Buddha-Bar is famed for its unique food, eclectic atmosphere and ambient music from the on-site DJ.

By Elite Traveler

Widely considered to be one of the best venues in Dubai, the Buddha-Bar is located in the Grosvenor House Hotel. The name will become plainly obvious as soon as you walk in – there is a giant Buddha statue that watches over the lavish dining room. Actually three venues — a restaurant, bar and outdoor lounge opening onto the Arabian Sea — Buddha-Bar is famed for its unique food, eclectic atmosphere and ambient music from an on-site DJ. The sumptuous restaurant serves a fusion of sushi, Chinese and Thai food, with a bar that plays host to Dubai’s stylish crowds. The menu offers the best of every corner of Asian cuisine and usually such a wide-ranging menu would usually be a warning sign. However, Buddha-Bar succeeds in delivering beautiful versions of everything from Chinese dim sum to traditional Thai curries.
