Ashiana, which means home, is an Indian Restaurant inside the Sheraton Hotel Dubai Creek. Being one of the first Indian restaurants in Dubai, they serve the most authentic Indian food from different parts of India, complemented by an exceptional dining experience.
It’s very easy to find the restaurant. It’s just on the upper ground floor of the hotel and as you enter the place, you will immediately feel at home with their warm hospitality and ambiance that is well known in India.
The menu boasts of a vast selection of culinary delights and favorites that include soups, chats, kebabs, biryani, bread and scrumptious main courses. If you’re a first timer in the restaurant, you’ll be pleased to know that the waiters are all knowledgeable about their products and offerings and will be able to help suggest and recommend based on your preference.
I thought that only the popular Carnival by Tresind prepares the food in front of guests but apparently, Ashiana has been doing it since they launched. The chef started with this appetizer and followed by a more intricate one.
The main courses include the popular buttered chicken, paneer, chicken biryani complemented by a couple of different flavors of the famous Indian bread, nan. To say these were delicious would be an understatement. Each dish was appetizing and mouth-watering and you can definitely relish the spice and the richness of the flavors.
Last on the list of courses is this masterpiece of a dessert that the chef prepared in front of us. It only took him a few minutes and in between the explanation and the preparation, we were fascinated at how good it looked and more happy with how great it tasted.
Aside from the great food and excellent service at the restaurant, they also have a live band playing on certain days. We didn’t catch them last night but I’m sure they are good judging by the clientele that they have.
Overall, Ashiana was able to give us an authentic and remarkable dining experience last night. They are not only well known for the traditional cuisine with modern twist and live music but also for the cozy atmosphere and high standards of service. It’s one of the most consistent restaurants out there and I would strongly recommend this to all my friends and I’m 100% sure that they will love it as well.
