“Atlantis' newest gem- you won't be disappointed!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Yuan is Atlantis' Asian-fusion restaurant, and I believe it's one of the newer restaurants to open at the resort.
It was wonderful! The decor was beautiful- falling right in line with Atlantis' level of luxury.

The food was delicious as well- I had the best noodles of my life! Many Asian dishes that are both familiar and innovative, totally worthy of their fancy surroundings without intimidating simpler palettes.

Loved it!

“Very good food.”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Extremely tasty Peking Duck to start, although I found the pancakes a bit 'doughy'. Nice touch that the super attentive staff made our rolls for us, leaving the squares of crispy skin on the platter for us to choose as required. Main of Char Siu Pork was easily the best Chinese Pork I've ever tasted, and my companions equally enthused. Pork Belly main was not rendered enough and a little fatty. Prawns with king crab were good although the prawns were a little bland...steamed only? Sides of fried rice and a spicy noodle dish were very good. Chocolate pudding was functional but not wowing. Overall, service was lovely.

“Probably the Best Chinese I have ever experienced”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Dear friends of Tripadvisors, as you can see from my profile, I do travel quite a lot and eat out several times a week. The experience at the Yuan Restaurant in the Atlantis Hotel was amazing.We went there with my wife and kids. The decoration of the place is magnificent and avoids usual cliches of red dragons. The service is superb, with Real connoisseurs explaining about the dishes. The food a Marvel ! we had several Dim Sums to start, followed by whole smoked tea chicken tea, a whole Peking Duck. Some beef, Tofu with greens and mushrooms. Exceptionally good ! not only the best Chinese in Dubai but probably at my personal taste the best in the world.
Well done to the Restaurant MAnager, she is adorable by the way and Bravo for the staff.
What an experience

“Dubai does Hakkasan”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Seriously GOOD food, in a seriously good hotel. Yuan prides itself on authentic cuisine with some trademark dishes including crispy duck skin, wasabi prawns and plum cocktails. Unlike most Chinese restaurants it also has a very strong dessert menu - it's cheesecake is a work of art.

We had a brilliant time here, really loved the Atlantis.
