“Amazing views, service questionable...”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We have eaten in several TGI Friday's restaurants over the world, the food was good and generally what you'd expect from TGIs. We hadn't realised that the restaurant looked out over the Dubai Fountains and was a bonus to watch the fountains from the balcony at lunch time! We got some fantastic pictures from here! I desperately wanted to give this restaurant 5 stars due to the amazing views and pictures we have from being here however the service was pretty bad! The service we personally received was ok nothing too bad however during our meal we saw two parties, a total of 5 people, walk out of the restaurant. They were seated but nobody went back to take their orders so they left. Meanwhile the staff were cleaning windows, watching each other clean the windows and generally wandering around aimlessly! It's such a shame that the service lets this place down as the views and location of the restaurant are priceless.

We went for a lunch during our stay in dubai, ok it's more expensive that food court but it's worth. Very tasty, friendly staff and fast service.

“Great view”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Pretty standard fare from TGI as per usual. We arrived around 7ish and got that last non-smoking table outside. The main attraction of the restaurant is the view, so get there earlier.

“Great location, great value, attentive staff”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Ideally situated with a perfect view for the fountain show. The food was good value for money considering the location. Staff were very friendly and food was great quality as you would expect.
