“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Had dinner a couple nights ago at this brilliant restaurant and I know that I'll go back soon. The food was exceptional from start to finish. We had two mains (fish, and a signature lamb dish), rice and plain nan. The meat was cooked to perfection in a rich and gloriously tasty sauce. Even their nan bread was out of this world, very light and delicious. Service was prompt, friendly and professional. Clearly, the chef and the entire team know what they're doing. The ambiance couldn't be nicer, both inside, and out on the waterside terrace with breathtaking views. We paid about 260 dirhams for two (only had soft drinks), which is quite reasonable for a restaurant of its class and quality. My only gripe was that we arrived around 5:45 pm and were not allowed to sit outside (said terrace is available from 7 pm onwards, which is totally lame).

Definitely, a solid option for a nice meal in a wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend.

“Great food but expensive...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

Excellent food (Indian Cuisine) on offer. Provides a wide variety of choices to vegetarians as well. All dishes are well prepared, and served well. Staff knows about the restaurant's offerings in detail and will definitely assist you in ordering the right dish if you tell them your preferences. Great location as well.

However, prices are on the higher side. I believe it's slightly above the limit for having that kind of food.

Overall, a great dining experience. Good for families as well.

“Updated Review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

I would like to correct my previous review.
I previously said tha tthere were better Indians in Abu Dhabi, now I'm not so sure!
The last two visits have been exceptional, and I'm back there tonight.
Try the scallop starter followed with the mixed grill, Dal Makhani and a garlic nan - very very good

Thanks

Dave
