One of the enduring memories of our night at Brauhaus was listening to a German cover of an Atomic Kitten song. As the evening progressed our unfortunate ears were besieged by an onslaught of Deutsche pop, an upsetting mix of choons from the nation that reveres David Hasselhoff as a musical genius. Despite the dismal soundtrack, however, we had a fine and filling dinner.

For anyone with a penchant for sausages the restaurant’s meat-saturated menu is cause for excitement, encompassing every piece of wurst in the book. We opted for frankfurter-based starters as well as a crunchy garden salad and an incredibly creamy potato salad. We were also served an overloaded bread basket with pork butter: not even dairy products are safe from the Germanic flesh obsession. The starters were tasty enough, but it was the immense portions that took our breath away.

It’s not often you find yourself struggling post-starters, but the Brauhaus generosity was staggering and we awaited the mains in trepidation. My companion had picked what was essentially a mixed grill, and his eyes widened when he was promptly served with an array of sausages and a mound of mashed potatoes. That said, he steadily worked through the plethora of meaty digits, attributing his renewed vigour to the delicate flavourings of herbs and spices. My grilled hammour was superb, with a gorgeous parsley sauce that made for a culinary symphony that rose to a crescendo with the desserts.

Having enjoyed a respite for half an hour or so, we savoured the Brauhaus cheesecake and the apple strudel. The latter was married with a vanilla sauce, which complemented the cinnamon of the pastry magnificently. The German take on cheesecake is something to savour, with a sponge-like consistency imbued with a citrus tang and plenty of juicy raisins.

After this marathon meal, it was time to bid our costume-clad waiting staff a merry aufwiedersehen and take our leave. While the Brauhaus menu might not be to everyone’s taste (vegetarians stay clear), it does offer some truly splendid dishes – as well as rather interesting background music.

This may not be the poshest restaurant in Dubai but you cannot fault the food and the price! "Stodgy" food..... Obviously an English person wrote this, I mean English food is not stodgy at all?! Thursday evening meal deal is fantastic value for money and I will definitely be recommending this to my friends. The service we couldn't fault, our drinks were topped up continually and the staff were extremely friendly.

Go every few weeks. Great beers. Good stodgy food, particularly pork knuckle. Think back drop of nonstop EuroPop tad annoying. A good fun bar/rest.

Just order a pork shank if you want to eat a kilo of succulent meat with crispy skin. :)

Came here on th 26th and had a better expeience this time. Salmon, mix grill, chicken and sausage sword were ordered for the 4 of us. The meat dishes are usually dry with lack of any juice in them. Also I feel the prices are a little high for the quality.

Tad dissapoinred last night. We had ordered Mix grill, Royal hammour and BBQ baby ribs. The ribs were burnt in parts and dry and to make it worse there was not much meat remainig on it. Fork and knife had to be left by the side as you could only eat it with you hands. I pointed it out to the manager. The chef insisted that its to be eaten with hands but as I said there wasn't much to have and for the price you get something altogether different at other establishments. Though he didn't agree that there was anything greatly wrong with the ribs, he said I can order anything else I want, which I declined. To be fair, the other dishes were good but I just wish he had just admitted that the ribs were just not right. This was my 3rd visit to this place and don't intend to let this stop me from coming here again.
