I am patting myself for discovering a vegetarian hidden gem close to where I live. Sweet Berry an Agra(India) based restaurant, cafe, bakery and a sweet shop was launched a few months ago in Dubai. And it already seems to be doing well. When I visited them on a Thursday evening with my kids, it was busy and buzzy.
Situated close to the Burjuman Metro, next to RAK Bank, Sweet Berry is conveniently located and easily reachable. Its open early in the morning till very late in the night.
Sprawled across two floors, Sweet Berry is a Multi Cuisine restaurant with an exclusive Party Hall. It has a vibe of a contemporary bistro.
The interiors of the restaurant is vibrant and artsy. The walls of the restaurant are adorned with gifting items. The restaurant has a retail section where you can buy gifting items, customized cakes, handmade chocolates, Indian sweets and savories. They have all your special occasions covered.
The upstairs section of the restaurant houses a party hall and a mocktail bar. The ambience of the upstairs venue is bright and cheerful.
After being seated, we immediately ordered our drinks. From their Frappe section of the menu we ordered Taro Frappe, they had different varieties of lemonade and we went for the Classic Banta Lemonade and from their mocktails section we ordered the Pink Panther.
Classic Banta Lemonade was our favorite among the drinks that we tried. It is a lemon flavored soft drink known as Goli Soda in India. Chaat masala and black salt enhanced the flavor of the drink. The Taro Frappe was good but was on the heavier side. The watermelon juice based Pink Panther was disappointing as it was too watery and tasteless.
Vada Pav is a popular street food staple in the city of Mumbai in India. It is an Indian equivalent of a western burger. The Vada Pav at Sweet Berry was packed with great flavor and taste. A must-try from their menu.
Next we ordered the Indo Chinese specialty Szechwan Paneer. It was crispy, spicy and tasty.
Mushroom Mexican was a Mexican inspired starter made with mushrooms and served with salsa. It was crunchy and utterly delicious. This dish is a great option for mushroom lovers.
My little girl is fond of Penne Pasta with white sauce. So we ordered it for her. It was served with Garlic Bread. The pasta was well made and she liked it.
From their Mexican section of the menu we ordered Quesadilla. This tortilla stuffed with veggies and cheese was grilled to perfection and tasted amazing.
We found the Burrito Wrap lacking in taste and flavor.
Punjabi Platter consisted of Dal Makhani, Paratha, mint chutney and onions. It was fantastic. The Dal Makhani had a homemade taste and the Paratha was freshly baked and went well with the Dal Makhani.
Ras Malai was utterly delicious, spongy, creamy and rich. If you like milk based sweets then definitely you will like their Ras Malai.
From their bakery section, we ordered the Red Velvet Cake. It was a bit too dry for our liking.
We also tried a variety of sweets like Kaju Katli, Ladoo, Chocolates and their special Date Paan. They were amazing, especially the Date Paan.
Liked the diverse menu of Sweet Berry, it offers a great variety for vegetarians. Loved the creative twists on Indian classics. Indian take on other cuisines worked well too.
The pricing is reasonable and the portion size is good. The service was quick and helpful. We enjoyed our dining experience at Sweet Berry.
