Tasty street food served in a sleek setting for wallet-friendly prices

Time Out Says

This sleek, Asian eatery’s focus is street food, though you may not guess this when you step inside the recently revamped Madinat Jumeirah outlet, with its cool, plush interiors.

But it’s good value for all kinds of diners – families, couples, individuals and groups of friends are all present on our visit.

Staff are super-friendly and keen to ensure you have the best experience. We’re given a good rundown of the menu and its new “umami” offer, and some passionate recommendations, too. Go for what staff suggest, they know their stuff.

To start we order the soft-shell crab bao and wasabi prawns. The former are delight, with a tame wasabi mayo and refreshing mango relish livening up every bite. And the bao, stuffed with crispy crab, coriander and raw bean sprouts, all elevated by a punchy sriracha sauce is yum.

We then head straight to that “umami” section to explore the wonders of the “fifth taste” and to see if we can recognise it for ourselves. We pick the orange glazed beef short rib. The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender and full of a salty-sweet flavour, which “umami” seems to straddle. Ultimately, it’s delicious.

Portions are huge and dishes cost from Dhs35-Dhs80. For impressively bold flavours and quality food that won’t ruin you financially, book a table here.

The bottom line
Cool setting and great quality at a low price.
