MayaBay offers a fantastic Asian-inspired business lunch on weekdays.

Drawing inspiration from the dreamy island destination in Thailand, MayaBay is one of the most famous restaurants in the French Riviera. Originating from Monaco, it is defined by its unique interpretation of Thai and Japanese cuisines and its Dubai outpost offers a delectable meal in the most serene setting. 

Perfectly nestled in Jumeirah Al Naseem’s beautiful turtle lagoon, MayaBay Dubai brings a refined perspective towards Asian dining from the heart of Monaco to Dubai. The decor is the perfect balance of tradition meets modernity. Inside one can’t help but marvel at the wood furnishings and the well curated decor-from the dazzling chandeliers to the beautifully crafted kokeshi dolls on display, every detail has been meticulously thought out to create a warm and elegant atmosphere.. The views of course are unmatched, with the Burj Al Arab towering in the background and the turtles swimming at arm’s length from the tables. 

Led by Head Chef Shane Mac Neill, Mayabay Dubai’s menu features specialities rooted in traditional Asian cuisine from dim sum, Japanese tempura, sushi, Thai curries, salads and other signature dishes including the Maya Crispy Duck and its line of Japanese mochis from the MayaMoki corner.

The Business Lunch is a three-course menu of starters, mains and dessert and you are spoilt for choice as each section is filled with the most popular dishes from the main menu. In the starters you can choose from mixed nigiri rolls to vegetable springs rolls. The spicy wok aubergine with chilli bean sauce is crunchy on the outside and perfectly moist on the inside and the sauce is a perfect balance of sweet and savoury. The spicy tuna and cucumber rolls are refreshing and also perfect for sharing.

In the mains the green or red curry served with meat, seafood or vegetables is a hearty and wholesome option. The sautéed beef fillet with Thai basil is also delightful. The miso cod is simply exquisite and a must-try-it also comes with a bowl of rice which we absolutely appreciate!

We were told that the mochi ice cream here is legendary and with a variety of flavors, you will be sure to find something that suits your taste. Offering just that right amount of sweetness to give you a sugar boost, its the ideal way to end this fantastic meal.

Priced at 135 AED per head, the MayaBay Business Lunch is not just great value for money but the immaculate service and the regal setting make it an enjoyable weekday treat that we all deserve once in a while!

MayaBay is located at Jumeirah Al Naseem. The Business Lunch is available on weekdays from 12pm-3pm.
