Fridays is Fridays no matter where. Dubai is expensive, so expect to pay more for your burger. But the view from upstairs is worth a visit: is is a nice spot to watch the water ballet. Arrive early to get a table outside.

This restaurant is good as an american casual style restaurant. it doesn't have anything special or different than any other american casual dining restaurants. The food portions are big enough, many food varieties, and the taste is good but not outstanding. The food is not healthy at all, and it contains too much fat. prices are reasonable compared to the... More

The place is good. Nice view of dubai fountain. I liked the food as well. The only problem is that place is too crowded and it looks like from face of employees that they want you to leave fast. In the beginning no one even came to take order,it was fine because it was busy. But the only thing I... More

....and that's what we got. The menu was very tatty and the restaurant could do with a bit of a face lift. The staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. The food was what you'd expect of a burger chain, nothing more and nothing less.

The food everyone knows, but this TGI has probably the best view in the world, of the Dubai fountains. It's really hot and humid outside, so seeing this was on my list, my first view of the fountains was by accident when checking out TGI Fridays for dinner. Definitely recommended

We approached TGI Fridays with some trepidation given a small queue outside the door on a Monday evening in February. But on requesting an indoor table, we were almost immediately taken inside. Once inside, it was apparent that the queue was for outdoor tables which have one of the best views of the fountains. However, once in the restaurant, there’s... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
