Treasured Hindi singer Asha Bhosle’s restaurant, winner of Time Out Dubai’s Best Indian award last year, does away with tradition in favour of creating a modern, contemporary space. It’s all dark oranges, browns and deep reds, colours reminiscent of the East, and the restaurant’s low lighting and soothing background music affords a cosy romantic intimacy. There were few surprises on the menu when we last visited – expect butter chicken and Khadai paneer alongside goshts and masalas – however, at the time of writing, the list was being revamped. But rest assured, care and attention goes into each dish, from their preparation to the background stories that accompany some of them on the menu. Knowledgeable, proud staff will also explain them to you in further detail, should you still be undecided. The quality of food is of fine dining standard, but you won’t feel the sting of fine dining prices when the bill arrives. It’s a wonderful restaurant with outstanding food, that’s well worth a visit.
