Favourite Fine Dining Restaurant – Zuma
This world-famous Japanese restaurant is loved the globe over. Whether you’re digging into sushi at the top-notch business lunch, nibbling on that renowned black cod on a special date night or tackling tempura at the weekly brunch, there’s loads to love about Zuma. And love it you do – as it came out top in the favourite fine dining restaurant – as voted for by you.
Favourite Family & Casual Dining Restaurant – The Cheesecake Factory
A restaurant that needs no introduction, The Cheesecake Factory is named for its most decadent desserts. Reaching them is no mean feat, mind you, as the phenomenally-sized plates that greet diners as mains are often enough to feed two (or even three) mouths. But if you do save room you’ll be richly rewarded by a plethora of cheesecakes in everything from chocolate cherry to salted caramel and red velvet. Dig in.
Favourite Café & Coffee Shop – Starbucks
Probably the best-known coffee chain globally, this world-famous powerhouse is always a solid choice when it comes to grabbing a coffee and sinking into a comfy sofa. Whether you’re a grande frapuccino or a tall mocha, there’s everything you know and love at Starbucks, plus loads of sandwiches, snacks and cakes (don’t miss the rocky road).
Favourite Sweets & Treats Spot – Pinkberry
Feeling the heat? Chill out at this cool, very sweet spot. Fresh cut fruit packs a refreshing kick at Pinkberry. Premium toppings are light yet indulgent, while certification by the National Yogurt Association gives some indication of the brand’s authority in the matter.
Favourite Quick Bite Spot – Al Areesh
This restaurant has been named your favourite quick bite spot, and it’s with good reason. Serving the masses throughout the UAE via various branches and food trucks since 1990, The Galleria regulars know that you can work your way through a delicious meal of mezze, and wash it all down with a coffee.
The Galleria has a massive amount of shops, entertainment and more to keep you occupied in the capital – from designer clothing stores to homeware, kids’ shops, play areas and more. And when it comes to food, diners in the capital are spoilt for choice – whether you’re looking for fine dining, after a casual family-friendly coffee shop or crazy about delicious desserts. It’s time to make your next dinner date.
