From Asian to Thai, here are the best restaurants in #Dubai and all the winners from the Time Out Dubai #Restaurant Awards 2021. From noodles to shawarma, sushi to steak, Dubai’s dining scene is outstanding – in both quality and variety.

And in what’s been a tough 12 months, Dubai’s restaurants have pulled out all the stops to lay on the very best service, dishes and value, adapting to these ever-changing times. And to help you decide where to go for dinner (breakfast, lunch or, when we can, brunch) we’ve dined out at the best restaurants in Dubai.

From budget hole-in-the-walls to fancy fine dining – we’ve eaten it all. And we’ve paid for all our meals and dined anonymously too – meaning you know that we’re getting the same experience as you, and you can trust what we’re saying.

And after a year of eating the very best the city has to offer (tough gig, we know) we’ve named our champions. These sparkling spots showed their mettle and were crowned the best in the city at the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards #2021, in association with Dubai Food Festival. Here are the 23 very best restaurants in Dubai. Dig in.
