“For what you pay, Dubai's best experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Much of what has been said and written about this place is absolutely right: It's a gloves off, down and dirty culinary experience, where you queue for potentially up to an hour, choose your fish by pointing and saying 'that one', specifying the spice, deciding if you want prawns, and then waiting for the result out on plastic chairs on the sand. The end result? Great.

“Mouth watering experience !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Looks can be deceptive. When a good friend took me to this sea food restaurant in Jummera dubai, my first reaction was to pass and find some other place. On my friends strong advice I decided to give it a try. I was told it was a 40 year old restaurant, the only seating arrangement was in the open, the climate was very good. We sat on the plastic chairs and plastic table. Fish and prawns with porata and fish curry was the only menu.
I noticed clients coming in the best of cars and waiting in the long queue to give their order. Amongst them were Asians, Americans, Euaropeans, Chinese and Arabs.
When the food arrived and I tried it, it was mind boggling. The prawns were out of this world and the fish curry was the best I tasted in a long time. The fish was also out standing. If you are in Dubai and love fish and prawns, you must give this place a try.
