An eclectic spot with an unusual mix of Arabian and Uzbek cuisine

Time Out Says

For Middle Eastern cuisine that draws from Uzbek, Caucasian, Armenian, Georgian, European and Middle Eastern influences, City Walk’s Eshak is just the right spot.

The restaurant’s Choyhona concept is inspired by the rich culture of the Silk Route, marked with homely touches, generous portions and friendly, attentive service. Star dishes include kebabs, lamb dumplings and desserts including baklava and chak-chak.

We go for the adjar khachapuri, a crispy puff pastry “boat” with rich sulguni cheese and egg yolk – and a soujouk plate to add some tanginess to the meal.

We also try the truffle khinkali, steamed dumplings stuffed with everyone’s favourite subterranean delicacy.

The food is consistently good, with simple-yet-authentic dishes served on beautifully-decorated plates.

For dessert, try the asal cake – a Russian classic made with honey, vanilla cream and berries.

Eshak is a cosy-yet-chic restaurant with well-decorated interiors, al fresco dining at one of Dubai’s most-loved destinations and solid food that will take you on a journey to discover some dishes you wouldn’t have otherwise tasted.

All in all, you’ll want to visit –at least for the khachapuri.

A mish-mash of Middle Eastern cuisines

To try something new. Have you tasted khachapuri before? Now you can
