Hell’s Kitchen – Dine at Gordon Ramsay’s Restaurant
Michelin-star chef Gordon Ramsay brings his best to this fiery restaurant at Caesars Palace, Dubai. It is the sister restaurant of the OG Hell’s Kitchen in Las Vegas, and draws inspiration from Gordon Ramsay’s reality TV show.
The show’s red and blue competing themes are incorporated into the dynamic decor – giving us a theatrical dining experience.
We’d highly recommend Gordon Ramsay’s signature beef Wellington, hearty burgers and grills, and sticky toffee pudding!
