Very disappointing flavours although quality of chicken was good. Nothing authentic about this place & not as good as a average high street carry out! Nice outside terrace with good views.

This was the highlight of our trip suggested by a friend who lives in Dubai. The view was amazing as was the food, in fact it was so good we went back the following day for lunch. Very highly recommended

One of my favourite restaurants. The food is consistently good, and the staff are always warm and welcoming. It’s under renovation as I write, and I’m looking forward to it opening again.

One of the best options for Indian food in Marina. Barbeque to curry, everything is good. Try Dahi Kebabs, Butter Chicken, Pepper Chicken, Mix Veg, Biryani, Papdi Chaat, Dal Makhani, and the dessert platter. The location is amazing, with al fresco being on a terrace...More

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

There is no dress code as such, but if you are planning to eat outside the restaurant overlooking the Marina, then I would suggest casual jeans - as it can be breezy. Enjoy!
