12 Best Filipino Restaurants in Dubai

Filipino food in Dubai is not a rare thing to find as you will find Pinoy cuisine spread out in different areas. Although the kabayan community is populated in areas like Al Satwa, Al Rigga, Bur Dubai, and Karama, you will still find food shops that offer Pinoy dishes in your area.

We have compiled a list of Filipino restaurants in Dubai. Please do note that some restaurants are not exactly branded as Pinoy restaurants, although they do include Pinoy dishes in their menus.
