Time Out Says

Fancy dinner you can take a private abra trip to? Zheng He’s, the Chinese restaurant at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam, offers just that option.

Board an abra by moonlight and cruise along the smooth waters to your dining destination, taking in the beautifully lit Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and sea breeze as you go.

Zheng He’s itself is as impressive as the voyage, with stunning silk kimonos on display in glass cabinets, opulent soft furnishings, elegant birdcage light fixings and, rather delightfully, a huge gong, which is ceremoniously walloped to announce guests’ arrival to the dining room.

Service is friendly and efficient and the food is superb. The char siew honey-glazed beef brisket is excellent quality and the sweet and sour crispy chicken is packed full of tangy flavour.

The restaurant has an outdoor terrace overlooking the water for the cooler months, with gorgeous views of the Burj and the Madinat itself, both lending themselves as perfect backdrops to a romantic evening or a special get-together with friends.

As you might expect, all of this finery will set you back a few dirhams, but it’s money well spent for the impressive food and the overall experience.

And, after all, how many meals outside of a movie start involve a journey to them by boat?

The bottom line:
A must-try experience for fans of Chinese food
