Iftar Preview at Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor

 Ramadan Kareem My Foodies!

Over the weekend I have attended the Iftar Menu Launch of Signature, a venture associated with renowned celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor. The event was organised by very charming host Jivewithdeepti & Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor at Melia Hotel,Dubai. I was so delighted to meet some amazing fellow Dubai bloggers. Good food with good company – An absolute treat!!!!

Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor is a fine dining restaurant that serves Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s authentic Indian and signature dishes.Their menu have lots of exciting classic and exotic recipes with modernized & simplified adaption on traditional Indian dishes. Signature Chef Chandra Chur Chamoli & team had prepared a very inviting iftar set menu with veg & non-veg option. It was a scrumptious Indian food feast- A real treat to your palate.

Over to what we devoured   ;


Pani puri shots & Amuse bouch.

  1. Pani Puri Shots (I LOVED IT) – Golgappa is the most loved street snack in India. The seek for best Pani Puri in Dubai will just end at this spot. It was so delicious & the presentation added the visual appeal too. I absolutely savored it with a happy soul forever loving the Pani Puris from Signature. Ahh I’m not even exaggerating – You have to try to know it
  2. Amuse Bouch –  Mango compote sphere that will blast in your mouth with explosion of flavors. It was well balanced with tangy & Sweetness and it act as palate cleanser.
  3. Arabic cold mezze platter consisting of Hummus, Mutabbal & Tabouleh.
  4. Assorted Fruits & Dry fruits platter.
  5. Pappad ,Chutneys & pickles  ( A must have in Indian cuisine).
Assorted chutneys &pickles.




Beautifully presented & so palatable starter portion . I have opted for non-veg platter & it comprises of;

Non-veg starter portion.
  1.  Saffron Scented Prawn – The juiciness of prawn as I bit into it , has made it one of my favorite starter. It was cooked beautifully without overpowering with saffron flavor.
  2. Olive & Nuts Stuffed Chicken Roulade – I particularly loved the stuffing & tenderness of the chicken from this dish. Indian chutneys on side, it will elevate the flavor of it.
  3. Sumac Spiked Grilled Fish – Yet another my favorite & most loved starter. I loved the texture & flavor play! The fish was very soft (unlike other grills) with balanced sumac flavoring.
  4. Charcoal Roast Lamb Chop – Probably it was not one of the best starter I have had from this spot (may be it’s just me) However the meat was cooked to perfection with tenderness & flavors.

Main Course – Dum Ka Murg, Kabuli Chana Gosht, Wok Tossed Baby Potatoes , Cherry Tomato and Cauliflower & Lalla Mussa Dal accompanied with Chicken biriyani & assorted bread.

The main course couldn’t impress my palate much. The dishes that stood out were;

  • Lalla Mussa Dal –  I have been hearing everyone raving about it & I must say this spot has managed to nail the infamous Dal Makani recipe, making it probably the best Dal Makhani I have had. A very rich and creamy base lentils curry which went perfectly well with Khurmi Naan- A delicious combination.
  • Kabuli Chana Gosht – The lamb was cooked beautifully with Chickpea. It was the first of this combination i have tried & it tastes amazing.
  • Cherry Tomato & Cauliflower – I loved the texture of this curry-perfect blend of crunchiness of cauliflower & the juiciness of cherry tomatoes.The cauliflower was cooked perfectly (yes it wasn’t overcooked).  It tasted wholesome.


The dessert trolley comprises of – Mahalabia, Phirnee, Chenna Angoori, Malpua & Gajar Ka Halwa.

The iftar feast was ended with this beautiful spread of Assorted desserts. Most of them tested brillant ,however the Chenna Angoori was my favorite –  I’m carving for for it now -sent me some please! 😭😭

They also serves some fancy sheesha with interesting flavors like Pina Colada & much more . They have a somking area where you can do sheesha while dinning. That was a hit in sheesha lovers.

I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The iftar feast was very decent affair with hit & miss dishes & impeccable hospitality. At pricing 149 AED per person, you may want to consider this spot to try their Iftar feast.
