Popped in after wandering round the old quarter. Opted for the camel curry with all the trimmings. Was very nice and not at all how I expected it to be - it was tended and very moist. Nice refreshing side salad. In the price. Others opted to sit in the air conditioned room at the back, we sat in the... More

Local house looks like an old house and courtyard converted into a restaurant. The ambiance is ok. They have open seating in the courtyard, and various rooms with tables, couches and a variety of seating arrangements. The place is decorated with different types of furniture, art, and artefacts, some interesting, some garish and gaudy. The food is ok. I went... More

I went to the Local House with some friends. The atmosphere in the restaurant is really good,it was almost empty. We saw the majlis inside the restaurant and they are good if you want to go for something more typical. We tried the special camel burguer and nobody told us it was spicy, it was not a good surprise. The... More

The food was DELICOUS. I didn't order the burger I ordered the meat cooked in spices. It was so good... More

Had a camel burger and a lemon and mint drink. The service was very good and the food was delicious. The setting in the old souk is very atmospheric especially at night when its all lit up. They serve the burgers and wedges in pear shaped wooden bowls. I had the special with fired egg and mushrooms and it was... More

The food was good, but the service was really slow. The waiter did not check on us for any follow ups. It was an experience. It was the first time for my husband to try camel burger. He said it was really good and had a very tender taste to it. I got the fish and chips, not your average... More

There is something quite charming about this place. Definitely a different feel from most of the other touristy restaurants you'll find in Dubai. I don't know who actually owns this place but it does have a very "mom and pop" feel to it. I had the camel burger and date milk shake. The burger was good, not great. But eating... More
