If you’re someone belonging from Dhaka and from the 90s era, it is unbelievable that you haven’t visited or had a meal from The Arabian Fast Food located in Dhanmondi Road No. 5. The Fast Food place is a place of nostalgia for most 90’s kids and is successfully running business for over 33 years now! While it’s true that traditional Bengali cuisine dominates the food scene, Dhaka also offers a delightful array of international flavors and Arabian Fast Food was able to introduce several items on their menu while the people of Dhaka did not even have much of a fast food scene going on in Dhaka.
The Manager, Mr. Selim, is the common face you’d notice sitting behind the cash register taking orders from his beloved customers for three decades now! If you’ve been to the fast food joint, you must have for sure seen him because he’s been working here for 29 years now! With no other branches or outlets anywhere, Arabian Fast Food is a great example of a successful business, and consistency and quality are key to maintaining one. With a seating arrangement of 30-35 people at once, the fast food joint has been serving its customers with a smile 7 days a week.
Unlike their name, Arabian Fast Food, does not specialize in serving Arabian cuisines. Instead, they are well known for their famous Fried Chicken & Danish Chicken, the most sought-after items in their menu. The fast food shop has a variety of items to offer, however, it is always their chickens that steal the spotlight because of their unbelievable ability to maintain the same taste and quality for over 30 years now. Their sandwiches and several options of pizzas to choose from are also customer favorites. However, one item on their menu that slightly coincides with their name is their Shawarma.
The Arabian Fast Food is a place of emotion for many and the majority of customers that they serve are regulars and those who visit often. It is definitely a go-to place for people residing around the Dhanmondi area. The Fast Food shop is known to serve not just one generation but the ones following after as well. It has been possible only due to their consistent effort to serve the customers with the best possible service since 1992! If you are ever around Dhanmondi and wondering where to go to grab a bite, don’t forget to visit Arabian Fast Food, because their chickens can never be a wrong choice.
