The world is your oyster in Dubai, with its dazzling array of multi-cuisine restaurants curated by celebrity chefs in the most inspiring spaces and hotels. While you may want to try authentic Middle-Eastern cuisine at least once, there’s no reason why you can’t have a culinary trip to a different country every time you dine in Dubai! Apart from going on a luxury dinner cruise, here are other must-have dining experiences in Dubai:
Eauzone, One&Only Royal Mirage
Eauzone is a visual delight, ensconced as it is between the resort’s pool and private beach. The modern Asian restaurant features a wooden deck and floating ‘majilis’ perfect for watching the sunset over the Arabian Gulf. The lotus-leaf wrapped seabass, miso-glazed black cod, and citrus duck breast are must-haves.
Al Hadheerah, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa
A quintessential experience in Dubai is open-air dinner in the desert accompanied by Arabian entertainment. Al Hadheerah at Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa presents an excellent dinner buffet with belly and tanour dance, falcon display, Arabic band, camel show, dance show, and heritage museum.
Thiptara, Palace Downtown
Thiptara on the banks of Burj Lake serves up authentic Thai delicacies in a stylish and intimate ambience. The name translates to ‘magic by the water’ and going by the quality of the Bangkok-style seafood, that wouldn’t be too far from the truth. The deep-fried crab cakes and steamed dimsums are supposed to be legendary.
Nobu, Atlantis The Palm
Dine on exquisite Japanese creations exhibiting the flair of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa at Atlantis The Palm. The dishes often surprise you with Peruvian ingredients, and the miso marinated black cod is said to convert even the fussiest of eaters. Curved wicker panels and muted lighting create a space that is undeniably sleek.
Armani Ristorante, Armani Hotel Dubai
Contemporary interiors and traditional Italian cuisine come together at Armani Ristorante, although the menu does feature several modern takes on classic favourites as well. The degustation menu is the perfect way to sample the best that the restaurant has to offer. The sommelier will also offer fantastic wine pairings.
