Business Bay has to be one of the most fashionable areas in Dubai. It is only a stone’s throw from Dubai Mall, but the beautiful and impressive high-rises, the expensive hotels, and of course the beautiful Khor Dubai make this district very beautiful. Josh and I used to head out to Business Bay quite a lot for a meal or a drink! Because there are quite a lot of amazing restaurants in Business Bay, I have made a list of the Best restaurants in Business Bay. Here are the best Business Bay Restaurants.

Mama'esh Business Bay
MAMA’ESH is a very popular restaurant in Business Bay. It serves delicious Levantine street food and is well-known for its flatbreads and long pizzas covered in cheese. You can head down for lunch, dinner and breakfast and I would recommend you try the Manakish and the Breakfast platter. They also serve some great desserts such as their Nutella Cookies. This restaurant in Business Bay is very cosy and offers free wifi to all its guests.
Basta! Business Bay
Looking for a great Italian restaurant in Business Bay in an incredible setting, with the most amazing view? Then you need to head to BASTA! BASTA! In Business Bay is located in the Renaissance Downtown Hotel and serves the most amazing pastas. I am also in love with their tiramisu, and their décor is perfect for the gram! This Business Bay restaurant is a must-go-to when you love Italian and are looking for some amazing views.
Izakaya Restaurant Business Bay
Sushi lovers! This Business Bay Restaurant is for you! Izakaya is a Japanese restaurant located in in the JW Marriott Marquis Business Bay. Get ready for some great sushi or – if you are not all that into raw fish, you can also opt in for the Teriyaki experience. They also have a wasabi girl that comes and makes wasabi at your table! They also serve delicious wagyu and you can chase it with a nice cup of sake. Dining at Izakaya is a gastronomical experience you should not miss out on!
Han Cuisine Restaurant
Han Cuisine Restaurant Business Bay is a Chinese Restaurant with a great Chinese themed décor. If you are looking for some original Chinese tastes – not necessarily the anglicised versions, then Han Cuisine Restaurant will be a great fit for you. Try their Spinach Chicken Broth or their Pumpin Soup with Okra if you are looking for something healthy, or their Hong Kong fried eggplant if you want something comforting.
Enso Sushi Burrito and poke restaurant business bay
Another great healthy restaurant in Busines Bay is Enso Sushi Burrito and Poke Bar. This great restaurant offers the most beautiful Poke bowls together with freshly made sushi – what more can you wish for? If you or your partner are not necessarily into poke bowls, you can always order one of their delicately made sushi burritos.
Moshi Business Bay
Moshi was honestly one of our favourite places to eat sushi. Every Monday Moshi organised a Monday Madness where you would be able to get all you can eat sushi for 89 dhs including your choice of lemonade or mint-lemonade. Their Sushi is great and I especially loved the soft shell crab sushi. Also try the chicken katsu sushi and the falafel sushi. I know it sounds a bit horrible but they are delicious! If you are looking for an affordable sushi restaurant in Business Bay, Moshi is the one to look out for!
Brews Cafe Business Bay Restaurant
Brews Café in Business Bay is a café where you can get a nice cup of coffee and order great burgers and breakfasts. I would recommend their avocado on sourdough toast. Their sourdough is absolutely glorious and their avocado was nice and ripe. They also serve scrambled eggs on toast and French toast. If you are looking for something a bit more substantial, you can go for one of the burgers or of course for a nice Caesar salad!
La maisonBusiness Bay Restaurant
La Maison Business Bay – not to be confused with La Maison on the Palm, is a Business Bay restaurant serving up some great Mediterranean and Western dishes. They do nice pasta’s, and I would recommend ordering a mezze platter to share if you are with your partner or a group of friends. The Asian menu of La Maison offers Asian staples such as shrimp balls, noodles, dumplings, biryani, and of course the fan favourite: butter chicken.
How could I make a list of the best restaurants in Business Bay and leave out one of my favourite vegetarian Indian Restaurants ever: Kamat. Kamat offers a great and family friendly dining experience where you get to order some amazing vegetarian Indian dishes. Choose the chicken kolhapuri if you are into spice. Their Butter Paneer is very nice, and of course their Idly Sambar is very comforting. If you are looking for something different and never had a Masala Dosa before, I would highly recommend you ordering it. Masala Dosa is a pancake filled with potato, accompanied with some nice sauces to dip your pancake in. It is eaten by hand and very filling. When I lived in Dubai, I had a dosa almost every day!
Another restaurant I could not leave out of this write up about the best restaurants in Business Bay is Miss Tess. At this Asian restaurant I had some of the best Thai green curry outside of Thailand. Miss Tess does a vegan night once every two or four weeks depending on the season where you pay 100 dhs to enjoy some of the best vegan Asian food in town. When you head to Miss Tess you will also be treated to a dance routine, and of course a totally Asian décor. You can also head to their bar which is styled like an Asian back-alley dive bar. All really nice!
