Desi Dastarkhawn

Also Known as "DDK"

Dastarkhawn symbolizes the traditional laying down of a piece of cloth for family and friends to enjoy a meal and Desi refers to the authenticity of the sub-continent.

Our Founder's Journey:

From Karachi to Bahrain

At Desi DastarKhawn, our story begins with our founder, Nadeem Usman Dhaduk. Nadeem’s background was in the garment industry, and he moved to Bahrain in 2006 to oversee one of his family’s manufacturing units. However, he quickly noticed that Bahrain was missing the authentic flavors of Karachi, his hometown in Pakistan.

Driven by his love for Pakistani street food and a desire to bring those flavors to Bahrain, Nadeem started recreating his favorite dishes at home. Gatherings with friends and family turned into opportunities to share these delicious dishes. In 2008, during one of these gatherings, the idea for Desi DastarKhawn was born.

Nadeem’s passion for authentic Karachi cuisine and his dedication to sharing it with others led to the creation of Desi DastarKhawn. Today, his daughter, Aruba Nadeem Dhaduk continues his legacy by serving the same mouthwatering flavors that started it all
