Get Directions

Have questions? Here are the most frequently asked.

Here’s how, and if any one or more of these distinguishing features resonate with you, then you’re our perfect #Sufra guest:

  • Stronger community focus – You’re eager to connect with other intellectually curious members of our community, over a common passion for food, culture and exploration.
  • More dynamic and collaborative – You’d rather be involved in discussions moderated by a Sufra host, rather than being “guided on a tour;” you leave the event knowing that the dialogues you had within the group added richness to the experience.
  • More fringe discoveries – You already know the not-so-secret “hidden gems” in the city; you’re looking to access those cultures, conversations and experiences that are rarely on the mainstream radar. They’re either reserved to a few cultural circles or are often discovered only by people with special insider access, e.g. journalists.
  • Less structured, more fluid – You simply want to have a fun, not overly planned outing with like-minded people who love food!


  • Friday Morning Breakfast Jaunts: Explore how various residents get their morning fix over a different sort of Dubai brunch.
  • Comparative Cultures: Learn about unexpected links and surprising similarities between cuisines from different parts of the world.
  • Interactive Cooking Demonstrations: Learn to make some new and old favourites using time tested techniques from passionate home cooks and professional chefs.
  • Adventures Beyond Dubai: Get away from the city and embark on a day-long trip to discover food, culture and stories across the other Emirates.
