‘Hanaaya’ opens at Madinat Jumeirah offering cuisine from around the world
Dubai, 22 October 2015: Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian Resort of Dubai, has opened an elegant new restaurant called ‘Hanaaya’ on the ground floor of Jumeirah Mina A’ Salam following a full refurbishment of Al Muna.
Hanaaya, which translates to happiness in Arabic, serves an inviting mix of authentic international cuisine. Dishes are prepared at live cooking stations by chefs from around the world who use regionally sourced ingredients to bring together rich colours and exotic aromas of their home countries.
The restaurant’s refreshing new look features plenty of natural light and elegant contemporary Arabic décor. The expanded terrace offers increased outdoor seating which looks out over the Madinat Jumeirah lagoon and turtle sanctuary. Diners can enjoy spectacular views down to the private beach and the tranquil waters of the Arabian Gulf.
“At Hanaaya, we take an interactive approach to dining that encourages guests to enjoy talking about great food with chefs that know and love the dishes they are preparing. This vibrant experience enables diners to make new flavour discoveries and engage with our chefs,” said Dirk Haltenhof, Resort Executive Chef, Madinat Jumeirah.
The opening of Hanaaya coincides with the launch of the revamped brunch at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam. New bites and treats at brunch include spectacular liquid nitrogen desserts, providing a touch of theatre and promising an afternoon to remember.
Hanaaya at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam is open daily for buffet lunch and dinner from 12.30 to 3.30pm and from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. A la carte orders are taken throughout the day.
