Baby Bazaar

Went here on Saturday as a shopper and it was amazing!! Located in Times Square mall once a month (check their Facebook page for details), it operates like a flea market would except its all for baby and mother things. Mostly used items but there were also a few tables selling new maternity clothes, crafts, and other brand new gifts. If you are a mum who has a ton of baby clothes that you no longer need, hire a table and sell it all! If you are a mum to be its worth having a look. I'm not generally a fan of buying second hand items ESP for babies, but I found a whole heap of brand new designer clothes that were being sold that baby never even had a chance to wear! Got brand new Gucci baby trainers for 40 AED (instead of 500aed) and brand new beautiful pottery barn curtains for 10 AED! Serious bargains going on here. Well worth the visit!

Dubai Flea Market
03/04/2013 

Completely worth waking up at 5am for. I went at the beginning of march to sell a whole heap of junk (I say junk but my stuff is all really nice and mostly expensive) and made over 3000aed. Not bad for clothes shoes and trinkets that would never and havnt been missed. It costs 250 AED for a big table at the market and you get 2 chairs with it. It's huge so booking way in advance is probably not necessary. Worth getting down there as early as possible to avoid the madness of everyone trying to get their stuff in at the same time. But as I said, worth it to make a nice bit of cash. Ppl will try to haggle, hard so be firm with ur prices, ESP for the expensive ones. The people that run it are super friendly and helpful, just beware as thieves lurk around ur tables and will steal given the chance.

Exclusive Links

Honest, kind, compassionate staff who are a pleasure to deal with. Unusual to find as most real estate companies have such bad reputations. Was faced with a very difficult situation regarding my apartment and I received nothing but support from these guys when they could of easily chosen to be difficult. Highly recommended and I would most definitely deal with them again.

Emirates Sky Cargo
03/04/2013 

Best value cargo/air freight I could find and believe me I did my research and got sooo many quotes. These guys were by far the cheapest and the quickest. I paid just over 3000aed for 180kg door to door from Dubai to London. It took 1 week ONLY and they brought boxes and packed for me too. I was very worried and anxious about some of my belongings and one of the managers plastic wrapped everything once it got to the warehouse and even sent me photos of it all packaged before it was sent away. Amazing service and speedy delivery as promised. Insurance is included but nowhere near the value of my items had something gone missing or got damaged but luckily that didnt happen and is quite rare in any case. Just to give you an idea, GAC quoted me 4700aed without packing, without insurance and with a 3 week delivery timeframe! Rip off - sky cargo all the way!

Ok if you are prepared to wait 2 hours for your order (no joke) and then after waiting all that time receive a half filled salad bowl.... Consistency isn't their thing and they never have pomegranate juice available even though its on their menu. Place would be great if they hired more staff, filled up the bowls properly and added gluten free pasta, tofu and sweet potato to the menu :) also beware of the dressings - most are unnecessarily super fattening unless you go for balsamic alone.

The Lime Tree Cafe & Kitchen
03/04/2013 

We hired lime tree to do the catering for an event at our villa last week. For under 2000aed we got 7 different canapés - each 24 pieces( the choice is extensive and includes a kids/dessert menu), 9 liters of fresh juice and 2 waiters for 2 hours who arrived early, heated all the food and served everything including the drinks to our guests. Fantastic service and I was very pleased with everything. I have one small suggestion, it would be really helpful if they had photos of the canapés in the catering menu. Some of the items don't look as appealing as they sound and If I had seen photos prior I would have made different choices. But overall a pleasant booking experience and would use again for sure.

Hertz Rent A Car
03/04/2013 

I have hired a car from these guys for almost 2 years. Had an ok experience up until a few weeks ago.... Basically got a phone all from them on valentines day to tell me of 2 traffic fines that I got in November and I needed to pay 3000aed for them! I asked why so much, was told that a red light of fence is 700 with 2 week confiscation or 2500aed without confiscation. But because the traffic fine was 3 months old already I don't get the option of confiscation and have to pay the full amount. I asked why it took them 3 months to notify me then when I speak to them every month to renew - was told their systems were down! Absolute disaster of a system they operate. I tried to contest it as much as possible because its totally unfair i dont get the option to pay a reduced fine but in the end just paid up because it was stressing me out. Still so wrong though!

Sunface Beauty Salon
21/01/2013 

This is my hair after going in for a japanese hair straightening treatment. Sunface deleted the photo i posted on my previous review so i am reposting it as yadig have assured me they can no longer delete our photos. Do not go here unless you want to be abused and have your hair burnt to a crisp. Sunface have also deleted all their rude comments they had previously written on yadig - obviously felt some shame even though I have still not received an apology for what they have done to my hair.

Sunface Beauty Salon
11/01/2013 

Outraged by the audacity of this salon to PUBLiCALLY lie about why they burnt half my hair in a Yuko straightening treatment. The owner just replied to my review saying it burnt because I lied about having highlights in my hair. Fellow yadiggers have known me for years and know I have never colored my hair EVER. I have 200+ honest reviews, mostly positive. These guys have only negative reviews by real customers and fake positive reviews by their staff. I am writing this review to seriously warn ANYONE who wants to go their NOT to go there. My hair is everything to me, the most important part of my image and I take pride in how I look and groom myself. No one deserves to go through what I did because of unprofessional, uneducated staff. :( I went to a professionally salon who assessed the damage and said it was due to incorrect application, which is what I said from the start. Surface needs to be shut down. My only mistake was trying to save a few pennies and buying a daily deal voucher for this salon instead of going to my usual salon who does my hair perfectly every time. You get what you pay for. I got burnt. :(

The Flying Panda I am not sure i understand your post above, or the intention behind it sunface? Either way, this is my response to your mambo jambo. 1) You are waiting for my call..... May I ask why you are expecting ME to call you? After you abused me in ur salon, then you proceeded to publicly insult me in previous Yadig posts, blame me for your mistakes, call me a liar and accuse me of working for Yadig...... Again I have to ask, why are you waiting for my call? Is that what you call customer service? Is that your idea of an apology? Whatever it is, it seriously sucks the air out of my ego. 2) yes I did my hair in September, 4 months ago, it has grown only 1 inch so the rest of it is still burnt an frazzled as you left it. 3). Call you on your mobile??? Why on earth would I have your mobile number??? 4) I will never step foot in your joke of a salon again. You want to see my hair now? Ok, how about I take a photo of it right now as it is this morning and post it on Yadig.

Farah1, the only positive reviewer for this disaster salon is the owner btw. Which is why she has disliked all the honest reviews we have written of their terrible shocking service. I am absolutely disgusted by these people, as you can tell I am STILL suffering the damage of my burnt hair and still so mad about what they did and how they treated me. Thank you Yadig for giving us a platform so that these people can't hide anymore.

Sana3khan I agree with Flying Panda...they are unprofessional, and rude and even can't speak English very well...read the above post and you'll know it...I just tell you "Sunface" until you don't accept your mistakes, you will never get successful in your business and one day you won't have even 1 customer.
