“Veggie burger”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

I've visited several Hard Rock's all over the world and I find the Dubai one to live up to its name. The food, service, atmosphere and music are the same as in all the others HRC's.

Excellent service; filling food; fun atmosphere! Staff brilliant with our kids too. Great entertainment and loud music.
Not the place to go if you're looking for a peaceful meal out!

“Not up to par”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I have been to a number of HRCs around the world and this one, unfortunately, doesn't match up to previous ones I've visited.
Yes it's big and clean and the staff try hard, but the food was average to poor and the "band" they had there were worse. There was a lot of sticking people's faces in plates of cream to celebrate their birthdays and a number of times the staff were taken away from serving to wave their arms about on the stage to, well, it wasn't rock music... I didn't experience good food or service or any kind of atmoshpere whatsoever - maybe it was because it was a weekday? It was after Ramadam so it can't have been that. Whatever the reason, I have my HRC souvenirs to add to my collection but next time I'm in Dubai I'll be eating elsewhere.

“Another great HRC”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

I have been to Hard Rock Cafes from California to Japan, and Dubai didn't disappoint in terms of food, service and atmosphere. We had a great time and enjoyed browsing the merchandise and taking in the surroundings. Super pins too!!

“Anyone going anytime soon want to help me out?”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I visited the old HRC in Dubai, and purchased a 'Hard Rock Cafe - Dubai - Pilsner Pint Glass' and a couple of pins. Unfortunately, the glass smashed yesterday. I've looked around online but I've been unable to find a replacement.

If anyone plans to visit the restaurant anytime soon, would anyone be kind enough to pick up a replacement glass for me and I'll happily pay for the glass and the the cost of postage and packaging.

Thanks in advance.
