From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010The concept behind D’fusion is a little scary. Billed as Indian food fused with ‘exotic tastes from around the globe’, the sentiment behind the menu is something that can work to great effect, or not work at all. Thankfully, it works. This said, the atmosphere at D’fusion is far from jovial: the lighting is dour and the decor is dull. The lounge singers belting out audience requests, like Willy Nelson and Simon and Garfunkel, just add to the venue’s seeped-in shabbiness. It’s not the sort of place you picture selling Voss water at Dhs28 a pop. Still, the place does have its charms. The menu boasts ‘good old-fashioned Indian chutzpah’ (for those not in the know, this is Yiddish for cojones, or daring, if you will). They also serve Indian takes on lasagne and shrimp scampi. Cojones, indeed. Surprisingly, these dishes impress. Try the prawn dim sum, or if you prefer, stick to the Indian classics, which are every bit as good.
