There is a very varied selection of goods to buy. The prices very high. I ended up buying a rug and brass shield! Got a strange look at customs.

The restaurant is situated on the first floor of the Madinat Souk, virtually above Trader Vics and, if you have an outside table, with great views over the canal. We started with 2 large mezze plates, one hot and one cold, before moving onto a variety of individual main courses. There were 8 in our party and everyone enjoyed the... More

I wouldn't say it was bad but I would not say it was great. The food was average and the service was fine. But there are many other options that the food was much better. My suggestion is to try other places and only go here as a last resort.

The food was ok. The staff was not. We did not get any help with the menu. No one spoke to us. The male waiter did not speak to me. Just through my husband. It was not a pleasant meal. The hostess was the only nice staff. Did eat here just once.

I have been to Dubai many times but this was my first visit to the madinat. It's worth a visit to see the little authentic Arabic shops and there are plenty of restaurants to eat in here. You can also take a short boat ride around the waterways. Good if you have younger children.

We were strolling through the markets when we came across this restaurant. The entrance is unique which drew us in to look at the menu displayed. The set up is amazing with beautiful Arabic furniture and decor. The staff led us to a really comfortable private area for two. The waiter went through the recommendations. The flavours of the food... More
