Arabian Tea House Cafe

Teas served in Baskatia courtyard cafe

Time Out Says

Set in the historic Al Fahidi district in Bur Dubai, the Arabian Tea House (formerly known as Basta Art Café) is a large courtyard with plenty of seating for arty types, locals and tourists. There are a mixture of chairs and tables, with net curtains overhead acting as shade from the sun. As the name suggests, there are lots of different teas available here. If you’re feeling hungry, there are sizeable salads and sandwiches, which are all good without being excellent. You’ll come here for the experience and atmosphere as much as the food.
