The Kempinski managed jewel Emirates Palace, has once again received praise for its exquisite dining venues, winning four prestigious awards for its renowned dining restaurants; Hakkasan, Mezlai and Etoiles, at the recent Abu Dhabi What’s on Awards 2011.
Renowned across the world for its modern Chinese cuisine, the elegant Hakkasan restaurant located in the East wing of the Palace scooped the “Restaurant of the year” and “Favourite Far Eastern Restaurant” awards for its reinvention of classic Chinese dishes, sophisticated style and seamless service.
Mezlai restaurant, the first of its kind in the world that specializes in UAE cultural cuisines, also received recognition by winning the “Favourite Middle Eastern Restaurant”. Chef Ali Ebdowa said, “In the Kitchen, we try to add the UAE’s cultural dishes on the global culinary map. This award is an honor to all of us and a strong push to continue the hard work of more innovation and creativity.”
Not too long ago, Etoiles was nominated for Best Newcomer Restaurant of the Year 2008. It is now becoming one of the most reputed night clubs in the capital and has just recently been awarded the capital’s “Favourite Night Club” for the year 2011.
