A multiple award-winner and established force at the top of Dubai's Japanese fine-dining scene, Zuma hardly needs introduction. Located in the city's financial district, it's a classy, contemporary and enormously popular hangout for the UAE's most affluent residents and visitors. While its much-loved brunch may have been off the cards since summer 2014, Zuma is still pulling in a regular lunchtime crowd, but it's in the evenings (weekend and indeed midweek) where this place really comes into its own as the bustling heart of the neighbourhood. Each and every dish on the menu is consistently impeccable, from starters such as beef tataki and prawn and black cod gyoza to mains including yuzu pepper jumbo tiger prawns and spicy tenderloin, right through to green tea desserts, everything that comes out of the kitchen is so faultless it's almost fantasy.
Located on the 50th ï¬‚oor of Emirates Towers, Alta Badia is among the highest-located restaurants in Dubai and offers jaw-dropping views of neighbouring skyscrapers, Jumeirah's sprawl, the beach, and beyond. Anyone who has dined here at night will be bowled-over by how much more you can see during the day. A set menu is served to your table and guests will be brought a series of six exquisite-looking courses with antipasti, seafood, soup and pasta before a choice of one of six mains, and an epic dessert platter. This is a sophisticated white tablecloth affair with a mature mix of couples, small groups and celebrations.
