The chicken and mutton biriyani are good. However, the service (promptness/speed/courtesy/greeting) is awful! Went there for lunch today and had to wait for 25 minutes (in spite of having just 3-4 customers) before receiving what we ordered!

Totally overpriced and undersized food and drink!
I passed by yesterday and thought let me try them for breakfast.My cappuccino was just slightly bigger than double espresso in volume and price what you'd pay in a 5 star hotel.
fruit salad served in a small bowl and it was cut to tiny pieces, I suppose to mask the questionable quantity. yet that didn't stop them charging the same price as a generous portion of fruit salad anywhere else.
I was disappointed.

  • Would you go back to this restaurant? No

On Saturday 9th May, I made a booking for brunch at “Double Decker” on the following Friday and received a text message confirmation that my booking had been accepted. On Thursday 14th May (note: the evening before I was due to attend the brunch – NOT at the time of booking), “Double Decker” called me to tell me that they were cancelling my booking on the basis that “they only accept reservations for a minimum of 3 people”. I was invited to go along as a walk-in and wait around to see if they could fit me in,

I am SERIOUSLY offended by this turn of events because:

a) It was a lie. (A previous reservation by telephone for two people had been accepted with no problem and no mention of a ‘minimum of three’ policy).

b) The message was that, as a single individual, I wasn’t actually welcome at “Double Decker” but would be tolerated as a fill-in to make up numbers and help them generate their target revenue

c) I strongly suspected that I had been ‘bumped’ in favour of a larger group and – you’ve guessed it! – more money

d) It might have taken a little more thought, but “Double Decker” COULD have accepted bookings from lone individuals and simply asked them whether they minded sharing a table with a minimum of three other lone individuals. (Alone in a pub, it is nice to have someone to talk to and, facing each other across a table, people invariably find something to talk about).

So folks – a heads-up. If you’re alone in Dubai, “Double Decker” considers you a second-rate customer and probably won’t allow you to enjoy brunch with them.

Very very disappointing, i just had Hammour & Chips. My fish was not good, i had a very thin slice of fish which was smelly and very dark in colour, also the portion was small. To be honest it made me feel sick eating it. Everything else was Ok, and I wont be ordering a delivery from there ever again.

This hotel appartment management is horrible and not value for the money. Please choose some other apartments at this price.

It is not only the best restaurant for the Filipinos. The foods are not so heavy and oily like from other filipino restaurants and the staffs are very kind and professional.

I was attend a brunch with my mother to this hotel at Al Dhiyafa restaurant. It was amazing. I didn't know there are in Dubai executive chefs so good. Definitely I will come back to this place for food and service. Everything was delicious!

Really brilliant and inventive food. The tasting menu is reasonably priced (for dubai) and the staff are excellent.

Only Rang Mahal is better in the city.
