If you’re not a fan of leaf-based cuisine, don’t let this eatery’s title put you off: there is far more to Saladicious than salads (but don’t get us wrong – there is still a very healthy selection for leaf fans). Located around the corner from the ever-busy Jumeirah Jane favourite Lime Tree Café, Saladicious is a less frantic option for breakfast, lunch or even dinner, either inside or on the small terrace. Decor is similarly bohemian and service is mostly friendly and efficient. The food is typically pleasant, the Temptation salad with grilled brie and strawberry on the Fresher Menu, which changes every six months, exceptionally so.

A real nice place situated away from the buzzling main streets of Jumeirah. Food, ambience, service is all very good for a romantic evening or casual dining with family and friends.
It's a real value for money.

This is a great place to eat. Not knowing a thing about cooking I eat at the restaurant all the time. Mostly, my experience was positive; however sometimes things slip here and there, but who cares. I have introduced this place to dozen friends and they all loved it. Great value for money!
However, I must say that I have 2 kids and let them play in public places, but it is often that parents bring their kids to "family friendly" place like this and then let them scream and misbehave. I noticed that customers get annoyed (me included), but are being polite and say nothing. Mind you, restaurant is not your living room; oblivion is a bliss but only at your own place, please!

My girlfriend and I go here on a regular basis and have never had a bad experience.

There was a person obove who said that the food was small and to quote 'the nicoise salad portion was so small that i could inhale it' but everytime when we went there we walked out with a doggy bag full of food as we could not finish it.

this is an amazing restaurant and i would recommend it to anyone who loves italian cuisine.

Let me admit, one should never order Thai Salad in a non-Thai restaurant. But given my love of the flavors of the Orient and my temporary lack of wisdom (caused by sever hunger due to no breakfast that morning) I unfortunately succumbed to the combination of the words "Thai" and "noodles."
The dish was composed of flat noodles in fish sauce, topped with Italian greens with vinaigrette, topped with sauteed chicken, in turn topped with generous amounts of Kraft's Hot BBQ Sauce. Needless to say, it was not Saladicious.
The coffee was ok.

Had the French Onion soup to start with, which was excellent. My wife and I then shared the chicken paella. Trust me, you need to share this as the portion is enormous.

Looked round at the other tables and the food also looked good, and there were a lot of empty plates.

Will definitely go back.

We have had a couple of meals there -a lunch and a dinner. The food was generous in portion, very fresh and delicious. Service was with a smile and entirely welcoming. My 'made-to-order' salad came out exactly right and I will be going back as well as recommending the place.

I think the reviews above are by the restaurant owners or there friends................just went there today:
- chewed on a SEED in the olive paste... almost broke my tooth. The chef came to our table & said" this is how we get it from the cans" he said it in a "deal with it" attitude......no apology at all
- after waiting for 20 minutes for the main course to be served they forgot to order one of the main courses from the kitchen although it was there when the waiter repeated the order
- the nicoise salad portion was so small that i could inhale it! and it wasn't really more than a can of tuna with lots of onions & 4 pieces of potato!

bottom line don't go there.............. i know i won't!
