It’s the news that diners in the capital have been waiting for!
Din Tai Fung, a world-renowned Taiwanese restaurant that has been awarded a Michelin star in Hong Kong and a slew of FACT Dining Awards in Dubai, will open its first Abu Dhabi branch at The Galleria Al Maryah Island in early 2022.
This award-winning restaurant has become the international standard for xiao long bao (soup dumplings), with each dumpling masterfully rolled out, filled and meticulously folded with exactly 18 folds.
Din Tai Fung is not the only new concept to arrive at the upmarket The Galleria Al Maryah Island in the coming months. Making its international debut, TVM is an innovative alcohol-free Irish bar that has proven extremely popular in Dublin where it originated, TVM’s opening at The Galleria will mark the brand’s first foray outside of Ireland and features an alcohol-free cocktail menu, alongside unique food and beverage pairings.
Visitors to The Galleria Al Maryah Island can also look forward to several new regional dining outlets, including Almayass, an acclaimed Lebanese-Armenian restaurant presenting generations-old traditional cuisine. In addition, families can soon dine at Grand Beirut, offering authentic Lebanese specialities that will transport them to the heart of the Levant.
Commenting on The Galleria’s evolving dining offer, David Robinson, General Manager, The Galleria Al Maryah Island, said, “With over 100 international dining options from award-winning fine dining to family restaurants, quick bites and cafés, The Galleria is the capital’s number one dining destination. We’re delighted to bring globally renowned brands such as Din Tai Fung, Almayass, TVM and Grand Beirut exclusively to our guests, and we remain committed to bringing unique and memorable experiences to the wider Abu Dhabi community.”

Chang’s, Paul Café and Magnolia Bakery.
