Diva Maharashracha – Being a Maharashtrian I always look for a restaurant in Dubai, where I can find authentic or close to authentic cuisine. Finally I found one where I can get authentic Maharashtrian food and that is Diva Maharashtracha. Restaurant is nestled in JLT and I highly recommend this place.
The ambiance is beautiful and simple where you get a small glimpse of Maharashtra. Service is prompt and staff is very courteous. The menu stole my heart as they have Goan, Maharashtrian cuisines options, specially a huge vegetarian variety for vegetarians.
We started with refreshing SOL KADHI & KOKAAM SARBAT, both these drinks were perfectly seasoned and delicious. KAJU KOTHIMBIR VADI was the best, do try this for sure. Peas pattice was delicious and perfectly filled. Non vegetarian starters PRAWN KARANJI, KOLIWADA CHICKEN was amazing too.
In mains we had PATODI CURRY, it was simple but filled with many flavours. BHARELI WANGI is highly recommended, even if you do not like eggplant, you will love it. In nonveg KOLHAPURI SAOJI MOTTON, and MALVANI SUKKE was beautifully flavored and perfect with CHAPATI & AMBOLI.
In desserts we had PURAN POLI it was delicious and you should try it if you haven’t tried the authentic puran poli yet. Also DOODHI HALWA was very homely and delicious. Over all we loved this restaurant and I will visit again when I want to have authentic Maharashtrian food.
