“Horrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011 via mobile

The place is a waste of time. Tried 3 times and it was horrible all the three times. In fact I ordered vegetarian food and the guy who served chicken 2minutes ago without gloves served food to me. I will not suggest this place.

“Food court food that's cheap and good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2010

All shopping malls in Dubai have a food court. Mall food courts are extremely noisy place and have the usual selection of junk food. However, there is an exeption:

Shamiana serves piping-hot tandoori food, biryani, curry and kebabs. Visitors can create their own combinations from the selection of daily specials and traditional dishes

I tailor-made my own order of a garlic naan, masala prawns and chicken tandoori.

I tried the same combination at both their Dubai Mall and Deira City Centre outlets. Although it is located in a food court, all food is cooked a’la minute (made to order). Shamiana is a good spot for good Indian fare at less than average prices. The main disadvantage of eating in a food court is the paper plates and plastic cutlery!
