Indian cuisine is all about the perfect mix of spices and the best combination of intricately prepared dishes. These are some of our favourite fine-dining restaurants that turn the cuisine into an unforgettable experience with mixology, scientific pairing of dishes, fusion themes and more.

A date night, family birthday dinner or an important business meeting - meals at these places are worth the price tag. We recommend reserving in advance.
