My husband and I both loved our first visit to Table 9 by Nick And Scott in February (for his birthday) and couldn't wait to take my (vegetarian) friend for her birthday just a few days ago (she was travelling and spent only two nights in Dubai). The experience was just as fantastic as we'd remembered it.
The service is attentive and friendly, but more than that it is educated and informed - something that is missing terribly from the Dubai restaurant scene. The food, as always was amazingly prepared and presented - but even more importantly it was tasty! Kind of seems like that should be a no-brainer but I just always seem a little disappointed by the blandness of the food I eat in this city. It wasn't a problem here. Everything was delicious. There's nothing too fancy going on, no molecular gastronomy. Just really well cooked ingredients put together in a fun, whimsical way. And that's what I like best about Table 9 - it really is a fun experience.
The last time we ate there we had matched wines with each course but our companion doesn't drink wine (so we thought it would be a little churlish to get tipsy without her on her birthday). Nonetheless we spoke to our favourite sommelier in the world, the lovely and delightful Viktorija, and she organised three glasses of wine for us to share amongst our seven courses. Each and every wine was perfectly chosen and matched the food wonderfully. I said it last time, and I'll say it again, Viktorija really is an asset to the Table 9 ensemble and her presence really elevates the experience to amazing. I would still enjoy it without her, but I enjoy it a whole lot more with her!!!
Table 9 is incredible value for money in my opinion. The food, service and wine would cost a whole lot more (and be of a whole lot lower quality) at any other comparable restaurant in Dubai. And something else that makes it really special is that they offer a daily seven course vegetarian menu. If anyone has ever had to cook for a vegetarian, you know how challenging it can be to come up with creative dishes. My friend doesn't eat mushrooms or goat's cheese either (just to make it more challenging). The chefs didn't hesitate to alter her dishes to eliminate those elements, replacing them with other (just as interesting and tasty) ingredients. This is an achievement in itself.
Table 9 is a standout place to eat and I can't wait to go again. Good job guys - keep it up!
