Hi Bored,

Many thanks in advance

Many times and I like it. Mainly Keralan and/or Southern Indian style food. Rydges Plaza ia such an ugly hotel, but has plenty of decent restaurants and a couple of bars. Note that if going on Friday the beer is Dhs 20 a pint in Aussie Legends, but it is 'Metal Asylum' night so by 9.30pm it is full of IT geeks in brand new rock band t-shirts doing the \m/ sign to each other.

I think Coconut Grove is one of Auto's favourites too, so he's bound to pop up with a comment at some point. (I want curry for lunch now.)

So how was it for you? I went there about 18 months ago and found it perfectly reasonable.

Gotta agree with MM. Went there last Thursday with 12 friends and had a fabulous meal for a very reasonable (dirt cheap in my view) price. The devilled prawns were as spicy as when I lived in Sri Lanka. Anyone who likes it HOT needs to go there.

Oh and the band in Aussies after dinner were pretty good too.
