From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2009Die-hard fans of Indian cuisine might be affronted by Indego’s European/haute spin on subcontinental fare. But whether or not you’re willing to concede that the food is, in fact, Indian, you’ll unlikely take issue with the fact that it is, indeed, brilliant.
It is the brainchild of celebrity chef Vineet Bhatia, the restaurant’s consultant chef and the first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star. Standouts include a starter of assorted samosas with unique stuffings, such as goats cheese and pine nuts.
For a main, we cannot say enough good things about the tandoori salmon, made up of meltingly soft and smoky flesh, seasoned with an addictive honey, yoghurt and chilli marinade. Indian food traditionalists may turn up their noses at the idea of a chocolate samosa dessert, which we think is just fine – that just means there’s more for us.
