The first award for the Middle East and Africa’s 50 Best ‘One To Watch’ has been awarded to Chef Neha Mishra of Dubai’s Kinoya. It is a prestigious award given to the restaurant with the most potential to break onto the list the following year. 

“We are humbled by the recognition and are delighted to be the winner of the first One To Watch Award at MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants. To receive this award just 11 months after opening is a dream come true,” says Chef Mishra. “We have tried to create a relaxed space where anyone – no matter where they are from or how much they earn – can come and enjoy a good meal. The award is a credit to my team and everyone’s hard work; we are just starting out on our journey, but this award shows us we are on the right path.”

The outstanding Japanese restaurant nestled into The Greens has only been around for a little under a year, but Mishra has been serving guests her famous ramen for years from the comfort of her own home. Her popular supper club, ‘The Story of Food’, made its mark on Dubai’s foodie crowd with its six-course menu which always featured her irresistible ramen as its focal point. Kinoya was initially going to be a ramen shop, however, because of Mishra’s many talents, it evolved into the izakaya-style restaurant that it is today featuring a host of authentic and traditional Japanese dishes like tsukene and tamago sando, as well as an excellent robata selection, and of course, the “Ramen Queen’s” very own signature dish.

William Drew, Director of Content for 50 Best, says: “At Kinoya, Neha Mishra has created a one-of-a-kind space within the bustling city of Dubai. From the moment of walking through the door, Kinoya transports guests to an authentic Japanese izakaya, where the décor and outstanding food come together as one. Mishra’s ramen, as you might expect from someone who has studied the dish so extensively, is nothing short of stunning. We are delighted to name Kinoya as the One To Watch as part of the overall MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants awards program.”
