Royal Express

Kitsch railway-themed Indian restaurant in Bur Dubai
  • 1

Time Out Says

Themed on the Royal Express luxury train in India that has a history dating back to the times of the Maharajas, this restaurant is something else. Designed to look like its motorised namesake, you’ll hear instrumental music peppered with platform announcements in Hindi and train track noises while tucking in to your curry. Service is a little too attentive and food borders on overwhelmingly spicy most of the time, so insist on mild variations. If you want to experience something different, pop by – you certainly won’t need to bother with a reservation – but don’t expect anything more than uninspiring fare in a comically kitsch setting.
