From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008

Top of the à la carte list of delights is the magnificent fish tikka. Even if you’re not a huge fan of fish, these hunks of hammour are a must-have, marinated with red chillies, garlic, ginger and coriander seeds, and then barbecued until gently crisped on the outside and torrentially juicy on the inside.

The mutton karahi doesn’t match the majesty of the fish, but the little iron pot of tender meat, tomato and devilishly hot green chilli in a smooth, rich sauce packs a punch, even when wrapped up and dispatched in sheets of soft, buttery garlic naan.

Cool down with the exquisite, thick, pistachio-packed kulfi.
