Since it was a the last friday of Ramadan, we wanted to make it special. I am so glad we had a special iftar at Farzi Cafe, in the heart of Dubai, at CityWalk.A place buzzing with life and joy! Farzi Cafe has a beautiful fusion of traditional Asian flavours with its trademark gastronomy stamp. The most unique and visually pleasing food, excellent service, and delectable fusion of flavours that leave you content and glad to have chosen this venue. We were served an assortment of dates to break our fast along with the most pretty welcome shots names "Amuse Bouche". A flavourful soup with chickpeas crackers, and were served complimentary Vimto as well. Their special menu for Ramadan had left my taste buds tentalizing as the harai bharei kababs were so soft and the first bite gave so many amazing flavours. The tawa lamb chops were a hit! The most succulent, lip-smackingly delicious starter with a burst of flavours. For main course, we had their chicken tikka with mint flavoured chutney pulao which was another great dish by the chef! They have options for vegetarians too! Their Haray Baray Kabab with dehydrated vegetables were soo healthy and yumm. And the paneer tikka lababdaar definitely was the best vegetarian dish I've ever had! Each and everything on the menu was of a good portion enough for 4 adults as its a sharing menu(had leftover as well) and we certainly enjoyed finishing off our memorable iftar on a sweet note by having the charcoal Jalebi with Mascarpone Rabri!! You'll surely be missing out if you leave without tasting this unique twist of a traditional jalebi we've been having since childhood!
Overall an excellent value for money, peaceful and relaxing ambiance, excellent service(even the chef came to greet the guests and take feedback), and the perfectly curated iftar menu. Will surely recommend it for a memorable Ramadan experience with family.

I've never loved City Walk and Dubai more than I did this day when i went here with my husband and children for iftar.❤😍
Due to the covid situation and the precautions we all are taking, we had not taken our children anywhere. But for a special day, our family went to citywalk and it was my best decision. The children could be themselves with social distancing, enjoy the train, and the Ramadan spirit. Since we like traditional Asian food, we decided to have iftar at Farzi Cafe. Really liked the affordable option of sharing menu of 4 course which was enough for my family. It had delicious taste, commendable service, exceptional food experience and proper SOPS followed. It was the BEST quality of food at any iftar I've had. My little one was fascinated by the "real smoke"coming from the plate and were in awe!! Their gastronomic experience will leave your children surprised and delighted! No wastage of taking excess food as well The masjid nearby the cafe added to the comfort as we could go offer our Salah on time after having the starters, and then return back to have the maincourse and dessert without having to miss our Salah. Love this part of citywalk and the cooperation of Farzi Cafe manager Mr Anish who was so accomodating. I had a wonderful time with my family and i will surely visit here again as this open space was loved by my children.

This is a stunning indoor, outdoor mall with a great range of shops, a cinema and restaurants. Some of the outdoor space is also air conditioned, which makes it it possible to enjoy the outdoor space even on hot days. The mall was only relatively recently opened and is very modern.

There is a lot of cool street art adorning the outdoor walls and quirky vehicles including themed old fashioned cars and red double decker buses to transport those requiring it.

The traffic can get busy but it is possible to walk from Dubai Mall metro station.

Plenty of Covid measures are in place, including temperature checks at the entrance points and social distancing.

"City Walk 2" is an open-air shopping and dining destination by the beach that has so many designer cafes, restaurants and shops. This is one of the luxurious places of Dubai so expect a higher check when dining or while shopping at this place. Since weather is extremely hot this is not the time for the outdoors but you can visit this place to check the 3D Art Exhibition that’s going on in the indoor area of the The City Walk 2.

Nearest Parking: Search for ‘’Loccitane café, City Walk’’ in Google Maps to reach the nearest parking so u don’t have to walk in the extreme heat to reach the indoor area of City Walk 2.
This month-long exhibition runs until 31st August,20.

Whenever you think what's next in Dubai?, they come up with another innovative idea. There are outdoor malls all over the world but nothing can compare to atmosphere and feeling you get at City Walk.

Be it tons of wonderful dining options, or reviving live shows going on, or the magical use of lights, or the jaw-dropping photogenic view of Burj Khalifa. There is everything for everyone here.

I visited City Walk multiple times during my stay. Parking is free on weekends and public holidays. Put this place on your bucket list for next Dubai Trip. It will energize you.

Sugar factory review

Sugar Factory at City walk is amazing! The atmosphere is relaxed and tranquil, yet the staff is also really pleasant, the manager also bought us extra water as he noticed we were thirsty. It was clear that making customers happy is their first priority. We are so fortunate to have this place just walking distance from our university. The food is wonderful, and the Iftar menu was more than enough; we adore this restaurant and will return.

We started with Dates & Rose Milk, which was a delicious way to break our fast, then moved on to Chicken Shish Tawook with Fries, an incredible appetizer that felt like the main course, and finally the entrée, which was Arabic spiced grilled chicken with rice & Alfredo Penne Pasta. By the end of the night, we were so full that we had to order takeout. I would strongly advise coming to Sugar Factory for Iftar, especially given the low price.

City Walk offers both an indoor and outdoor mall, with parts of the air outside cooled. It is a short distance from the Dubai Mall metro station and offers great views back to Downtown Dubai.

There is a good selection of retail as well as lots of excellent food and beverage options, including licensed venues and lots with outdoor seating available. There are pop ups throughout the year.

There is also a very good Roxy Cinema and entertainment options for those with kids. Plenty of parking is available.

A lovely mall.
