Better than going out

Whether you were about to celebrate a milestone anniversary or birthday, having to stay in might be not be as bad as you imagined. With restaurants across Dubai required to close to contain the spread of coronavirus, many have now introduced delivery.

Picture this, you get all dressed up, light a few candles, switch on your party playlist and sit down to an amazing meal from your favourite spot. Great result for you, and an amazing outcome for your partner who probably forgot to reserve a table at your dream venue that gets booked up weeks in advance.
