Up on the fourth floor of the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, you'll find a glamorous restaurant that celebrates Indian food at its finest. Rang Mahal is an elegant space, ideal for dinner with friends, colleagues, clients or family. The glamorous red interiors are sure to impress your guests, as is the excellent food and drink on the menu. Expect exotic cocktails, an extensive wine list and authentic Indian dishes elevated with a touch of flair. All this, combined with extremely accommodating service makes for a winning combination and a meal you won't soon forget.
The exotic cocktails are a great way to start, with options like the Bengal tiger, an elegant concoction of saffron-infused Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Aperol, rose vermouth and honey chilli syrup. If you like your cocktails more on the fruity side, try the nightingale, which mixes Tanqueray gin with raspberry, homemade lavender syrup, lemon and egg white, for a fragrant, Tom Collins-esque result. Mocktails aren't an afterthought here, so those not drinking can enjoy clever creations like the tandoor mango lassi or watermelon smash with ginger ale. The wine list, meanwhile, is truly awe-inspiring, showcasing bottles from all over the world, including some rare vintages and magnums for those looking to splash out.
The appetisers here are perfect for exciting the palate before the main event, with tasty options like Mangalorean ghee roast prawns, Keralan fried chicken or tandoor eggplant with basil and pine nuts. The grill is put to good use here, turning out the likes of paneer, vegetables, smoked fish, lamb chops and more. The curries are hearty and aromatic, with familiar favourites like lamb rogan josh, butter chicken or vegetable madras making appearances. There are seven different breads to choose from, including a truffle naan, and gloriously sweet desserts to finish with like saffron rasmalai or cassata khulfi.
