For gastronomes, Dubai presents an embarrassment of riches. The world’s most famous chefs, from Marco Pierre White and Gordon Ramsay to Jamie Oliver, Silvena Rowe and the original Salt Bae Nusret Gökçe, have all made the city a port of call. 

Within Bab Al Shams resort, Al Hadheerah desert restaurant features a line-up of live entertainment every night and 200 variety of food options within the buffet - making this restaurant a 'must-visit' dining venue in Dubai. There are also Indian, Italian and International restaurants, each is carefully themed to ensure the cuisine, décor and ambience deliver an authentic dining experience.

The city is home to most of the world cuisines. You could head to Satwa for authentic Pakistani food, or to the Dubai Financial District for fusion French with impeccable service. Or make your way to old town Deira for essential Ethiopian fare. Five star haunts on the Jumeirah Beach Road serves up premium ceviche and experimental Peruvian delicacies. Even the humble doner kebab is well represented. And for those wanting a Middle Eastern variant, shawarma joints dot the town, offering tender meat wrapped in Arabic bread. For guests who aren’t carnivores, falafel offer a uniquely Middle Eastern vegetarian option. 

It’s best to visit with an inquisitive heart and empty stomach. Dubai, and Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa, will not disappoint.
