And it’s royal approved…

Superstar actress Zoe Saldana has been exploring Dubai this week and took some time to visit City Walk hotspot Baku Cafe. After spending the day at Dubai Creek with besties Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson, the Guardians of the Galaxy actress also visited the desert for some downtime.

Most recently, the American star checked out Baku Cafe, the same spot that HH Sheikh Mohammed and HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein visited last year. The Azerbaijani restaurant serves up traditional dishes such as gayghanag, buglamba lamb, sheki halva and pumpkin dessert.

Baku Cafe shared a snap of Saldana on their Instagram captioned “A Hollywood star, great actor, wonderful person and a very beautiful lady @zoesaldana thank you for visiting us and see you soon!”

Zoe Saldana has been an actress for almost two decades and appeared in huge blockbusters including Star Trek, Avatar, The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. She also starred alongside Britney Spears in everyone’s favourite throwback chick flick, Crossroads.

Saldana accompanied Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow on a trip to Dubai Creek earlier this week. Paltrow shared a quick video on her Instagram Story of the ladies sat in a courtyard, where you’d find plenty of fabric souks and market stalls.

She’s also been to the desert. Sharing a snap on her Instagram under which Gwyneth commented “miss you” so perhaps the girls trip is already at an end?
