Yuan is located just outside the Atlantis waterpark at discrete entrance. Tables are hard to get so you should book a few days ahead. In 2015 this was rated the best Asian Restaurant in Dubai!

Upon entering the restaurant you’ll find a Superb decor with atmospheric lighting. There are 6 distinct styles of seating from low round table, to high long tables. There are large round booths for bigger groups so I would advise visiting first to choose the style most suited for your occasion. Also there is a trendy bar (se picture) which serves oriental style drinks (and normal ones too).

The staff fantastic – attentive and helpful. They were always available without hovering around the table and were smiling.

First course:
We had dim sum platter, more dim sum (steamed shrimp) and fried tofu. Everyting fresh and awesome

If you ever have been to Hakasan or Buddha bar this is the same style, but more stylish in a  way.
