For the French chef, coming to Dubai was a huge revelation.

“I had never been far from Europe before arriving to Dubai,” he stated.

“When I first arrived, I felt it was just a fast city with huge buildings. But when I stayed here, I discovered it is a city with a soul. Every small lane is a discovery. People are nice and warm here,” he further said.

While portraying the talent, excellence and creativity of Dubai’s culinary landscape, nine eateries serving various cuisines, from Portuguese to Indian, Chinese and Japanese, got one Michelin star. In contrast, two restaurants got 2 Michelin stars.

A chef at Trèsind Studio, which received one prestigious star, Himanshu Saini, stated, “The Michelin Star Guide arriving in Dubai means food enthusiasts will now come to Dubai to eat.”

“Food tourism will get an increase in the city. It is excellent for the F&B industry. The competition will move restaurants to work harder. The restaurants will definitely be the winners in this.”
