Moti Roti
08/09/2013 

To be honest, I've been waiting to try Moti Roti so that I can write this review... Needless to say, the Roti was phenomenally filling but light. I had initially ordered for a Chicken Tikka Roti but settled for Masala Chicken one, since they ran out. The Roti alone is priced at 15dhs, but combine it with a Lassi and you'd be shelling out 20dhs only!

Although, the delicious curry kind of sunk to the bottom - it was still a pretty darn good 'healthy' meal combined with the Skimmed Yoghurt Mango Lassi which was just right - not too sweet not too heavy. I have been looking for decently priced restaurants that serve Salads, but I think I'm confident that Moti Roti can fill in that gap for me! Cannot wait to try their Chicken Spinach on Tuesday!

Moti Roti (Business Owner): Thank you 'crazy mother' for the words of encouragement :) We'll be better prepared next time so you don't miss out on some tikka-lovin', and if you're ever in a salad mood one day just order one our of "Carb-bored Boxes" www.motiroti.me/menu ;)

MMA Fitness Center
25/08/2013 

Initially, I signed up for a 12-month package that cost about 250dhs a month. I lost about 8 kilos in 4 months with MMA Fitness, my cardio was up by 40% and my body fat percentage reduced drastically! My days at the Discovery Gardens branch were so much fun! The trainers are friendly, super supportive and will encourage you to keep going when every cell in your body says otherwise. My first Circuit Training class, I barely made it through the first circuit. But, within a few weeks and a strict 'no-quitting' policy I was actually starting to enjoy MMA. (Ladies, this is a brilliant way for you to learn how to defend yourself!)

Easily, my favorite gym in dubai - With classes for Beginners and as well as Experienced Athletes, from hardcore Kick Boxing to the fun and easy Zumba - Everyone can find their own recipe for Fitness Success at MMA Fitness. It's a darn shame that I live 45 minutes away and they don't have branches where I live :(

Fibber Magee's
25/08/2013 

One of Dubai's hidden little gems, Fibbers is quite the treat! More than warm folk around, the food is brilliant, so is their service. They will always be my favorite place to grab a pint and watch a good Chelsea game!

Spin Dubai
25/08/2013 

Having had high hopes for this 'NEW' concept, I can say that it was quite disappointing. The ambience and atmosphere were severely mismatched to the energy in the room. My friends and I just hopped on over to Seville's for Sangria instead. Maybe Dubai needs to really accept this place. It's a shame that it wasn't as enjoyable that we hoped.

Bu Qtair Cafeteria
02/04/2013 

Definitely a childhood favorite for me! Get there by 7pm if you do not fancy waiting in line to order and then another line to get a table, followed by the wait for your food :) Simple, super fresh seafood marinated in the most typical Indian Spices, Deep fried by a kind, multitasking champion of a South Indian Chef -accompanied the softest parathas and a yummy home-style curry! Would eat there for the rest of my life!

Papa John's Pizza

May be it's the delish garlic butter dip thing, or maybe its the abundance of cheese .... Love love love Papa John's. If you are looking for a slightly greasy, definitely yummy pizza place - this should be your pick!

The Music Room

Although the house bands keep changing, the fact that you will ALWAYS find good rock music here, is comforting! Perfect for any situation : Bad day at work, or a date where you actually would not like to 'converse', Love The Music Room. Lots of Fun Times to be had!

En Vogue Beauty Center
30/10/2012 

Despite reading the reviews for this place, I bought a COBONE voucher for Keratin Treatment plus a few more things at En Vogue. I hesitated to use it for months, even tried to pass it onto a few friends. But when I finally managed to muster the courage to book the appointment, I braced myself for the worst. Surprisingly enough, it WAS NOT bad. My Keratine-ed hair is perfect, not poker straight - 0 Frizz, exactly what I asked for. The Staff were pleasant and helpful. The hair stylist who worked on me was very polite, professional and listened to the instructions I gave him, in advance (Yes, I can get cranky when it comes to my hair) All in All, I think this is definitely a decent place to get a blowdry or a mani-pedi !

salma85 hi crazy mama,i want to ask you about your experience with the keratin treatment?? Did they ask you to not wash or tie you hair for 4 days?? did they also ask you how do you want your hair looks after the treatment (straight or wavy??) Thanks for helping

crazymama Hello Salma85. The keratin treatment was good, lasted me a good while. The stylist asked me not to wet my hair for 3 days, and said that I could use any shampoo on my hair. I did tie my hair back a few times before I washed it out, though. No, they did not ask me how I wanted my hair to look (wavy or straight). I clearly instructed him that I did not want it poker straight - before he mixed any of the product into my hair :)

Pearl Beach Resort

Excellent Service, very clean rooms, lovely pool side! All in all - a decent City Break from Dubai with a few close frnds. We relaxed by the beach, played some volleyball, took a swim in the pool and enjoyed ourselves. Would definitely recommend this place!
