The city's ever-popular brunch scene has several restaurants that champion evening feasts. Here are some of our favourites.


Pho Real at Sui Mui

Sui Mui Dubai night brunch

The weekend might be over but there’s no reason to stop feasting thanks to the Sunday night brunch at Sui Mui at The Westin Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina. The Asian-inspired buffet menu has it all – chicken curry, spring rolls, flavour-packed noodles, refreshing salads and desserts that delight. This is one breezy dining experience you’ll want to share with those nearest and dearest.


Social Club at Marina Social


This popular Dubai Marina restaurant presents a menu of British classics that never fail to impress, from a traditional roast with all the trimmings to superb seafood fare. There’s no set dining time either – guests simply choose their preferred three-hour slot every Saturday from 7pm. Ask for a table on the terrace to enjoy prime waterside views.


Weekend brunch at Kimura-Ya


Kimura-Ya is one of those restaurants that foodies whisper about to their friends. Choose any three-hour slot from 12 noon to 9pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and get ready to enjoy authentic Japanese specialities including grilled yakitori skewers, deliciously light tempura, Osaka-style okonomiyaki pancakes and more. If you’re not sure what to choose, the friendly staff will be more than happy to make recommendations too.


The Stage Brunch at Jazz@Pizza Express

Jazz Pizza Express Dubai
Renowned as one of the city's liveliest music spots, Jazz@PizzaExpress is a great choice for group celebrations and laidback meals with the family. The restaurant in the Jumeirah Lake Towers neighbourhood hosts an evening brunch every Friday from 8pm that includes unlimited Italian favourites. Wondering what to order? The super soft dough balls, spicy chicken wings and irresistible burrata pizza are all-time classics.

Prusiana at Enigma

What do you get when you combine two of the world's most intriguing cuisines? Pure culinary artistry. The Prusiana brunch at Enigma features a novel take on Persian and Peruvian classics every Friday from 7pm to 11pm. The restaurant, like the rest of Palazzo Versace, is an ode to regal design with mosaic tiles and grand chandeliers. Tables outside are also spectacular with views overlooking the striking Jaddaf waterfront and Dubai skyline.

Dare to brunch at STK


Every Saturday, STK in Dubai Marina hosts a brunch so good they do it twice. There's a traditional afternoon sitting but, for those who like to start their fun a little later, STK also serves up a treat from 8pm to 11pm. There's plenty to enjoy, including crab sliders, steamed dumplings, roasted salmon and some of the finest steaks in the city. Avoiding meat? Vegetarians rate the restaurant's curried celeriac steak very highly. Head over and see what all the fuss is about.


Blushing Dragon at Karma Kafé


Located in Souk Al Bahar, a weekend dining experience at Karma Kafé is always worth it. Every Friday, from 8pm till 11pm, guests can savour a selection of the restaurant's Pan-Asian bestsellers, such as salmon tartare, miso eggplant, housemade dim sum, Japanese coconut curry and more. Consider booking a table on their terrace, which overlooks the mesmerising Dubai Fountain and record-breaking Burj Khalifa. Still hungry? The incredible Time Out Market is right next door.


Dark Brunch at Hutong


Hutong is ushering in early weekend vibes with its neon-lit Dark Brunch, hosted every Thursday from 9pm to midnight. With a focus on delicious spreads as well as live entertainment, the late-night dining experience caters to both foodies and revellers. Dig into the three-course menu, featuring some of the Chinese restaurant's speciality dishes like the kung pao chicken, and interact with lively drummers or performers as they stop by your table. Leave room for dessert – the sorbets particularly are a delight, hitting the right notes between sweet, tangy and refreshing.
