Chopsticks

Chopsticks
There is much that’s maddening about Chopsticks restaurant. Top of the list may well be that, despite the name, diners actually have to ask for chopsticks to be brought to their table. Other frustrating factors include the depressingly mall-pop soundtrack, intermediately drowned out by kitchen noises, with further distraction provided by the huge wall devoted to explanations of the Chinese horoscope, complete with friendship suitability ratings based on animal year. We suppose this might act as welcome fuel to fire conversations, but it’s not clear why anyone would bring a new acquaintance here, for one simple reason – the food is an acquired taste. Hailing from Beirut, Chopsticks serves a fast food-style take on Chinese cuisine – a Lebanese PF Chang’s, if you will – which sadly tastes cheap and synthetic. Meanwhile, the best thing this restaurant had going for it – a pleasant terrace view overlooking the Dubai Fountain – has unfortunately been wiped out thanks to ongoing construction work to fill in the water and extend Souk Al Bahar.

    Me and my colleague had fun eating..... especially the Shrimp Blast, it is really a blast full of taste!!

    Foods serve are for a lesser value with superb taste. Come, try and speak for yourself.

    KUDOS to the management & friendly staff, "keep up the good work!"

    Thanks.

    It's my second time to eat here.. It's Ramadan, and it's just happen that we are near the Restaurant.. Stupidly standing waiting and lookign for someone to usher us in.. Anyway, they dont prioritized who came in first, had to wait for any waiter's attention so they can take our order,, Ordered at 7:15 and have to wait.. i just noticed that it is late when it was already 10mins to 8 and they have served already a family who came AFTER us. And to top it all, appetizers were served after we finished our main meal! what a joke!! and all the manager/supervisor-whoever he is said is Sorry...

    We visited Chopsticks while on holiday in Dubai and for our 2 week stay this was the best food I have tasted. Not only the food was fresh , fantastic and great porsions but the presentation of the food was very nice.The service was great as the managers freqently visited our table and the waitress serving us was simply great.Iwould definitly go back and recomend it to all my friends and family.

    This restaurant is great. The review posted about is so off, the food is wonderful, I eat at chopsticks once every two weeks or so, it is my favorite place for dinner on the weekend, the service is great, the food is amazing, and what strikes most is their prices are wonderful. You get more than what you pay for, I encourage any sweet and sour food, seafood and shrimp lover to visit this place and have a great meal, I invited 8 people to chopsticks and we had all kinds of dishes and a lot of starters and I ended up paying only 450 dirhams, I definitely recommend this place, keep on shining chopsticks!
