Quite the contrast to the marble-gold-overload of the rest of the Emirates Palace, Sayad serves the city's finest seafood in a striking aquamarine setting. Head here for Parmesan-crusted turbot fillet served with quinoa in a velvety fish velouté, charcoaled oysters and beetroot risotto, or keep things simple with the catch of the day served grilled, pan-seared, steamed or poached.
There's a handful of non-fish dishes and one lonely vegetarian option if you're with a party including some non-seafood fans. Reservations essential.
