A buddy of mine told me about a little fish shack that sells amazing, fresh seafood I needed to check out just down from Jumeirah Beach Hotel. I went down with expectations of grabbing take-away fish n chips and sitting on the beach, but instead stumbled across a bustling little low-key restaurant with crowds of people from all walk of life.
Being my first time there I was bemused by the lack of menu (there's only 3 things to order anyway!), proper seating (plastic stools) and actual cutlery (you're eating with your fingers!) - but that's what made it so awesome! It's completely opposite to the try-hard, pretentious restaurants that fill Dubai where you can expect crap waiters, long waits for food and a bill that's far more than the dining experience is worth.
The food was absolutely amazing - you MUST order the shrimp with your fish!!! (but only grab a 1/4 kilo if you're a light eater). It's not quite as cheap as Ravi's, but for 120dhs my partner and I were absolutely stuffed and we didn't finish all the food!
Just remember - THIS PLACE IS NO FRILLS!!! I've laughed at a few stupid reviews where people have come here expecting a regular Dubai restaurant experience!
