Kizmet promises cozy interiors, personalized service and affordable dishes…

Catching a show at Dubai Opera this month? You’ll soon have a new pre-dinner option to check out as a new restaurant is set to open its doors at the iconic building.

Called Kizmet, the two-storey space promises “a cool comfortable well-lit space with small plates and a focus on a neighborhood feel” when it opens this November.

Brought to you by the team behind Baker & Spice, the menu promises a little bit of everything, focusing on affordable dishes cooked in traditional ways, inspired by the cultural melting pot of Dubai.

The brand has teased of “cool kitchen takeovers and pop-ups” and whatever that means, we’re suitably intrigued.

The restaurant will open from midday each day, and promises a no-frills approach to its international menu. There’s no dress code, no complicated booking system and no high-intensity service standards, so we’re already big fans.

The laid-back new restaurant joins brasserie Sean Connolly at Dubai Opera and intimate traditional Japanese restaurant Kohantei in calling Dubai Opera home.

We can’t wait to check it out…

Kizmet, Dubai Opera, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown Dubai, Sat to Weds 12pm to 1am, Thurs and Fri 12pm to 2am, opening November. Tel: (04) 388 8717.
