State 88

This new gem in City Walk pleasantly surprised me with its absolutely fresh food and delicious menu. I just loved the concept of this being a State by itself having its own laws and rules (which you can see on their walls) which all the dishes on the menu abide by. The staff are efficient…

Entrecote Cafe de Paris Downtown Dubai

This restaurant seems very popular with tourists and residents. Now who does not visit Dubai Mall be it a tourist or someone living in Dubai (of course after cribbing about the traffic and parking), we all love the mall and it is to my surprise how I have crossed this restaurant so many times and…

Harper’s Bazaar Café

It’s not surprising that Harper’s Bazaar chose Dubai as their destination to open their first even venture into food. With Dubai being known for having the best and first of everything, the fashionable Harper’s Bazaar Cafe seems inspired. When fashion meets food, the outcome is definitely a fashionable place with some uniquely created food. The interiors…

1762 Stripped – JLT

As such the concept of cafe’s is to have a small and cozy place serving food all day but then when you are in Dubai, everything is big and the best ! This totally applies to 1762 – an awesome cafe with rustic interiors, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, great food and decent service….

Paper Fig

An unassuming, pretty looking place in Moweleh area of Sharjah close to the Sharjah University. A once deserted area is now buzzing with life with residential and commercial buildings and some great line up of restaurants. We were told that this place is owned by a Emirati who is really passionate about the food served…

Local Bites

The all new Local Bites on Jumeirah road has some interesting dishes with a fusion of Emirati and Indo / Pak cuisine. The place is pretty basic with a majlis feel, giving you an at home feeling the moment you walk in. The staff are helpful and kind too. We called for a Jumeira Platter…

Karma Kafe

Most restaurants at Souq Al Bahr have a spectacular view of the fountain and Burj Khalifa and are extremely good looking, one of them is Karma Kafe for sure. We got there for dinner one evening and were extremely thrilled to see how gorgeous this place is. The service is great and so is the…

Eat Greek Kouzina

Eat Greek is by far one among the best restaurants serving Greek cuisine in the UAE. Just like any other cuisine one needs to develop a taste for Greek food and my love for Greek food developed post my visit to Greece last year. I realised that the flavours are so pure and it is…

Kaffa Beans

Silicon Oasis may seem out of the city but then there is a world out there. Kaffa Beans is a cute cafe with lovely interiors and ample seating. These folks not just serve great food but also have some exceptionally brilliant coffee that is roasted and brewed in-house.The staff working there are friendly and are…

OneLife Kitchen and Cafe Business Bay

This is for sure a hidden gem located in D3. Its a misconception that healthy food can’t be delicious and OneLife Kitchen and Cafe just proves that wrong. With lovely interiors, friendly staff and amazing food, this is a place you’d definitely not want to miss. They have great options for all day breakfast and…

Bean There Bistro

Located in the heart of Dubai in the  new block of the Airport Millennium Hotel, this place looks to be the most promising cafe in and around. It reminds me of cafes in Central London which are busy throughout the day serving quick breakfast or lunch to office goers or be a great hang out…

Magnolia Bakery – DFC

Breakfast at Magnolia is always a good idea and the icing on the cake is that you can indulge post breakfast on some amazing sweet treats. I really like how the place is done up very chic with the staff being extremely friendly and helpful. Joan served us this morning and was very kind. I…
