Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Hotel restaurants get a bad rep for being repetitive and unoriginal, but The InterContinental's Thai-style seafood concept, Fishmarket, means you never have to order the same thing twice. Attentive staff guide newcomers through the process, where you can choose from a wide selection of fresh seafood - all cleverly presented on ice to evoke the endless possibilities of a real market - followed by a variety of sauces, vegetables, rice and noodles. Design your own dish then let Chef Sawai’s team take over, infusing Mediterranean staples like grilled seabass with Middle Eastern flavours such as Za'atar, or opt for his specialty Tom Yum soup: whole red snapper with ginger and soy marinade or ​​tiger prawns with Thai curry sauce. Tables are positioned around the central fish counter and outdoor seating looks out over the marina, while artfully arranged fishing nets and an abundance of bamboo give the space a laidback, beachy feel.
