About Al Jumeirah
About the restaurant
Wilmslow has long been a central part of Manchester’s dining culture. In fact, there are few places better positioned in the city to accommodate the bold flavours and ambition of Al Jumeriah than Wilmslow Road. Blending the flavours of Moroccan explorer Ibn Battuta’s journey across the Middle East, Southern, Central and Southeastern Asia and China, the team seek to serve truly international flavours to diners with a sense of adventure. Long
In his travels across the majority of the Islamic world in the early 14th century, Ibn Battuta’s grand tour is a grounding influence at Wilmslow’s Al Jumeirah restaurant. Serving subtle blends from the Horn of Africa, Asia and the Middle East in Manchester, this is fusion food at its best. Wilmslow has long been the home of great ethnic food and this latest addition to the Wilmslow Road scene is a welcome take on the culinary mix that the area does best.
There’s no place quite like Wilmslow Road’s Al Jumeirah. Sure, Wilmslow has a host of great places to grab curry or a kebab, but finding somewhere that is focused on the subtle flavours that unite the cuisine from this part of the Islamic world is a more tricky ask. Here you’ll find delicate chutneys, simple salads and moreish skewered meats. Finding great ethnic food in Manchester has never been difficult, but finding somewhere that is attentive to the nuances of flavour between regions is less straightforward. In Al Jumeirah, Wilmslow has added a sophisticated feather to its bow.
