Review of Balance Cafe

This one was a definite "surprise find" - located in a mall (Oasis), this cafe has a different take on food - especially Indian food - giving the healthier option! Menu is limited - but enough to satisfy your pangs! If you are looking for a "mild version" of Malabari fish curry, this is the place to go!

Balance Cafe is on the 3rd floor of Oasis Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road. Clean, fresh, healthy food choices. Recently they had changed the menu too with several new items.

Unlike cities like London, Dubai rarely offers healthy option for food.This is a rare healthy food restaurant which offers an excellent menu.The Moroccan spiced chicken, wild mushroom and asparagus risotto and baked yogurt are must try.The ambience is great, could be a little livelier.

We found the cafe during our visit in Oasis mall. Usually when shopping it's almost impossible to find a healthy meal in a shopping mall where fast food is on display.
At Balance Cafe they serve balanced/ healthy meals for vegetarians and meat lovers.
I had the quinoa dish and my husband tried the vegetarian lasagna. Both were excellent.
The portions were generous and more than enough if you want to watch your portion size.
The down side to or lunch it was the kids meal/ menu: not really designed for a child younger than 5.
The service was average. It is quite hard to get their attention even when the place was empty.
Our meal had good value for money - normal restaurant pricing for Dubai.
I will go back for another lunch/ dinner next time we visit the Oasis Mall.

I hesitate to give away the secret as this is an oasis in Dubai. Very nice food in a super relaxed atmosphere. Good healthy options. And the prices are very reasonable. Americano is 10 AED which sets a good example for other places in Dubai. It would be nice if they also had Gulf News (there seems to be a boycot against GN in cafe's in Dubai).
