Whether you choose the stylish dining room or pretty outdoor area at Mahec, you’ll be seated in a relaxing space where you can enjoy the brilliant food coming out of the kitchen. Everything looks very pretty; this is one of the top Indian fine dining spots in Dubai. What sets Mahec apart from its contemporaries is the price tag; for the quality of the food served this is excellent value. The meat and vegetarian dishes here are all excellent – try the dhal makhani for an earthy lentil side, as well as the cucumber raita and aloopalak (potato in spinach sauce). For main courses you’d be wise to consider the home-style chicken curry. Breads are fresh and tasty and the vegetable pulao is excellent. Everything here is neat, tidy and very tasty.
Open daily 12.30am-3.15pm, 7pm-11.30pm. Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, Garhoud (04 702 2615).
