Take The Journey

Everything started from its geographical location. The restaurant is suspended, as though floating, in the heart of a sweltering city district, in the center of the world, yet in the middle of the desert.

Ninive is designed as a contemporary urban majlis between a garden and a caravanserai. In Islamic culture, the majlis is the space where one meets to make decisions. It needed a name that represented this meeting, preserving its link to the history of the region.

Now, according to researchers, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the only Wonder of the World never found, would have flourished in ancient Ninive, one of the oldest cities of Mesopotamia. This name requires authenticity, it induces a thousand stories that carry the legend. This is how Ninive was born.

Menu options

A la carte menu

Go back into the region’s culinary history, understand the changes that have occurred over time, find the gastronomic treasures by sublimating them with modern techniques.
This challenge lives up to the ambitions of Ninive. Convivial and elegant, its cuisine is served on crockery created especially for the venue by potters, suited to the refined tastes of a clientele addicted to excellence.
It does not revisit the past but revives sometimes-forgotten tastes to a region with powerful culinary traditions. The dishes are from all over the Middle East and North Africa: Iranian, Iraqi, Turkish and Moroccan.

The Bar

Mixology has another identity at Ninive: cocktails inspired by Middle Eastern flavours. The result? A new generation of cocktails where you can find savory and sweet aromas in one list.
Ninive’s crafted cocktails have various flavours from turmeric to fig, amaretto to cloves.
Above all, the mighty skyline of Dubai makes the guests savor in their cocktails while stimulating all the senses.
