India House

The key to enjoying the experience of India House is to recognise the place for what it is – a Southern Indian working man’s restaurant – and it's not claiming to be anything different. Once you’ve done that you can leave the food to speak for itself. Strictly vegetarian, but offering a choice of both Indian and Chinese cuisine, with a wide range of ‘sweets’ to cleanse the palette. The food is both plentiful and cheap. If you manage to spend over Dhs25 per head, you must be an elephant. Complimentary water is also provided – essential for those of you with a penchant for the hottest curries. Although somewhat minimalist in terms of décor and service, vegetarians and fans of Indian cuisine will find much to enjoy. The drinks are of the soft variety, but where curries are involved that’s not such a bad thing. A family room is provided, with visitors to the Mezzanine floor charged a Dirham for the experience. Tasty Tip: The lime/mango chutney means serious business.
