When we first arrived, I was really impressed by the venue, as the decor and style were very nice. We were greeted straight away and taken to our table in the lounge. We were then offered drinks, and given our menus. A selection of breads were served along with our drinks, whilst we were waiting for our starters. We decided to share a starter of cold meats. The presentation of this dish was great. The meats were served on top of a crispy flatbread, with some olives, pickles, tomatoes and picked onions on the side. This was really good. Our main courses arrived and we were really looking forward to eating them as they looked at smelled great. We didn't think the portion sizes were that big until we started eating. We couldn't finish them all, but they were really good. We were offered desserts and coffee but we declined this as we were both stuffed from our starter and main course. The service from start to finish was great, and of a very high standard. Overall, I would say that we really enjoyed our visit. I am sure we will be back, although maybe for dinner instead of lunch when I feel this may represent better value for money.

Hey,
Your article is short and sweet however did you actually ask the company to show you their sustainability certificate.
Asking simply because I used to work for FSC in Finland and I know how shady logging industry is in Europe.
Not many qualify for "sustainability" as such and nowadays everything can be checked by simply typing the certificate number on line.
Better safe than sorry !
Regards
Pierre

Very disappointed by this salon. I went to the one in Emirates Towers for a simple haircut (mine is on vacation) and possibly manicure. I explicitly explain to the two receptionists, one smiling, the other one not at all, seems bored, that I want a young hairdresser because I don't like conventional cutting and I look more for some style. Guess what, either they didn't listen to me or they didn't care because they asked the oldest hairdresser to take care of me. Took care is a big word, he asked me two questions such as short or medium, I tried to explain what I would like but he didn't bother and after exactly 12 mns the cut was over and I was supposed to be satisfied. Omg! I cancelled my manicure and left after paying this poor service twice of what my exceptionally skilful Syrian hairdresser usually charge me.
Never never again.

2-3 times a week me and my family always visiting this area, last night around 9:00 pm we visit the restaurant and we surprise that all the plates they have and cutleries is disposable. Well the main issue is the Waiter last night who approach us and saying why we have more than 1 plate in our table. I got shocked when he told to me like that, of course rice and main dish is together and Noodles is separate. I use also 1 soup bowl. He wanted me to use only 1 plate to put and mix all my food there. He told also that they don't have enough water to wash it. There is two waitress and a guy in cashier area got shock when I told to them what happen. I lost my appetite last night which is I always wanted the buffet menu. I feel disrespect and humiliate, I will never come back to this restaurant again. I've planned to celebrate my birthday and my wedding here because of the reasonable price but kind of service like that is I can't. I will ensure 100% not to recommend this restaurant. My Family raise me to respect food and someone in front of you while eating is need to respect. I really feel bad and until now I can't remove on my mind due to first time happen this in my Life. Corrective action i did not wish too, damage for my feeling is my concern, emotion. (BUFFET)

I love this place. For someone who spends most of his time (not out of choice) at superficial corporate dinners around pretentious people, over the top resorts & 5* hotels - this place really helps me wind down and enjoy good food around good people. It's authentic in the sense you get what you pay for. The restaurant and the people who go there are not trying to be things they are not, which is often what we seem to be consumed by in today's society. Service was great, staff were friendly, amazing and great fresh seafood. Certainly not for the "Nouveau Riche".
