These days, huge expatriate communities have enhanced Jeddah’s cultural melting pot tag, ensuring it is a place where every culinary whim can be satisfied. Whether it’s fine dining at one of the city’s award-winning restaurants, or spicy street eats in a bustling ethnic neighborhood, we’ve got it covered in this list of some of the city’s best international eateries.
Once upon a time, this little-known Pakistani eatery was popular with just the local expats that hang around, karak chai in hand, late into the night here in Jeddah’s Little India – just off the King Fahd Road in Sharafiyah.
But not anymore. Somebody has spilled the beans, and now when you tuck into your tantalizingly spicy karahi gosht (fried mutton curry) with daal chana (spiced lentils and chickpeas) in this simple, no frills eatery, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with western expats and smug locals, all revelling in knowing where to get Jeddah’s best curries for little more than the price of a trendy cup of coffee.
