Culinary Flight - A journey into Dubai's home of pure gastronomic decadence. . .
As I was looking into places to see in Dubai, I came across this one of a kind offering. It features the best dining the Burj Al Arab has to offer, in a culinary flight never to be forgotten.
Arrive for your pre-dinner drinks at Sky View Bar. With the bar being suspended 200 metres above sea level, spectacular views are guaranteed. Skyview Bar - Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah
Take in the view whilst indulging in your first course at Al Muntaha. Dining 200 meters above sea level sure seems like high adventure to me! Step into one of the express panoramic lifts traveling six meters per second and look forward to what lies on top.
Al Muntaha which means 'The Ultimate' or 'The Top' in Arabic lives up to its name by offering unparalleled views of the Jumeirah beach, and The Palm and World Islands while you enjoy 'The Ultimate' in Modern European cuisine. Al Muntaha Restaurant - Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah
The next stopover takes you to Al Iwan (dinner only) for your delectable second course.
In the heart of the world’s tallest atrium, flanked by golden columns and next to the lobby fountain, is Al Iwan Royal Dining Hall, where you can enjoy a taste of the finest Arabic cuisine.
With spectacular sea views during the day, Al Iwan is transformed into an intimate dining room by night, with sumptuous tables and flickering candles.

The Japanese word for ‘pure’, Junsui is an authentic Far East Asian restaurant set within the opulent interiors of Burj Al Arab. With breathtaking views over the Arabian Gulf and an uber-stylish cocktail lounge, Junsui is the definitive place to be in a setting which is a pure delight.
