When it comes to cuisine from the subcontinent, it’s true that Dubaians are a little spoiled for choice. Surprising, then, how easy it is to fall into a curry rut. Gharana aims to coax diners out of their routine with the lure of four different regional menus: an intriguing, if potentially disastrous tactic. How likely is it that one team of chefs can manage dishes from Delhi, Rajasthan, Lucknow and Hyderabad (four areas with decidedly unique cuisines) with equal aplomb? We don’t know what the odds are, but Gharana has them beat. The Lucknow avadhi kesari mahi (saffron-kissed hammour cooked in the tandoor) is one of the most exquisite takes on the local fish we’ve yet encountered. Gently charred and billowing (yes, billowing) shards of fish are so moist they ooze. It’s preferable to skip dessert and stick to the savouries at this spot, which all excel.
