Pars Iranian Kitchen
This is an open air Iranian restaurant where one can sit in traditional machans large bed-like seating and enjoy a fine Iranian meal. The speciality is the mixed grill which is served with live coal. After the meal, you may smoke a traditional sheesha pipe. No alcohol served.
Beautiful nouvelle French cuisine, served in a comfortable and sophisticated atmosphere, run by Michelin star chef Michel Rostang. By far one of the best restaurants in town, but extremely pretentious as well.
The top hotels in the city all have at least one restaurant serving most commonly some form of international cuisine - Italian, Japanese, Indian and so on. Quality tends to be high, along with price, but non-guests are able to reserve tables as well, thus allowing the rest of us to experience a bit of these hotels.
If you feel like having a meal fit for a king, but don't want to venture outside, Room Service (http://www.roomservice.ae/) can deliver meals from upscale restaurants to your residence for a price.
what to eat?
Shawarma is the most available food item on almost all streets and cheap! in Dubai. It is the Arabic equivalent of the Burger. It is meat that has been cooked on a skewer and then cut into thin strips and placed into a kuhbus pita bread with vegetables and dressing. It costs about AED 5 $1.30 for either the plain-jane variety or the more exotic Lebanese and Iranian varities. The Shawarma sold by Indian restaurants are arguably the cheapest.
Another local snacks is Fala-Fil Felafel, Falafel also available at about the same costs as the shawarma.
