We enjoyed the food, and noticed that the young people around us were very upbeat and happy. However we had trouble having a conversation because the music was very loud.

Unity Bar was chosen as a venue for a 50th birthday celebration, it was all last minute booking for an unknown headcount, but Unity made it all easy and stepped up to the plate with the menu tailored for us. They settled us in, drinks were ordered, the men were very happy with the beer selection. we got our starters... More

Nice vibey spot for an end of project dinner to kick back at. They have a good selection of craft beers and the food was pretty delicious.

An unassuming restaurant, popular with locals.A nice variety of craft beers and ciders, friendly service and one of the best veggie burgers around (chickpea and feta patty).

A soon as you walk in the door at unity you know you're in a trendy place. Coming from the UK the prices are ridiculously cheap and we took full advantage, ordering 3 courses as well as countless items from the very well stocked drinks menu! We will definitely return to Unity, and i suggest others follow suit!

I know Unity is famous for their craft beers but we went there for a quick lunch and was extremely dissapointed as the food was below average. We ordered the Bangers and Mash and Calamari salad (main course). The suasages was a bit burnt and the gravy looked and tasted like it was instant gravy from a quick mix package.... More

Second visit. I am unable to categorise it. Clearly a favourite with Dubanites it serves a good burger, tappas selection for the craft beer lovers and the curry I great. Not first date material; this is a friendly "a good time that was had by all" place, as is evident by the tables being pushed together as people join. Service... More

Unity Bar came highly recommended by a colleague for having a good vibe and being more than just your normal "pub". The Craft beer revolution is very prevalent in the decor and all the way to the menus. Definitely recommended that you give the craft beer menu a perusal as some of the names are quite wacky. The food on... More

Look, the vibe is terrific and it is clearly a trendy place. The husband loved his craft beers and said his ribs were spot on. I had a delicious rump... I asked for a red wine sauce (fatal error according to the husband and he was right). After a spoonful I realised it was completely obliterating the taste of the... More
