Atrangi's design combines minimalism and European aesthetics, creating a simple and elegant space that takes in the beauty of the Jumeirah canal outside. The restaurant incorporates subtle Indian touches like rattan and kadappa stone to honour its heritage, ensuring a memorable dining experience. Guests can even arrive or depart by classic abra ride, adding to the restaurant's charm.

The Menu

Atrangi's menu takes inspiration from diverse regions and communities across India. It features dishes commonly enjoyed in homes and on the streets, as well as traditional recipes. From Kashmir in the north to Kerala in the south, guests can savour a range of signature dishes. This includes the tempting Kashmiri Kabargah, where lamb chops are cooked in milk and spices before being fried in rice flour and ghee. There's also the Wagyu Beef Jadoh, a rice dish from the Khasi tribe of Meghalaya. Vegetarians can enjoy the Cottage Cheese and Date Kofta in a mushroom gravy.
