori Paratha and the list can go on and on and on… You’ll have to try it and figure it out for yourself!Read more
