Popular Turkish-style steakhouse Gunaydin is set to get a third Dubai location at new dining location Bluewaters Island “hopefully” by April 2019.

Founder Cuneyt Asan and general manager Ismail Tozlu told Caterer Middle East that development of the new outlet is well underway and they are aiming to have it opened before summer.


Gunaydin has over 40 locations in Turkey as well as two in Dubai, at Souk al Bahar and the Dubai Mall, and Asan revealed that he also plans to bring the concept to Saudi Arabia and Miami within the next six months.

Miami will be the first outlet in the Americas with Asan planning a large worldwide expansion in the coming years.
