First Class Dining

First Class Dining

An award-winning dining experience combining the finest local ingredients with exquisite flavours and impeccable service

Emirates has extended its commitment to offering not just the finest dining experience in the skies, but a dining experience worthy of the finest restaurants all around the world.

On the Brisbane-to-Singapore route, for example, the Asian-accented braised beef rib and the fresh, stir-fried lobster in black bean sauce reflect the vivid flavours of the local markets. That's just one of the regionally inspired menus created with care for our First Class passengers by our world-class chefs.

Healthy Meal Options

We are delighted to offer Healthy Meal Options to our First Class menus. Our award-winning chefs have designed these meals with an emphasis on creating dishes that promote good health.

Combining the freshest, best-quality ingredients with a range of imaginative cooking techniques, Emirates Healthy Meal Options dishes are designed to bring out the food’s natural flavours – without adding excessive fats or oils.

Healthy Meal Option dishes are now available on most long-haul Emirates flights around the world.
