From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010

Located within one of the older hotels in Bur Dubai, Antique Bazaar specialises in dishes from Hyderabad. The menu is extensive and is a firm favourite with the locals. The starter portions are huge, making ordering a main course almost redundant. The dark ornate decor has nice touches, with spices scattered underneath the glass table tops. Live music is constant and the band is certainly lively, though their croons are not particularly conducive to conversation. In this respect, the entertainment is in fact more memorable than the food. This can be a bit burdensome, especially as the performer scowls if not paid enough attention.

Not as good as it was 6 months before. Food takes long time to be served, we had to ask 4-5 waiters for the same thing. Male singer was singing songs of only one person since he was giving more. All other guests including mine song request was not played, even though I complained for that but still not entertained.

Flavour-less food, overpriced (15 dhs for a roti?), very bad service (the waiter tried to sneak away a half empty bottle of sparkling water from our table and in the process spilled it all over!). It took them one hour to bring our Veggie platter (it wasn't on the menu and they charged us 140 dhs for 10 chunks of bland paneer and mushrooms). And the bill had been inflated too...overall a very poor experience. Never again.

Went there earlier in the month for a quick lunch only to find that I was the lone diner there and keeping me company was the musician playing the sitar with a recorded song in the background.
Had the kebabs for a starter which was enough to be shared by 2. the chutney didn't have the zing to add to the kebabs taste. The mutton mains was too spicy.
Hope to give the place another try.

Food takes really long to be served, food was also oily.... the music was good though the dance is not something I would recommend for family. It was also expensive for the kind of food and service. In short, I would avoid going to this place.

On last Friday,I went to Antique Bazaar with two more friends, hostess helped me to get a table even though I didnt had booking. Waiter approached us in friendly manner and given right suggestions for food & drink. Entertainment group was looking very organised and were playing nice selected songs and we enjoyed great dancing performance as well. Food was superb and Service was excellent.
I have to agree this is a perfect venue for indian food lovers with live bollywood style entertainment.

Seating was too crowded. I got the only table between the kitchen and the entrance. I could not even pull my chair back to sit in it and had to somehow slide in. Music was loud and off key. Dancers made it look like some shady Indian pub. Food was ok. Service was terrible. Not going back there ever again.

I'm just back after a business dinner at ANTIQUE BAZAAR and it really made me to review the restaurant at this late nite.

1) Inspite of a dinner table reservationfor 8 Pax, they kept us in a embrass situation when myself & guests arrived at restaurant with a surprising note as there is no table left and there is no booking made.

2) It was really pathetic when the staff picked back the served pieces of Kababs from my plate and served to other guest in our group without no request to do so

3) Service levels are utterly poor and the Staffs are not well trained or professional to manage a decent crowd in the deserved way.

4) Entertainment Dance and loud songs were resembling a local BAR in gutters... No way it can be considered as a family restaurant.

Its a restaurant best for NOTHING and its such a wondering experience from a Sheraton managed hotel...

I have to agree that it not a place for family dinner, because of all dancing stuff. I and my family were much embraced of the dancers who were dancing on songs. I didn't know of that, otherwise I wouldn't take my family.

If I take out the dancing element, it will make the ambience and dining a great and joyful experience.

I have to agree that the restaurant has some tasty and unique dishes in their menu. I liked most of their curry items. I will go back again to try out some items from their menu and this time I may go alone or with friends...
