The Farm
18/05/2014 

Having heard about this place from my sister and seen the pictures, I had to try it for myself. I agree with the other reviewers that it's a little oasis tucked away in the desert. I came early Friday morning and was lucky to get a table for four people nestled near the pond. It gets packed quickly so I would recommend making a booking. My friends ordered the chocolate croissants for breakfast, oh my goodness they were huge and jammed packed with chocolate! I ordered a fresh watermelon juice and cottage cheese and spinach frittata. After breakfast we relaxed in the hammocks by the restaurant and enjoyed the ambiance. I will definitely be coming back for dinner as The Farm would look beautiful in the evening.

Tortuga
11/05/2014 

I came here last Friday for dinner. The location is great and if it was cooler I definitely would have sat outside near the water. The inside of the restaurant was huge and our waiter was really friendly, in fact he said he had been flown in from Mexico to help with the opening. The guacamole was great but was ordered just a little too spicy. For appetizer we ordered the Molcajete which was melted, hot cheese served with soft tortillas in a volcanic stone. Oh my gosh it was delicious! Next time I will becoming back to try their beef tacos.

The CLINIC
04/05/2014 

I sourced Yadig to find a good dentist & having read the reviews for this place I had to try it out. For me first impressions is everything (including that initial phone call to make an appointment). I was happy from the moment I booked my consultation, saw the outside of the clinic and I also liked the building's accessibility. As soon as I walked in I was immediately greeted by a friendly receptionist who guided me to the 2nd floor (all the staff also looked very smart). Who ever designed the interior knew how to make good use of the space as the artwork displayed on the walls and the way the furniture was placed was tastefully done. It was my first time visiting and the receptionist on the 2nd floor was very prompt filling out my details, shortly afterwards I was greeted by my dentist Dr. Matthieu. He was very personable, professional and also had a good sense of humour. I received a thorough consultation, check up and cleaning. Dr. Matthieu knew his stuff and the whole time in the chair was painless and quick. I will definitely be going back in 6 months time for my regular check up.

Salero
23/03/2014 

If you like Spanish food you will love Salero! I came here last Friday with my husband and I was impressed as soon as I walked in. We were greeted by a friendly Spanish hostess who took us to our table and then shortly afterwards we were met with our waiter for the night who was also really attentive. The vibe in the restaurant was great and there was also a DJ playing awesome music that really set the tone for a fun atmosphere. Given it was our first time to the restaurant and there were so many choices on the menu, we went with the chefs selection, my favourite was the calamari. Both my husband and I had a great night and we will definitely be coming back. If you have the Emirates Platinum card you also get 30% off the total bill which is a nice added bonus.

Maple Leaf Restaurant
21/12/2013 

I came here last night and had to try the all famous poutine. However, I started with a spinach salad which was drizzled with an orange, raspberry dressing and topped with walnuts which was really tasty. Next up came the Italian poutine, which was home cut fries smothered in a smoked style bolognese meat sauce and cheese curd topping. The poutine was so, so delicious, however, the only downfall was that I could not finish it all. Next time I will ask if they have a half portion. The owners were also there last night and were really friendly and made sure we left happy. I was happy but also extremely full! I will be definitely coming back to try their Ruben sandwich!

Mo's
16/11/2013 

I came here on Friday to enjoy a good breakfast after having a late evening Thursday. The City Walk is an impressive area and my expectations we're already high given it was a beautiful day and it was great area to go for breakfast. Once we found Mo's I thought wow the restaurant must be amazing as the outside area was packed with people. Well our experience got interesting after that. As soon as we sat down a woman with her family was complaining to the waitress for the fact she had to wait 45 minutes for her meal. Then another table began complaining as they we're also waiting 45 minutes, then another and another. So as I'm sitting there waiting for my breakfast and from being packed with people the restaurant was cleared out within 15 minutes with patrons leaving unhappy. Our breakfast came out within 20 minutes, I ordered the scrambled eggs, unfortunately they were dry and I was not happy with the overall taste of them. The coffee machine was also broken so only filtered coffee could be ordered. In addition the waiter, albeit a nice guy was lacking on attention to detail. Our server explained the restaurant has only been only open for 3 days, well the Manager of Mo's better pick up his game as there were a lot of unhappy customers in the restaurant and reputation and word of mouth is everything.

We assure you the staffing issues, as well as food related concerns have all been addressed and subsequently resolved. Please come by in the near future, bring the family, and see first hand!

Arabian Apex Laundry
10/11/2013 

I have been using Arabian Apex Laundry for quite a few months and have been very impressed with their service and professionalism. I arrange to have my suits dry cleaned and my husband's shirts pressed. Zabeer is the one at the call centre who answers the phone on 04 347 0347, he has a very friendly telephone manner and arranges prompt pick up of the items. It usually takes 2 or 3 days for the dry cleaning service to be completed and once the order is ready I call again for a delivery straight to my front door. Sometimes I do not even need to call as Zabeer has taken the initiative to dispatch the items. The gentleman who picks up and delivers the clothing is very friendly and approachable and the clothing is nicely presented and individually wrapped. I must say I am very impressed with the company and will continue to use them. I highly recommend for any one to use their business who likes the convenience of door to door service and a friendly and professional company.

Dubai Offshore Sailing Club
26/10/2013 

The weather in Dubai is now perfect to be outside and what better place to be during the cooler months than the Dubai Offshore Sailing Club. Last night they were hosting an event called Sandosc with local bands in Dubai showcasing their talents. The evening and vibe was fantastic! The stage had been built on the sand facing the ocean, so the sound was sensational. A corona was only 20dhs and if you were feeling peckish a buffet had been set up on the beach, with a standard meal only costing 30dhs. The night was great and was finished off with a DJ playing tunes into the early morning. I cannot wait for the next Sandosc!

CLAW BBQ

I came here for dinner last night with friends and could not wait to taste the ever so famous bucket of crabs. However, the table decided to order appetizers first; spinach dip, the juiciest tray of fresh prawns and the biggest portion of nachos that could have fed 10 people instead of the 6 we had on our table! The starters were complimented with an array of drinks, some of which included a frozen margarita and the yummiest lagerita! However, I could not wait for the main to come and try the famous bucket of crabs; spoilt for choice on the menu and not sure which to choose we decided on the Crabapalooza, a mix of the best crabs on the menu. Oh my gosh.....crabatastic!!! I cannot describe how amazingly good these crabs were, they were the yummiest, tastiest, juiciest crabs I have ever had! Claw must get these creatures from the secret sea of super tasty and delicious! Once the table had polished off every last morsel of what the crabs could offer I had to ask the waiter what was the secret behind them tasting so good and he told us it was in the broth. Well my compliments to the chef as they were unbelievable! After dinner my friends were treated to a ride on Cupcake........the famous bucking bronco! Thanks Claw for a great evening, I cannot wait to come back!

Reform Social and Grill
18/10/2013 

The Lakes is very close to where I live so I had to give this place a try and see whether it had the potential to become a new local! We arrived about 8pm and the place was already quite busy with families having their dinner. The restaurant had a quintessential English pub feel and had a cozy atmosphere. We were served quite promptly and the wait staff looked good with their traditional uniforms. I ordered a crab cake as my starter, however, I wasn't a fan on the shell I was munching on in between bites, which obviously meant the crab was fresh. For a main we ordered the steak for two, it was huge, although I wasn't adventurous enough to try the side of marrow that came served with the dish. I didn't have room for dessert, so instead we decided to have a drink at the bar. Given the restaurant had just opened were having a soft launch we got 50% off the food bill, although my husband decided he would drink his fair share of vodka for the night! Definitely will be coming back to try the dessert menu and for a Thursday catch up after work with friends.
