Bathed in natural light and offering group tables or private booth seating, this popular lunch spot in Radisson Blu Deira is one of the city's most reliable Chinese eateries. The food is largely the type you'd come back for. The stir-fried lobster with spring onion and ginger is cooked to perfection; the lobster tail cut into chunks and still in its shell, is well sauced and the dish is not too heavy. There are plenty of veggie dishes, such as wok fried bean curd with Chinese pickles and the moreish stir-fried Szechuan fragrant eggplant. Don't stop there, as there are a handful of desserts vying for your attention and the refreshing chilled coconut cream and sago pearls might just hit the spot.
Open daily 12.30pm-3pm, 7.30pm-11pm. Radisson Blu Hotel Deira, Baniyas Road, Deira (04 205 7333).
