Any culinary connoisseur can attest to the richness of Dubai’s restaurant scene. Much of it unfortunately took a major hit this year due to the pandemic though. To survive the slew of unexpected lockdowns, even the finest of Dubai restaurants have shifted to more COVID-friendly delivery options.
But now, six months in, COVID-19 restrictions have finally been eased, and things are looking up. Some of our favourite eateries re-opened their doors, with safety measures in place, of course.
Under directives from the Ministry of Health, restaurants are now able to seat at a full capacity. Social distancing is still a must, a two-meter distance must be placed between all tables.
Understandably for some people though, even with such measures, dining out is still too much of a risk; especially as coronavirus numbers surge once again. The good news is delivery options are now endless, so you can enjoy your favourite meals from the comfort of your own home.
Wondering where to grab your next bite? Try one of these restaurants.
