Downtown cafe is a decent cafe located in Al Karama, its a great addition to the restaurants collection in and around Karama. The cafe has some beautiful indoors, with a book shelf loaded with good books and board games and comfy seating. The cafe has no WIFI. Yes you heard me right NOPE NO WIFI ! No wifi equals to great conversations with your family or friends.
The menu was quite impressing. As i went there for a quick lunch i directly ordered for a Lemonade which was delicious, but it was served after i finished my lunch which was quite disappointing. Apparently as the machine was too busy they couldn’t serve it on time as per the server.
For the maincourse i ordered for a Chicken Sizzler which was accompanied with garlic bread, steamed veggies, sizzling chicken in pepper sauce and some french fries. The Chicken Sizzler was flavoursome. I also ordered for a DT Chicken Steak ( DT stands for DownTown). The DT chicken steak with some fresh mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes, garlic bread and steamed veggies was delectable.
And for the dessert i opted for the Richie Rich Falooda which was toothsome. This was one of the best falooda’s i had in some time. The falooda was so different from the normal falooda’s you have eaten before. It had wafers at the bottom, dry fruits, fresh fruits, some jelly, topped with a scoop of heavenly chocolate icecream and grated fresh chocolate and a fried kiwi fruit.
As i was there just for a quick lunch I couldn’t explore much from their menu. I will definitely be visiting DownTown Cafe soon to try more of their dishes. This place is good to catch up with friends/ family as the atmosphere is relaxing and the food is delicious. I am sure if it was not there for a quick lunch I probably would have spent hours sitting there and having some great talks with some great food of course!
