Time Out Says

With its airy stylishly ornate interiors and large laid-back rooftop terrace, Long Teng offers authentic, Cantonese cuisine and we can’t get enough of it.

But it hasn’t necessarily stuck rigidly to tradition, either. Dishes are upmarket and inventively presented, with particular highlights including the artful deep fried turnip pastries – which are presented as delicate birds complete with intricately layered golden pastry wings.

We also love the steamed chicken xiao long bao, with plump casings that seemingly melt away in the mouth revealing a drop of flavourful broth inside.

Although it’s a seafood restaurant by reputation, the extensive menu features enough dim sum to fill several bamboo baskets and plenty of meat options including cheung fun – a sort of rice noodle crépe that’s stuffed with chicken (or seafood or vegetables) before being steamed and served in sauce.

The prices here are extremely reasonable too, and portion sizes are generous.

While the ground floor dining area in the U-bora Towers is spacious and modern, the best place to sit by far is on the roof, where there are tables with views of Dubai Water Canal.

Although it’s not particularly busy during our evening visit, the staff create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

We’ve made repeated visits to Long Teng, and it knocks it out of the park every time with reliable and consistent service – as well as excellent cuisine that will have you reaching for the menu again and again.
