On Taza’s toilet walls there are framed sketches of chickens pottering around in their natural habitat. If I’m not mistaken, in some of these drawings the birds are actually smiling. Also, in the centre of the restaurant, there’s an image of a chicken spectacularly rendered in glass as though it were a peacock. We’d already dodged DFC (Dubai Fried Chicken) across the road due to its cannibalistic vibe – the colonel in their logo has been replaced by a chicken licking its lips – and now Taza’s prettification of the chicken form wasn’t making our eating mission any more comfortable.

Flattened symmetrically and zinging with a lemon tang, the BBQ chicken set our minds at ease. The chicken kofta came on a bed of addictively peppery rice and the Arabic bread arrived hot and puffy straight from the oven. So in spite of our earlier fears, we ended our meal by dumping a heap of polystyrene, plastic forks and grub-fingered tissues into the bin – telltale signs of a satisfying fast-food experience.

Anemic and totally unacceptable meat. Horrible. The atmosphere is making a bit up - but not enough...

Hi,

I went to this restaurant yesterday evening with my friend with a lot of appetite and walked out sad because of the behaviour of a staff.

The staff at the counter was so very not gentle and looked he was not liking his job. On asking thrice he bothers to say what the specific arabic food is which I had asked for. Then he gets the order and kind of slides the plate in a very unfriendly manner as if it was for dogs. The food was good but when returned to the counter for some sauce he charges me 1dirham and gives me the sauce which I later saw lying on all the table bottled for use.

The staff was so very ridiculous that he did not even bother to behave to 2 women in this manner. I would never go there again and also would not suggest the place to any of my friends.

I
Regards

Babita.
