Bidi Bondi is an ok place. I would not go out of your way to get here but if you are in the area and you are looking for a pint and hamburger I would give it a try. I tried the hamburger this weekend and it was good. The bar/restaurant reminds me of a place that has been around for a long time and it is time for them to change or refurbish the interior. It has that 'local' pub feel to it and I assume everyone that was in here probably lives within walking distant.

Excellent atmosphere and brilliant value for money - lunch and 4 drinks for 120 AED. Visited in August but will definitely go back when the weather cools down a bit for a swim and drinks :)

Stopped by Bidi's yesterday (Friday) to grab a burger as Bidi's is probably the best place to get a a quick burger on the Palm. I was shocked when I walked in. It was busy and there was no way I could get a table, so I opted to get take-out. 12 mins later I was walking out with my order. I asked why it was so busy and the bartender explained their 4 drink and a main deal for 119 dirhams. That's a good deal, no wonder it was so busy. This deal is Fri & sat 1pm-7pm.

I have not eaten here probably in 2 years because the last time I came here the food was just terrible so I stayed away. But I thought I would give them a try since it had been forever so I was shocked to see how much they have improved. I had the the beer battered onion rings which were definitely home made and not frozen, they were pretty good. Then I had the prawn ranch wrap which was very good. I think they also changed the decor a little because it definitely is cooler looking inside as well. Overall a huge improvement from the last time I visited so it has definitely earned another visit from me. Now if only they could fix the bar so your knees would fit under it.

Stopped in to Bidi Bondi for a few drinks on Thursday night. While it wasn’t very busy, the live music was excellent. Very smoky and an older crowd but I thought it was a nice place to sit and have a drink and a chat. We weren’t there at the right time, but they also have a great Fri/Sat deal – 4 drinks and a food item for 99Ds from 1-7p.

Just had lunch here and the food was great. The portions are large but then so are the prices. You will pay 70 aed for a burger (with salad, coleslaw and chips) so it's well worth it. Only issue I have is that the sodas are only "kiddie" size glasses for an adult price. Very relaxing lunch overall. Will be back.

How unhygienic is it to serve food on a wooden cutting board! It wasn't mine luckily because I would have returned it. Overall their food is ok but they have a sweet deal on Saturdays : 100aed for 4 drinks and food before 7pm.

Being a Palm resident, I have been here a few times. The food is ok, the usual deep fried pub food, although a little on the expensive side for what you get. The drinks are reasonably priced for Dubai, although the happy hour is very good. We went there last time for the quiz night. It was an absolute shambles, the quizmaster seemed to be proud of her lack of knowledge on everything, she kept having to ask people to read out words with more than 2 syllables and just caused confusion amongst everyone. We left early, not bothering to see if we won a prize. Such a shame as we heard it used to be great before she took over.

I used to live next to this place on the Palm a few years ago and the food was nasty as hell! I am good friends with Chris, the manager for this place, and I told him that he needed to fire his cook and get a new one if he would like to see any increased revenue in his business. Sure enough, about a year ago, he hired a new chef and the food now is a lot better. The beers are priced reasonably and so is the food. Now is the time to see this place to make your own review. If you went there a few years ago and hated it, I bet you would change your mind now.

Broke a diet to come to this place and eat a fish n chips and just watched table after table come, sit, eat and leave before we found out that our waiter never even placed our order and blamed it on the waitress he "passed our order on to". Finally got our order and the fish was horribly tasteless an it had to be absolutely drenched in lime to even have the slightest amount of flavor. The manager in the en came once we were eating and offers to comp our drinks, our one soda and one beer.horribl

Cool, relaxed little Aussie bar on the palm (shoreline apartments side) - outside seating and tables over look one of the pools there... interior is casual and sports themed, drinks reasonable prices with happy hour thursdays until 8.00pm - Food is ok with a mix of usual bar food - currys, fish and chips, wraps, burgers etc. not amazing but fine if you can't be a*sed to cook after work! Mixed crowd mainly western. Great if you live on the palm or nearby, but not somewhere you'd really choose to travel to from a distance.

Really nice chilled out beach bar/pub. Good food menu with some nice salads and healthy options along with the usual pub grub. Always a nice atmosphere but can get crowded when a big match is on. Good location and nice outside garden when the weather is good.

Been here a few times now and have always had a good time. Stopped by here on Friday afternoon in time for their friday deal which is 60aed for a main meal and 3 drinks between 12-5pm. Not bad at all. The menu for this deal is limited but is pretty varied. You can choose from breakfast/salad/burger/nachos and drinks can include coffee/beer/wine/juice. The place was packed out yet the service was amazing. One of my friends ordered a glass of wine and changed her mind after it had been brought to the table and the waitress happily took it back and changed it for a coffee. Another friend complained there was not enough salsa/sour cream on the nachos, the same waitress took the plate back in to the kitchen with the half eaten nachos and re-topped it with everything. Rare to see this kind of service and a smile whilst giving it anywhere in Dubai. Lisa the waitress needs to be given a pay rise!

Went here for quiz night the other night which was hosted by Geordiebird from the radio show. Was a really fun night. I ate here as well and was quite impressed with the food as my previous recollections of their meals was not great. I had a tuna salad and my friend had grilled chicken nmash. A lot of their meals are of the deep fried variety which is why I opted for the salad. Minor quibble - I had pavlova for dessert which was teeny tiny but clocked in at 45Aed! seriously! Good drinx deals tho

If you're not into watching sports definitely avoid this place when there's a major game on TV. The crowd is similar to Barasti and it gets pretty rowdy. The service is sooooo slow but I'm not sure why. How long does it take to make nachos? (which were gross btw) The manager was nice and let me use his phone charger. This place could be so much better as they have a great location.

As a place for drinks it's 3 stars. I havent tried the food in over a year. Last time I did try it, I would have given them negative stars

I'm going to give it another star, why I don't know I just guess I want to like it bc it's so close to the house. There was a pretty good crowd in here tonight though and they do have about 4 different types of Australian beers. Still not that good though. I'm so confused.
