Dubai restaurants to limit diners to eight per table and use dividers as needed

In new guidelines released by Dubai Municipality, it was outlined that restaurants will be limited to eight people per table.

Groups had previously been restricted to five: this number still applies to shisha cafés, the Municipality said. However, new amended coronavirus restrictions aim to help make the dining-out experience easier.

Restaurants also now have the option of using dividers between tables instead of placing them two-meters apart, a requirement which has been in place since March.

The rules also apply to food courts.
