Lan Kwai-Fong

If you want to impress a visitor with your knowledge of Dubai, you’d do well to take them to Lan Kwai Fong. An unassuming, out-the-way spot in Oud Metha, it sits amid a row of other restaurants, but is clearly the jewel in this strip’s crown. Peek inside and you’re likely to see tables of Asian diners feasting among the life-sized Terracotta Warriors. Outside, a neon sign blazes ‘Peking Duck’ larger than the venue’s own name – but don’t be misled, there are far more enticing dishes than just that tourist favourite on offer. The tattered menu thankfully features photos of the huge range of authentic and affordable foods available. There’s even a fish tank with live crab and fish, while a window offers you views of the kitchen team’s toils. Some of the flavours might overpower or beguile the less experienced diner, but there are few more genuine Chinese dining experiences in the city.
