From tried and tested eateries to the city’s fresh hotspots, we take you on an adventurous culinary voyage

Set within the glass capstone at the pinnacle of Raffles Dubai, Asiana restaurant offers an extensive range of cuisine from Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Ideally located on the 17th floor and boasting striking panoramic city views, guests can enjoy at this spectacular location a tantalizing menu of Asian flavours, authentically prepared and delicately presented, remaining true to the culinary roots of the Far East.

From spicy Thai Tom Yam Kung, to Indonesian stir-fried noodles Mee Goreng and Singaporean Black Pepper Crab, each dish is authentically prepared and delicately presented, remaining true to the culinary roots of the Far East. Chefs display their culinary finesse in the restaurant’s open kitchen, while a display of roasts and the appetizing scents emanating from the kitchen add to the vibrant mood of the restaurant.

In the day, the restaurant is ideal for business lunches and casual get-togethers with friends while the dramatic lighting, floor-to-ceiling glass windows combined with the black marble and the citrus-coloured furniture offer a sophisticated setting in the evening, perfect for intimate dinners. Two striking semi private dining rooms seat up to 10 guests each and offer a modern ambience for cosy celebrations.

Beautifully located within the glass capstone at the pinnacle of Raffles Dubai’s pyramidal structure, Asiana restaurant offers sweeping city views from every seat. The restaurant’s spacious outdoor terrace is the ideal choice for al fresco dining on breezy evenings.

Raffles Dubai’s contemporary Chinese restaurant The Noble House is set against a stunning art décor backdrop blending fiery Asian motifs and designs. Vivid red and glossy black interiors lend an aesthetic panache to the dining room while the kitchen, showcasing the Chefs at work, adds dramatic flair to this vibrant fine-dining restaurant. Adding a theatrical touch to the atmosphere, a traditional Tea Master will greet you by performing an impressive ritual, within the exciting setting at the apex of Raffles Dubai.

Not only does the restaurant offer a visual feast, it indulges the palate with a wide selection of Chinese specialities and boasts a menu comprising of fine modern Szechuan and Cantonese cuisine, considered to be the finest of China’s regional cuisines. Three delectable set menus of four, five and six courses offer an eclectic culinary choice of starters, soups, main courses and desserts. Each course at The Noble House is served elegantly in individual portions rather than family-style, detracting from most Chinese restaurants in Dubai.

Highlights on the menu include the Raffles Caviar Dim Sum, Wasabi Mayonnaise Prawn, Yuan Yang Duck and the Sautéed Australian Wagyu Beef Tenderloin with Black Pepper Sauce.

Private dining opportunities abound in The Noble House with two stylish, semi-private open dining rooms seating up to 8 people each.

Located on Level 17, within the glass capstone forming the top three levels of Raffles Dubai’s pyramidal structure, The Noble House offers guests mesmerizing panoramic views of Dubai’s skyline and boasts a large outdoor terrace overlooking the city.
