5 beautiful restaurants in Dubai
Updated on 05 July 2017

We all know there are enough restaurants in Dubai that boast good food and remarkable service. But there are some worth visiting just for their interiors. Bright upholstery, walls adorned with art and attention to details show these places have been designed to impress.

Here are 5 of them:

1. Waka

Within few months of opening, this Business Bay restaurant has become wildly popular for its Latin American cuisine that’s a work of art on your plate. Interiors are bright and cheerful. www.waka.ae

2. Bombay Bungalow

With a terrace overlooking the beach at JBR, this restaurant transports diners to the streets of modern India with its limp-smacking menu that puts a modern spin on classics – think pav bhaji fondue and burrata butter chicken. Vintage artwork and showpieces are set against the bright blue walls. Call 800-6928779.

3. Rang Mahal

Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar’s restaurant serves modern Indian cuisine in a stylish setting which includes dim orange lighting, carved wooden pillars and massive murals. www.jwmarriottmarquisdubailife.com

4. Aji 

Located at Club Vista Mare, this beach facing venue has nailed its interiors as it has its Nikkei food (a mix of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine). Call 04-5520244.

5. Katana

The LA celebrity favourite has earned a loyal diner base in Dubai with its delicious Japanese robatayaki style cuisine and views of Burj Khalifa and the Burj Lake. Eye-catching elements of its interiors include halo-like chandeliers and handmade graphics on walls. www.katana-dubai.com
