A unique and contemporary dining experience debuts at Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah with the opening of LAO, a bespoke concept that brings the best of South East Asian cuisine to the UAE.

Inspired by the ancient Lao tribe that populated South Asia in the first Millennium, LAO takes food lovers on an exotic journey, offering a new interpretation of delectable flavours from Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Designed exclusively for Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, LAO will be headlined by Chef Mai who has travelled extensively across the South East Asian region and has spent years understanding the unique flavours and ideas of cuisine from these exotic nations and cultures. Chef Mai adapts the very best of flavours, spices, and unique culinary ideas to create a bold, innovative, and contemporary menu that is sure to impress.

Jan Moenkedieck, General Manager, Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, said, “LAO is a bespoke South East Asian concept designed especially for Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, and draws from the rich heritage and simplicity of living that the Lao people were known for. Their food has impacted diverse Asian cultures and it is this unique diversity and heritage that we are delighted to bring to our guests in Dubai under the expert charge of our Head Chef, Chef Mai and her culinary crew. The authenticity of LAO is reflected in both the menu and ambience, and we are certain diners will thoroughly relish the experience, in addition to our wide variety of F&B options.”

Commenting on the occasion, Chef Mai said, “I am very honoured to be a part of LAO, which focuses on speciality dishes from South East Asia, and where our guests will discover traditional Asian flavours in contemporary ways. The LAO experience is a tribute to Asian philosophy of good and clean living, and in that respect, we have taken great care in selecting well-picked fresh ingredients that are treated with harmony and respect”.

A modern ambience with clean lines in design and aesthetics, as well as calming views of the Arabian Gulf further pays homage to the restaurant’s Asian inspired philosophy, and provides a relaxed, serene dining experience. Guests may observe the chefs preparing their dishes at the open kitchen whilst dining in the main dining room, or may enjoy an al fresco feel whilst dining in the outdoors on the restaurant’s terrace. The restaurant also features a private dining table that accommodates up to 10 people.
