I am not a big fan of Chinese cuisine, there are only a couple of Chinese restaurants that I like in Dubai. Now I have a new favorite Chinese restaurant-Long Yin. It is one restaurant I want to go again and again, and for a non Chinese cuisine fan, this is surprising isn’t it? To know more, go ahead and read….
Long Yin located at the Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre has been around for many years and it is one of the most popular Chinese restaurants in Dubai. Such a shame that having lived in Dubai for 15 years, I didn’t visit Long Yin earlier.
Long Yin offers traditional Cantonese and Szechwan fare. They’ve an extensive menu with a wide range of dishes from soups to appetizers, mains and desserts. We were impressed by their vast selection of dumplings.
Hear what team Long Yin has to say about their concept:
Long Yin loyalists and Chinese cuisine aficionados can expect nothing less than what this restaurant is famous for- traditional Cantonese and Szechwan at its best.
Long Yin’s menu with its new look, boasts the all time favorites and a dedicated section offering 34 fried and steamed dim sum. Seafood lovers have the option to select the ‘catch of the day’ from the live fish tank and have it prepared to their cooking preference.
Long Yin has contemporary, elegant and classy interiors. We loved the jade green leather chairs, beautiful table ware, dim lighting and the soothing music. Its a perfect venue for couples, friends and families.
They also have an outdoor dining space. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. Long Yin is also offering a special menu for Chinese New Year celebration that is available until 17th February 2018.
We started our dinner with a glass of Red Wine. They offered us complimentary bowls of Candied Walnuts and Pickled Veggies.
Its a soup kind of weather in Dubai, so how can we not order a bowl of hot soup! Their classic Szechwan Hot and Sour Soup was spicy, sour and oh-so-amazing.
For our appetizer, we tried Steamed Vegetable Buns, Steamed Vegetable Dumplings and Steamed Mushroom Vegetable Dumpling. All the three of the appetizers were freshly made and packed with delicious flavor and taste.
Spicy Sprouts, Sautéed Fresh Pakchoy with garlic sauce, Fried Tofu with hot chili bean and Vegetable Fried Rice were the dishes we ordered for our mains. Each one of the dishes had a distinct flavor and tasted deliciously different. We relished it.
Long Yin has a small but unique dessert menu and as suggested by their manager Mr. Peter we ordered Ginger Crème Brûlée, served with pineapple coriander carpaccio and confit ginger and chilled Mango Pudding, served with whipped cream and mango sauce. Both the desserts were incredibly tasty and light.
To round off, we ordered a pot of aromatic Green Tea.
We enjoyed our dinner experience at Long Yin. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere and the service is outstanding. We can’t wait to come back.
