Last minute decision to go here after watching dubai fountains. After waiting for a table we were escorted outside to our table which had excellent fountain views. The food was ok, service was slower than what I was expecting.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at this joint while watching the dubai fountain show. The meals are excellent although a tad expensive ( but the quality makes it worth it). Do try the mocktails as they are a delight as well.More
