Wish all of Dubai was a bit more like this! Our guests were... More

This is a traditional simple restaurant serving Arabic, Indian and Persian food in a nice traditional Emirati building in the Al Ras neighborhood of Deira. The food is fine, the portions big, the service speed and professional and it is excellent value for money. The decor is quirky kitsch and this is good place to miix with locals (to the... More

A hidden gem close to Al Ras metro station. If you are on the other side of the Creek, take the water taxi for just 1 aed and an 8 minutes walk. Lovely courtyard at the rear with a canopied roof and soft lighting. A good selection of different types of food, staff well able to describe what is on... More

I have ordered coconut juice and we took one dish to share it was local very... More

We were staying nearby so decided to have a quick lunch at Al Bait before heading off to the souks. Set in a lovely courtyard setting this is a restaurant for tourists but none the worse for that. Service is excellent and includes a welcome drink of rosewater as well complimentary bread and dips. Portions are large.

This restaurant appears to have two separate sections, Arabic and Indian. We ate in the delightful Arabic courtyard, and noticed that there are also slightly more formal rooms inside - empty when we were there, so perhaps they are kept for functions. Service is slow, but very friendly and we had a particularly kind waiter who was happy to recommend... More

I came to this restaurant during a tour of the creek - it is a tranquil oasis of peace, much needed as everything else is messy and noisy! Cuisine is emirati, and of course they do not serve alcohol :) i know they have some indoor dining areas, but i guess most clients stay outdoors, in the patio, unless it... More

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
