Average Meal cost in Dubai

Hi guys,

Can anyone advise how much we should prepare to spend for an average dinner meal for two people in Dubai?

How long is a piece of string?

There is no overall average price. You can eat in cheap Indian places in the older parts of town for a few dirhams, in the fast food places in the malls for around the same you'd pay at home, or in top restaurants for 1000+ dirhams for two.

Avoiding alcohol will save you money as it's expensive.

If you give an idea of where you will be staying/eating in Dubai and what kind of food you like then you'll get more helpful advice.

As mentioned before, you could spend anything you want to.

Away from the tourist places, indian and Lebanees restaurant can be very cheap and has decent food. If you like pizza, we also found a Dominos pizza take away (even cheaper than at home).

Yes - as has been mentioned - we paid DHS17 for a meal at Burger King and over DHS200 at Go West at Jumeirah Beach Hotel - so it really depends on where you eat!!! Also - it certainly saves you a fortune if you buy the Entertainer book and you get 1000's of buy one get one free vouchers for MANY MANY MANY different places - from fast food, to coffee shops and ice cream parlours to sit-down restaurants....not to mention all the other attractions in Dubai that you get the vouchers for too! We saved a fortune!! (you can order the book online for AED295 and they will deliver to your hotel a day or so before you arrive - so it's there when you check in!! www.theentertainerme.com )
