Vibrancy and aromas of a bustling Asian market

A modern Southeast Asian restaurant with an open kitchen, Li Jiang whets the appetite for all things spicy, authentic and Oriental. Meaning “beautiful river” in Chinese, Li Jiang reflects resort’s location on the Grand Canal. An open kitchen, where diners can watch the chefs create homemade dim sum as well as authentic rice and noodle dishes is the centerpiece of our modern Southeast Asian restaurant. An outdoor terrace tucked away in the olive grove affords spectacular views of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
