From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
With one toe dipped into the Middle East, and the entire other leg still planted firmly in Australia, Yalumba provides a service of which Dubai is not exactly short: lively entertainment for average food. Truth be told, any expat who has lived here more than six months knows the name Yalumba. It’s boisterous Friday brunch, close proximity to the equally raucous Warehouse brunch and evening entertainment (last time we visited there was an impromptu limbo face-off) have secured it’s status in Dubai folklore, yet the dining experience is a world removed from such shenanigans. The décor – understated dark chairs and crisp white tablecloths give an almost Oriental theme, although the menu is bona fide ‘Occa’; pork belly and lamb shanks, along side steaks and prawns so juicy they make your fist wet. It's the starters that are the real surprise however here, with fresh sushi and sashimi that, are enough to fill you up if you're not careful. If you have an aversion to meat, head down on Tuesdays for the all you can eat seafood bonanza, with tuna, lobster tails and those wonderful, mouthwatering prawns.
