Eating in Dubai is a treat. The cuisine ranges from Indian to Italian and everything in between. Most of the restaurants do not serve alcohol with the meal, but hotel restaurant do and so does Century Village, Irish Village, and the Wafi Centre. They all have a great selection of restaurants.
The restaurants stay very busy so reservations are always recommended. Ashiana is one of the most famous Indian restaurants in the Dubai. It specializes in Northern Indian cuisine. It’s located in the Sheraton Dubai Hotel and the Ashiana resident band usually plays classic Indian music as you dine. Al Qasr serves some of the finest Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine in Dubai. It is located in the Dubai Marine Beach and Resort and Spa and overlooks the beautiful gardens and swimming pools. The Four Points Sheraton is the home of the Antique Bazaar, which serves excellent Indian cuisine in a unique setting. Each table is from a different Indian Palace and tells a story about the palace. Benjarong serves great Thai food in the Dusit Hotel and the Blue Elephant is another good Thai choice.
The Cappana Nuovo in the Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Spa will not disappoint you. The amazing view of the Arabian Sea and the incredible Italian cuisine is worth the effort.
