If you're in need of a little luxury, the opening of Hutong is perfectly timed. This upscale eatery in the Dubai International Financial Centre serves contemporary North Chinese cuisine, with signature dishes such as the 'Red Lantern' – crispy soft-shelled crab with dried chilli – and Peking duck, served alongside an exceptional array of seafood, dim sum and more. Inspired by the Silk Road, the decor lends a chic touch across the indoor dining area, lounge, terrace and private dining rooms. Hutong's original location in Hong Kong was one of the first ever Chinese restaurants to be given a Michelin star, so you know you're in good hands here.

Proving that good food isn't limited to the city centre, Nassau takes advantage of the chic, greenery-filled setting at Jumeirah Golf Estates. Silvena Rowe is the star chef behind the new eatery, which focuses on serving healthy, plant-based dishes. Carnivores needn't fear though; there are also meat and fish options available. With Rowe already having successful dairy-free cafe Omnia Gourmet under her belt, you can expect great things from this foodie heaven in one of the city's most picturesque districts.


The latest addition to the city's thriving culinary scene, Indochine's launch in Dubai International Financial Centre has been highly-anticipated. Its sister location in New York has been delighting customers since 1984 and counts many celebrities as regulars. The restaurant's first branch outside of that famed location gives visitors the chance to experience its exotic French-Vietnamese offerings. Much-loved signature dishes such as Vietnamese ravioli are on the menu, as well as inventive new creations such as a special steamed seabream.

Set inside the Sheraton Grand, Alice Lounge not only offers its diners tantalising food, but also a thrilling dining experience. The fairytale-inspired restaurant features optical illusions and hidden story-themed surprises, while the food is equally extravagant with Japanese twists on European classics, including chicken teriyaki pizza and fish risotto. When dinner service ends, the lounge is transformed into a party venue, complete with light shows and live performances.

Sheraton Grand Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road



Chef Izu Ani is een soort legende in Dubai en heeft al verschillende succesvolle restaurants in de stad opgezet. Hij werkte eerder ook als chef-kok bij het geliefde foodie-favoriete LPM Restaurant. Zijn nieuwste aanbod, Aya in City Walk, serveert een (zeer) breed scala aan Aziatische delicatessen - alles van Koreaanse gefrituurde kip en garnalen-gyoza tot Wagyu-entrecote en octopus met een yuzukosho-glazuur. Het hoogtepunt? De eigen Japanse kersenbloesemtuin van het restaurant doet zijn naam eer aan - 'mooi' in het Japans en 'geweldig' in het Arabisch.


If you're looking for somewhere to share a meal with friends or loved ones, look no further than the lively Mexican restaurant Chingón in Business Bay. Dishes here are served in larger portions, perfect for sharing. Refuel with innovative meals like black tortillas pressed with 24k gold leaf, and Wagyu beef tartare with quinoa crisps, all while enjoying the quirky decor and stunning skyline views. If you find yourself in the mood to party, hang around as some of the city's top DJs settle in and set the tone with South American-fused deep house music.

Shanghai Me

Stap binnen in de nieuwste culinaire toevoeging van Downtown Dubai en je wordt meteen teruggevoerd naar het Shanghai van de jaren dertig. Het glamoureuze decor hier bevat felrode stoelen en eigenzinnige kunst langs de muren. Geïnspireerd door traditionele Oost-Aziatische gerechten staan er tal van herkenbare favorieten op het menu, waaronder sushi, dim sum en bao. Deze gerechten zijn echter allesbehalve gewoon, en aangezien elk bord smaakvol en zorgvuldig is gemaakt, zult u meer dan tevreden vertrekken.

Soul Street

Hungry but can't decide what cuisine to go for? Soul Street is here to help. This new eatery based in FIVE Jumeirah Village offers street food from all over the world, and whether you settle on a dish from the Middle East or Latin America, you're in for a treat. Each dish is served in an impressively creative way, and coupled with the vibrant decor, this place is Instagram heaven. The menu is truly diverse (and long), but if you're looking for filling comfort food done right, Soul Street is a great option.

Lazuward S W, Jumeirah Village


Reif Kushiyaki

Award-winning chef Reif Othman has made a name for himself in Dubai, with successful stints in Zuma Dubai, PLAY Restaurant & Lounge, and Sumosan. He’s now taking charge at Reif Kushiyaki Dubai in Dar Wasl Mall in Jumeirah. Focusing on sustainability, the eatery minimises food wastage, uses seasonal ingredients and sees its staff kitted out in T-shirts made from recycled plastic bottles. You'll find modern Japanese street food such as steamed bun burgers and sublime gyozas starting from just AED16. We recommend the chef’s table menu.
