Dubai is undoubtedly a superpower in the luxury world. The same holds true when considering its stronghold on gastronomy. Offering the very best of just about every cuisine imaginable, the Emirate exceeds all expectations with regards to presentation, ambience and of course overall culinary experience. While it does not yet have its own Michelin Guide, Dubai has no qualms with bringing in Michelin-starred chefs to sit at the helm of its many critically acclaimed restaurants. Here is a curated list featuring the very best of what the city has to offer:

La Petite Maison

Serving the very best cuisine the French Riviera has to offer, La Petite Maison Dubai lives up to its international reputation. The space features artwork lining the walls and knowledgeable staff dressed in quintessentially French bistro attire.

Enigma, Palazzo Versace

Changing its menu four times a year, Enigma features internationally renowned guest chefs who create signature and innovative fare that is sure to inspire any palate.

Pai Thai, Madinat Jumeirah

Offering an unforgettable journey into Thai cuisine, Pai Thai takes guests on an abra boat to the restaurant where, once seated, they will enjoy views across Madinat’s waterways, exotic Thai cuisine and authentic entertainment.

Hakkasan Dubai

Located in the iconic Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel, Hakkasan Dubai is an ornate Chinese restaurant featuring rustic wooden pavilions, lush exotic greenery and a terrace serving eclectic signature dishes.


Located in Dubai’s International Finance Centre, this modern Japanese restaurant and sake lounge serves sushi, grill dishes and sharing platters in a chic steel and granite décor environment.
