the sushi enthusiasts of Dubai celebrate!

Gourmet Gulf officially opens its doors in 2004 and the crowds go wild. Customers across Dubai go crazy for the delectable Japanese street food that YO! has to offer. Due to the insatiable appetite of our awesome customers, we simply had to open two more YO! restaurants in The Dubai Mall and Dubai Marina Mall.

Californian funk meets pizza. what could go wrong?

At Gourmet Gulf, we know a tasty deal when we see one. So naturally, we had to have the California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) franchise… our mouths are watering already. In 2009 and 2010, the delicious aromas of Californian cuisine filled the air as CPK opened its doors in The Dubai Mall, City Center Mirdif and Mall of the Emirates.

growing beyond the Emirates

News spread to our friends in Saudi Arabia about the dynamic dining experience YO! Sushi had to offer, so we did the honorable thing and opened YO! Sushi.
