This restaurant is located in The One&Only Hotel. A couple we had meet the night before raved about it, so we thought we would give it a go. The restaurant is huge, lovely décor and ambiance. The real let down was unfortunately the food. It's not your local Indian food, it's Indian fusion and again I think it's too complicated.... More

This is my second trip to Dubai and on the first trip we discovered this little pearl and decided a second visit was required. It did not disappoint, the atmosphere is opulent and the service is excellent. We enjoyed the taste experience from the menu which provided us with a selection of different tastes from the Indian cuisine. My personal... More

Really yummy Indian food, lots of delicate flavours without being too overpowered by spicy hotness. Good atmosphere and service.

Very nice restaurant with not much atmosphere. Food was very nice but nothing special. The service was impeccable as you expect. It made a nice change having an Indian meal. Won't return. Thousands more to try.

I had a lamb biryani which I requested as non-spicy however was not the case and turned out very dry. Wouldn't recommend it. Ordered a funky okra dish which was very tasty but heavy. We were not impressed by the food but the service and ambience were fantastic!

We usually end up going to Indigo by Vineet; Rang Mahal and Amal . Nina is a great addition to this list The food is excellent - contemporary Indian ; very reasonably... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
