We ate here 07/03/2017, we were given a table by the balcony with amazing views of the fountains, the food was excellent and the service was impeccable, we would thoroughly recommend this restaurant when visiting Dubai.

We had lunch here on a Friday. The service was prompt and friendly and the food very good. We ate outside in order to see the Dubai fountains and the Burj Khalifa. The inside certainly looked inviting and would have been a good dinner venue.

From the same "family" as the The Buddha Bar, Karma Kate is a busy, restaurant with a great view to Burji Khalifa and fountains. Quite pricey, great choice of contemporary Asian food.
