“dont bother”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Another disappointing Jumeirah experience. Went for lunch as it was a Jumeirah new hotel in Dubai. The menu for lunch wasn't very good as very minimal. Staff were slow, food even slower and when it arrived I ordered a chicken burger and expected a chicken fillet of some sort but got a MINCED CHICKEN burger that was had come from a frozen packet , covered in a melted cheap cheese slice with barely warm chips and 'bought in' onion rings. Not what you expect from a 5 star hotel. One of the worst meals I have ever had. My friend had a chicken ceasar salad that had processed sliced chicken and my husband had a pizza after he couldn't eat the chicken burger that we had to wait over 30 minutes for and was a soggy mess. seriously don't bother going.

“New Jumeirah by the airport”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

We recently visited the Cuba bar and the service is excellent specially from sona. True Jumeirah service standards. I am sure I will return once the bar is completely turned into a small night club with south American music.
