Time Out Says
One of the city’s longest-standing international restaurants, Teatro’s menu globetrots from Japan to India, Italy to China, without breaking a sweat. The most surprising part? It manages to do the vast majority of its dishes impressively well.
Stop for a drink at the bar before heading to the table – some of which overlook the endless activity on this busy strip of Sheikh Zayed Road. It’s a cosy dining room, and the fact it’s rarely far from full really adds to the atmosphere (and opportunities for previewing dishes as they’re served to the table next to you).
Highlights from the global array of starters include meaty crab cakes, fresh beef carpaccio and tango Buffalo chicken wings (yes, really), but mains are tougher to narrow down. It’s also not particularly great value across the board – you’ll easily spend Dhs400 for two, without drinks. Some dishes are more reasonably priced than others.
In the mood for Indian? Go for the lamb seekh kebab. Italian? Thin, crispy pizzas are a treat. It’s only on the sushi front (and there is heaps to choose from) that Teatro is just off the mark, and veers into the inexpert territory you might expect from such a cross-continental restaurant.
Sushi fans aside, it’s hard not to find a dish you’re not in the mood for here.
An oldie, but still up there for a fussy group of foodies.
