Great food and superb service but a bit pricey. The restaurant is located at one of the busiest mall and overlooking the Dubai fountain. The decoration and music is also chic and very modern.

Karma Kafe is a great choice for a nice, relaxed evening with friends. Great bar with amazing cocktails on the menu - I ordered a simple Mojito, but it was one of the best Mojitos I have had so far! We had the chilli edamame and calamari in 12 spices to start with - both were absolutely delicious. The main... More

Mouthwatering sushi with cocktails, perfect mood music and lighting and it makes for... More

They offer delicious food, snacks and an extensive drinks menu with special ingredients. From the terrace there is the view of Burj Khalifa and the dancing fountain. Plush red decor and every so often a Dj blasting... More
