Tagine, Dubai

One&Only Royal Mirage
Jumeirah Beach Road
United Arab Emirates
Tel: 971 4399 9999's insider take:

You'll have to duck to enter the tiny doorway cut out of enormous wooden gates that lead to Tagine, a slice of Marrakech transported to Dubai's One&Only Royal Mirage hotel. The furnishings, ingredients, and wine—even the fez-clad waiters who flamboyantly whisk away silver lids off earthen dishes—are all imported from Morocco. We recommend the Couscous Royal, topped with tender lamb, chicken, and merguez sausage, which comes with a side of vegetables in a tasty clear broth. The portions are massive, so choose your meze wisely: Fresh, crunchy mixed salads, garlic-laden zucchini, and sweet tomato jam are highlights. Desserts are a little too sweet, but the smoothie-like Simply Arabic, a concoction of blended honey, milk, and dates, is a good alternative.

Closed Mondays; dinner only, 7 p.m.–11.30 p.m.
