From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011

Head into the heart of Deira and you soon realise how big Old Dubai is and how much of it is usually left unexplored. Sitting opposite a small park area, the Marco Polo hotel is one of those places which once saw more traffic through its doors than of late but still has several themed restaurants which draw people in. Chopstix doesn’t open until 7.30pm (we early birds were caught out) and, ironically, is the only Chinese restaurant we’ve been to in Dubai that didn’t have the wooden nippers out and waiting for us. Or even offer them once we’d ordered.

Starters of crispy spinach, honeyed sesame lamb and spring rolls were hit and miss – the lamb arrived as crisply burnt shreds that didn’t seem at point to have contained any meat but the other two dishes were large and decent. Mains continued this theme, lamb with peanut sauce would have been better described as lamb in slightly spicy gravy and roast chicken with Cantonese sauce was just that and no more. Chopstix has a huge menu which looks promising; however, in reality the standard of ingredients and spices are as lacking as its namesake utensils.

Excellent restaurant in our hotel
Great start
Soup and starters superb
Main courses a bit bland- perhaps wrong choices
Service very good but cleared things away too quickly - where did my beer go?
Decor really cool - like the huge chop sticks and the stream running through the centrepiece table to the pool is inspired
Music just right

KEEP IT UP!!!
It is always a great pleasure to visit CHOPSTIX whenever we are in Dubai.
The ambience has not changed a bit in the last more than five years, which should be a pleasing experience if done.
Thanks

Slow service. Nothing about the food is chinese though it is chinese food that is served. The Manchow soup is good dont even bother trying the others. The Iceberg lettuce roll is also good. As for the main course all the dishes starting with Singapore, Hong Kong etc should have been left there honestly... Definately not recommended for a family get together

The place has good Chinese food. The ambience/decor is not very stylish but the service staff is good.

The food tastes good and is reasonably priced (value for money). Good for a family dinner or a quiet outing without much hassle.
