Aam Log means ordinary people but aam means mango and log means people, so aam log funnily translates to mango people. A funny but unique name for a restaurant. Mango People opened their doors in The Villas, Dubailand, during the last week of December 2019 but already have a loyal following due to the delicious Pakisthani food they serve at very reasonable rates.
The interiors are painted in the colours of mango and decorated with famous dialogues and pictures from famous Indian movies. There is an indoor and outdoor seating area and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
I happened to visit this outlet with my family and friends, and we were welcomed with Shikanji Shots. Then were served Kesar Lassi and three types of Stuffed Parathas – Keema, Aloo and Gobi, with spicy green chutney and sliced onions on the side. All of us loved these. The parathas were soft, the fillings were tasty, and the spice level was perfect too.
Then we tried some of their Kebabs and Grills – chicken and mutton with rice and also Chicken rolls. The grills were tender and flavourful and so was the rice.
Since we were a large group, we also had some of their best curries to try. Special Dal, Aloo Palak, Bhindi do Pyaza, Special Aloo Curry, Bhagaar e Baigan, Channa Masala, Kofta, Haleem and Chicken curries found their way onto our table.
Also, their special Mutton Karahi along with Roghni Naan, plain roti and Cheese Naan. Everything was delish and the meat was so tender and juicy. I specially loved the baigan, bhindi and chicken curries. Roghni and cheese naans were too good.
If there’s biriyani on the menu, it must be ordered. Otherwise how could we leave!!! I tried Mutton Biriyani and Chicken Pulao. Again, the meat was very soft and tasted wonderful. The pulao, though, was a little too salty.
The ending was just perfect with Carrot Halwa, Kheer, Ras Malai and their Special Milk flavoured with various nuts and cardamom. My favourites were carrot halwa and kheer, perfectly balanced in terms of sweetness and served warm which is perfect for this weather. The special milk is highly recommended.
The food here is like the one your mom makes, simple yet delicious. Mango People does make aam logon ka khaas khaana meaning delicious food for the common people!!
