“An experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Let me start by saying this was a unique experience to eat here. No menu, simply your waitress with a shopping basket who takes you to the counter to select what your meal. The 1st counter, choose you fish or seafood, select the way you want it cooked and if you want a sauce with it e.g. garlic/Thai etc. 2nd counter vegetable selection, and how you'd like them cooked again. You can also choose rice or noodles to accompany your meal. It was a delicious meal.

ONE MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT. THE DISGUSTING MAN WHO SAW FIT TO SMOKE AT THE FISH COUNTER THEN DISPOSE OF HIS CIGARETTE ON THE FLOOR FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO PICK UP. When we and the table next to us spoke up about this to the waitresses they clearly felt uncomfortable too confront the man and nothing was done by the manager either. Poor show on this front. Such a shame...

“A unique experience but well worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I took my wife there for her birthday and we both enjoyed it. There is no menu and the helpers walk you around as you pick your seafood to be cooked. We had a great meal and there are some unique seafood options. Staff is very nice and they suprised my wife with a nice cake.

CONS - Drinks are a little pricey and the cost of the meals are a little tricky to gauge how much you are actually spending. But I would return with others to show this place off.

A very different type of restaurant, where you select all you ingredients and cooking preference's before eating. A must for all seafood lovers

“Still good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

It is out of date & perhaps overpriced but where else can you get relatively fresh fish & alcohol at the same time, in AD.
Check that the fish is really fresh; look at the gills, (should be reddish), get it steamed & have the vegetables in garlic & olive oil. Don't have the greasy noodles or desserts. Al Ain water. Always have the local fish; gulf sole, Bouri, Bream. Not Hamour (endangered). For special occaisns have the Hamman (excellent).
No need for a starter. See, not so expensive.
Sit away from the AC or outside (weather permitting, of course).
The cheap wines are awfull, don't bother. Gin & Tonic is safer.
