Cin Cin

Super-stylish wine bar in the Fairmont Hotel

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
Once the red-hot centre of Sheikh Zayed Road’s nightlife scene, Cin Cin seems to have cooled off significantly. Not that this means declining standards – far from it: the service is just as pleasant and efficient and the food just as fresh and tasty as ever. The lack of hubbub (and, thus, atmosphere) at this swanky, low-lit bar is probably due to Dubai’s swathe of new nightspots. It may also have something to do with the fact the menu has barely changed in the three years. While the sushi sampler was fresh and lean, nothing set it apart from something you could have for half the price at any sushi chain. A portion of truffle fries lent an earthy flavour to the meal, which was rounded off by a plate of miniature wagyu beef burgers. These tender, rich patties were the highlight of the evening and are Time Out favourites. Although the quality of the food is what you would expect from a five-star hotel and portion sizes seem to have increased slightly, it lacks the extra pizzazz required to make it memorable. As for winning back a few punters – and thus reviving the atmosphere – this once-thriving bar should take a closer look at its strengths and play to them. Cin Cin
