Shangri-La Dubai Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai
With a name that means “waves” in Arabic, Amwaj is the Shangri-La hotel’s sleek and sophisticated seafood restaurant. The minimalist blue and silver décor of the dining room offers a subtle reminder of the venue’s piscatorial theme, while the menu features the freshest fish and shellfish sourced from across the globe, as well as local specialities such as halwayo and hammour. The emphasis is always on flavour, and dishes are unfussy and simply prepared using fine olive oils, herbs and spices to bring out the very best in each ingredient, which are then complemented by an exquisite array of side dishes including asparagus with Hollandaise and panaché of vegetables served with coriander butter.
