Restaurant Arabian Tea House

The Arabian Tea House was opened back in 1997 by the former aviation manager Ali Al Rais who had 20 years of travels under his belt. He bought the house of a pearl trader that was built over a century ago in the Al-Fahidi Historical Neighborhood and opened his first Tea House there. The result was a secret garden with turquoise benches and white rattan chairs, where the visitors listened to the singing birds instead of the city noise.
You can find tea for any taste here, from herbal to karak chai. Today, the Arabian Tea House has five branches, and it’s one of the best places in Dubai to submerge yourself in the Emirati cuisine. The menu is practically encyclopedic in its volume – and, importantly, the prices are affordable.
