Described as “Where Eastern cooking meets Western cuisine”, the award-winning Teatro delivers global cuisine in a stylish, dimly-lit setting. Named Time Out Dubai’s “2010 Winner of Best International Restaurant of the Year”, Teatro’s ambitious menu features Indian, Japanese, Thai and Italian-inspired dishes. Begin the Teatro experience by sampling their signature Asian sampler plate, where you can feast upon rich duck pancakes with hoisin dipping sauce, perfectly crispy samosas with fresh mint sauce, and giant fried prawns. Mains range from spicy and fragrant curries, to roasted lamb loin and fresh sashimi, where one of the most popular dishes on the menu is Teatro’s miso-soaked sea bass. Chocolate desserts such as the sizzling brownie are sublime, if richly decadent, along with the lighter fresh fruit tarts. While the service is briskly efficient, this intimate restaurant is one of Dubai’s most popular casual eateries, so advance bookings are recommended. Located in the Towers Rotana in Dubai’s new business district, the eclectic Hollywood/Bollywood-swathed Teatro attracts a mix of international visitors, smart business diners and Dubai’s local crowd. Open from 6:00pm to 11:30pm daily.
