It’s time for teachers and students throughout Dubai to get back to school after ringing in 2019, and to soften the blow, Nara Pan Asian has a new special night set up so teachers can ease back into work.
The funky bar and restaurant in JLT has launched a brand-new Teacher’s Night every Sunday, where school heroes can dig into a selection of dim sum, sushi, curries, drinks and more for half the price.
The deal runs all day from noon until 1am, and teachers can expect Pan Asian curries, made-from-scratch baos, “quackin' good” crispy duck pancakes and donburi (Japanese rice bowls).
Everything on the menu is getting the half price treatment, and all guests have to do is flash their teacher’s I.D. to get in on the deal.
Prices on dishes are already fairly affordable, with dim sum dishes costing from Dhs30 and eight pieces of sushi for Dhs42. 50 percent knocked off that amount? Bargain.
If you’re looking for more deals throughout the week, the venue has a ladies’ night every Wednesday from 5pm-1am, when ladies can get four free drinks, as well as 25 percent off food.
As for those happy hour lovers, be sure to check out the eight hour deal from noon until 8pm every Saturday to Thursday, where Nara offers all its house beverages for Dhs15.
Looking for unlimited amounts of sushi and dim sum? As well as an Ultimate Thursdays evening brunch, there’s also a Friday brunch that runs from 1pm until 4pm.
For just Dhs299 you’ll get starters, unlimited dim sum, unlimited sushi, desserts and house drinks. There’s also a live DJ to keep the vibe upbeat. The Thursday night version is similar but comes in at Dhs349, from 8pm-11pm.
Nara Pan Asian took over our old favorite Spice & Ice in September 2018, but has impressed us with its good value and tasty chicken balls.
For more deals exclusively for teachers, McGettigan's is continuing its special teacher's night on Thursday January 31, slicing its prices on all drinks by 75 percent.
If you’re after more drink deals, McGettigan’s is also celebrating the New Year this Thursday (January 17) with a mega bash, offering drinks for just Dhs19.
Forget that teacher’s apple, it’s time to get some pan Asian dishes.
