The menu at MJ’s offers a variety of steaks ranging from classic T-bone and sirloins, to tender cuts of Japanese wagyu. The New York-themed restaurant faces the waterways of Madinat Jumeirah, and the interior is slick and modern in comparison to the grandeur of Madinat, with the laidback swing jazz in the background creating a relaxed atmosphere. Service is attentive and while diners can choose from more than just meat, it’s the steaks that really draw the eye. You’ll get to pick from a tray of sharp steak knives, followed by a selection of four mustards to accompany your cut. Steaks arrive juicy and cooked as requested, the wagyu fillet being particularly tender and well-seasoned. Staff will readily inform you that all the food is halal, but we feel they should also point out that some side sauces are made using red grape – something to bear in mind.
Open daily 6.30pm-11.30pm. Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim (04 366 6730).
