Restaurants walking distance of Sheik Zayed Mosque

Does anyone know of restaurants (nothing fancy not fast food but not 5 star either) within ten minutes walk of the mosque? Also is it easy to hail a taxi in this area in the evening? (around 8 or 9 PM)?

If you can cross the bridge quickly than maybe you could make it to the Shangri La in 10 minutes. A taxi is a much better idea.

OK thanks Adam. Are there a lot of taxis around the mosque in the evening?

Absolutely not correct information from Adam M. You cannot walk to the Shangri-La unless you really think it is feasilble to take a long walk of several KM on the hard shoulder of a motorway (freeway). You have to get a bus or taxi. There is a taxi rank at the grand mosque and taxis are cheap. I went to the grand mosque on Sunday and around 5-6pm there were at least 10 vacant taxis waiting.

Some of the nearest mid-range restaurants would be at the Souq at Qaryat Al Beri. It is next to the Shangri-La (5 star hotel). Alternatively head to one of the malls - Mushrif is probably the closest and there are good dining options there (not just fast food). My favourites there are a Thai restaurant called Lemongrass and and Indian called India Palace, but there are others.
