The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi's bars and restaurants include Fish Dubai,  Bussola, Hunters Room & Grill, El Sur and Asia de Cuba, along with the Bubbalicious brunch. The range of food and drink created at those outlets can all be produced by Westin Catering – along with a host of other cuisines from around the world and special activations such as Arabic BBQs and beach parties.

Rawal said in a statement: "We have been involved in events in Dubai for many years but by launching a dedicated catering operation we can really bring to life any occasion more than ever before.

"It was brilliant to recently run the food and drink operation at the Dubai Desert Classic golf and it is events like that where we are confident of being the market leader."

Westin Catering is set to announce a series of partnerships in the coming months.
