At the Emirates Towers branch of this restaurant, the ambience is set by musicians playing live on the outdoor terrace that overlooks the space-age towers. Service is swift, though staff come across a little nervous and inexperienced at times, and it’s not unknown for mistakes to be made by the staff taking orders. The food, though, is worth the confusion, with the Al Nafoorah salad a crisp and refreshing mix of cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, green chilli, mint, parsley and lemon vinaigrette. For something more substantial, you can’t go wrong with the meat sambousek. For a treat in an impressive setting, that won’t break the bank, Al Nafoorah is a great choice.
Open daily noon-4pm, 7pm-midnight. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 319 8088). Other location: Jumeirah Zabeel Saray (04 453 0444).
