We went in here because we wanted to try camel meat. Little did we know there would be so many options! Camel shake, camel burger, camel kebab, camel curry, even camel Wellington! We ate at a cute table in the nice garden. A nice respite from the heat of walking around Dubai.

Order a camel burger and a camel shake! There are many different types of seating, and the staff is pretty friendly. The service is a bit slow, but the inside of the restaurant has a small garden to gaze at while you wait.

Unfortunately I was attracted by the advertising of the camel burger and being sooo curious, we decided to have lunch here. The ambient is rather typical, but the experience itself is really poor. Bathroom rather dirty. Service at a rather low level, not too attentive. The camel meat was pretty good, the rest not that much. The bill was ok.... More

Like everyone else, we took the chance to try camel meat. The burger was OK, but avoid the camel kebab. Those tiny little pieces of meat they served us stuck like gum in the mouth. As for my favorite Fatush salad, it was a disaster. Overall, the place was quite dirty and full of flies. I don't regret the exlerience... More

This place is best avoided. The food is average at best and the wait is long. The ambience is okay and the only reason one would go here is if they were walking around Bastakiya. Definitely avoid this place for a meal.

If you want to try different try Camel Burger in this small local restaurant. One Camel Burger served with fries was 45 AED on Jannuary 2016. It was different experience.

We went there as the Arabian Tea House next door was full and it looked OK. We were wrong. The atmosphere was tacky, music poor quality, the food was greasy, undercooked, service was slow and when we complained, the waitress just smiled.

Very poor meal - Camel kebab was mainly gristle and inedible in places (couldn't chew down enough to swallow!), chips tasted like microwave and hummus seemed watered down. Just a gimmicky tourist trap although prices not crazy in context of region.

Not a remarkable place, especially when compared with other restaurants in Al Fahidi Neighborhood, but it is worth a visit to try its camel burger.
