White Orchid
Nominated for Best South East Asian

Technically, White Orchid is both a restaurant and lounge and has a functional set-up, with a bar area from where a singer belts out cruise ship classics, alongside a tasteful dining area. Situated 45km southwest of Downtown Dubai, this restaurant gets most of its trade from hotel guests. The food is consistent with a wilfully pan-Asian menu. We’ve found that the Thai curries outshine the dim sum, while the salmon teriyaki is more impressive that the prawn tempura.
