Very friendly experience with great staff. Food is good but not great with good portion sizes. The heritage experience verges on the tacky side. Overall the staff and service are the best part of this restaurant. They were simply excellent. Good selection of emirati, persian...More

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
