Lovely experience

Thyme is a great quality price rate, we had a tasty buffet in a very cosy atmosphere. Live band playing very appropriate tunes, quality food and reasonably priced drinks. The service was attentive and not too invasive. Definitely a must come back!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience eating at Thyme during our stay in Dubai. The food was superbly prepared and of the highest quality. The service was phenomenal! Mohammed Fazil was especially attentive and kind! We recommend this restaurant without reservation, and certainly plan to dine there again.

Highly recommended. Although the interior is not world class, the food is very good, and all the staff-members were very friendly and professional. Ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here, as well as watching Premier League in the evening. Would like to praise Aslam for his friendly service and professional attitude, especially when arranging gluten free bread for me at breakfast.

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
