If Bondi is an Aboriginal word describing the sound of water breaking over rocks (it is, apparently), then perhaps Bidi Bondi should be renamed to describe the sound of a perfect sizzling steak or tender burger being placed onto a soft bun. What that word might be, we don’t know, but we do know that Bidi Bondi serves up burgers, ‘sangers’ and pub grub as well as anyone in Dubai. The light and airy bar oozes surf chic and its relaxed atmosphere livens up as the day draws on. Staff are attentive but don’t pester, drinks are reasonably priced and big screens show live sports.
