We actually dont like sweet sabzis. The paneer sabji which we ordered was sweet. The waiter should have informed this in advance that the paneer sabzi will be sweet. There is no option of veg sabjiz at all. This was disappointing as we are veg. The kebab platter was nice. The presentation and ambience is good. The seservice is very slow. Sliced onion came after we had our dinner. The complimentary gulab jamun with ice cream was great.

Recommended Dishes: kebab platter

It's really amazing. Good food, good service, surprise complimentary dessert and a gift too. They made our anniversary memorable. Wonderful experience.

Did not like the food

Excellent starters, faultless service and good main dish. We'll be back.

Recommended Dishes: Any of the starters

TASTE IT TO BELIEVE IT! Honestly the best Indian restaurant I've ever been to. The food is just beautiful and the staff are very entertaining as well. These guys know what they're doing.

Recommended Dishes: Guchi with stuffed cottage cheese, Lemon Butter Chicken

Great fusion dishes

Recommended Dishes: Starters

It was good but as it was my birthday, I expected a cake or something of the sort but didn't get anything

Awesome good. Very good service.



Food was amazing while the serving and ambiance was adding a lot of value to an overall experience.

Great service, lovely ambiance from decor to music. Food was delicious.

Amazing food and excellent service.... They had a technical issue redeeming the entertainer voucher but they still have us the discount! Will definitely come back !

Excellent food..prompt friendly service..great value

I went with my husband to this truly fabulous restaurant lay night. The staff are well informed and professional. The food is creative and bursting with flavour. We cannot wait to bring people back to our new little discovery.

Food was very good. But very expensive.

Well thought menu.. Caters to both international and desi taste

Superb food. Superb service.

A wonderful dining experience with refined cuisine. Attentive & professional staff. We wil definitely return.

Having tried Khana Khazana & Options before i was eager to try Signature.. My overall experience is the food is ok..nothing great..they seem to be really over priced . Its was my birthday..They did give me a cake however they charged me for the same when questioned they informed me that since i used the round menu promotion..there are no compliments...sounds funny keeping in mind the price they charge ....staff was courteous and the chef does make you feel he gives you a visit..with a smile..

Starters were too delicious..

Live cooking station was great, food very tasty.

Was an amazing experience...specially to treat family.

Excellent service combined with friendly staff.

Excellent food and superb ambience. Feels so special if each guest is treated by Executive chef Nayyar.keep it up and will spread the word.

Indan food with a twist!!! Seafood is amazing...So is the hospitality :)

Love the ambiece . Food is great .Service is amazing had a wonderful evening with my partner .Will be back definitly .

never knows there is a great restaurant at this part of dubai....the quick business lunch was amazing and worthy....

Simply fantastic.....great food excellent servie, nice ambience,,,its great to get treated well even if the restaurant is fully packed....

Waoooooooooo a great place to enjoy a week end dinner with chef live counter its my first exprience with my family being to an Indian restaurant with a live cooking.

been to the wonderful restaurant yesterday. When you are taken care in a rajsthani festive mode and special complimentary dessert for my special day. Thanks for wonderful evening.

My husband picked up a cockroach walking on Kheer. Need I say more ?

amazing food.. worth a try

Staff Services are excellent, but food wise it should be more tastier as it says Sanjeev Kapoor

Very oily food. Limited vegetarian choices. Seriously overpriced 75 for a yellow dal and 85 for greasy jeera aloo. I will not recommend it to anyone

food was good but not value for money..

not much choice of food. there are limited food items availbe. even it was ok as a service wise

Lip smacking food in a divine ambiance served in the most novel and interesting manner. My experience was pleasant and way beyond my expectations. The staff were extremely courteous and took care of every trivial detail. I totally recommend this place and a must try for everyone. The cherry on the cake will have to be the desert platter. Totally impressive!!! I love the way the food was presented. More power to Signature!

Food and ambience was very good although limited options for vegetarians

its good, if this is open menu means we will be enjoy more

Food and service were below standard. music was so boring. Though ambience was good. On the whole, to our surprise not typical of Sanjeev Kapoor restaurant.

The food was just delicious. It had a fusion touch to it. Friendly Staff, smooth service and the ambiance complemented for a fine dining experience. Recommended for a great afternoon brunch on Fridays.

Friday Brunch was good. Friendly Staff, Smooth service and the ambience complemented for a fine designing ex

Great ambience, great food. Appreciate kind service by Mr.Sandeep Kumar (ARM). Thanks to Roundmenu for the discount.

Gud place... nice food... nice to b der occasionally..

A very disappointing experience. I did reservation through Roundmenu and was entitled 20% discount. when I paid the bill I was told that the 20% discount is notapplicable on Kebab trolley. Kebab Trolley ws strongly recomended by the head chef on our last visit to the restaurant, it was a disaster. All kebabs were almost served Raw as the barbeque thing didn't seem to work. I feel cheated.

Good ambience, friendly people And overall auhentic Indian cuisine. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

It was a great expierence with good ambience, great food n good service.

The meal was amazing. The staff was friendly and efficient. Great experience.

Good restaurant. Nice ambience but limit options on Veg food.

Good service and the manager sandeep was very helpful.keep it up

Very good place n brilliant service

Good hospitality great food nice music lovely sittibg arrangement n very humble staff

Unreal Indian food, I am a big fan of curries and have dinned in various Indian fine dinning restaurants accross Europe, did not expect such a surprise. Food was outstanding, unmatch attentive service, Indian food presented in such a special way. European Indian restaurants should learn from Sanjiv Kapur. Hats off Chef, Chef Akshay was very knowledgeable and gave me some nice background of Indian cuisine, the origin etc.. its a wow restaurant. European people in Dubai should try to get the real taste of Indian food. Thank you, I will come back soon. Anthony

Not up to expectations

Food is good ,ambience is ok and hardly any options for vegetarians

not up to expectations. My experience was very average.

GR8 experience, we were well looked after.

Food was really good. Specially the presentation of shuruwat, way of displaying papad and different type of pickles. The chaas and mini idli. Very tasty food.


Very poor veg. menu

Good but not enough variety on menu for vegetarians

It was nice..we enjoyed the ambiance..good food..hope to come again..:) good service..appreciate it!!

restaurent was amazing,food was very good,the interior design for the whole restaurent for like not less than a five star hotel,the staff was very polite and highly standard trained,they gave us complimentary welcome drink,overall it was the best best best experience and it was worth,very high class restaurent.

I would like to say few things about the dishes which I had in Options, not in Signature... 1. Sweets were awesome 2. Apart from sweets such as Biryani, Murg masala, etc, etc all were non spicy, It has to be spicy....I do not know how people are eating non spicy items with so much interest. 3.In our family , we all like eating spicy items. 4. I had tasted all the items but none of them were spicy.

Amazing food & hospitality at Signature!! But mainly credit goes to Roundmenu, for the discount and ease to select perfect restaurant for occasion.

Very nice service and awesome food quality.

the appetisers were great but the main course was fine....moreover it would have been a great experience if the hotel would have a baby feeding and nappy changing room

good food and good ambience...very good service.

Fabulous experience. The food was definitely the highlight of the evening. The black dals are a must. Service was great and we really appreciated to see the chef who made the effort to come and talk to us. This doesn't happen often in Dubai. Service was very good too. Only down side was the atmosphere as the restaurant wasn't busy, but i'm sure this won't be the case for long as the food is great. We'll definitely come back.

More varity required in the menu.

Very good presentation and excellent food!

Sabrina Oct 06, 2014

This place exceeded my expectations. The food was exquisite & incredibly flavourful. I highly recommend their signature prawn dish as a main course and for wine get the Sula Dindori (Shiraz).

Has Sanjeev Kapoor stamped his Signature?

Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor

Dubai; “Sparks of brilliance” – so claimed celebrated Indian chef Sanjeev Kapoor as he described his menu in a FooDiva interview last month With that top of mind, we waltzed, or should I say tangoedmore on that laterinto his latest Dubai restaurant, Signature at the boutiquey Melia hotel on a Friday evening just after 9pm only to find one other table occupied – luckily it’s an intimate 60-cover restaurant Escorted to our table hidden behind a sheen of organza curtains, we did feel rather specialbutFooDiva had been recognised[sigh]I guess, wig shopping is next on the agenda after all

After rearranging ourselves to accommodate over-exuberant air conditioning, our order of dirty vodka martinis turned up with ginnot a good start So off he trotted to remix The menu is a biggie, and true to Sanjeev’s words, “there may be elements which bring surprise, a smile, that’s what I call sparks of brilliance – otherwise we are copying So Signature is all about finding new things in the traditionallet’s step back and make it relevant for today’s needs” Primarily North Indian, but with many a twist We smiled at Sanjeev’s words of wisdom peppered throughout the menu Good to see most mains with a choice of two portion sizes Sadly FooDiva spotted the much
