The selection featured 106 restaurants across 35 cuisines, a 17.8% increase from 2023

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – MICHELIN revealed the third edition of its annual MICHELIN Guide Dubai during a ceremony at the recently opened One&Only One Za’abeel. Among the highlights was Row on 45 becoming the fourth restaurant in Dubai to receive two MICHELIN Stars.

This year’s prestigious MICHELIN Guide Dubai includes a total of 106 restaurants, representing a 53.6% jump since the Guide’s inception in 2022 when it listed 69 restaurants. Decided upon by MICHELIN’s famously anonymous inspectors, the increase in restaurants in this year’s edition, also up on the 90 included in 2023, is testament to Dubai’s expanding and increasingly diverse gastronomy scene.

The 2024 edition recognises four two MICHELIN Stars restaurants, and 15 one MICHELIN Star restaurants, four of which are newly awarded. Dubai is now also home to 18 Bib Gourmand restaurants and three with a MICHELIN Green Star. (See full list of restaurants below.)

Row on 45 from acclaimed British Chef Jason Atherton is not only new to the Guide but goes straight in with two MICHELIN Stars. It joins the stellar line up of Dubai restaurants with two MICHELIN Stars namely Il Ristorante – Niko Romito, STAY by Yannick Alléno, and Trèsind Studio.

Orfali Bros is now a recipient of a MICHELIN star. Run by three Syrian brothers, the restaurant has matured and developed and having previously received a Bib Gourmand. It is joined by three new One MICHELIN star restaurants including La Dame de Pic by acclaimed chef Anne-Sophie Pic, Smoked Room by chef Dani Garcia, and Sagetsu by Tetsuya under talented chef Tetsuya Wakuda.

All the restaurants awarded one MICHELIN Star in the 2023 selection maintain their distinction this year.

Some 35 different types of cuisine are represented across the 106 restaurants, with the selection underpinning Dubai’s burgeoning culinary scene, as well as its commitment to delivering exceptional dining experiences across the city.

Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), expressed pride in celebrating the third edition of the MICHELIN Guide Dubai. He highlighted the journey since its debut in 2022 and commended the restaurants, restaurateurs, chefs, and other talents for their achievements. Dubai’s culinary scene continues to be a key pillar of the wider offerings that are making it one of the best cities to visit, live and work in, with diverse gastronomic offerings catering to all tastes and budgets for our visitors and residents.’

Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of The MICHELIN Guides, also acknowledged Dubai’s status as an international gastronomic destination, noting its continuous impressive growth. ‘Its appeal isn’t just with international travellers or local gourmets; talented chefs and restaurateurs from around the world are now also attracted by its vibrant dining scene and arrive keen to make their own mark in the city. With so many different styles of restaurant and types of cuisine, there really is something for everyone.’

Dubai is renowned for being a culinary capital and plays host to a diverse selection of more than 13,000 restaurants and eateries across the city, from street food, to hidden gems and fine dining, catering to almost 200 nationalities living in the city.

As one of the oldest and most prestigious food guides globally, the MICHELIN Guide has been rating restaurants anonymously since its inception in the 1900s through a three-star system, as well as Bib Gourmand which recognises reasonably priced quality cuisine. MICHELIN Green Star awards were introduced in 2020 and recognise restaurants at the forefront of the industry when it comes to their sustainable practices.

Last June, the MICHELIN Guide announced that it is expanding its culinary reviews to Doha, Qatar. Independent, anonymous inspectors have been exploring Doha to select the city’s top dining venues.
