Tchaikovsky

All-singing, all-dancing Russian venue is worth a visit
$$

Time Out Says

Tchaikovsky is the epitome of unconventionality in every respect, from the faux-opulent furnishings to the ballet and the doo-wop dancing. Book a table later rather than earlier unless you want to dine in an empty, surreal environment. The thick, leather-bound menu printed in English and Russian features page after page of Russian dishes, from traditional borsch to selyodka pod shuboy (a herring dish) and, of course, caviar. Though the black caviar might be tempting, consider the Dhs545 price tag before ordering.

A more affordable option is the ‘Russian Hunting Snack’ – halved boiled eggs stuffed with avocado and cream-cheese purée, dotted with red caviar, which is reminiscent of fashionable finger food from the ’80s – or the Tchaikovsky special, effectively two huge beef burger patties doused in melted cheese with a side of mash. Nil points for presentation, but the food’s actually not bad. The cabaret (the restaurant’s main draw) begins around 10.45pm – expect ballet, swing and goose-stepping to Russian marching music. Wonderfully bizarre and worth visiting at least once.
