As one of London’s hippest dining exports, Burger and Lobster Dubai is a gimmicky treasure on the culinary scene that’s worthy of its worldwide reputation for, you guessed it: lobster and Herculean 10oz burgers, beautifully layered and cooked. That’s literally all it serves – and somehow it’s worth getting excited about.
Price: Around AED 130
Location: Burj Daman Building, DIFC
insydo tip: Avoid booking the big picnic table that sits opposite the kitchen area; it can get quite distracting.
5. SALT Dubai

SALT Dubai is a meaty, homegrown concept serving up burgers and shakes in super-cool fashion. The burgers are served on a brioche bun that has just enough sweetness to offset the salty cheese and soak up the sauce. For a taste of comfort food bliss, this is your joint.
Price: Around 50
Location: Kite Beach, Jumeirah
insydo tip: If you’re looking for an interesting twist of the typical chicken burger, try the Cheetos Chicken for a crispy crunch of flavour.
6. Big Daddy’s Dubai
For fans of American pop culture, Big Daddy’s will overwhelm you with diner vibes set in a funky 80’s theme. Decorated with vintage tables and booths, this New York chain serves massive burgers with fun toppings like mac n’ cheese and tater tots (which work surprisingly well!)
Price: You’ll spend around AED 30
Location: BurJuman Mall, Bur Dubai
insydo tip: You can play over 500 classic arcade games near the restaurant’s entrance.
