Finest modern fare I've tasted yet. Service impeccable - staff not afraid to make bold choices and suggestions. Live music truly delightful & elegant. I went for more simple dishes - the chaat starter was divine - the Dakhani Jheenga (Arabian sea prawns in tomato and coconut sauce flavoured with curry leaf) - and probably one of the best restaurant curries ever. The garlic naan was pedestrian in size but gargantuan in taste. I will try to stay at the Sheraton at Dubai Creek each time now as I vow to try every thing on the menu. One of my best culinary experiences ever - after visiting over 100 countries. Well done.

This restaurant ticked all the boxes. Having dined at fine Indians in NY, London and Mumbai - i found Ashiana to rank amongst my better and more enjoyable dining experiences. i will return to Dubai next week, i will be staying at the sheraton because of the restaurant even tho the hotel is not exactly close where my meetings are held.

What do look for in a restaurant especially Ashiana has it all good ambiance, great food, peaceful surrounding, amazing people who do not disturb you every single min, etc etc. The food is exquisite, service one of the best I have come across.
I would recommend this restaurant to people who want a real taste of India with a modern ting.

Good food, especially the chicken tikka, daal makhani and butter chicken. Kabaabs are also amazing. I love the pappad with sauce.

Music is a bit loud. The service is good. However, I will go again for the sake of food only.

I love this restaurant. They do some of the best kababs in Dubai, and even the curries taste delicious .
Moreover the pricing is reasonable considering it is part of a 5-star hotel.
