“The essence of Weslodge is its authenticity and commitment to food and service. Our distinctive approach to every layer of the guest experience is something we are excited to share with the Dubai market,” said Icon Legacy Hospitality CEO Hanif Harji.

Diners are encouraged to share everything on the menu with dishes such as ahi tuna ceviche, smoky beef tartare and piri piri glazed whole chicken.

The 4,500 sq ft outlet offers 360 degree views of Dubai and seats 140 diners.
