We are returning customers and will always continue to be. Everything about Mina is amazing. A shout out to Yetty for her incredible service level, attention and kindness. Chef Kevin is out of this world. You would not taste better food than his in Dubai or this part of the world, not to mention his hospitality and creativity.

There are two things that impressed us. The view which was amazing and the service level which was outstanding. On the other hand, the food was average, the furnishing and decoration was really bad and the music was totally out of sync with the atmospherics. This is a lounge destination so we were expecting to listen to lounge and chill out music. Instead there was rap music. Of course this is not the Dj mistake but the manager’s or owner’s one.

About the restaurant
The Concept
Ṛtú(Seasons of India)

Revelry’s bar menu was crafted with a deep appreciation for India’s diverse climatic conditions, which give rise to four distinct seasons: summer, autumn, monsoon, and winter. Each of these seasons brings forth a wealth of fruits and vegetables, contributing to India’s abundant agricultural heritage and culinary traditions. Drawing inspiration from these vibrant seasons, we have meticulously curated our bar menu to embark on a flavorful Indian journey for your palate.

Our cocktails bear names in Hindi, the official language of India, adding an authentic touch to your drinking experience. Revelry’s menu is a creation brought to life by our Head Mixologist, Vince Varghese, in collaboration with Chef Rahul Rana. The dedicated duo of Vince and Chef Rahul has rekindled the cherished memories and nostalgic moments from their upbringing in diverse regions of India, paving the path for the inception of Revelry Chapter 1.

We have visited this restaurant three times, the last two times we brought our visiting family along. The food is really delicious, we love the idea of small indian tapas. They are consistent with the taste and quality of food. We don’t mind to drive up this place for 25 minutes as its totally worth it. Thank you Mr. Laksman who helped us very well during our last visit.
