Two of Alshaya’s restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory and P.F. Chang’s, have been named among Dubai and Abu Dhabi’s favourite restaurants in Zomato’s Users Choice Awards, which are decided entirely on votes by the public.

The Cheesecake Factory won awards for Best Cheesecake in Dubai and Restaurant of the Year Casual Dine in Abu Dhabi, while P.F. Chang’s was awarded the Best Pan-Asian Casual Dine in Abu Dhabi at the recent Emirates NBD – Bon Appetit’ Zomato User’s Choice Awards.

Zomato, the global food discovery and UAE’s leading online food ordering platform, provides in-depth restaurant information for over 1.4 million restaurants across 24 countries. Nominations for the awards were based on Zomato user ratings and reviews, and consumers then voted for their favourite restaurants across various categories.

Guests loved The Cheesecake Factory’s extensive menu, distinctive décor and a mouth-watering choice of more than 30 signature cheesecakes and desserts. P.F. Chang’s won favour for expressing a perfect balance between the Asian tradition and modern American style while maintaining its focus on guest comfort, warm hospitality and attentive, personable service.

 “Eye-catching décor, lively ambiance, warm hospitality, and providing a truly memorable dining experience to our guests are synonymous with our food brands, wherever we operate,” said Ian Toal, President of Alshaya’s Food Division. “Winning the Zomato User’s Choice Awards is a testament to the passion and dedication of our great teams.”

Alshaya offers customers a choice of more than 25 food brands across the Middle East – including Starbucks, The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang’s, Shake Shack, IHOP, Babel, Raising Cane’s and Pizza Express.
