Launching in late September 2021, Shi is a new luxe restaurant and lounge located on Bluewaters Island, and offering authentic yet innovative Chinese food. Situated near the Ain Dubai, the restaurant is the first to plate high-end, gourmet Chinese cuisine on the island.

Striving to remain unequivocally authentic, the kitchen bringing the dishes to life is fully staffed with Chinese culinary professionals, equipped to serve the delectable menu with cultural knowledge and flair.

Headed by chef Li Yuan Hui, previously at Hakkasan Mumbai and Qatar, the latest restaurant and lounge offers a sophisticated atmosphere and culinary experiences, reminiscent of the upscale destinations in Hong Kong or Shanghai. Guests can enjoy a lavish sit-down dinner at ground level or get a taste of Chinese fine dining at the upstairs lounge, where they will find a DJ spinning eclectic tunes, setting a relaxed yet ritzy vibe. A live violinist is also on hand throughout the evening, to accompany the DJ.

Shi’s location and terrace allows visitors to enjoy spectacular views of the JBR skyline, and a close-up of the monumental Ain Dubai. It offers a great dinner locale before or after a trip aboard the latest landmark.

Starring on the menu are renowned dishes such as signature rice stone pot recipes, Peking duck, Taiwanese smoked sanpei chicken, and a variety of dim sums and dumplings. The restaurant is fully licensed with red and white wines, as well as Asian inspired cocktails, and also offers a selection of cigars and shisha.

Open daily 1pm to 4pm. Sunday to Wednesday 6pm to 12 midnight and 6pm to 1am Thursday to Saturday.
