Best Indian Restaurants in Dubai

This post has been something which I have been planning for quite some time and to make it happen I had to try some of the most lavish and known Indian restaurants in Dubai, poor me. How else could I have done justice to this post otherwise? Finally after months of tastings I have finally managed to compile a list of some of the Best Fine Dining Indian restaurants Dubai has to offer.image

*Rang Mahal by Atul Kochar, JW Marriott Marquis – When it come to showcasing his talent this creative and Michlin Star award winning Chef leaves no stone unturned. Rang Mahal has proven especially after receiving the recent Times Out Award for 2016 that this without a doubt is a restaurant which is set to surprise you with its marvelous creation every time you dine here.
Must Try – Lamb Chop and the Chocolate Dessert Platter.image

*Amal, Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa – When the question is of fine dining, how can one forget Amal. Even though the ambience and the interiors aren’t styled traditionally Indian but the food is truly Indian and authentic. Without much tampering to the real Indian flavours this restaurant delivers the right balance of tastes which you would want to relish in any Indian dish.
Must Try – Chili Chicken and Grilled Salmon.image

*Naya, Jumeirah Beach Hotel – With the views of the Burj Al Arab, light lighting and classical atmosphere Naya restaurant is definitely a place you should try. Chef Pravish’s take on Indian cuisine is something I wouldn’t mind going again and again for. Each dish is different from the other and the phenomenal taste which you will magically fall in love with.
Must Try – Dal Makhani and Butter Chicken.image

*Tresind, Nassima Royal Hotel – This restaurant is more of a experience which is why it is the recent highest rated restaurant in Dubai. The Indian delicacies are presented in the most unusual way you can imagine. With a constant effort of Chef Himanshu the dishes here not only look marvelously beautiful but also taste excellent.
Must Try – Mushroom Chai and Chaat Trolley.image

*Mint Leaf Of London, DIFC – After having a fabulous success in London I am so glad the idea to open a branch in Dubai came to fruition. Not only did I love the food but the romantic lounge and the Burj View made this my classic Indian restaurant to woo and impress any guests. The food is kept subtle and you don’t feel too bloated or guilty after indulging in a few dishes here.
Must Try – Venison Curry and Rasmalai Shots.image

*Ananta, Oberoi – Royal food right from the time of Mughals and Awads is rightly served with each bite oozing with juicylicious flavours of herbs and rich spices. Their Biryani which I recently savoured at Dubai Food Festival is light on spices but still very tasteful. I can very much agree with What’s On Dubai for awarding this restaurant 3 Black Hats.
Must Try – Lamb Biryani and Dora Kebab.image

*Indego, Grosvenor House – Chef’s Vineet Bhatia’s work on Indian dishes is remarkable. This Michelin Star chef has been appreciated for his dishes not only by the big critics but also by his usual customers who would show undying consistency in returning back time and again to this little gem.
Must Try – Lamb Chops and Dhaba Chicken.image

*Amala, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray – In this elegantly grand hotel is this years Times Out Award nominated Amala. In my opinion their table buffet variety and quality is unbeatable. They feed you until you are satisfied and the pallette pleasing dishes are worth a try.
Must Try – Mango Shrikhand and Chicken Tikka Masalaimage

So now that I have given you a list of restaurants and made your life easier go ahead share this with your friends and family and make your dining experience exceptionally perfect with these elegant and divine restaurants in My Dubai.
