About Dai Pai Dong

Serving honest, authentic Cantonese food, prepared with passion and served with style, Dai Pai Dong at Rosewood Abu Dhabi brings a casual street food experience straight from the streets of Hong Kong to the capital of the UAE. Symbolised by a smoking Dragon and Phoenix, Dai Pai Dong’s interior design was inspired by the traditional tale of the Dragon King and his nine sons, and includes curated Chinese artworks and artefacts. 

In keeping with its laid back vibe, Dai Pai Dong houses an intimate speakeasy bar, complete with retro inspired leather banquettes and on trend cocktails. Tucked away from the main restaurant, find the bar secreted down a separate corridor boasting an antique Chinese teapot.
