Ukrainian
YOY is the first Ukrainian restaurant in Dubai. The hospitable ambience, the stunning view of Atlantis & Fountain shows, traditional cuisine in modern twist will convince you that "YOY" is a new Ukrainian "WOW".

The heart of YOY restaurant is a Ukrainian wooden-burning oven or "Pich", where our cooks roast, stew, smoke and fry. The dishes are prepared over fire will show you what is real Ukrainian firecooking. There is a 13-meter-long table in the center of the restaurant, that is always waiting for noisy feasts. Moreover, you should try Ukrainian borscht and take a look at handmade Kosiv ceramics, both of them are recognized as UNESCO world heritage.

Looking up, you should notice a huge chandelier. It is made of natural sticks and in the form of the stork's nest. In Ukraine, it is a symbol of our native land, so YOY will become a place of strength and inspiration for every Ukrainian in Dubai, and foreigners - the restaurant that will show modern Ukrainian authenticity.

    Yoy was everything and more! What an amazing modern twist on classic Ukrainian food. Everything was delicious, done with style and atmosphere is hard to beat. A DJ at night spinning Ukrainian music, a view of the Atlantis and, of course, the spirit of the holidays with their beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Will definitely be back upon my return to Dubai!

    As a Ukrainian, I was pleasantly surprised by YOY Restaurant in Dubai. The ambiance marries Dubai's grandeur with Ukrainian warmth seamlessly. Their menu brilliantly showcases traditional Ukrainian dishes with a modern twist. The Salo dish is a standout – familiar in taste but presented in a way that's a delightful play on the senses. YOY is more than a dining spot; it's a culinary experience that brings Ukraine to Dubai with a touch of innovation. Highly recommended!

    This was our first, but definitely not our last visit to YOY. Food is authentic, with a unique twist. Excellent prepared and portion sizes are nice as well. Service is very friendly (thank you Yullia) - the place isn’t big, so it oozes a homey atmosphere. Noise levels which often are issues on other restaurants are absent here, adding to the cosy, homey atmosphere. The borscht, Spring Galushky, honey cake, Kyiv tart and definitely the Vyschnikovka were amongst the best we ever tried anywhere (in Dubai and outside). We’ll be back!
