Chefs on camera in Dubai

A Polynesian-themed resort offering seafood, steaks and Chinese cuisine with chefs on camera and a vertical garden is proving a hit in Dubai.

Sofitel The Palm Jumeirah offers diners the chance to watch as chefs conjure up modern French dishes via a system of strategically placed LCD screens which are placed throughout the restaurant.

Other attractions include a “Trust the Chef” menu which changes daily according to the best ingredients available.

French botanist Patrick Blanc created the vertical garden.
