MINT LEAF OF LONDON, Emirates Financial Towers, Dubai
Not just another London eatery. Joining the raft of high-end British restaurants setting up shop in Dubai, Mint Leaf sets itself apart by creating an unusual and elegant atmosphere in which to dine. You’d come here for the stunning setting alone, never mind the fabulous array of food.
Mix it up. There are far too many delicious bites to choose from on the starter menu, so tuck into a tasting platter featuring six of the best bits. If you’re the single-minded type, certainly give the Tandoori salmon a look-in.
Be bolder than butter chicken. Dare to experiment with the likes of the king prawns with Keralan coconut sauce – you won’t be disappointed. For comfort food, you can’t go wrong with chooza khada masala – roasted chicken with latpati sauce.
Never forget the naan. Naan bread is a key component of any Indian meal, and here it’s handled with aplomb, thanks to a long list of options.
Sit back and relax. Following dessert (we’d recommend the potted mint leaf), head to the lounge area for an after-meal tipple, or else take in the remarkable views of Sheikh Zayed Road from the well-appointed balcony.
