Dubai has some of the best restaurants in the United Arab Emirates. Dining out is a major pastime of locals, residents and visitors, and the restaurant scene has never been as varied and exciting as it is right now. The sheer number of restaurants – and types of cuisine, to suit all budgets – is huge. In short, if you enjoy food, you will love Dubai. Even celebrities love Dubai, and it's pretty hard to find anywhere on a par with Dubai when it comes to the number of famous chefs bubbling away in the gourmet culinary cauldron. And although one or two have departed (most notably Gordon Ramsay), new names include everyone’s kitchen-sink darling, Jamie Oliver.
