Dubai is full of many many Lebanese restaurants, that you need to try many of them because they are really good. Still, Qutoof is a Dubai restaurants gem in the rough. Word of warning for those looking for vegetarian food, this is a hard to find option on a Lebanese restaurant’s cuisine. On the brighter side, the average price is $40 for 2 persons (no spirits) and it’s open from 11AM till 5AM. The entertainment program includes live music and Arabic songs!

Rasoi Indian Restaurant, Coral Deira Hotel

Not only is it an authentic Indian restaurant, Rasoi is also a perfect destination to chill with your family. Popular for their superb selection of authentic Mughlai – North Indian cuisine, this restaurant takes pride in being the only outlet of its kind in the Middle East. Due to exotic atmosphere that takes pretty much a huge chunk on the Indian culture, and perfectly spiced Indian food, Rasoi is the place to get a sense of what India is all about, while in Dubai.
