Time Out Says
The first thing to say about Nola is that it’s really difficult to get a table. That’s mainly because it’s so popular, but also because it’s been known for reserved tables to not materialise. Yes, Nola feels original for Dubai – a good-looking, partly open-air, ground level nightspot, with live music and a central marble-topped bar that is absolutely heaving. What it isn’t, is a place where you can really enjoy a meal. Nola – a name affectionately given to New Orleans – has a menu packed with traditional southern American foods, but not all of it has the taste to back up the ambition. The veggie jambalaya, for example, doesn't taste of much, despite claiming to have smoked bell peppers and spicy Creole rice. The cornflake chicken, though, has a terrifically crumbly crust and the zucchini waffle is perfectly textured. Nola almost claws back a win with dessert, providing you can handle the Mississippi Mud Moelleux or Oreo chocolate cheesecake We definitely recommend a visit for drinks at least.
