Tresind, modern Indian fine dining

Dubai, due to it’s high level of Subcontinental expats and tourists is unsurprisingly beginning to brim with fine dining Indian cuisine. Tresind competes with the likes of sleek Amal at Armani, templesque Rang Mahal by Atul Kochhar, classic Indego by Vineet and exotic Amala on the Palm. And I must […]

Gold plated tandoori chicken. Is a curry worth big bucks?

Gold plated tandoori chicken. Is a curry worth big bucks?

Would you pay 350AED to eat chaat, tandoori chicken and masala prawns? What if we threw in some lamb korma and some lasooni scallops, a fillet of sea bass with crispy skin, a scoop of sorbet and a couple of chocolate truffles? No? Maybe it would be better if we […]
