For many people in Dubai, South Indian Restaurants and their food is rapidly becoming their favorite — its lightness as compared to the thick gravies of North Indian dishes; its focus on vegetables, beans, and grains; its quick sautés and stir-fries that give the dishes freshness, vibrancy and crisper textures, all of which are aligned to contemporary tastes. Because spices grow everywhere in South India, most South Indian restaurants in Dubai have them flown in from the owners’ hometowns: their freshness adds a piquancy, which registers a noticeable difference in the food’s taste.

If you’re after fragrant, generously spiced, utterly delicious Indian food, you needn’t travel far: after all, Dubai is simply brimming with incredible curry houses. And for south Indian staples – including airy dosas, brightly flavored fish curries, plates with lashings of coconut and tamarind, heaps of rice, Kerala seafood, Hyderabadi biryani, vibrant meat fries, flaky parotta, feather-lite appam — and so much more – there are more than a fair few places to sate your appetite.
