I think the review made by the timeout staff is quite accurate. Nothing is special about this joint. not even their original sauce.
To be honest the worst thing is the decor ( the jumeirah branch ) i felt that i was going to get sick due the way the place was fitted

This article is horrible, the review is just trying to put Max Burger down. The burgers here are DELICIOUS!! Finally found a place that has burgers that compete with places like Fat Burger and Shake Shack, but for prices that match Hardees and McDonalds!! It's a great place, very clean, nice staff, great prices, and most importantly, very yummy burgers!! I don't understand how healthy options are being dissed in this review, the lowcarb options are great if you're out with friends and you decide you don't wanna ruin your diet! All in all a great place, and I hope they open up more brances in malls rather than in places around Dubai, they would get more customers that way.

Excellent review! You hit the nail on the head.
I like my burgers. So I was intrigued by this new European chain. After hearing all the hype and seeing ads everywhere, I just had to try it. After I went though, I wondered what all the fuss was about. Mediocre, at best. I was lead to believe it was going to be a high-end burger place along the lines of Shake Shack or Elevation Burger, but no. It's a slickly run chain along the lines of McDonald's or Burger King. But more expensive. And - I can't believe I'm going to write this - less tasty than those other big, world-wide chains. And I'm sorry, but a bunch of 'specialty sauces' (that cost too much for you to want to sample a few) does not distinguish one run-of-the-mill chain from another.
Anyone remember the failed Quick Burger from France? Max Burger (from Sweden) feels like that - a nothing special chain that competes with McDonald's and Burger King in it's home country. They probably do well in their respective countries, but only because they're 'home-grown'. I see no need for these types of restaurants to open in Dubai, a market already saturated with slickly produced junk food.

I couldn't disagree more. I regularly visit the branch in Oasis Centre and on the Beach Road, and have found the burgers far superior to those at the American Burger chains - but only a fraction more pricy. This place offers a great variety of burgers at extremely good value. I like the fact they have healthy & gluten-free options and that they truly care for our environment.
Perhaps people have been brainwashed by the cheap American burger chains with their burgers that only contain 40% meat, so when a quality offering enters the market it is not fully appreciated.

I am very confused about your review...
I tried first at Oasis Centre with my daughter weeks ago - and we were both very satisfied! We enjoyed the fresh hand cut fries as well as the burgers. I thought it was very good to have another bun which seemed to be a little healthier than the fluffy, sticky ones you normally get at any burger factory. And if you (as we did) choose one of the lighter burgers, you will get something tasting really different. I liked the tomato sauce on the top very much, coming together with lots of fresh lettuce, tomato and fresh cucumber it tasted very new and healthier.
The dips are very special and they are all very tasty - much better than the boring ketchups you get everywhere else.
If you were disappointed you should have tried their strawberry and chocolate shake - they are both really great.
The lady at the counter was very friendly, explaining all offered varieties at MAX and we really enjoyed our lunch there! Everything was prepared freshly extzra for us directly after the order, nothing was there ready prepared - as you can always see at other factories...
So, all in one: we came back already several times for the reason of taste...
