“DELICIOUS INDIAN FOOD”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

As a previous reviewer has said this is probably the best Indian meal you will ever have. The fusion of flavours was so well thought out that it was a taste experience of the utmost pleasure. My only advice would be to request a table on the ground floor level which have lamps. We were sitting upstairs with just candles and being in our fifties with diminishing eyesight we have to request a torch to read the menu! We are going back to Dubai in June and cannot wait to eat again at this amazing restaurant - head torches optional!

“A Delicious and Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Quite the best meal that we had in Dubai, original and tempting Indian food, definitely not your normal curry house, everything was marvellous and beautifully presented. We wanted to go back on Sunday night to try some of the other dishes that we were tempted by, but it was closed, so we went to the very disappointing Eau Zone instead.

“not the normal Saturday night curry”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is probably the best Indian meal I have ever eaten, however if you are looking for your usual English style "ruby" you will be disappointed, in fact as far as I can remember, only one dish was familiar to me.
We started with a selection of breads and pickles, the breads were warm and full of spiced flavours, whilst the pickles were fruity and delicious. The starter was for me the star of the whole meal...deep fried soft shell crab with a fresh mango salad, served with a spicy seafood broth....simply amazing.
my wife and I then had the mains of curry, although as I said not like anything I had tasted previously, they were well spiced but not such that it took the roof of your mouth off...more delicate.
If you like spiced food try this restaurant, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

“Superb quality Indian food”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

If you want a chicken tikka masala don't try here! This is great Indian cooking with a touch of class. The lamb chops were stunning and the butter chicken is a must do. Service was excellent to add to the experience. Very much recommend you give it a go.

“TRY THE WINE PAIRING”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

The food was excellent.We thought we would go for the wine pairing option as the wines were from India, and being from the north of England had never tried Indian wine.They were all good and complimented the brilliant food.
