In the nomination phase, which runs from August 5-September 30, we are calling consumers to nominate their favourites in each category online. After September 30, the top ten nominees in each category (with the highest votes) will be listed on this site. Between October 15 and November 27, consumers will then get to vote again for the winner, from that list.

The winners will be revealed at our gala awards event in January 2015.

* Winners for Restaurant of the Year (Dubai & Abu Dhabi), Best New Restaurant (Dubai & Abu Dhabi), Chef of the Year, and Most Sustainable Restaurant will be chosen by an independent judging panel.
