Also celebrating last night was Zuma Dubai, as the team picked up the night’s final award – Outstanding Contribution. The popular Japanese restaurant has been consistently impressive, always packed and has picked up multiple trophies at the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards since opening in DIFC. In 2018, the brand celebrated a decade in the city.

The awards recognised restaurants in 25 categories, from Asian to Steakhouse, Afternoon Tea to Budget, with venues commended for their brilliant food, top-notch service and superb settings.

All restaurants are reviewed anonymously by the Time Out Dubai team throughout the year, with a stringent process to ensure the very best in the city is recognised. The awards are not affected by any external influences and entirely based on experiences.

The best newcomers to the city were also crowned at the awards. Restaurants that opened between September 1 2018 and January 8 2019 were eligible, and competition was particularly fierce. 

Trendy jungle-themed restaurant Mama Zonia, in Pier 7, picked up Best Casual Newcomer, while lively, classy Greek spot OPA claimed the Best Fine Dining Newcomer award.
