Top 5 pizza places in Dhanmondi

If there is one thing that we can all agree on– is that pizza is love. But when you are in Dhanmondi, and want the perfect slice, where do you go? Here are our top 5 favorite places so you can quickly fulfill your pizza cravings. Spend less time in deciding who has the perfect cheese to dough ratio and more time eating. So in no particular order:

Pizza Roma

Pizza Roma is synonymous with high-quality pizza with fusion toppings and thin crust. Meet both your cravings for Bangla flavor and pizza by ordering the Chilli-lime-grilled pizza (BDT 700 for a small and BDT 1200 for a large) or the Achar chicken. Taste-wise, the pizzas are consistently good; however we have had cases of receiving cold pizza, when it was delivered during busy nights.

  • Address: Kazi and Ahmed Tower, House Number 35, Rd No. 2, Dhaka 1205
  • Hours: 12-11 pm
  • Contact: 01755-660039

Domino’s Pizza Bangladesh

It may feel like Domino’s has been open for more than a decade, but that was the locally ‘inspired’ version. The international franchise, Domino’s Pizza, opened up shop earlier this year. Go here when you are craving pizza with a thick, American crust. For some, the pizzas have the additional appeal of trying out brands that they grew up seeing only in the movies. Pizzas here come in smaller sizes, so Dominos can be good for a quick, solo lunch. The larger ones maybe a little too heavy and oily, far from the lighter, thin-crust versions that many crave. 

The regular-sized Margherita is relatively cheap, at BDT 149. The classic pepperoni is BDT 269. Loaded pizzas like Meatzza and Extravaganza feast (with bbq chicken, chicken sausage, spicy chicken and pepperoni as toppings) are available at BDT 349 for the regular, BDT 649 for the medium and BDT 1099 for the large. 

  • Address: Ground & First Floor, Rangs Fortune Square, Plot- 32, Road No-2, Dhanmondi, Dhaka, Bangladesh
  • Contact: 09612-216656 & www.dominos.com.bd
  • Hours 11:00 AM – 11:00 PM

Bella Italia

Bella Italia is a Dhaka classic. It is the place for the nostalgic, for those who like consistency and for family gatherings. Many Dhaka dwellers associate comfort food and pizza to their Pizza Funghi e Sausage. True to its name, the menu also covers Italian Classics like pizza with anchovies, olives, or eggplant. For some, the toppings are too out there or do not feel like good value for money. Try for yourself.

  • Address: Dhanmondi ADC Empire Plaza, (1st Floor), Plot 91, Road 12/A, Satmasjid Road, Opposite Pizza Hut, Dhanmondi, Dhaka 1209.
  • Opening Hours: 10 AM–11 PM
  • Contact: 01771-077001

Cheez

Cheez is another place that serves hot and cheesy pizzas at generous sizes and fusion flavors. Cheez pizza’s have fun names like Simpler Moddhe Gorgeous pizza, fun flavors like Kala Bhuna. Some love the taste of the different kinds of cheeses that they use, some are not a fan. 

  • Address: Rangs KB Square, 736, Satmasjid Road, Dhaka 1205
  • Hours: 11am-11pm

Dough on the Go

In Dhanmondi? Yes, the latest place on the block is Dough on the Go. They have set up in One Big Plate, the food court. Dough on the Go specializes in pizzas with thin crusts and fresh toppings. The opening of this outlet extends the delivery zone to Dhanmondi, Mohammadpur, Lalmatia and surrounding areas. Their menu is limited compared to the other places on this list and pizzas come only in one size (12 inch).

However, each pizza has a unique flavor–be it the Meatgasm with three types of beef sausage or the pizza with chicken and mushrooms in white sauce (Fungkhy Chicken). Our favorite is the Pesto pizza, because we can taste the freshness of the pesto that is made in-house. Some find the dough too soft and the toppings too heavy, so it can be a messy experience. We keep going back because the texture of the dough of the crust sets them apart from many other pizzerias in the city.

  • Address: L10 (11th floor), Imperial Amin Tower, 10/A on Satmasjid Road.
  • Hours for Dhanmondi: 12 PM to 11.00 PM
  • Hotline for Dhanmodi and surrounding areas: 01305785343

May you enjoy many cheese pulls and pizza nights.

The Food Ranger, Trevor James recently visited Bangladesh and our hearts could only take so much!

We Bangladeshis love to host guests. Especially if they are foreigners, we love to show them around our culture. In fact, we take a certain pride in it. And if the guest is a celebrity traveler and food enthusiast like Trevor James, a.k.a The Food Ranger, you can only imagine our excitement!

That’s right, Trevor recently came to Bangladesh and hopped on a culinary journey of trying pani-puris at TSC to dipping his wrists in bowls of Mejban beef in Chittagong. And goes without saying that he absolutely loved the Bangladeshi cuisine. (I mean, come on! Who wouldn’t? Right?)

Okay, who is Trevor James?

If you don’t know who the Food Ranger is, here’s a little schooling. Trevor James is a traveler and a photographer from British Columbia. He travels all around the world trying authentic local cuisines and making food videos. His YouTube channel offers a unique window to the street foods around the world. His fans tune in to watch him biting on tacos in Mexico city to trying handmade noodles in Chinese streets. And so far, his unique style of video making and traveling has earned him features in The Guardian and The Forbes.

For the love of food!

On January 21st, his fans on Instagram discovered him, to their surprise, in Nirob hotel, munching on 20 types of bhortas! A quick stalk revealed that he was in Bangladesh for two weeks and would try everything from the local street foods in Puran Dhaka to authentic cuisines of Chittagong.

We knew our food is the best in the world, we just needed this validation!

Behind the scenes photos from his social media accounts showed him traveling in the lanes of Puran Dhaka, searching for Biriyani, sharing home meals with Bangladeshi families, eating Mejban beef and gushing about it and so much more!

Until he releases his official Bangladesh videos, it’s tough to say exactly what food he tried but its safe to say that he was not disappointed! I mean, he did say he’d come again! We sincerely hope Trevor visits our small country again for the love of its food. We knew our food is the best in the world, we just needed this validation!
