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).
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.
Usually excellent and attentive.
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.
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.
