Have you tried Georgian food? You really need to visit Modi Dubai, in Sofitel Downtown! I visited this restaurant recently and I had so much fun. MODI is not only about the food. There you will also enjoy live performance, folk dance and Georgian music whilst overlooking the city’s landscape. The views over Jumeirah, City Walk and the sea are amazing (even Burj Khalifa from the back side), since they are located in the 31st floor.
Georgian cuisine is very unique, because it carries some influences from other Caucasian, Eastern European and nearby Middle Eastern culinary traditions. Also Each historical province of Georgia has its own distinct culinary tradition. The most popular are meat dishes, but you can also find vegetarian options.
At MODI they source the freshest, organic ingredients from Georgia offering a complete Georgian dining experience, right here in the heart of Dubai.
The brunch takes place every Friday from 1-4pm, but hurry up and book now, as they will be closing for Ramadan. The offer is 5 course set menu+live show for 200 per person or 350 with alcohol.
