Chopsticks - Dubai


Time Out Says

There is much that’s maddening about Chopsticks restaurant. Top of the list may well be that, despite the name, diners actually have to ask for chopsticks to be brought to their table. Other frustrating factors include the depressingly mall-pop soundtrack, intermediately drowned out by kitchen noises, with further distraction provided by the huge wall devoted to explanations of the Chinese horoscope, complete with friendship suitability ratings based on animal year. We suppose this might act as welcome fuel to fire conversations, but it’s not clear why anyone would bring a new acquaintance here, for one simple reason – the food is an acquired taste. Hailing from Beirut, Chopsticks serves a fast food-style take on Chinese cuisine – a Lebanese PF Chang’s, if you will – which sadly tastes cheap and synthetic. Meanwhile, the best thing this restaurant had going for it – a pleasant terrace view overlooking the Dubai Fountain – has unfortunately been wiped out thanks to ongoing construction work to fill in the water and extend Souk Al Bahar.
