Head to market every Saturday night. For a sizzling end to the weekend, guests can choose from an extensive selection of fresh produce including greens, seafood and meat. 

Enjoy the show. Witness dishes being freshly prepared at the restaurant’s open kitchen, where chefs showcase their skills by creating the dishes in front of your eyes, which emanate delicious aromas to make your mouth water.

Meaning ‘beautiful river’ in Chinese, Li Jiang reflects the resort’s location on the Grand Canal. The interior was designed to resemble a traditional Asian market, incorporating  natural elements such as reclaimed wood and locally sourced mud plaster. 

The breathtaking views of the white marble Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque are unrivalled. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows perfectly frame the iconic building’s domes and minarets. 

Gorge on honey-glazed black cod. The tender, succulent meat will simply melt in your mouth and is served with lightly dressed salad, asparagus and homemade mayonnaise. Another must-try is the tom yum dim sum, which is garnished with orange caviar and tobiko wasabi. 


Starter Wasabi prawns, Dhs75
