Season 6 – Books ⁣⁣⁣

Every 3 months, Carnival by Tresind launches a new season. A new season means a brand new menu exploring the nuances of India’s complex and incredible cuisine. 💖⁣⁣⁣

The theme for their 6th season, is Books :) ⁣⁣⁣

Goli Soda – They made me pop the goli, and the experience involuntarily made me squeal with glee! :)

Scroll through to see what we ate. As always, I’ve marked what we loved (with a *). You will notice that there are a ton of *’s in this review!


  • Bao Bhaji – We started with the Amuse bouche, which was was the Bao Bhaji⁣⁣⁣
  • *Momo Fuku – which was a chicken momo with a killer red chilli chutney. Our server said that only one chef in their restaurant knows the recipe of this secret sauce⁣⁣⁣
  • *Cevice Salad – YUM⁣⁣⁣*Hot Sauce Nation – Which was shrimp in another killer sauce that we could’ve licked off’ve the bowl.
  • ⁣⁣⁣*Chicken Samosa – with a peanut salan. The samosa was fried, and then cooked on a griddle – Every bit as yum as it sounds. ⁣
  • *Puli Inji Prawns – By now, anyone who has been to Carnival by Tresind knows about these legendary prawns. The restaurant introduced these prawns in the first season, and it is SUCH a popular dish, that they just cannot take it off the menu :) ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
  • *Hot Sauce Nation – Shrimp mezkukkupuratti, with homemade black pepper tobasco – Another winner.

I know that once you’ll finish with the entire set menu, you’re gonna be hella full, but DO NOT MISS the paan. It has a little surprise in it, that made everyone on our table giggle with glee. ⁣⁣⁣



Overall, Chef Vinu Raveendran has created another home-run this season. ⁣⁣⁣I would most definitely go back with friends, on special occasions, and for date nights.

Their lunch menu is an incredible deal, at AED 89 for 6 courses.⁣⁣⁣

Their ‘Bookmark Tasting Menu’ is priced at AED 259.
