dining tried and tested INDIE @ DIFC
INDIE @ DIFC
Updated on 31 May 2016

The recently launched INDIE DIFC gives you several reasons to visit the city’s buzzing financial hub. From its urban menu, to its rustic chic décor and friendly atmosphere, INDIE offers a little bit of everything to keep you coming back for more.

What we ate
Edamame beans and crispy duck pancakes helped to kick-start the night, and both were delicious. We followed this with a veal fillet and sea bream - both cooked to perfection; and finished with a mixed platter of waffles, pineapple carpaccio and coconut passion…

Verdict
The food was great and the music was pumping, and although the live music may be on hold throughout June, INDIE is business as usual during Ramadan.

Cost
Starters from Dhs 20, Mains from Dhs 88 and Desserts from Dhs 45.

Open
12 noon ‘til late. Located at DIFC, Gate Village 05, Above GAUCHO, Podium Level.
