With a ton of eateries entering the (so-called) lucrative restaurant business, we all know what success & failure of a place looks like! Competition is tough, consumers are spoilt for choice & rents at an all time peak. Moreover, if your marketing game ain’t on point, you’ve dug out your own grave! At a time like so, MASTI DUBAI has (more than) pleasantly surprised all of us!
Masti (meaning fun & mischief) infuses modern with tradition; color with flavor & Indian with Global! Their array of Indian inspired sharing plates take cues & influence from a plethora of global flavors!
What I absolutely adore about this place is it’s ambience & decor! Talk about taking consumers on a journey by simply playing around with a space. Friendly & warm service coupled with PERFECTTT food makes Masti one of my favorite restaurants in the World, yes, WORLD!
Popular for their quirky cocktails, Masti is located in the hip & happening area of La Mer, Jumeirah, Dubai! Also, Masti has it’s own dedicated valet parking and a separate entrance which makes visiting this lounge super convenient. What is thoughtful is the overall mapping & placement of the lounge bar & restaurant area (‘cos of license issues of course)!
I’m certain there are families that prefer not being around the bar so that they can enjoy an intimate meal which is definitely not an issue at Masti!
I like how one place can give you multiple experiences. 😉
I’ve been here twice in two months already and totally different experience each time!
Can’t wait to go again! This place has totally won me over.
Well simply because its’
Ambience game is on point!
Food presentation is cuckoo-worthy!
Staff is really welcoming & friendly!
Crowd is interesting!
Location is HOT!
Last but most definitely not the least, food is way too scrumptious to be real!
Can’t believe what I’m saying! I’ve scored some photographs to give you an idea…
Time for a visual treat so feast your eyes!
Ready, set, scroll…
Blackberry & hibiscus tea, rhubarb, ginger, rose lemonade … NEED I SAY MORE or you’re drooling already?
Blend of Bacardi rums, salted sesame orgeat, chili, pineapple, lime, chocolate stones … do I see a smile emerging on your face?
Chai spiced Bacardi rum, white chocolate liqueur, ristretto, vanilla milk, Indian spiced bitters … a total score for chai whores!
