Set within the opulent surrounds of Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Lalezar fits in well. The restaurant is decked out in shades of brown, cream, white and of course, gold, giving it a regal finish. The outdoor terrace is also a pleasant spot to dine when the weather permits. But it’s not all about looks at this stunning venue. The menu is authentic Turkish and everything is prepared to perfection. Waiters also know the menu well and are happy to pick out their favourites, the classics and the restaurant’s specialities. The iskender kebab comes highly recommended and does not disappoint. The meat is tender and the entire dish bursts with flavour. The seafood platter is also fresh and perfectly grilled. This is an all-round gem of a Turkish restaurant.
Open daily 3pm-midnight. JumeirahZabeelSaray, Palm Jumeirah (04 453 0444).
