The ‘King of thalis’, the Andhra thali is known for its rage and fiery characteristic. And if you’re craving one, head to Amaravathi at Karama to get your fix.

What’s It?

Very few things can match the joy of eating a sumptuous South Indian meal from a banana leaf! If you’re nodding now, chances are you might head to Amaravathi very soon. 

Decked in the by-lanes of Karama, this old-fashioned restaurant is a hidden gem in the city. One look at the restaurant and you are sure to travel back in time- the ambience, the old-school plates, and the vibe is kept extremely simple, and that’s what makes Amaravathi a second home. 

The Menu

Amaravathi is super famous for authentic Andhra meals. Make sure you keep your breakfast light in case you’re heading here for lunch or definitely won’t be able to do justice.

Order yourself a Nizam’s Treat if you’re famished. The king-size meal includes roti, rice, Andhra chilly chicken, chicken curry, chicken dum biryani, fish gravy, sambhar, rasam, papad, curd and a sweet. The thali is priced at AED 30. Interesting enough? 

In case you want to keep it a little simple, go for the Virundu Bhojanam, priced at AED 20. Simple yet delicious, the meal includes steamed rice, two curries, rasam, sambhar, papad, chutney and a sweet. Lastly, there’s also a mini thali for the kids for AED 15.

All the meals are served in a traditional banana leaf, making the experience more authentic. End your meal on a perfect note with the banana and paan being served to you after you’re done relishing the thali.
