Time Out Says

Fun, funky, full of flare and, finally, fantastic food. All the Fs, really at this livewire restaurant in DIFC. It’s the younger sibling to Indian fine-dining staple Trèsind, and it runs with that mentality. It’s all a bit mad, but it’s brilliant.

Tableside food theatrics, lively music and great service accompany what’s bound to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Whether you’re after sharing plates, tapas-style Indian dishes or a big fat main course all to yourself, the expansive menu doesn’t disappoint.

It’s fusion, in a way – where you’ll find dishes inspired from around the world, blended in with what it describes as “post-modern” Indian cuisine.

You’ll find quirky dish names, flamboyant props, and a lot of dry ice.

Classics street food dishes like vada pav and chaat are always a great way to start, and give you the live-preparation experience.

Tuck into slow-cooked chicken hummus with green chilli mint lemon dressing for a filling, hearty eat, a traditional curry with an inventive twist, and even South African favourite bunny chow, too.

There are also plenty of options if you’re vegetarian, too, with some 30-plus dishes including kofta and paneer gratin, plus various tofu and potato dishes that offer inventive flavours.

Save room for dessert because the three-part palang tod milk cake comes with saffron milk and dates and is a total winner all round.

With prices that aren’t going to make your eyes water, but super dishes that will make them pop, don’t miss this one.
Open daily noon-3.30pm, 7pm-11.30pm. Licensed. Burj Daman, DIFC, (052 242 4262).
