Ali Al Rais and Rania Saied, Founder of Arabian Tea House, released a statement confirming the news: “I am very excited that Arabian Tea House, the first Emirati restaurant, will be showcased to millions of international visitors at The World’s Greatest Show. I believe that the best way to explore different cultures is through food, and Expo 2020 Dubai offers the perfect opportunity and platform to demonstrate Emirati hospitality.”
