We were lucky and got a front row table to view the Dubai Fountains. Food was good Dubai standard and price was not as bad as you could expect for the location. Would go there agin to watch fountains but not for the food or service as similar restaurants are plenty around.

Visited here for a quick bite to eat whilst watching the Dubai mall fountain spring into life, Food was good but they completely forgot my main meal and although full of apologies I did not get it until well after my wife had finished her pizza. Food was good and plentiful and the place would have received a better rating but for the missing dinner!

I have been there twice, the place is great from the interior deco to the menu. The problem resides in the food... The garlic prawns were "flat" no taste... The chichem salad ... Tge chichen was deep fried and tasted fish. Terrible!

We had two friends to entertain after the Dubai International Food Safety Conference and wanted to be near the fountain.
So, the meal was fine. The entrecôte steak (2) was good to average, i had a burger that was very large as i couldn't eat all of the trimmings. The others had a mix of pizza and other things and said that they had enjoyed it.
We had various fruit juices to drink and they were all good.
Strangely, i fine the menu a bit difficult to use as it contains a lot of information, but this was a moor thing as perhaps they are just trying to look a bit more different. (Most menus are very similar generally).
Overall very good.

Nicely decorated restaurant with great view of the musical fountain in Dubai Mall and good view of the Burj Khalifa. This place is always packed with more than a handful of names in the waiting list. I thought "a must try place" so i walked in for dinner and thankfully they had table for 2 so we didn't have to wait. The menu looks interesting as they had various of cuisines ranging from Japanese-Western-Italian. So each of us decided to order one of each and share. The food was well presented however to my horror, it was the worst food I've ever had. I couldn't remember exactly the name of the food that I've ordered but we had sushi, pasta and chicken. Their pasta was overcooked that it tasted like a normal noodle that was made meant for those who can't chew, or should i say chew with your tongue and their marinara sauce tasted like some low end ketchup brand. I thought maybe it was just the pasta. Had a bite on the sushi and it was the worst sushi ever, seriously. The chicken was not as bad as i expected (probably because of the first two dishes I was well prepared to taste the worst). It was well cooked however i couldn't give any good feedback for the taste wise. Overall, it was a disappointment to me. It's probably the worst of pastas and sushi i've ever tasted, seriously. But i gotta give it to the good & strategic venue. What the price like? Its the same with other restaurants out there, on average.
