We were in the souk and ended up here. It was very pleasant sitting outside and watching the boats. The baba ganoush was unexpectedly good. The other plates were also good.

We sat outside on the terrace, it has a good view of the pier where you take the boat. We ordered the mix grill from the menu. The food is average, but pricey. You can have better options at the Souk.

If you are craving good local cultural food, I do not recommend Times of Arabia. The menu was incredibly large which always leaves me thinking that all the food cannot be that great. The Hummus was good, but everything else was average. I just don't think it's worth it.

The food was amazing, the best dishes were the hummus and falafel, they come with pickled vegetables the peppers and pickles are a must with the hummus and pita bread. The taste of the food was so authentic and definitely a place I would dine again.

I've been to Dubai a number of times and each time I visit I make sure to eat here at least once (sometimes more often). The food is great, the service is great and the view (both in the day and night) is great!
