Tight Budget? Dishes you must order at Carnival by Tresind to not go broke!

Being an Indian, I’m always asked which is my favorite Indian restaurant in Dubai and Carnival by Tresind is always one of them!

Most of the time, my followers even ask me to choose between Tresind or Carnival by Tresind – I’d always the choose the latter since I love the ambiance, vibe and food much more there!

Those who have visited Carnival before (or not) already know it is expensive and I’ve been asked several times to recommend which are the must-have dishes that are GOOD and not too expensive ? I’ve defo tried enough dishes to love Carnival but not enough to judge which should be chosen. Thus, I asked Chef Viru – the Outlet Chef at Carnival to help us all! He has given us 6 options for starters, 6 for the main course and 3 for desserts (4 recommendations for drinks given by yours truly ?)

The below costs does not include the additional 20% tax (10% DIFC tax + 10% service charge) since the tax is added to the final cost in the bill.

Okay! We’re ready to get started 😉
