Food & Beverage Concepts
That Create Community


Since its beginning in Dubai in 2014, Al Braik Hospitality has grown into a well-known brand in both home-grown and franchised food & beverage concepts in the GCC. Al Braik Hospitality’s ethos exists in each of the group’s five exceptional brands; Wakame, Gyuto, Edible Arrangements, BIDAYA and Kawai. Each brand is unique but operated with the same commitment to creating community through hospitality, nurturing talent through hands-on leadership, and innovative dining experiences that increase profitability.

Al Braik Hospitality is a family of over 80 dedicated and passionate team members. Continuous investment is made in training at all levels, and to ensure working environments are healthy and empowering.

Joint venture and franchise opportunities are a key element of our future growth, allowing brand expansion and increased opportunities for investors to benefit from the Al Braik Hospitality framework.


Modern Asian Fine Dining

Discover the harmony of tradition and innovation in our award-winning modern-Asian restaurant in Downtown Dubai. From the theatre of open-kitchen preparation, Wakame is an exceptional setting for celebrations, corporate lunches, and private dining. The menu spans the Far East with innovative flavours and presentation that enhances the classics. Bao or bento, nigiri, maki or hibachi, Wakame’s dishes are crafted around the best local and freshly imported premium ingredients.

Innovative Japanese Dining

Our first Gyuto in Bahrain presents diners with an adventurous selection of Japanese dishes. There’s no shortage of culinary exploration on offer at Gyuto with everything from lobster tacos with a yuzu guac’ to a karubi beef hotpot on offer. Stylish and precise presentation and preparation combined with sought-out ingredients add to the dining experience. Gyuto’s sleek setting makes it perfect for special occasions with a laid-back edge.

Fruit Bouquets & Gifts

The global Edible Arrangements brand famous for its fruity bouquets is blossoming right here in the UAE. As the master franchisee, we are passionate about helping people celebrate life’s most special moments. Our Fruit Expert’s freshly make a selection of uniquely delicious gifts including platters, fruit bouquets, chocolate dipped fruit, fresh fruit beverages, and a range of gifts designed for every occasion.

Asian-Inspired Street Food

Kawai presents a fresh new take on Asian street-food where the fight for flavour is experienced in every bite. Cross-culinary twists take South American spices, BBQ flavours, and bold Mexican heat and infuse them into a selection of street-food favourites. In the kitchen, sharp blades make quick work of sushi, skilled hands layer sandos, and spice-masters make sure the bao and burgers are fully loaded. Every ingredient is treated with respect to create food that demands attention and satisfies cravings. As both a franchise opportunity and a pop-up experience Kawai’s fight for flavour is just beginning.

Cafe & Health Bar

Bidaya is inspired by the people of Arabia and the ways of the past. We are dedicated to bringing fresh, natural healthy and locally inspired meals to the community – making Bidaya the source of good food in your neighborhood.

Bidaya is the place you go to for healthy eating. Goodness also has other implications - we provide goodness to the community by using locally sourced products and materials.

Smoothies and protein shakes aid your wellness journey, fruit juices are raw and freshly squeezed for maximum nutrition, and there’s a varied barista coffee selection. Beyond the beverages, the food menu is rich in flavour and health-boosting ingredients. BIDAYA’s menu has been created with health and wellness at its core, and you’ll find our first BIDAYA at the Gravity Calisthenics Gym.
