  1. My mouth is watering looking at these pictures 😀 but the last one was a shocker :S how does “Dhaka hotel” translate to “Matam Khalifa” or “Khalifa hotel” :S

    1. Although these foods look attractive, they are actually not healthy. Because they have been cooked with lots of vegetable oil.

      As for the mismatch of Arabic and Bengali name, it is very common in Saudi Arabia. Probably the sponsor of the restaurant is a Saudi guy named Khalifa, so the Arabic name of the restaurant is ‘Mat’am Khalifa’ whereas the Bengali name targets people of certain ethnicity.
