The 'Arabians' Way of Food

Arabian Fast Food is one of the most affordable, yet taste-worthy fast food corners in Dhaka. From pizza to shawarmas, Arabians fast food has a pretty long menu. For such a small place, Arabians attracts a pretty long line of customers, mostly students. Since there are a few colleges and universities in that area, the small fast food corner has turned out to be a very popular place for the students to hangout and eat.

One of their most regular specialties is the pizzas, shawarma and the super seller, the Danish chicken-- a big chicken piece, deep fried, served with a plate full of French fries. And it goes really well with their chilli dips and other sauces for just Tk 150. Their pizzas are equally as good. With over fifteen types of pizzas, Arabians fast food is also very well known for its delicious thin crust pizzas. The medium sized pizzas are around Tk 300 to Tk 400 and the large ones are all around Tk 550 to Tk 650, which is enough for at least three to four people.


Rubayet Ahmed, a Bachelors student of Business and Administration (BBA) student from North South University (NSU) and a regular customer of Arabians fast food says, “I have been coming here for a very long time. I love this place because they actually cook the meal before serving it, unlike other fast food joints around the city. The food service is pretty fast, which is another reason why people come here so much. Fast and yummy food, who wouldn't love that?” Ahmed also mentions the regular things he orders, “I always make sure I am really hungry before I go to Arabians, because once you start munching it is not that easy to stop, specially when you and your friends are together. We usually order the Danish chicken if we are really hungry. The smell and taste of it never seems to bore any of us. Other than that, if we go to hangout, we usually all chip in and get the large pizzas. It is good if you are with a lot of people. For appetizers or just for small snacks the regular fries are amazing specially if you know how to mix the dips well. There is another type of fries, the cheese fries, that is pretty good too if you are not much of a chili dip person.” The prices of fries are Tk 50 without cheese and Tk100 with cheese.

Located at Road-5, opposite of Gonoshasto Hospital and Lab Aid, Mirpur road, Dhanmondi, Dhaka, Arabians is a great place for students to munch fast when in a hurry or just have an ordinary hangout with some snacks on the side.
