"Dhabas" are fresh-fare stops that line the highways of India and Pakistan -- and you can find one in Tempe, thanks to Raveen Arora who brought over this tradition from his homeland:
"The Dhaba isn't like most other Indian restaurants around town, and that's a welcome development." - PHX Rail Food
Bollywood Music, Masala Tea, Authentic Flavors
This southeast Asian getaway is led by Punjabi chefs from Punjab, whose careful guidance leads to perfectly spiced northern Indian dishes with hints of mint, mango, tamarind, ginger, and more. Keeping with tradition, the menu boasts plenty of vegetarian options as well as lamb, goat, and chicken dishes (no beef or pork), all of which are accompanied by buttery naan or saffron-seasoned rice. The Dhaba's menu isn't the only part that makes this establishment truly authentic -- Indian décor is complete with intricate fabrics, romantic lighting, and wooden plank tables that resemble those of the dhabas you'll find in India. The Dhaba also pairs its food with select beers and wines from around the world, including wines from India. Have another one on special nights when this cultural spot hosts Bollywood-style live sitar and Tabla music, and top off your night with a complimentary cup of warm, sweet masala tea.
