If I had read the earlier reviews, may I would not have tried Seville's. Thankfully I did not. The place is authentic Spanish, with decent Sangria and Spanish Estrella beer on tap. OK, it has Dubai prices but no surprises there. Service was great, better than many other restaurants in Dubai 2015. The food was good and did not take too long to arrive at the table.

I recommend that you ignore previous comments as the place as it is now does not deserve such bad press.

I will return for sure.

Poor decoration, poor service, food ok but doesn't make up for the overall experience.
I wouldn't advice this restaurant to anybody.

This is one of my favourite Asian restaurants in Dubai. I am no food critic but I love to eat. Everytime I go, I can decide on the spot whether I feel like Chinese, Thai or even just Japanese. I love the East Shrimp cocktail and duck rolls as a starter; mango salad; fresh lime and mint juice; salmon sashimi, duck rolls, all their east fusion rolls. A great take on Asian food and so well priced too!!

I usually do not write feedback unless it is a stunning or a crying game experience. Dinner at BA last night falls into the latter one.
While I found decor quite a sight, it was the last good thing for the evening. We decided to go for set "silver" menu and stalk the chef with hungry eyes. To make a long story short :

- no, it does not take 25min to serve a starter
- no, it does not take another 25min all over and over and over and over again for each dish to be served
- speed of service was dead slow despite place being half empty on a Tuesday night -
- after tasting the tom yum sum ( the jelly whatever was a disgrace to this otherwise fantastic meal ), I did not feel like having courage to try the next dish - and I should not have

- neither rice, nor chicken or beef had any taste, veggie was overcooked and dead on arrival

- dessert - I do not have sweet teeth so it truly does not take Jacques Torres creation to please me, but what we got on the plate is simply beyond any proper English language vocabulary....

The only eatable ones - starter and duck - but then again, maybe I was just hungry.

Fairmont is a top notch hotel -a garage to house Aston Martin - but BA is barely a bicycle.

Shooting down all the 5 stars of Fairmont, my verdict is bye bye to BA....

  • Would you go back to this restaurant? Yes

Around the same time last year, I was in Mint Leaf in London and still remember its beautiful ambience, relaxing music and a bit twisted but still very authentic Indian dishes. Today, We tried the brunch in Mint Leaf here in Dubai and could say that all the dining aspects from ambience to food to music to service are equally good if not better than its sister restaurant in London. Unlike many other brunches in Dubai where dishes are laid in the buffet for hours, here in Mint Leaf, you can be assured of fresh and quality food as they are prepared a la minute and served to your table at a very comfortable pace. The ambience is enhanced by the great mix of music from the live DJ. Friendly and efficient service were provided by the hostess, waiter and the manager.
We will surely come back, specially that its just a block away from our place.

Vivaldi by Alfredo Russo

Service is often a weak point in Dubai, and Vivaldi was one of the worst experiences we had. Staff had no knowledge at all about the menu or wine list and couldn't even set up for the starters without major faux pas'. A complaint to the manager produced a new waiter who was friendly and capable. Why not sending competent staff in the first place? It clearly wasn't because the restaurant was so busy.
Atmosphere was lacking with the restaurant being nearly empty, which wasn't helped by the uninspired decor.
Food was ok, but not up to standards one would expect of a restaurant associated with a chef with Michelin star.
Even the lovely view over the creek couldn't be enjoyed as the windows were extremely dirty.

I came to HYU restaurant today and very disappointed at their food and staff! I have ordered beef soup with glass noodle. The soup was not strained with staff swimming after when the meat gets boiled, I said to waitress I don't like this and can't eat this, for that she replies we did not force you to order and did not let me choose other dish and let me pay for that! I was very hungry and get disappointed ! Why do I have to pay for food which I did not like! Not enjoying to eat! Very unprofessional

I like the simplicity of this place - it evokes Japan very well. The food is really high quality, fresh, beautifully presented. Staff attentive but not overly so. By Dubai standards very reasonably priced.
