Boldly Italian

This month Premium visited the Solo restaurant at the Raffles hotel in Umm Hurair. The foyer of the restaurant resembled a vintage tavern style setting with its rustic furniture. But when we walked into the dining area the interiors were a mix between the rustic and refined looks, with exposed brick...

Food At Play

Have you ever been spoilt for choice in a restaurant, not knowing what to order? We were in the same sort of dilemma this time at Play restaurant, located at the H Hotel, near Trade Centre roundabout. The cuisine covers Middle East and Asian fare, so that is a serious...

Destination Steak

Situated on the 68th floor of the JW Marriot Marquis is a steakhouse that never fades out of style, owing to the sheer strength of its culinary offerings. Prime 68, so far, has only garnered positive appreciation, over the years of its existence. Therefore Prime68 is Premium’s go-to place this...

Indian Elegance

Take a look around town. The number of Indian or Indian fusion restaurants have quietly multiplied. Mixing, shaping, flavouring and creating new dishes that sometimes don’t even look like what one had in mind. And in the middle of all these, Rang Mahal stands tall and proud, looking out from...

Innovative Italian

There are many restaurants in Dubai that stay true to classical Italian cuisine, and some others who veer off to explorative routes. Roberto’s in the DIFC falls in the latter category, choosing to be eclectic in approach, borrowing from many well-known cultures and cuisines. Roberto’s opened doors in the DIFC...

Let the Fun Begin

Carnival, the second restaurant from the group behind Tresind, tickles your playful side. I mean, who doesn’t like to be greeted with bubbles and little carousels for table ornaments? The décor is sleek and modern, while capturing the fun-filled ambiance of a carnival: little kites stuck in the copper-coloured trees,...

East meets West

It’s been a long time since I visited a restaurant where every element – service, food quality, ambiance – worked seamlessly together for a beautiful and fulfilling experience. However a visit to the Jean-Georges Kitchen made all these elements fuse seamlessly. Beginning with the staff who ushered us to the...

‘Rock and Roll’ Chic Saloon

Eating bad food makes you appreciate the good dishes. So, as I write this review with some entirely questionable pasta, I reminisce, very fondly, the fine dining experience at the Weslodge Saloon. With a Canadian pedigree, the Weslodge Saloon is not an exact replica. It is more of plush restaurant...
