At Tean, at the Jumeirah At Saadiyat Island Resort, you can immerse yourself in the flavours of the region, and experience real Levantine dining culture, just footsteps away from the limitless sea.
Tean prides itself on using the finest ingredients available to elevate traditional Arabic cuisine. Grilled, spiced meats and seafood dishes are cooked the traditional Levantine way. But these authentic dishes are given a modern edge and beautiful presentation.
The menu was perfected by the restaurant's former chef de cuisine, Mahmoud Bayoumi, who is now the head chef for the Jumeirah Group. There's a selection of shawarmas and wraps, mezzes and soups, and sambouseks to share. Emirati specialities include Machboos Robian, with shrimp, rice and nuts; and an Arabic Mix Grill.
Tean signature dishes include Turkish Imam Bayildi (beef cheek, tomato sauce and grilled smoked eggplant), and the Homemade Manti (Turkish dumpling with yoghurt sauce, minced lamb and pine nuts and coriander), among others.
There's also a seafood section on the menu as well as various sides and sweets to add that extra flavour experience.
