This home-grown Japanese restaurant provides for a truly unique experience. You can sit at the chef’s table and enjoy your meal with others sitting there. They’re particularly known for their Ramen but their food all round is pretty delicious.
3. Hashmi Barbecue Restaurant
A traditional East African restaurant that opened during Covid which has now expanded into double of its capacity. That should say a lot. Make sure to try their well-known Mishkaki, meat on a stick) and Chooza chicken (perfectly flavoured spicy chiken), their food is perfectly spiced and sure to tantalize your taste buds – especially if you’re into spices.
This Egyptian place makes the best lamb chops in town. They’ve been doing this for over thirty years and they are good at it. Their lamb chops are succulent and oh, so well-flavoured.

Make sure to order their Falafels and Lamb Chops and ask for their green sauce – this will NOT disappoint.
5. Hyperama Diner
This South African restaurant will have every South African feeling all the feels. With an adjoining grocery shop that brings in everything South African, a meat shop next door, everything will just be accentuated. Their grilled prawns – 6 pc are amazing oozing with a lemon-butter sauce that flavours their yellow rice. The Camps Bay prawn pizza is just as delicious moving this whole setup onto a pizza. Their slap chips are a must-try and are long-cut fries that are delicious in vinegar.
China Town is the new addition to Dubai Mall and it does not disappoint. We’d been wanting to try Hotpot for a while especially since our recent trip to Malaysia. We visited this place during Ramadhan and it was packed at the time of breaking the fast which says quite a bit taking into consideration this is the biggest mall in the world. The idea is choose a soup base, choose some vegetables, some meat, starches and pick your favorite condiments and enjoy! I was very impressed by the range of delicious meat and diversity of the condiments. Food is served promptly, and it’s a self-serve with the condiments and an assortment of fruits. This place really is what you make of it, you’re essentially the cook with the very best ingredients. Go hungry and pace yourself! Amazing and intense!
