January 25 marks the start of Chinese New Year 2009. Here's some tasty spots to try if you fancy dining out....

For something special this Chinese New Year, try Hukama, the upbeat signature restaurant of The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai. From January 25 to February 8, Chef Hew Choong has designed an eight-course menu to be enjoyed during this important Chinese Holiday. It's Dhs688 per person for the set menu.

If you’re not overly fussy about your food, Chinese Treasure offers some serious bargains.

With just a little more atmosphere Chopstix could become one of the best Chinese restaurants in town.

Da Shi Dai, in Uptown Mirdiff, proves that little things quite often make a big impression.

Despite Dubai’s penchant for eateries of a comical themed variety, Dynasty thankfully avoids any link to the 80s soap operas. This is a purely Chinese affair.

From the window-side tables at Four Seasons on the ninth floor of Rydges Plaza hotel, it feels like you have the whole glittering view of Dubai to yourselves.

Long Yin, hidden away in the corner of Le Meridien’s lobby, is charming, understated and, refreshingly, very elegant.

Shang Palace is comfortably one of Dubai’s top Chinese restaurants.

The yum cha at The China Club is one of our favourite far eastern dining experiences.

If you can face the long drive out of central Dubai to reach the Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa, White Orchid can offer a satisfyingly surreal dining experience.

Zheng He’s was Time Out’s Chinese Restaurant of The Year in 2007. It has the culinary prowess to match its beautifully elegant interior.

There is no real Chinese Restaurant in Dubai, Don"t tell me you know the Chinese food very well. The Chinese Restaurant in 5star hotel provide 90% Cantonese Food 5%Chinese food 5% Indian food , if you go any 5star hotel to chinese food dont forget ask Where the EXecutive chef come from. as i know out of 100 there are 99 chef from Hongkong , Malaysia or singarpore. Always remember there are many many diffurent between Contonese food and chinese food.

Typical selection by timeout that runs after the name and not the food. I'm pretty sure TO judges all restaurants by the price tags. The more you charge, the better rating TO will give you.

Dubai is full of so many Chinese restaurants with fares suiting all budgets. How many times in a year would you go to Shang Palace for a Chinese meal? Every other time you'l probably end up looking for a mid range restaurant.

Personally, I find Chinese Pavillion, Ningxia and Mini Chinese good. Chi'zen and PF Changs also offer good experience.

A perfect Chinese Restaurant can be found at Jumeirah Beach Center called Chinese Pavilion, where you can experience an amazing authentic chinese food and an excellent service that will surely satisfy and meet your expectation. My week will not be completed without visiting this restaurant...When it comes to chinese food, Chinese Pavilion is the best place to go!!!
