Lalezar is Dubai’s first Anatolian restaurant. Located at the Ottoman-inspired Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the experience feels uniquely authentic. If you’ve never tried Turkish food, this is a great place to start your culinary journey.
The ‘Tasting Experience’ menu is a great way to try signature favourites including kunefe, Iskender Kebab, and hot and cold mezzes. Make sure you try out the levrek fileto (sea bass fillet) and etli manti (Turkish pasta with minced beef).
When you look up from your delicious meal, you’ll notice the exquisite hand-painted walls, an ornate firewood furnace and a rich stained-glass chandelier that add to the luxurious and authentic experience.
Insider Tip: Complement your meal with beverages from the hills of Antalya, such as traditional Samovar-brewed tea and Turkish coffee.
