Indus Restaurant Now Open at Convention Centre

Indus Restaurant Dubai

Last two months in Dubai has been amazing with brand new restaurants and cafes opening. Couple of days ago, we visited the newly opened Indus Restaurant in Convention Centre at the World Trade Centre.

As the name suggests, Indus Restaurant is an authentic Indian restaurant that offers Indian cuisine from the time of Indus Valley Civilization to Modern India. You can expect authentic and delicious Indian food presented in contemporary style.

So glad to find out that there was no theatrics or molecular gastronomy which has become a norm in many of the Indian restaurants in Dubai.

Concept

The concept of the restaurant according to team Indus:

The diverse, tasteful and authentic Indian cuisine with regional flavors has been judiciously put together by our chefs to appeal to not only Indians but global citizens. There is much to be discovered with the eclectic menu reflecting India’s multi-cuisine culture for our discerning guests.

Decor

The Indian inspired interiors of Indus has a modern touch. The restaurant is spacious with a separate bar area and a lounge upstairs. Colorful furnishing, gorgeous chandelier, mirrors and artwork adorn the walls of the restaurant. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.

Our experience

Sweet chutney

We were received warmly and escorted to our table. We were pleasantly surprised by the welcome note on the tray which added a personal touch. The staff informed us that anyone who books a table gets a welcome note which is fantastic.

After being seated they offered us a Welcome Drink and served us the usual condiments like Poppadum, Pickle and Chutney.

Drinks

Indian drinks

Indus is licensed and their beverage menu has alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. They have their own signature cocktails and mocktails. We tried two of their signature mocktails- Indus Garden and Indus River. I am not a fan of mocktails but both the drinks were okay, nothing special.

Food

Before we could order the food, we were offered Amuse Bouche which was a delicious Tikki.

Their food menu has good options for both vegetarians and non vegetarians. Being vegetarians, we ordered only the vegetarian dishes.

Soup

Tomato soup

The Tamatar Dhaniya Shorba or the tomato soup with coriander was super refreshing and comforting.

Starter

We ordered the Veg Kebab Platter and it consisted of Bharwan Mushroom, Paneer Tikka Shashlik, Veg Seekh Kebab and Dal Mooth Ke Kebab. We liked all of them as they were distinctly different and flavorful. Our favorite was the moreish and utterly delicious bharwan mushroom.

After the starter we were give a cucumber and mint based Palate Cleanser.

Mains

Diwani Handi

One of the standout dishes we tried was Diwani Handi and it had a medley of veggies in a tasty and creamy peanut sauce. The spicy Kadhi Paneer and their signature Dal Indus was also very good.

All the curries went well with the Masala Garlic Naan and Chur Chur Naan.

We also ordered Veg Biryani that was served with refreshing Raita. We found the biryani too spicy and it didn’t have well-balanced flavors.

Dessert

Jalebi

Crisp and juicy Jalebi topped with rich Rabdi was excellent and a must-try. We relished it.

Finally…

Indus Restaurant looks like a promising new place with good food, attentive service and inviting atmosphere. If you’re looking for an Indian restaurant in World Trade Centre area, then you can consider Indus.
