We had plenty of food from Eric. The Calamary was crisp and tasty. The fried Mackerel was huge, well seasoned, crisp and very filling.The Goanese style Mackerel curry was tangy and spicy. The Semolina fried Bombay Ducks were crisp and fresh. The Minced Kheema Potato pattice was very tasty. Chicken Fried rise and Prawns Schezwan rise were good. Portions were... More

A frind of me invited me to go for dinner at Eric's. Karama, the area where the restaurant is, was the first dorm city in the 70, where the workers , mostly foreign, helping build the new Dubai lived. Suddently you find a very neat façade, tidy, and when entering the impression continues: clean, organized, great ambience. Eric himself seating... More

So we took them for dinner on a weeknight. It was reasonably busy for a Tuesday. We ordered fantastic lollipops, masala fried prawns, bombil fry, pomfret rechado, mini set... More

We visited Eric's in a big group on a Friday evening. And people were surprised that I hadn't heard of Eric's before. Apparently, its one of the most famous old time restaurants in Dubai known for their sea food. True to its word, the sea food was phenomenal. Being a Friday night, the place was over-packed, we were lucky enough... More

The food at this location is really quite good in terms of quality. The goan curries chicken tikka the fish and even the cauliflower is very good quality. This is a departure from your average Indian meal. Goan cuisine is quite different in terms of spices and flavor.

Was told by a friend to go to the famous Erics after living here for several years. Location-wise is not the best looking area in Dubai but the restaurant is very clean and cozy. Mostly Indian Goan food which is quite tasty, food portions are very good and easily two people can eat from one curry and rice order. Waiters... More

What can I say but researched on tripadvisor when in Dubai as was fed up of rather substandard food. Found this on my last night and was gutted I hadn't heard about it before then! I had Thai starter and Thai curry and my partner had Indian starter and curry. We had a mixture of breads and rice and soft... More

Ok, now I have been living in Dubai for one year. I have explored quite a few "Indian" restaurants, but alas, its a rarity to find a restaurant with the genuine Indian taste...most are Bangladeshi or Pakistani restaurants posing as "Indian". So, what a pleasant surprise, when I had the chance to visit a purely authentic Goan Indian restaurant called... More

Sol kadi, Bombil fry, pomfret recheado, prawn mango curry, mutton vindaloo! Lip smacking, reasonably priced and definitely a taste of Goa. I recommend to anybody who wants to try something different.
