We were here on Christmas Day Stopped for lunch mid city tour by the Marina walk. The Ambience was great. Lovely and helpful staff. Good food in very large portions, hence a bit pricey. However you go away satisfied and full. They packed up uneaten food as takeaway which we ate at the Dolphin show we went to after completing... More

We were very excited to return here on our recent trip to Dubai but was disappointed. The service was good and they even performed their famous dance routines ( check out you tube!) but this trip round the food did not live up to my old special memories....food wasn't great or even particularly tasty. And there are very few veggie... More

This place was great. I went to the one in Dubai Marina and the service was fantastic along with the burgers, fries and shakes. I love the way the staff all stop and say hello as you enter and goodbye as you leave, a interesting and special touch that makes you feel part of it. Food wise, the burgers are... More

My wife is pregnant and cannot eat a full burger, we asked for a kids menu for her (rather than taking a full burger and throwing it) after having accepted to eat in a smelly place. Waitress refused, stating company policy not allowing to serve kids meal to adults. Called the manager who told us the same and when I... More

I always have a soft spot for Johnny Rockets and might drop in for curly fries or a sundae if nothing else. A good way to get an American diner experience although with its name it tends to be more higher priced.

no no no...why do I want a burger that looks like someone dropped it, covered in grease and dripping fat. I just don't get why people say they are tasty, the sources are tasty but the burger meat is foul. Go to the meat Co. if you want a proper burger and frys.

As burger restaurants go, this one produces excellent food. The problem is with the price. A 'fast food' meal here will cost as much as a full three course meal in many more conventional restaurants. I will continue to be an occasional customer, but Maccy D's, the King of Burgers or even the Fat ones offer much better value for... More
