Owner description: Discover the beauty of the traditional corners of Dubai on board of our unique thematic Dhow floating restaurant “Asya”. From our exclusive location on the ancient Creek - Al Seef Dock E, your experience will be full of energy and peace at the same time. Our classic style in a traditional and dreamy atmosphere, the quality of our food and the live music of our bands are some of the ingredients to make you feel delightful.

There wasn't as much as I expected to see along the creek's shore after dark, but the other decorated boats were pretty and it was enjoyable. The best part for me was sitting topside, dining al fresco, on a warm evening, but the downstairs is comfort-controlled. The buffet food was fine. There were some brief dancing shows. But the pop music played later was too loud. Various companies provide a similar service, so compare costs. I went with Royal Vision, which charged AED120 and it was fine.

It's interesting and high recommended to try the floating restaurants when you visit Dubai..
You need to be careful about the charges, they vary a lot from 275 and 250 Dirhams if you book through hotel concierge to 130 to 200 dirhams if you book with the company directly. And from 55 to 150 dirhams if you visit the deals websites .
Never book with anonyms companies ,because there is a risk od delay or no show plus very bad quality of food.

Enjoyed the entertainment on the boat. Didn't really enjoy the meals though. The scenery was also lovely.

If you have never been to a floating restaurant, this can be one time experience to relish. Otherwise, if possible, you can opt for something else. Thousands of tour operators are available to send you there. Advisable to go for Groupon/Cobone deals for the best price, if you can manage to reach the place on your own. Otherwise tour operators offer pickup and drop too. Dhow Dinner cruise in Creek area generally sails around 8.30 PM in very sedate and slow speed. It just sails for almost a km or half and continues sailing around. Welcome drink is there, and loud noise with that. Below average food almost spoils the evening and at the end one so-called magician tries his best to bring you back. It can be boring and money going waste, so an advice being repeated – If you have been to any floating restaurant or cruise before, do not waste your precious money here.
