What’s your top tip for visitors to Dubai? Getting up at the crack of dawn with a group of mates and driving out to Just Gaz It in the desert and enjoying bashing the dunes on a 450cc trial bike.
What one thing would you like to do in Dubai that you haven’t done before? Do an off-road driving course and then experience a massive trek around the deserts of the UAE and sleep under a full moon.
What career journey did you take before joining your restaurant? I have spent many years working in various 5 star hotels and high-end restaurants around the world.
Why should Time Out readers try your restaurant? Readers should try Feast because we deliver great value for money and a personalized service. We also offer flavours from around the world, so there is always something for every guest.
What’s the best thing about dining at your restaurant in 2015? The best bit is the exciting promotions which we run during the week including Simply Seafood on Thursdays, our Business Lunch as well as Friday Feast, our brunch.
What’s your dish recommendation at your restaurant? It would definitely have to be one of our signature dishes, Pomegranate and Tamarind Chicken.
Aside from where you work, where else do you like to dine in Dubai and why? With such a vast variety in Dubai I couldn’t single it down to just one so I would have to go with Noodle Bowl in Satwa because it is affordable and their homemade dim sums are incredible, Bentoya on Sheikh Zayed Road for good quality and affordable Japanese cuisine. I also thoroughly enjoy Texas Roadhouse in Dubai Mall for a great bit of steak whilst escaping the madness of the mall. If I fancy a more upmarket dining experience I would choose Bice.
What is the best dish you’ve ever tasted in your life and who made it? After white water rafting in Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia during the monsoon season I had the most amazing grilled fish sandwich. It hit the spot perfectly and due to the incredible atmosphere, the elements and the people I was with it has to be my most memorable meal to date.
