“Good food, but what happened to the service???”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We ate here again during a recent vacation after a number of very good dining experiences in this restaurant. This times was very different - food was very well presented and very good quality, but then you'd expect that given the prices!

As for service, this is where it all went wrong, unfriendly staff and in no way attentive, while at the table the staff very ok but trying to get their attention was a real challenge. One round of drinks, starters and main course service - that was all we saw of them, no check back, no " how's your meal?" - nothing, a real disappointment!

If you are seated inside (to escape the raging heat) be warned - you will feel like you do not exist, all staff attention is on the outdoor diners - why I cannot answer! They could learn a lot from the other great grill restaurants that are very close by...

“Great meal, try this restaurant.”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Waited at the bar, good service. Meal very nice had the calamari, rib eye (australian) and the layer cake. Had a good value bottle of Shiraz (dead arm). All very good, great service and food was excellent. Made me sign a form to take some meat away for my dogs which I never understand why they do that. I would go back for sure.

“What a great dinner actually 2”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Hunters Room and Grill has the best steaks available in Dubai - matches and beats any other steak house in the world. Staff are very attentive and happy to engage in conversation. Air con very cold:-) Don't miss the Bubbalicious Brunch!

“Fine Dinner in a stylish place”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Its a stylish venue and we had a fine Dinner.

Firstly the menu choice is quite varied - if you're worried as a vegetarian/pescatarian you'll have a poor choice - don't be.

That said I had a wonderful steak which could have been cut with a fork - and some powerful red with it.

I did like the unusual choice of salts offered and the choice of steak knives was a touch !
