    Several: High-end food at low-end price

    by Saagar Updated Jan 29, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sea food in Bangladesh can be excellent. If you also manage to sort out those places that have the certain hygienic standard that you can cope with, then go for it and order the king prawn, mega tiger prawn and lobster grilled or curried. These dishes can be very well prepared and supremely tasty. Yet few locals can eat it because of the price tag, and few tourists dare to touch these dishes. For some reason, tourists prefer that samonella chicken with blood red centre instead, believing it's safer.

    Favorite Dish: Aaaaahhhh!!!!
    Curried lobster...
    Huge tiger prawns.... - grilled...

    Spitfire grill: our favorite place

    by marcokoffeman Written Jan 1, 2008

    Spitfire Grill was our favorite place to eat, especcially on THursday or Friday night when they have the buffet, with the barbeque/grill with a whole lamb roasting, big prawns or nice chicken. They must have a great recipe for making their stocks, because whatever soup you eat, it is always amazingly good.
    Spitfire Grill was one of the few places in Dhaka that served really nice desserts! Try the chocolate mousse, or bread pudding. They always have a selection at the buffet, so you can try most of them.
    Apart from the good food we loved the relaxed service, not so intrusive as most places in Dhaka. If you are into seafood, go upstairs to Salts, and find the same standard and service there.

  • Pizza Hut: best Pizza in town

    by bkk800 Written Oct 9, 2004

    I know, I know, Pizza Hut the chain has infiltrated the local culture. However, this Pizza Hut is different from the chains you see in the West. Firstly, the service is much better, because it is well staffed, secondly, it is the only one in town (so far). If you are looking for the comforts Western food in Dhaka, it's a good place to go. Also, they make a real fuss over you when it is your birthday.

    Favorite Dish: All pizza is good.

  • Kazana: Good lunch buffet, excellent food, safe to eat

    by bkk800 Written Oct 9, 2004

    The restaurant is bright, clean, it has nice surroundings, good service, good food. It is owned by the Kana Kazana chef on TV, the food was not too spicy or hot either. A good place to eat, especially the buffet.

    Favorite Dish: All the dishes were good and gave my fragile foreign stomach no problems at all.

    all local restaurants: Hot chillies

    by Saagar Written Jun 10, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bengali food is good, but the locals like it hot - very hot. So the spices can really make you break out in a sweat and set your juices free. Apparently the chillies have some aphrodisiacal effect, too, but certainly any urges will be overrrun by nose runs...
    So, be prepared for the sweat, or negotiate for less spicy dishes. For once, you can also take onto the salt with gusto - you need salt replenishment here in tropical Bangladesh where you'll sweat a lot. If the food you are getting is devoid of spices thanks to your insistence, you can at least add some salt. For some reason the locals are using less salt in their food than their neighbours the Nepalis and Indians.

    Favorite Dish: I like it hot, but not as hot as the cook likes if he is free to choose. Some quiet negotiation about the spice contents, and with raita and plenty of rice, and perhaps a kheer for dessert - all stuff that kills off the burning sensation - I''ll be fine.

    Mr. Penguin: Ice cream at Chittagong's Patenga Beach

    by Saagar Written Jun 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On Patenga Beach just south of Chittagong city there are numerous beach vendors that ply their trade. You will not go hungry or thirsty here unless you're out of cash.
    This young boy did a roaring trade - a favourite with the ladies; his smile or Penguin brand ice creams?

    Favorite Dish: I would never eat this ice cream, but I did not see anyone drop dead from eating it, though. I liked the conversation with the boy - he had a good, beach-aquired English.

    by Saagar Written Jun 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Overcome the fear of the unknown and dip into the world of Bangladeshi street food!
    Freshly made in boiling hot oil, this won't kill you, but excite you.
    Watch for the hot spices, though, and find something you really like so you can order with confidence next time.

    Favorite Dish: Puris.

    Happy customer, happy vendors!

  • Wimpy Fast Food Dhaka: Don't miss the Wimpy!

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jun 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I know it's a shame, but I recommend Wimpy, burgers and fries.

    Just in case you need to treat yourself for 1 time!!

    Funnily, this is an relatively upmarket restaurant. Prices comparable with the West. You can see the local chique eating here!

    Street vendors

    The street restaurants are the most common way to eat in Bangladesh, they offer all sorts of typical and usually genuine food... and for a risible price...
    In the picture... bread makers on the way between Dhaka and Nasirnagar...

    There's some nice restaurants there, mostly indian style and chinese. The food is good, and very cheap. You shouldn't drink the water though, unless you're certain it's a bottle with the original water inside.

    There are plenty of street...

    by BorderHopper Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are plenty of street side food stalls where you can dine on the local cuisine..so take your pick. Speaking of pick..if you happen to be a picky eater or just crave a cold $5 USD Foster's beer you will have to head out to the Sheraton Hotel. Bangladesh is an Islamic country and you won't find beer anywhere except for an inflated price at the Sheraton Hotel. They also have a Western menue offering pizza & other artery clogging goodies from the West.
    Airconditioned. Even if you aren't paying top dollar to stay here (believe me I wasn't staying there) its a good place to come ease the culture shock you may be experiencing or load up on some serious calories (all that sweating you'll do you'll need to gain some calories back).

    Favorite Dish: Foster's Beer....it was easy paying $10 USD for two beers considering it was unavailable anywhere else in Dhaka (as far as I knew).
