Turquoise Restaurant is one of Rixos Premium Dubai’s all-day dining restaurants, joining the hotel’s whopping stable of eight different restaurants. You’ll find Rixos Premium Dubai in Jumeirah Beach Residence, in between JBR Beach and Dubai Marina.
The restaurant itself is expansive and glamorous, with a palatial feel that is enhanced by the high ceilings and gleaming marble tiles. Two huge columns stand in the middle of the room, and the focus is on the large open kitchen at the far end of the restaurant. The colour scheme is largely copper and timber, but there are pops of colour from yellow seating and azure blue banquettes on either side of the room.
Turquoise Restaurant is primarily a buffet restaurant, with a huge spectrum of international dishes cooked each day and laid out for guests to help themselves. The menu has been designed to have something for everyone, but Turquoise definitely leans in a Turkish direction, with head chef Ozer Ozden bringing his broad experience in cooking authentic Turkish dishes to the restaurant. As well as international crowd pleasers, expect huge bowls of Turkish mezze, as well as pides, lahmacun and grilled meats. Save room for the dessert station, which lays on a similarly huge range of dessert dishes to end the meal.
As well as the indoor dining room, Turquoise Restaurant also has an al fresco terrace that overlooks the Rixos Premium Dubai pool as well as the Dubai Eye. The terrace makes a lovely spot to watch the sun set and enjoy a digestif or a cup of Turkish tea after your meal.
