Vegetarian
Dubai’s first and only all-vegetarian degustation fine dining experience. Also caters to vegan and gluten-free diets on request.
The menu is inspired by humble seasonal ingredients, that are pure, clean, natural, and energy-containing. The cuisine uses fresh produce and dairy products from local farms. The restaurant is driven by the culinary maestro, Chef Rahul Rana, who has a rich background in curating vegetarian and patisserie concepts in culinary arts. The menu at AVATARA will showcase a modern avatar of the techniques, philosophy, and story of soulful Indian food. Indian cuisine was originally predominantly vegetarian. However, the perceptions around vegetarian food have been that of limitations. The idea is to break through these perceptions and curate a unique vegetarian fine dining experience.

Each dish showcased creativity and skill, with fresh, and organic ingredients. The ambiance was cozy yet elegant, making for a truly unforgettable dining experience. Highly recommended!

    It was a wonderful experience, the attention to detail, how the food was described, presented. Was very happy to see Indian vegetarian food getting the attention it deserves finally. I wish them all continued success

    Everything in Avatara has a meaning from interior design, menu creation to each aspect of the dish. This 16 dishes tasting menu makes you crave for more with each bite but leaves you fully satiated once completed. The minimalistic yet impactful interior compliments creative and quite often flamboyant plating of the dishes. Indian cuisine is not known for its looks but Avatara reimagination of the traditional dishes from many different regions makes it very pleasing to the eyes as well for the taste buds. There's many dishes on thetasting menu, which I would gladly repeat in the bigger version. It is an elevated comfort food. Lower on fat and without use of animal products it exceeded my expectations and I am already looking forwad to the upcoming menus as we will be back.

    10/10 If you go to Dubai and you want the full food experience you have to go to Avatara. The hospitality and the (vegetarian) food is next level. I would definitely go here again! 👌

    I was thoroughly impressed by the Vegetarian offerings (sans garlic and onion even) and was simply wow-ed by all the dishes that came to our table. There were many very clever moments where methods/ingredients/dishes from different parts of India were paired together, creating amazing permutations of flavours and executions. My guest and I had a wonderful time together we will never forget!
