It simply takes too long to cruise around the world to try cuisine from different continents, so the iconic Queen Elizabeth 2 has decided to bring those dishes straight to Dubai.

The QE2’s The Lido Restaurant is taking its guests on a weekly foodie voyage with its all-new Culinary World Cruise Series – four themed nights from different places around the globe.

Guests will get to experience an array of dishes from India and Asia, to Arabia and the Mediterranean, on different nights of the week, starting off with Indian every Sunday.

From 7pm until 11pm, The Lido will serve up dishes from Delhi to Kerala, starting with fresh Indian salads, breads and a smoking chat station, along with curries featuring chicken tikka trio’s, tandoori vegetables and murg masaka.

There’s also gulab jamun, saffron rice kheer and ras malai for dessert.

The Indian nights are priced at AED125 per person, AED65 for kids aged below 12 and free for those aged four and below.

Looking for more delights? For the same price every Wednesday, from 7pm until 11pm, guests can look forward to Asian nights, delivering dishes from Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Korea, Singapore, China, Japan, Indonesia and beyond.

Expect everything from Singapore chili crab, beef pandang, pad Thai and live stations serving Peking duck, dim sum and sushi.

The QE2 will also have an Arabesque foodie night every Thursday for AED135. The Arabian nights will include Middle Eastern classics from across the region, with hot and cold mezze, freshly baked bread, grills, Ouzi, harrees, tharead and sweet Arabic desserts.

Finally, voyage through the Mediterranean, from Spain, Italy and Greece to the Balkans. Every Friday for AED155, guests can tuck into starters such as pickled octopus, tzatziki and cous cous, with live stations offering up paella, pasta, grilled meats and more.
