Do not go to this restaurant. It is the worst place I have eaten in Dubai and I have lived here a few years. The food is edible but that is the best I can say for it. It is in the fine dining section of the Entertainer but even with that it is still not good value as it... More

When we walked in to the Times of Arabia I fell in love with the decor, it reminded me of some of the restaurants I’d eaten at in Istanbul. The colors were very warm and the décor was very rich and vibrant; we got to sit at a booth that was set up with cushioned benches and a low table... More

Our hotel concierge had made dinner reservations and I actually stood right beside him as he was speaking to the restaurant staff. However when we got there, the waitress/hostess told us that we had reservations for two adults with two children and had to sit inside. We were, as she could see with her own eyes actually four adults with... More

The restaurant is having the most delicious food in town in my opinion but you should stick to appetisers. Main courses are expensive and not outstanding. Try the traditional arabic appetisers(Muhammara, Fattoush, grilled chicken wings, Sujuk..) and you will not be disappointed, it is the best available in town. Their sitting area is very lovely also. In my opinion 2-3... More

It was an unique experience a "typical" souk setting for shopping in a city well known for it modern gigantic Dubai mall, the architecture design is so Arabian yet with a touch of elegance and all modern trimmings to go with it, we sat outside with the Burj Arab 7 star hotel in the background, just beautiful....there was also acoustic...

I was woefully disappointed with my Times experience. How the restaurant justifies the price of its bland hummus, dry bread, foot-tasting lamb, and slow service is beyond me. I can only imagine that they believe that attractive girls acting as greeters and a picturesque location will convince people their meal was worth the extortionate price they paid for it. I've...

Located at Madinat Jumeirah, overlooking the canal, I would strongly recommend to book a table outside, not only for the view but with the air conditioning it can be really cold inside, unless you are visiting during summer, where it is extremely warm outside even at night. Very tasty food, make sure you try 3-4 mezze, the lamb chops were... More

Lovely location, great local feel, great food and very attentive staff. Our table was outside which was good but it was a little cramped.
