Expert review of Zheng He's

A wonderful setting for a truly excellent Chinese.

Dubai isn't awash with Chinese restaurants, but thankfully the few that have opened their doors have rarely failed to impress. Most definitely towards the top of the list is Zheng He's, idyllically sat in the Mina A'Salam hotel by the waterway and just a hop and skip from the inviting Madinat Jumeirah beach.  

Food and drink: 

Zheng He's menu doesn't venture from its Chinese origins, but has absolutely mouthwatering results.  

Recommended dishes: 

There's a great variety of dim sums, served in threes (which could lead to a few arguments). If you want the full traditional Chinese experience, have the classic Peking duck, beautifully prepared and presented.  

Ambience: 

While the decor and setting is immaculately and meticulously presented, and appears quite formal, it's actually rather relaxed. That said, the noise level is rarely raised high than the satisfied groan of a filled stomach or the clink of chopsticks on bowls. 

Service: 

Excellent throughout.  

Location: 

Zheng He's is sat on the lower level of the Mina A'Salam, the Arabian-inpsired hotel that is part of the sprawling Madinat Jumeirah beachside complex. It's just by the side of the manmade waterways out the back, and just a short stroll from the beach, which is visible across the other side.  

Price advice: 

It's not inexpensive. A meal for two will probably cost upwards of 500 dirhams. Alcohol is also served, which can bump up the cost somewhat. 

Tables to book: 

I'd recommend booking an outdoor table if the sun is behaving itself. Even if it is manmade, the waterway is a great spot to enjoy your Chinese beside.
