Time Out Says

Stepping out of the shadows of your older sibling isn’t easy – especially when it’s a name as big as Trèsind. But, that’s the unenviable target Carnival by Trèsind was tasked with.

And, it did so in the most energetic way possible. This DIFC haunt is the louder, noisier younger sister that takes Trèsind’s winning formula and reinvents it.

The dining room is as charming as it is loopy – with sparkling rose gold trees and walls mixed with pop coloured furniture and a black and white zig-zagging floor.

It’s elegant yet unpolished, classy yet accessible. It’s held onto the exceptionally high standards of food and drinks, but injected life and personality into the dining room and the service. Yes there’s smoke, bubbles, foams, tuiles and more, but there’s no fanfare over it.

When it comes to food, you can take your pick from set menus or off the traditional-meets-contemporary à la carte. Vegans are also well looked after, with nothing too much bother for the smiling team.

Highlights include the masala fried chicken, lamb biryani and Pondicherry fish curry complete with appams. While a special mention must go to the “mushroom management” rice, made from wild mushroom and truffle. At Dhs100 it’s far from cheap, but it’s a huge portion of perfection.
