With the long weekend fast approaching, MOJEHMEN has rounded up the best restaurants to celebrate Eid at with your friends and family.
Any restaurant situated in DIFC’s Four Seasons is, of course, set to be a winner. And yet Mina Brasserie still somehow manages to impress. The beautiful space is incredibly sophisticated and perfect for an evening spent relaxing with friends or that special someone. Award-winning chef Michael Mina has crafted a superb lunch and dinner menu at the contemporary eatery, and has served up an array of international dishes that are equally both elegant and accessible. Comfort eating at its most luxurious... if you will. Soft leathers and neutral tones make for an inviting atmosphere. MOJEH recommends the tuna tartare with pine nuts and the scrumptious smoked beef short rib.
Katana Robata Grill & Sushi Bar
Katana has long been a celebrity favourite among LA stars in Hollywood, and it is beginning to gain momentum here in Dubai, too. The restaurant boasts outstanding views of the Burj Khalifa and its nearby lake, including the area's daily water, music and light spectacles. While it may be a little hot to relax on the picturesque terrace during the summer months, views are still incredible from the eatery’s inside, and are guaranteed to be remembered by guests who relax beneath ambient lighting amid modern, sleek interiors. Famous for its signature sharing plates, Katana offers piles of popcorn rock shrimp and yellowtail sashimi, which are served alongside Robatayaki-seared skewed of mouthwatering sea bass and sumptuous cubes of succulent beef.
Masti Cocktails & Cuisine
Think black bass ceviche, butter-soft lamb and chilli garlic masala - Masti Dubai is the latest brainchild from award-winning chef Hair Nayak. This fun and friendly dining space offers a modern reinterpretation of Indian cuisine, and each dish is designed to share. Indian flavours are youthfully combined with Peruvian classics and African spices and the result is an explosion of taste that embraces the world’s various foods and cultures. Masti, which translates to ‘fun and mischief’, is as colourful and welcoming as its food, with low-hanging lights, sumptuous fabrics and pops of bright yellow, mint-green and blood-red dominating the restaurant’s quirky interiors. Ideal for groups of friends who are wanting to celebrate and be raucous!
