India's first Michelin star drops in on Dubai with some unique fusion (and a price to boot).

It wouldn't be too far off the mark to say there were several bazillion Indian restaurants in Dubai. But there's something really quite special about Indego. While it may be the most expensive Indian in town, it is the work of celebrity chef Vineet Bhatia, the first Indian to receive a Michelin star, who gives his subcontinental menu a distinctly European twist. Apparently Gary Rhodes is a fan...

Food and drink

Traditional Indian ingredients and dishes get a thoroughly modern shake-up, usually with outstanding results (if you're prepared to attempt a chocolate samosa). Die-hard Indian fans might, however, be put off by all the excessive 'fusioning about', as might vegetarians (there are, surprisingly, not that many non-meaty options).  

Ambience

It's a fairly relaxed atmosphere, but still somewhat elegant. This isn't really the place for a rowdy vindaloo and a couple of Kingfishers with your mates.  

Service

Usually excellent and attentive.  

Location

Indego (by Vineet) is in Grosvenor House, the boutiquey hotel tower down in the Dubai Marina (the one that glows blue at night). It's also home to Gary Rhodes' first Dubai outpost, Rhodes Mezzanine, plus the lively Buddha Bar.  

Price advice

Not cheap. Undoubtedly the best Indian in town, Indego's dishes cost around 100-200 dirhams. But it is rather different than you're average biryani and madras offering.
