A chance for restaurants to receive recognition - Dubai Star global rating system

The United Arab Emirates is known for being a melting pot community. That means having a diverse community of people interacting and living together.

Having 150+ nationalities choosing Dubai as their home, the addition of continental restaurants is a natural outcome. Furthermore, restaurants offering a culture specific speciality of dishes have emerged too.

Dubai has recognized the power food holds in uniting people. A way to appreciate and recognize the efforts restaurants put with respect to food safety practices has resulted in the ''Dubai Star'' global rating system.
