Quite possibly the worst food I've ever eaten, "chicken" was most certainly reconstituted it was dry rubbery and had no taste at all. Half of my husbands meal was changed as they didn't have the ingredients, left hungry and angry at service. Simple terrible.

This is definitely one of the good restaurants in Dubai. The verity of food was great, the quality, the taste, the atmosphere, the service, just about everything you can think of is close to perfect. The scenery is a plus. Can not complain at all. Very much recommended

We dined at the Mirdif City Center location with five people in February. If you are from the USA and looking for a familiar restaurant - this will fit the bill. Everything from crayons on the paper table cloth to bread and oil. Instead of grilled garlic in your oil, you get crushed pepper but that's about the only difference.... More

Located in a quite corner on the first floor of Dubai mall, this is one of the few restaurants to offer a relatively relaxed atmosphere. It overlooks the aquarium from behind. The food is good and our waiter did his best although he was relatively the only one serving the floor.

I have no idea why some of my friends like this place, it’s honestly very over-rated! Their prices are high for no reason at all! The only yummy food they have is the complementary bread.
