    What are the best Indian restaurants in Dubai?

    Amal/Armani housed in the iconic Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa is by far the best Indian restaurant in Dubai! That is my personal opinion and shared by many. I fondly call it the best Indian restaurant outside of India! The restaurant not only boasts of contemporary and immaculately presented gourmet Indian cuisine but also of the most spectacular view of the Dubai Dancing fountains in Downtown Dubai! In 2013 Amal/Armani was bestowed with the title of Best Indian restaurant by TimeOut Magazine!

    My second and third chocies would be Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor in Melia Hotel, Dubai and Indego by Vineet Bhatia at the Grosvenor House respectively.

    What is public transportation like in Dubai?

    Public Transportation in Dubai is growing at a very steady pace. With the introduction of Dubai Metro(the first driver-less metro system in the region) it has taken Dubai's public transportation system to a whole new level. The metro is very well connected between the 'Old' and 'New' Dubai and it also adds a seamless connection between the main tourist spots and the corporate/business areas. Dubai Metro is on an expansion phase and will soon connect the missing dots(areas). Besides the metro the most common mode of public transport is taxis by RTA. The taxis in Dubai are aplenty and governed, controlled and tracked by the government's transport body, Dubai taxis are safe, easily accessible and reasonable. One insider tip to remember is that the very famous mono rail on the palm is only for the Palm Jumeirah Island, for now! It does not connect to any metro and goes no further than the Palm Island, a misconception borne by many travelling to the city!
