TGI Friday's food is average at best and also as it's in the mall you can't have an alcoholic drink, but if you manage to get in on a night that's not too busy and ask for a table outside (or wait if it's not too long) you get a spectacular view of the Dubai Fountains over the balcony that's much better than standing on the railing down the bottom. Definitely worth it if you want a fantastic scene with the Burj in the background also!

This is a very bad experience and I do not recommend to any one to vist this restaurant, the service is horrible and the food is disgusty, it seems that the chef do not know how to cook and there is no salt or peper or any type of spices in the food. guests coming to this restaurant only because of the view, if you want to sit thier, just ask for soft drink as thier cocktails is more horrible than the food.

My group of six arrived a this restaurant with the hope that we could get balcony seats to see the Dubai Fountain show starting at 6:00pm each day. There were no balcony seats available so we took an inside table for six. The bad news was that three members of our party were facing the setting sun and they had to resort to either sunglasses, a cap with a brim or scrunching down into the shadow of the person across from them to avoid looking into the sun.

It took forever for someone to get us and take our initial drink orders. It took even longer for them to come back and take our dinner orders. When I placed my order I was told it was unavailable. The six orders were not delivered at the same time so people had the choice of either eating before everyone was served or letting their dishes get cold. One order was completely forgotten and it took 10 more minutes for that person to be served. The food was of only middling quality and taste and none of the french fry orders was served hot.

The overall result of this experience was complete dissatisfaction. Avoid this place if you want a good meal and reasonable service.

Me and my wife went for dinner at TGI and it was poor, we took our seats wait 20 minutes for our waitress to take our drink orders! We then ordered food and waited for another 40 minutes for the food to arrive which we hd to chase as the waitress didn't put the food through!
When the food arrived it was cold had to be sent back and re cooked.

TGI sort it out!

Great position to watch the Dubai Fountain from. Food and service also good. Try to get a table outside for the best viewing position.
