Fish Bazaar scrubs up rather well. The walls are adorned with generic Thai images, and there is even a requisite Buddha statue at the door. This is a Thai-style fish restaurant, where guests choose their fish, how they want it cooked and what Thai sauce they want it slathered with. The staff – all relocated from the Fish Bazaar formerly at the Metropolitan Hotel – are polite and friendly, and will help you through your choices.

Try the red snapper with chilli and sweet basil, or a selection of shrimp and mussels. Mains arrive in good time (a good job since the starters aren’t up to much) and are really very good – cooked with skill in the open kitchen and complemented by exciting spicy sauces. The desserts are a letdown, though, so quit while you’re ahead and get the bill after your delicious main.

Excellent service, staff very friendly but perhaps a little over-attentive (we wanted a quiet romantic evening). It was October so we chose to eat outside, perfect setting and ambience. My partner had the Tom Yam Kum as starter, very good but not spicy enough - no problem, they were happy to spice it up as needed. Excellent for a quiet, romantic, upmarket Thai seafood dinner, highly recommended.

I visited this restaurant because of the review I read on Time Out. I went with two friends and we had a really good night. I haven’t tasted such good Tom Yum since being in Vietnam. All the food was really tasty. My friend ordered the calamari that I noticed was in the menu above – I have to agree, it’s not the normal calamari dish you expect, but the waitress explained to us when we ordered they cooking style for this dish is very different to normal, so we were prepared… Good tip to have also when ordering from the staff. Overall had a really nice dinner and I’ll go back for sure!

I was a regular guest at the Fish Bazaar when it was located at the land mark Metropolitan Hotel. I'm happy to say, that my expectation were exceeded upon a recent visit at it's new location at the Habtoor Grand. The Seafood is always so fresh and the staff are very friendly, informative and attentive.
A great spot, Highly Recommended!

Love this Restaurant!! Seafood selection is really amazing, and FRESH – the best part is that they cook the seafood exactly how you like – steamed/grilled/fried and then you choose the sauces, and side dishes. It’s a really nice to be able to chose this as I know I will like the taste, rather than off a set menu. They seemed to have sushi also available- which a lot of people were also ordering. When I’m next in Dubai, Fish Bazaar is on the top of my list to re-visit!

I have been a few times to Fish Bazaar, and I have to say the food is great. I live in JBR, so it's perfect location to walk down to...it's nice to get away from the busyJBR Walk, and this is perfect relaxed & quiet location.

Seafood is always fresh, and the service provided by the staff is very refreshing...attentive, professional and yet friendly.

I would recommend anyone who likes seafood style or Thai Cuisine to check this place out!
