Search for some quick Indian bite brought us here. Unfortunately, the food was below average & the service just pathetic. Definitely avoidable. It's better to try some non indian food then visit this one.

One of the best butter chicken sauces that I've tasted. Chicken was tender & had no bones which was good and was served with a good naan. Rice was extra and a bit expensive compared to rest of dishes but was still worth it. Very, very tasty.

I have tried Shamiana's outlets in City Centre, Mall of Emirates and recently in Dragon Mall 2 and found one thing common, the poor quality of food. If you like genuine North Indian food, please avoid it if you can. I can understand that its cheap and quick dinning restaurant but fail to understand why the quality and taste of... More

I ordered a veggie biriyani...looked very appetizing however, I quickly realized it was only colors the food was completely bland and tasteless. I struggled to even go through 1/3 of it and eventually became to unbearable. This is not my first experience here. Been disappointed before too. Never again

We weren't expecting much from this outlet as we had a bad experience with other similar food court outlets in the past. But to our surprise the quality & quantity of food was good. Importantly, the dishes tasted Indian. Though the prices are on the higher side. More options for vegetarian will be welcome.

Options are more for non-veg people, price is decent, taste is not amazing but simple, combo deals are good.

This is a lovely Restuarant in the Dubai Malls Food Court. The food was really very tasty and plentiful (considering Dubai is a very expensive place to eat and drink this is very reasonably priced). You do get an awful lot for your money, the chicken tikka and curry was really nice with two very large naan breads along with... More

Our experience with Shamiana @ Mall of emirates was disappointing, since the food was not fresh..made and kept for long hours and because of reheating, the kebabs were rock hard..never had guts to order again..

Taste of the food is really authentic. Some really nice choices of chicken, mutton, Kebabs, biryani, jamoons, pakodas, papads. Why 4? Seems like the quantity has reduced as compared to last year. Also the kebabs are becoming smaller. :)
