dining tried and tested The Collective @ The Grand Hyatt Dubai
The Collective @ The Grand Hyatt Dubai
Updated on 01 May 2016

Head down to The Collective and indulge in a culinary mix from the Levant Emporium, New Wave Grill Bar, Boutique Bakery and Bombay Café. Serving a range of menus from breakfast through to dinner and late night bites, each of the four micro sections have live food stations, a la carte menus and signature dishes to promote their regional offerings. In addition to the freshly prepared food, each seating areas has its own exclusive décor and crockery, and all of them overlook the main atrium with its incredible indoor tropical gardens and beautiful water features.

What we ate
We started at the Levant Emporium; full of rich colour and flavours we were spoiled for choice with regional favourites such as tagine, quinoa bil raihan, beetroot, spinach, feta cheese and sumac, mackerel and dates and kaskaval shawarma, but my favourite was lamb kofta with basil hummus, mmm. We then tried the classic roast beef and steamed vegetables from the grill, which were all perfectly cooked, and not to miss out, we had to try a traditional Parsi curry from the Bombay Café, and went for the jardaloo sali margi (chicken with apricots) - wow! After a short break to let things digest, we hit the Bakery. With its amazing selection of home baked cakes, tarts and meringues, as well as chocolate fountain, Arabic sweets and of course ice cream, you will not leave disappointed.   

Verdict
The Collective is a hidden gem in the heart of Dubai. The food is of the highest quality and the service is excellent, the perfect place to spend time family and friends.
