We stopped at Wafi Gourmet whilst at the Burj Khalifa. We wanted to sit and have lunch whilst (hopefully) watching the Dubai fountains which are right out front. We sat down at 11.50am, ordered drinks and asked the waiter what time the fountains started. He told us 12:30 so we got the menu and with his help, we ordered lunch.
We told him we wanted something with salad and chicken kebab and wraps. We ended up with too much food; a big starter and an even bigger main. The quality of the food was fantastic though.
Well 12:30 came & went and no fountain show, so we asked another waiter and he told us 1pm. So we ordered more drinks and waited. 1pm came, no fountains. At 1:20 we asked for the bill and left, on the way out we asked what appeared to be the manager what time the fountains start and we were told 4pm. We were not happy that we were told 3 different times for the fountains to start, you would think they would have an idea of this as they are right near them.
One downside we found to sitting outside was all the smoking. Lots of people puffing away. However, we heard a waiter ask a couple who were looking for a seat whether they wanted smoking or no smoking. We were not asked that and were plonked in smoking!!!
In conclusion, the food was fabulous, the service needs improving and the fountains don't start until 12:30, no 1pm, no 4pm! Oh whatever - we missed them anyway . . . . .
