Ostentatious Okku

This month we decided to go sample fusion Japanese on a whim. So Okku was the prime choice due to its eight-year track record of positive reviews. Although it was Ramadan, the ambiance was fascinating, albeit slightly dim. We decided to try the “O” Style tasting menu. It was a...


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.

A Bespoke Experience

You know those out-of-the-way places that give you the feeling you are no longer in the place where you stay (in this case Dubai)? Stay by Yannick Alléno has this quality – quiet, away from the crowd, but dazzling with opulence nonetheless. Going to a restaurant by a three Michelin-star...


Innovative Italian

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...
