Nothing amazing except Location!!! Yes, the food is satisfactory and service too. However, there is nothing amazing or out of the box, that gives the person a feeling of WOW!

We were here just last weekend and luckily finished before the rain started (Rain in Dubai!? what?!). We had a great night and it's mainly because of the guys working on serving the tables. They were able to recommend most of our meal, and the taste was excellent. We also enjoyed a nice wine with it based on their recommendation.... More

We ate here as it was on the doorstep of the hotel we were staying in Al Murooj Rotana. We sat down outside which was a perfect temperature. We didn't choose a starter, just had poppadoms. So glad we did as the main courses were filling. I sampled each of the four friends we were with dishes, and loved them... More

The Tandoor meats and breads are absolutely delicious. Besides the typical northern Indian dishes, there were some other interesting dishes as well. As we dined out regularly at Indian restaurants we were pleased with all dishes we ordered. The lady, Snehal, who served us made our dinner enjoyable. In fact from our observations, she is pivotal for the restaurant as... More

I had read some good reviews of this restaurant and so we planned to go there one Friday evening. On arrival the restaurant, which is quite big and cavernous, was empty, although I think there were some people on the terrace, although we were the only reservation in the reservation book. The waiter brought us the wine list and advised... More

The journey to the Zaika is interesting. if you're staying on the coast side of the city (we were almost opposite it) then it seems to be about a 5 mile taxi ride to cross Sheik Zayed Road - the main highway! Fortunately taxis are cheap. The Zaika is in the Murooj Rotana Hotel near the Burj Khalifa. Once there... More

This is a solid performer that is located in the Murooj Rotana hotel. You have to walk downstairs (several flights of a round staircase) to arrive at the restaurant. They will try to seat you against the central collonade unless you tell them no. The fare is what you would expect of this type of restaurant. The rogan josh was... More
