We bagged a nice outside table with view of the fountains so that's a good start. We ordered the mixed grill and the lamb kebabs, some rice and mince lamb pastry rolls. The mixed grill was very salty and my wife couldn't eat it. My lamb was lovely and we ended up sharing that. After a long wait, the mixed... More

A friend and I had lunch at Wafi the other day and garnered a table right on the patio. We stayed for the fountain show and it was the best experience I have had of the Dubai fountains: just chilling and finishing desert while the light and music show happened right in front of us. The food was, as always,... More

One of the reasons I go to Dubai for .. need i say more! Best Biryani, very high demand lucky if you get it in late lunch hours. Best fattoush, hummus and tabuleh. Try their mango juice for sure ... fresh and best ever Awesome views of fountain, long waits to get seated by fountain view

Walk around the restaurant . The place is big inside, with a variety of food prep counters, busy , and waiting staff commuting from prep to diner . Its just a wonderful place to be in. And whilst you saunter from one food prep area you will be walking past amidst bags of spices, spice mixes, pickled olives from various... More

Food is great, we've tried hummus, babaganoush, moutabal, chicken liver, kibbeh nayyeh and chicken fatteh- all was delicious. Service is fast and without hiccup.

By the Dubai Mall waterfront, a sunny day of January, we had a great business lunch. Tasted many dishes and all were great. The place was packed so the delay in some dishes could be forgiven, the sun and drinks made it easier...

Excellent food & service. Great location to fountains & Burg khalifa. Highly recommend the mezze. Went last night & had one of the best meals ever. Had to wait 30 minutes for an outside table but that went quick when you have the largest mall in the world to look at! Great family venue.

I was visiting Dubai for the first time and found the restaurant in the Dubai Mall in the same area as a slew of American restaurants like Red Lobster, California Pizza, Kitchen, and Five Guys. I can get that stuff anytime in the States. I wanted something local, and this place did not disappoint. I chose a table outside which... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
