Assia In Wok
Asian food with an icy view 93 Reviews
- Picture 1 of 2
Popping up in malls around Dubai, this chain has moved up a notch by opening a full on sit-down restaurant in the upper food court, overlooking the ice rink at Dubai Mall. As such the view’s unique and the eaterie’s white and green decor works to give you a feeling of space – a rarity in this mammoth mall where advert screens, stores and more clamour for attention.
However the food doesn’t seem to have caught up with the chain’s lofty aspirations. The menu features noodle dishes, Thai curries and various deep-fried starters. The lamb satay starter is but mains fair better with a crispy fish and vegetable sweet and sour dish arriving hot, crispy and plentiful. With the same menu as their takeaway outlets, what you’re paying for at Assia in Wok is the view and a quiet sit down away from screaming hordes of children.
