Time Out Dubai teams up with Dubai Food Festival 2016 to celebrate Dubai restaurants recommended by locals - these hidden gems are some of the best in town
As part of the Dubai Food Festival 2016, organisers reached out to the food fans across the emirate to discover your favourite spots away from the shiny lights and tourist traps. These are the unsung heroes of the best restaurant scene in the world, proving you don't need hostesses, in-house entertainment and a drinks list too heavy to pick up, just to be a hit.
From local fare to seafood on demand, the list has plenty for every kind of tastebuds, and for every part of town, because hidden gems doesn't just mean off the beaten track. So next time your out and about, why not take a peek down that unassuming side street, you never know what you might find.
