The ambience and decor is allright. Nothing wrong with the service but the food is not that impressing, Had a brunch where the rösti, sausage and halal bacon was really poor. The coffee was decent.

We went to the Al Ittihad Mall restaurant. The title of my review says it all really. Interesting but not true to history! It was fascinating to sit in this restaurant it rather looked like a lady's bedroom! Still the staff were pleasant enough. They allowed us take photographs of the place, More than I can say for the security... More

Nice food served in a courtyard surrounded by a single storey building in the style of a Victorian railway station. Most customers seem to be there for a Shisha pipe.

Food taste differs from the restaurant (Jumeirah vs Ranches vs Downtown) you visit, some restaurants have very limited menu leading to the disappointment. Atmosphere, decor and service are great, outdoor seating is available with chillers. Food is very good. Great place to sit and relax.
