We’ve redesigned timeoutdubai.com and introduced some new features and functionality to your intelligent guide to life in Dubai. If you’re a regular visitor, welcome back. If you're new to the site we hope you will find it useful. After several years without so much as a click of paint we decided it was time to give Dubai the website it deserves. Dynamic, active and brimming with ideas for residents and tourists alike.
This is just a beta launch for now (that’s just a fancy way of saying we’re still working on it) so we need your feedback. This is a community website for the people of Dubai and we value your opinion. If you see anything that doesn’t quite work, or if you have any ideas or suggestions about what sort of thing you’d like to see click here to leave a comment. We can’t make the website without the help of our readers so please do get in touch. The feedback page is just one of the areas where we want your comments. If you disagree with any of our reviews or opinions let us know.
Did we get it totally wrong when reviewing your favourite restaurant? Why not leave a review and give a rating yourself? Look to our reviews section and you’ll find our opinions on more than 700 restaurants in Dubai. Check it out. What did we say about your favourite? Have a look and leave your own reviews. We will feature the best reader reviews in our restaurant newsletter every week.
You can also keep up-to-date with all of the news and daily happenings from around Dubai in our brand new section: The Knowledge.
