Having lived in Dubai for 7 years and eaten in probably all of the well-known restaurants, Table 9 had been on our 'to do' list for a while. We visited at the weekend for a birthday dinner and left there both agreeing it was probably the best restaurant in Dubai if not of all the places we've visited around the world.
We both had the the taster menu, my husband the full meat/fish option and myself the vegetarian. We also chose the wine-pairing option.
The staff were warm, professional and clearly knowledgeable about the menu. The sommelier was just fabulous and chose excellent wines, describing them perfectly and in 'lay mans terms'.
The food itself was amazing. Every course was a sheer delight and just the right size for the 7-course gastronomic adventure!
Small touches like the sweetie bag to take-away with the pink or black business card added to the experience and we will find it hard to celebrate anywhere else from now on.
If you live in Dubai or are visiting my advice is don't be put off by the trip to Deira. It is well-worth the effort and if you opt for wine-pairing you wont remember the journey home any way!
