Have you ever had a 15 Course Indian Dinner in Dubai? You can have one at the Carnival by Tresind restaurant in DIFC. My wife and I had dinner there and spent at least 3 hours to finish all the courses served to us. For 375 AED, you get an extraordinary meal experience that we would definitely recommend.

Located at the Burj Daman Building in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), Carnival by Tresind offers a post-modern Indian cuisine, by reintroducing Indian food in a modern and eccentric way. Every meal is a presentation, every food is a show and the staff demonstrates a creative display of their menu while also sharing trivia of each dish.

15 Course Indian Dinner in Dubai Carnival by Tresind Restaurant at Burj Daman Building in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC)

As you enter the restaurant, the first thing that stands out are the shiny bronze-painted trees in a colorful carnival-like surrounding. The restaurant has dim lighting which creates a private setting when you’re dining in your table.

My wife and I have been watching Chef’s Table on Netflix and we’ve wondered when we’d be able to try out dishes with unique presentations and meals that run at least 7-courses long. We were delighted to have experienced it ourselves in Carnival by Tresind. The dishes were served in no rush, as the restaurant aims for you to enjoy each course one by one.

The meal started with a shower of bubbles to set the mood of an amusing and entertaining visual culinary feast. Let me just say that this post is going to be photo-heavy. ;p
