What is The Collective Grand Hyatt Dubai
The Collective Grand Hyatt Dubai used to be the old Market Place canteen type restaurant on the lower ground floor of the Grand Hyatt Dubai. It now consists of a very modern eating emporium that’s made up of 3 distinct kinds of cuisines.
Food at The Collective Grand Hyatt Dubai
Expect Parsi Indian food with dishes like Sali Boti chicken and Lamb Dhansak from the South Asian section. Move on (or start with) technicolor salads made fresh in front of you from the Levant region. Try the special fatoush or the Mountain tomato salad. Eat a little bit of the Turkish chestnut honey sesame bagel with kashkaval cheese, and if you have room taste some of kebabs made hot on the grill. Oh I forgot to mention you really must try the giant, grilled prawns, I thought I was at Burger Lobster when I saw these!
But do leave room for very sophisticated desserts made under the expert eye of Swiss Chef Rich Marti. I LOVED the special mango ice cream from Italy and his specially created chocolate almond bites with Valrohna chocolate and cocoa, not to be missed! The forest berry tartlets were my favourite I think. The quality of the food here is way above what we’re used to at hotel buffet type restaurants.
Ambience at The Collective
A very warm, welcoming atmosphere with a chilled out vibe and distinct seating areas. You can still see the greenery that is quite a hallmark of this part of the Grand Hyatt and maybe the odd shiny pillar in the distance but you’ll feel almost like you’re at home here! The lighting is just right too. One tip, perhaps avoid sitting in the booth type banquette seats right next to the crepes area as it can get a bit crowded.
The Collective is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, separate menus for each and you can order a la carte, but why would you do that? Dinner is AED 199. I’ll be back for breakfast and lunch but not on the same day! Call +971 4 317 2221
