Aryaas Restaurant, I think first started out in Karama in 2006. A good place for vegetarian south Indian fare. In 2011, they have started a upmarket branch opposite Bur Juman mall in the Bank Street (Khalid Bin Waleed street). In this Bur Dubai branch, I love the Ragi Dosas and Wheat Dosas..healthy bites! In the Karama branch, they had bajra rotis…healthier options are now creeping into restaurant menus – a good sign!
I could only find their old menu…will put up a newer version if I get one.
Vasantam Hotel has an attached vegetarian restaurant with staple Tamil / south Indian cuisine. Their hotel rooms are decently priced.
They seem to have started in Dubai in the year 2000, according to their About Us page on their website (http://www.thevasantabhavan.com/About.html)
Reproducing their menu card below only for reference (it’s quite an old one that I found today while rummaging through some old papers). Click on the images to enlarge:
Sangeetha Restaurant, personally to me, provides fantastic quality south Indian food. Their Chettinad Mini Tiffin is quite exemplary. Even the normal menu when served has got a brightness about it:)
Dubai based ASP Cottages with branches in the Gulf, Europe, India and the Far East provide us expats an opportunity to escape into the cooler climes of the Nilgiri Hills.
Their cosy cottages in Ooty and hospitality was experienced first hand by my wife’s sister’s family and they were very happy with their stay, the food arrangements etc.
