I came here for the camel burger. Considering the price paid, it was nothing worth shouting about; let's just say it was as dry as the Arabian desert. The fries that were served together was lukewarm at best, while service was slow with houseflies aplenty....More

Nice restaurant, with a local feeling right in the Al Fahidi historical neighbourhood. Good food, great grilled fish. They also have camel products (camel burger, camel kofta (wich are meatballs in a sauce, not the long shaped grilled kofta) and camel milkshakes).

We just walked around the area and got in to try a camel burger as it was lunchtime - it was a bit pricey but great, service was fast and the staff was really nice and helpful. Recommended!

While the place gives the local emarati taste of place and food, they need more staff to serve the restaurant. I do that the current staff who are apparently doing extra effort to try to cope up. On the food, it is correctly done. Not...More

Good food overall, the place is ok and the staff is nice. Only 2 people serving so the service wasn’t amazing. Camel burger is a must! Calamari were fried in old oil, so not great.

Excellent food. Cute restaurant. Filled up while we were there...had to compete with restaurant next door that has large queues. Delicious home-made iced tea and camel burger and bread made in-house. Should be a lot busier!!

Local House is located at the beginning of Al Fahidi St just past the Al Fahidi roundabout. It's not far from the Dubai Museum, the Bur Dubai Souk and the water taxis that cross the Creek to Deira. So it's very convenient for lunch or...More
