If you love freebies, especially on your big day then you have many options for places to go and enjoy an edible birthday present on the house. We scoured the scene and found a bunch of Dubai restaurants, where you can eat for free on your birthday.

Bring your Emirates ID, to show them you aren’t fibbing about when you were born. Some restaurants also may require a pre-registration or some kind of sign up, while other places will only give you your free meal if you have enough people eating with you. Make sure you plan ahead.
