Embark on a culinary expedition through the bountiful terrains of China at The Pointe Palm Jumeirah’s best-kept secret, Chuan. The Chinese term for flowing water into the sea, Chuan is truly an embodiment of its name with an array of bold and decadent meals which contribute to the insatiable plethora of carefully curated dining experiences that go beyond the expertly prepared plates.
Discerning guests can enjoy the pinnacle of Asian hospitality, frequented by the homegrown restaurant’s loyal clientele of global icons and dignitaries, including Jackie Chan, Sanjay Dutt and Jean Claude Van Damme, as well as members of the royal family and HNWIs, who appreciate Chuan’s commitment to put guest experiences at the forefront, with a bespoke take on culinary offerings that can be cooked to order and crafted to precision as per the guest’s preference.
Chuan’s culinary team hails from across China, bringing with them a wealth of experience, skill, technique, and talent like nothing the city has ever seen before. Choose from over 150 menu options of both traditional and contemporary superior quality Chinese dishes, including peking duck, a variety of made-to-order fresh seafood dishes and much more, whilst private dining rooms appease discreet diners, who can indulge in masterfully manufactured dining experiences.
A true labour of love, the renowned peking duck is one of the restaurant’s stand-out dishes, cooked to perfection using techniques handed down from Chinese forefathers to Chuan’s master chef and kitchen director, Sun Yong He. Marinated for 48 hours and cooked over a maple woodfire oven, one of the venue’s aesthetic focal points, the flavours of the exquisite peking duck are complemented by made-from-scratch sauces and paper-thin pancakes (AED 398 for half, AED 680 for whole). Other signature dishes from the aromatic menu include baked crab meat with caviar sauce (AED 168), sous-vide Australian black angus beef with Chinese spices (AED 388) and the rare and relished Alaskan king crab (as per market price).
Boasting of scenic views of the Arabian Gulf that can be enjoyed on the alfresco dining terrace, the two-story restaurant’s walls and ceiling play canvas to the enchanting hand-painted Chinese artwork and motifs, which took 365 days to complete, while the interior design demonstrates feng shui and expression- an ode to the rich heritage. From the guardian lion stone sculptures that greet guests upon entrance, a coin installation that brings good fortune, luxury and exotic wines encompassed in three-level glass wine cellars, to art that exudes energy and balance, Chuan is laced in Chinese culture and brings forth a novel fine dining concept, where the heart-felt service, ambiance and food is as enticing as the thought-provoking design nuances that helps bring each element to life.
