Dubai has a fantastic selection of Chinese restaurants where you'll find the classic dishes such as chow mein, chop suey and crispy duck, as well as some specialist regional dishes you might not have heard of before now. Here we round up some of the best places to order Chinese food in Dubai and pick out our favourite dishes on their menus.
Chinese food is one of the most popular foods around the globe - it even made it to our global top 12 dishes. It's a great cuisine whether you're staying in by yourself and eating alone, or you've got a group of friends to share a meal with. It's quite a healthy way to prepare food, too.
1.Dishes for sharing at The Noodle House
At The Noodle House, Madinat, there's a fantastic mix of different Asian cuisine including some great Chinese dishes. From their "For the Table" choices, try the Chinese Broccoli, which is stir-fried in a vegetarian sauce along with garlic and goji berries. This medium spicy dish is ideal for ordering as a dish to share alongside other mains. And dim sum fans shouldn't miss out on the Chicken Siew Mai - steamed dumplings filled with chicken and served with chilli soy sauce.
They've also got a wide selection of satay - served on a stick, this is a great starter and sharing food. Order by the dozen or half-dozen - Beef Satay, Prawn and Chicken.
2.Dim Sum and more at Tang Palace
At the Tang Palace Dim Sum Restaurant, there is - of course - plenty of dim sum on the menu. With dishes as varied as Steamed Marinated Chicken Feet, Fried Beef Pancake, Prawns and Nappa Cabbage Boiled Dumplings, it's easy to create a feast with only a small number of dishes. Dim sum's great for sharing - in the same way you'd share a tapas meal.
However, there are plenty of other choices beyond dim sum at the Tang Palace. When you order from them, you can try dishes such as Geleshan Spicy Chicken, Cantonese Roasted Duck and Sirloin Beef with Tomatoes.
3.All kinds of choices at Wok Twist
Wok Twist has it all - soups, noodles, veggie choices as well as beef, chicken and seafood ones. The combo offers are great if you find it hard to choose. For instance, the Fish Combo comes with vegetable fried rice or vegetable hakka noodles, shrimp spring rolls or chicken lollipops, stir-fried vegetables, a choice of salt-and-pepper or Szechuan sauce and a soft drink.
Starters include the classic chicken or veg spring rolls (8 pieces of each). These bite-sized treats are always a great addition to a Chinese meal, especially dipped in some sweet chilli sauce.
As for mains, try the Crispy Chicken which is served with spicy Chinese flavours or Hunan Chicken - where pieces of chicken are deep fried and then coated with a sweet and spicy sauce. The Beef with Black Mushroom and Broccoli comes with a choice of oyster or Szechuan sauce. A side of Bok Choy in Garlic Sauce will complement most mains, and give you those healthy greens on your plate. To accompany your mains, there's a wide choice of different fried rice on offer too.
