After an intense session at the gym, nothing gets rid of aches and pains as good as Cryo does! 3 minutes and you are as good as ever. Highly recommended!

I have to agree with Sam on this one. Electric Days is FAR from alternative. It's actually the most COMMERCIALLY alternative thing in Dubai. Their door policy is absurd, and their scanning of your Facebook photo to ensure you are "hot" enough is pretty bad. Recent rumors have also been saying that they are even getting more selective on the people they choose

  • Best for: Business lunch

Simply Put:

No parking
Poor Staff Attitude
Poor Hygiene (watch employee walk into restroom, use and not wash hands before going back to work)
Poor Experience

Thought it would be nice to try something different as it caught my eye on the drive home one night... Well, easy conclusion:

Waste of time!

Nice views and reasonable service, but poor food, lobster tasted of fairy liquid, sides all cold. Steak OK but undercooked for medium. Overall underwhelming experience.

The outside decor is pleasant, the menu is well written the plus side ends there. The service was rushed, maybe not enough staff. The starters were bland, and they delivered the wrong order. The steaks were very poor indeed, tough, difficult to cut and chew, and they arrived barely warm. We were given complimentary deserts, but they were too sweet and nothing special.
For the price you would get better value and flavor from a casual steak diner.

My husband and I went to dinner here a few weeks ago, we each ordered an appetizer and an entree. They first brought the bread basket which contained bread sliced as thinly as a cracker. One couldn't taste the bread it was so thin. I had never had bread served like this and I have been around. My husband ordered 2 orders of (vietnamese) vegetable roll for appetizer. The rice paper was dry making all the rolls inedible. We also ordered a prawn with salsa appetizer. The prawn was tasteless and rubbery and the appetizer tasted of nothing but chili. He ordered some steak salad for entree and I ordered Shrimp Curry. He and I ended up sharing my entree because his was again was inedible doused with dressing to the point of being watery. Mine was only slightly better but the rice made it ok since we were starving. We ordered the check before we finished eating. We could not wait to leave. Honestly from the time we sat down to the time we walked out of the restaurant was no longer than 35 minutes, despite the lovely ambience .

Today we returned for breakfast with our kids hoping that perhaps the restaurant was more of a breakfast place and this experience would be better. We ordered scrambled eggs, classic waffles, a butter croissant, a chocolate croissant and I asked if we could have non-sliced bread. I was told no that it came sliced. My husband went inside and asked them not to slice a baguette and bring it out. We had also ordered coffee and fresh orange juice. The first round of coffee was good. But when the food came, it was as disappointing as the dinner. They didn't tell us, and the picture was misleading, that the chocolate croissant was simply a cut butter croissant with chocolate to be melted inside. It had plenty of chocolate but it was not melted. The classic waffle looked like it came out of a package and not freshly made. Regardless it was cold, and with no taste. My second cup of coffee was watered down compared to the first one.

I am not sure that the issue is of service because the service was efficient, both times we came. The waffle if it had been made fresh would not have gotten cold between the time we ordered and the time the food was served. The food was really sub-par and no amount of service could make it better. We left very sad because it is such a lovely place and clearly no expense spared to create it, except in the kitchen.
