Tipping in Dubai

While most restaurants will note at the bottom of the menu that taxes and service charge have already been included in the bill, it's still common for diners in Dubai to tip the service staff. A figure between 10% and 15% is customary, but this is dependent on the quality of service. Often rounding up to the nearest figure in your bill could suffice.
