We have dined in Kurkuman several times and I must say we are absolutely impressed. We visited them as their sign states 'Afghan, Peshawari and Belujistani food' which we found really interesting. They are nicely decorated with pavilons outside and a very nice view due to the setting directly at the Marina. The food is absolutely excellent and far from comparable to the usual Indian or Pakistani food. They serve a very interestingly spiced trout, fascinating veg dishes and excellent rice dishes.
Initially we were a bit surprised as some dishes seemed a bit expensive - but not anymore as soon as you have tasted them. Those people know how to cook.
Also, each time we came we got some garlic bread and very delicious homos as a starter and most times they served us some veg dish or some kind of byriani or something else quite interesting from their menu to try - on the house. Every time we wanted to eat small portions we went home with an extremely full belly.
The service was really outstanding, the staff very friendly, and make you feel really welcome. We really hope they survive despite the relatively quiet corner, as we enjoyed dining there each time very much.
It is a shame really that they are so well hidden, quite at the end of the Marina: you'll find them about 500m to the right when you are standing down at the Marina, in front of the Yacht Club, facing it - just after the Core studio, below the Damac building. Coming from JBR you would cross the bridge between Amwaj and Shams and then walk down along the bridge on the left side.
