Mercurries

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010The ‘M’ in Mercurries should probably stand for mediocre food, and the ‘I’ for identity crisis. This so-called Indian restaurant’s decor is somewhere stuck between a Bur Dubai disco and late-night chilled-cafe vibe. The contemporary neon and black decor, complete with flat screen TVs playing Bollywood films on repeat, is somewhat at odds with the Indian cuisine. The food itself isn’t bad – it’s just, well, very average. The flavours and spicing cater for a more Westernised palette, resulting in some quite bland and sometimes synthetic-tasting dishes; take the ‘melting moment’ spring rolls for example. The menu is a little confused, with international dishes like chicken Hawaiian salad and spinach and garlic soup, randomly thrown in. The staff may be attentive, but this says more about the lack of customers. Sadly, you’re paying for location in the DIFC, over style or substance at MerCurries.
