Indian restaurant Roobaru opens in Downtown Dubai

The space will feature a dedicated chai bar and a signature firepit grill

Roobaru, a new independently-owned Indian restaurant, has opened its doors in Dubai’s Downtown neighbourhood. The concept, an unpretentious hangout inspired by the coolest neighbourhoods in India, fuses traditional Indian cooking with a modern twist.

Dishes include the manga ceviche, a  take on traditional mango curry from Kerala, and the Sharjah Sambusa Chaat, a fried samosa paired with Chips Oman, a nostalgic UAE snack as the nation’s favourite packet of crisps.

The menu also features updated versions of classic curries, including smoked chicken tikka masala, to be enjoyed with a truffle kulcha.

For dessert, there’s homemade soft serve ice cream, featuring a constantly rotating mash-up of flavours.  

The new addition to Dubai’s indie dining scene, within DT1 Residential Tower, is unlicensed and will emulate the atmosphere of a dining hall with a mix of dine-in seating and a grab-and-go section, reflecting the restaurant’s “freestyle, homegrown” ethos.
