Asia Asia (Dubai Marina, Business Bay, Abu Dhabi)

One of my absolute go-to restaurants that I recommend when we have friends or family visiting is Asia Asia. They have three unique locations across Abu Dhabi and Dubai: Yas Island, Dubai Marina and Business Bay. 

You are immersed in its Asian dining experience as soon as you step into the restaurant, with its Insta-worthy interiors that are inspired by the ancient Spice Route.

They offer a great selection of sushi, dim sum, crispy aromatic duck, wok-fried rice and noodles, and a delicious range of cocktails!

Katsuya, Hyde Hotel

This stunning restaurant has come all the way from Hollywood and can be found in the Hyde Hotel. Katsuya offers a range of signature cocktails and vibrant, unique sushi rolls. My advice - try the smoked salmon roll, a classic but so delicious!

KŌYŌ Dubai

KŌYŌ gives New York speakeasy vibes. To find the restaurant you have to enter through the lower ground car park and then into an inconspicuous tattoo parlour (very Insta-worthy) before entering the bar and main restaurant. The chic Japanese restaurant has it all, offering a fun dining experience with live shows and entertainment, and of course, a great choice of cocktails. My favourite dishes from the menu are the Chicken Katsu Sando and the Black Cod Robata.

Lah Lah, Zabeel House The Greens

Located at Zabeel House in The Greens, Lah Lah is a Pan-Asian kitchen and bar which provides great food with a chilled-out vibe. The highlight of this venue for me is that it’s dog friendly so it’s a great spot to take the pooch for a lazy lunch or relaxing sundowners.
