5 Best Budget-Friendly Restaurants In Dubai
New restaurants are opening in Dubai at such a high pace that it is impossible to keep up and try out all of them.
While Dubai is known for its high-end places, there is more than just overly expensive restaurants and hang out’s. If you look a bit further, you can easily find restaurants that suit a smaller budget.
Here are my top 5 budget-friendly restaurants in the Dubai!
Din Tai Fung
Asian, Taiwanese Street Food
Located on the 2nd floor of the Mall of the Emirates, this place serves yummy Asian dishes and is known for their great xiaolongbao (steamed dumplings) . Expect long queues until you get a table, but it is totally worth it.
The restaurant belongs to the restaurant chain of the same name and their first branch in Hong Kong has even been rewarded with a Michelin Star.

This place is a heaven for lover of eggs dishes. You will find a long menu of very delicious and creative meals. One of the best breakfast places in Dubai also serve salads, burgers, sandwiches and much more.
Arabic, Street Food
A true hidden gem with excellent Middle Eastern dishes. Especially the freshly baked flat breads are to die for. The restaurant is very small and cosy, makes you feel like being in “Mama’s kitchen”. Prices are incredible low and they offer complimentary water, something I haven’t seen anywhere else in Dubai.
This little find is nestled in the Dubai Garden Centre extending into a glasshouse. Their breakfast options are healthy, freshly prepared and their bread is really delicious. Overall the food and ambience is something unique in Dubai.

The tiny burger shop located at the Jumeirah Harbour is of the best burger places in Dubai. They serve the most juiciest burgers you can probably find anywhere. They only have 5 dishes on their menu, but that should not put you off. Also try their crispy fries with cheese sauce!
