    Dubai Restaurants

    Another of the restaurants by Ski Dubai in Mall of the Emirates, Al Hallab serves excellent Lebanese/Arabic dishes.

  • Scoozi

    4 out of 5 stars

    Dubai Restaurants

    I like the real thing when it comes to pizza and pasta. Pizza made the Italian way with the right wheat used for the pastry, thin crust, traditional toppings. The same goes for pasta, in particular the tomatoes, so critical in Italian cuisine, have to be the correct variety to get the authentic Italian flavour. That's what you get at Scoozi and...

  • India Palace

    4 out of 5 stars

    Dubai Restaurants

    A stylish restaurant at The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residence in Dubai Marina offering authentic Indian dishes, cooked and served by Indians.

  • Kan Zaman

    Dubai Restaurants

    A huge restaurant with seating for 1,000 people, in the restored historic area of Shindagah in Bur Dubai. Right on the creek, it's best at night, when it fills up around 9.30. The dinner-tour dhows, outlined in lights, go right past. Great food, service, atmosphere. A big menu of international and Middle Eastern dishes but it's best to stick with...

  • Apple Cafe & Restaurant

    Dubai Restaurants

    Right in the heart of Dubai, overlooking the Creek in Deira in one of the Twin Towers. A very big Iranian restaurant with dining inside or outside on the terrace.

  • Khan Murjan

    Dubai Restaurants

    This large bustling restaurant is part of the new souk at Wafi Mall in Bur Dubai. Currently, July 2008, it's only part opened, that being the open roof area where smoking, including shisha, is permitted. An additional enclosed non-smoking are is due to open soon. It's a great atmosphere, and given that it's in a brand new mall it's as close to an...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Dubai Restaurants

    This restaurant is around the corner from the Flora Grand and seems to be popular with locals. They serve authentic Labanese food which is delicious but we wished someone had warned us about the huge servings .We could have shared a dish and had some leftover. We had chicken skewers. It came with homemade bread , and pita and a huge bowls of fresh...

  • El Chico

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Dubai Restaurants

    An extensive menu, good decor, excellent service and atmosphere. The food has improved enormously since we first ate here so I've updated this Tip. It's not a true Mexican restaurant, it's an American version of one, but I can recommend it. El Caballero which is a combination of a beef burrito topped with chili con queso, a chicken enchilada with...

  • Al Dhiyafa

    Dubai Restaurants

    This used to be our favourite dinner buffet, with the widest choice of dishes from a variety of cuisines, all top-quality. A huge range of starters, main courses and desserts plus just about every sauce you can think of and a good bread table. But they recently (2015) changed the operator of the hotel, completely refurbished it into a typical...

  • La Dolce Vita

    Dubai Restaurants

    You can always taste the difference when pasta is home made and La Dolce Vita has it. The pizzas have the genuine Italian flavour too, and that's not always the case with pizza. It's in Dubai Marina's Jumeirah Beach Residence district, on The Walk, and is hugely popular. Sit outside if you can find a table, unfortunately the inside decor is not...

  • Mazina

    Dubai Restaurants

    Like so many restaurants in modern hotels the interior design is a strange mish-mash of designs that clash with each other. But it's big, airy, with plenty of space between tables and a number of cooking stations. We've only been at the weekends for buffet lunch and it's excellent. The price (AED220/$60) includes mineral water, soft drinks,...

  • Reem Al Bawadi

    Dubai Restaurants

    Opened in April 2012 having taken over what I've always thought this was the best location in Dubai Marina, a free-standing building literally right on the waterfront. A fabulous location. They've spent a huge amount on the fitout, transforming both inside and out. Inside is spread over three floors and there are two outside dining areas where...

  • IKEA

    Dubai Restaurants

    As a mother of a young child, I try to keep my daughter away from fast food as much as possible, so like Ikea as a place to go when out shopping in Dubai. The food is plain but healthy. As an adult I recommend the chicken escalope, the fried hammour and grilled salmon. Although you have to serve yourself and clear your own table, this helps to...

  • Blue Elephant

    Dubai Restaurants

    Although it's in the lobby of a hotel the clever design makes it seem as though you're in an outdoor Thai village restaurant. Decor, staff, sights, sounds & smells all give that impression. The ingredients used in the dishes are top quality, presentation is excellent, service is what you would expect of an award-winning restaurant. It's been voted...

  • AOC Brasserie - Sofitel

    Dubai Restaurants

    A typical hotel all-day dining restaurant, although the hotel calls it a 'French Brasserie'.

  • Spice Island - Crowne Plaza

    5 out of 5 stars

    Dubai Restaurants

    For the price you pay in this restaurant (225dhs, around £35) which includes all food and beverages (wine, beer, spirits etc) this is one of my favourite restaurants in Dubai. It works on a buffet (all you can eat basis) and includes seperate "stalls" with food from different countries at each. There is Italian, Mongolian, Indian, Mexican, Chinese...

  • Carluccio's

    Dubai Restaurants

    Shopping malls are not my favourite places for restaurants, but Carluccios at Dubai Marina Mall is a bit different because in the outside area on the marina promenade you don't feel as though you're in a mall. The food I'm afraid is a disappointment though. As you would expect is authentically Italian but they use Carluccio's packet pasta rather...

  • Maria Bonita

    Dubai Restaurants

    This is one of Dubai's longest established Mexican restaurants, possibly even the longest. I'm disappointed in all the Mexican restaurants in the city, most are not Mexican but really American Tex-Mex fast food. Maria Bonita used to be better but it seems to have lost some of its quality recently. It still gets very full though, so obviously...

  • Royal Orchid

  • Al Muntaha

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Dubai Restaurants

    Simply the finest seafood in the world. That´s how the restaurant Al Muntaha calls itself. Is it true? Well, the only first class restaurant I have eaten at is the danish restaurant Noma in Copenhagen and that was a supreme experience, so that is my benchmark! Anyway, to access the Burj Al Arab, you must have a reservation for one of the...

  • Golden Fork

    Dubai Restaurants

    We found the Golden Fork quite by accident. As we were shopping in the Karama district my son declared he was starving so we dropped into the first Restaurant we saw as we could not stand the whining any longer. We were pleasantly surprised to find a nice place that catered to many tastes. You could choose from authentic asian influenced meals,...

    Dubai Restaurants

    I was looking for authenic and reasonable price food in the food court of the largest mall in Dubai. I found one of the freshest wholesome goodness in every bite. They have everything from fresh salads, sandwiches and wraps, pizza. Everything is baked right there and the taste is superb HALLOUMI and beef bacon in a specially wrap. 30 AED

  • Shanghai Chic

    Dubai Restaurants

    A good quality Chinese restaurant in Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate hotel, offering traditional Cantonese and Shanghai dishes. The quality of the food can't be faulted and the restaurant design is quality too. Service is a bit hit and miss and the restaurant is what so many restaurants think is intimate lighting but in reality is so dark it's hard to...

  • Japengo

    Dubai Restaurants

    Japengo is a small but growing chain of cafes/restaurants all around the city. The wide-ranging menu includes Japanese, Italian, Arabic dishes, steaks, seafood and much more.

  • On The Border

    Dubai Restaurants

    The restaurant is in the very popular The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence. If you're looking for real Mexican food you won't find it here, this is another American fast food joint masquerading as a Mexican restaurant. Having said that, it's as good as any I've found in town for so-called Tex-Mex food. Chilli is noticeable by its abscence in the...

  • Arz Lebanon

    Dubai Restaurants

    The location is as good as it gets in New Dubai, in Dubai Marina right on the waterfront overlooking Dubai Marina Yacht Club. The food is very good, so is the service, and there are international options on the menu in addition to the usual Arabic items. We always order several dishes, mezza in Arabic (similar to the Spanish tapas idea). The...

  • Luciano's

    Dubai Restaurants

    In a beautiful location next to the garden pool at Habtoor Grand hotel in Dubai Marina. I've eaten Italian food around the world - including Italy - and the food at Luciano's is as good as it gets, in my opinion. The osso bucco is the best I've ever eaten. I heard an Italian diner at the next table tell the waiter the pizza was the best he'd ever...

  • Salsa

    Dubai Restaurants

    The best Mexican we've found so far. On the waterfront overlooking the million dollar yachts moored in the marina, stunning towers all around. There's a large outdoor area and a smaller indoor dining area. Shisha is available outside. The food is not really true Mexican, like all the franchises in Dubai it's the American version of Mexican food -...

  • Sicilia

    Dubai Restaurants

    This has become one of our favourite Italian resaturants. Although it's in a five-star hotel it's a relaxed, casual restaurant claiming to serve simple home-style cooking. It's obviously a bit more than that but it's certainly not over-the-top, pretentious food that too many hotels serve up. The chef is Italian and the large number of Italian...

  • Dome

    Dubai Restaurants

    Dome started as a specialist coffee supplier in Australia, and that's reflected in the excellent coffee they serve. They're now spreading internationally and have expanded into an excellent restaurant chain. All branches have identical menus. We've used several of their restaurants. Service is top class, the atmosphere is informal & relaxing. the...
