Time Out Says
This is something of an anomaly on celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor's roster of restaurants, in as much as it doesn't have the same classy feel as the others. For all the excellence at Signature by Sanjeev, along town at Melià Dubai, his brand is somewhat tarnished by a place that doesn’t look like it has had an ounce of attention in more than a decade. In fairness, the staff are incredibly well meaning and happy to discuss the menu, offering important insight into the influences behind the cuisine. They do tend to hover around the table though, moving cutlery and topping up drinks almost constantly. It’s not always completely deserted here, but the garish decor makes it an uncomfortable place to dine. Food is pretty good actually, but it's hard to enjoy it in such an odd dining room. And with a name like Options, you might hope for a little more ambition. Goat curry stands out, and to give dues to the restaurant, the tenderness of the meat is excellent. Cute little finger-food starters may actually pique your interest, and the presentation of most dishes is pleasant to look at. Especially if you go for a mixed tandoori platter to start. But those highlights aren't enough to save the overall experience.
