Time Out Says

Let’s start off by saying this: We wouldn’t consider SIKKA to be a “café”, but rather a restaurant combining different aspects of a dining experience like we’ve never seen before.

The interiors are eclectic, with blue hues and furnishings that mimic dining within an old souk alleyway – the word that translates into “sikka” in Arabic.

The restaurant is a mélange of local, Indian and Persian influences reflected in an old-time Emirati setting with a modern twist. And the menu is set out like a broadsheet paper, which is a nice touch.

Start off with the famous karak zafran, a traditional South Asian tea with an added touch of the vivid spice, followed by the falafel sandwich, a zesty, filling ode to the Middle Eastern staple stuffed into khameer bread. It’s delicious.

Also superb is the keema naan, a tasty – albeit heavy – version of the Indian bread, and chicken livers, with a tangy kick of pomegranate molasses. The hummus is rich and creamy, too.

The pièce de résistance, however, is the 24-karat gold molten chocolate cake, oozing milk chocolate. So far, so Dubai.

A dining concept that’s a cross between the city’s old and new? You can’t go wrong with SIKKA Café.

The bottom line
Excellent range of dishes at good prices.
