Decent food - nothing too fancy

I visited this restaurant last year. Since then it has been refurbished. Food was just as good as it was then. During the week it isn't too busy but Thursday and Fridays it gets quite busy. It's not too fancy but service is quite quick and that's useful for us as we have an impatient 3 year old... read more

Very busy restaurant near the fountains. Food could be better. I suspect that it basically goes for attracting tourists with reasonable priced but fairly basic food.

This being our 4th? trip to a mall here in the past few days (life in the UAE revolving around the mall), we wanted something lighter for lunch rather than rice and breads. We ate outside which was nice on such a beautiful day. Food selection? Much like the US. We typically don't dine at US chains when abroad, but... More

My friends and I decided to spend lovely evening in this restaurant. First sitting area we choose was filled with bad smell coming from kitchen. Another area which we could fill up (9 of us) was right next to the door. Door was never been closed, too windy and too messy as a staff always walking up and down. Food... More

We had a late lunch at CPK, the service was very good and the waiters were very friendly. Their pizza variety was different and interesting, everyone at our table were full of compliments. The location of this CPK was right on the square leading to the fountains and the perfect view of the Burj Khalifa.

We ate at California pizza kitchen, dubai mall as a group of 4 and a toddler. We had pizzas, pasta and salads and all were fantastic. The BBQ chicken pizzas were one of the nicest I've had. Service was good, very attentive. The outside location is really nice, relaxing and not crazy busy like some restaurants by the fountains. As... More

We dined here last evening roughly 5pm-6pm, entering from inside the Mall. We were asked whether we wanted to sit inside or outside and just picked inside, not realising how nice the seating was outdoors. We had to attract the staff to take our order, but the drinks were delivered to the table quickly. We ordered the 'Jamaican Jerk' pizza... More

Best only in evenings post 6 pm Not very near the dubai fountain. But can see it partially and reasonably well. Actually closer to Address hotel. Decent seating for al fresco dining Service is decent Not very expensive and good for budget food especially considering the location. You will be dining near the tallest building in the world and Decent... More
