No idea. However you might find that most shops aren't listed on the internet in the UAE. So when someone mentions a shop, you should probably note it down and not be rude.

I'm really not in the mood to do your hard work for you, why don't you call and ask, Mr Smarty Pants

Couldn't you try calling some of the places suggested and asking them yourself?

Wow, I'm sorry if I came off as rude because I didn't mean to be, at all. I tried to be as polite as possible. I'm here to ask for fellow UAE residents' help so I don't have any reason to be rude to anyone who tries to help me. I just wanted to mention the same fact that there must be a lot of shops and i could always Google them and everything but I can keep doing that for ages so i thought it's better to ask for suggestions from people who might have been in the same situation as me before and can recommend options, which is why I assumed you were familiar with the shop because why else would you recommend it?
I didn't ask anyone to sit and Google all that information for me, I can go on doing that myself, indeed. I wanted personal suggestions. Guess you don't have any but thanks for trying to help, I appreciate that.

seriously, you asked for some information and advice. i [and Izzy] gave you what we happen to know offhand. pretty sure if i knew for a fact that they do rentals i would have mentioned that too. the rest is up to you. and you may not have intended it but you certainly sounded like you expected us to call up the shops and figure it out. in the time it took you to come back with your question repeated you really could have just dialled them up.

I would be happy to be proven wrong. Ravis in Satwa is no better - before you say it.
Ravi seems to be overrated. I tired their Karama location and will never go back again. My wife wanted to try the restaurant as it was featured on of the cooking shows.

Majority of Indian restaurants in UK are not run by Indian so the taste here would be a lot different for you. It is "somewhat" close to real Indian taste.

You can try Rangoli at Rotana, Yas Island. They have amazing lamb. There is a tiny restaurant in Bur Dubai called Sind Punjab, probably one of the oldest Indian restaurant in Dubai, they have amazing food, it is tiny though. Their recipes are pretty old. Resmi Chicken kabab are great there. There is curry house, though I am not sure if they are still good. There is China Town in Sea view hotel, they serve very spicy Indian Hakka cuisine.

There are so many options for food here, that is one thing I love about Dubai.

If you fancy a UK style hot Indian Curry try Brick Lane, they have two for one vouchers in the Entertainer.
