Dhow and Anchor
20/08/2014 

Dhow and Anchor has totally changed since I last came here which has been awhile. It actually has transformed from a traditional smokey English pub into something modern and nice. I do miss the old pub since it has been there for about 12 years though. Overall they have a great bar area with comfortable bar stools. The pints are pricey if you do not hit the happy hour...45SED. Happy hour they are 25AED and I believe happy hour is 6-8pm.

ET Sushi
12/08/2014 

Tried this place for lunch and it is so over priced for conveyor belt sushi. I mean 25-30AED for 2 pieces of sushi or sashimi....thats redic. I mean most of the rolls were California rolls with some salmon on the top or 25AED for 2 piece of fake crab stick...come on!

I opted for the lunch special which was a bento box for 112AED. Food wise it was good but it was a small bento box. Value for money this place is a joke. The food and service is good just be prepared to leave hungry and annoyed.

This place has been around for a long time and it is never busy. I think it is time they change the restaurant or stick another restaurant in. Emirates Towers is just depressing for lunch....no wonder everyone walks across the street and eats at DIFC.

Bystro
05/08/2014 

Bystro was nice. The restaurant was well decorated and the food was good. I had their salad which was good and filling. But honestly overall it was just average. Nothing was bad and service was good. I just don't know, there was just not anything great and the value for money was way off. My chicken salad was around 64AED which is really just high for just a good salad. Is this place worth coming back to? I don't know. It just seemed like another average restaurant that has sprung up in Dubai.

25 Degrees North Restaurant
03/08/2014 

I ordered from 25 Degrees NorthJLT branch yesterday for the first time and these guys are awesome. I think this is my new go to Indian delivery place from now on. They delivered on time, within an hour, and the order was correct. They are a little bit more expensive then the average delivery Indian Restaurant by a little, not much, but it is worth it.

I ordered chicken bariyani, butter chicken, black dahl and some garlic nan bread. The bariyani comes in a clay pot that you can keep which was cool. All the food was excellent, just as good as any 5 star restaurant....no BS.

If you are looking for a new Indian Restaurant I would check out these guys.

Bushman's Restaurant and Bar
13/07/2014 

Really cool place, nice design and the food was good. Australian steak house newly opened in Anantara on the Palm. It was kind of busy, assuming most of the guest were from the hotel. they have a cool rustic Australian theme going which was nice and a nice open kitchen where you can see what is going on. They have exotic meats on the menu like emu and kangaroo. I tried both, emu was pretty tammy. They also have a bar and cigar area that was nice.....not busy though and pretty small.

For dinner I had the filet with a house salad and some asparagus. The steak was cooked perfect to medium rare. Overall it was pricey, around 350AED. It was a nice place but I would say its semi casual. Then only negative things was the service was not that good and their air condition was usual...pretty steamy in there.. The waitress was pretty oblivious to everything and always had to check when I asked her a question, hate that. Overall it was a good place but they need to work on some things for that kind of money.

Cactus Cantina
15/06/2014 

This was my first time to their new location and honestly I was disappointed. Cactus Cantina has completely lost there old school mexican vibe they had at their old location. I mean this place is nothing like the old one. It is much smaller and tucked away in wafi mall which is depressing. The food was the same which was good but i just could not get over the decor. The old one you would want to stay and drink and have a good time for a couple of hours. The new place is depressing and you just want to eat and leave.

I still think they have the best mexican food in Dubai but now there is a price to pay for it. I wonder if they do delivery...if so this will probably be how I eat from them from now on. Sorry Cactus but you broke my heart.

Sega Republic
15/06/2014 

Sega Republic is good fun but man it is expensive. I don't know if I am just being a cheapo but the minimum amount you can spend in there is 200AED. I mean when you get a card to activate any machine you want to play you have to buy a card first and that minimum is 200AED. I popped in because we were about 30 min early for a movie and my kid side took control. They have a lot of really cool new games that I have never heard of. Being use to atari and nintendo these games were mind blowing. I mean some of them you got in and it spun you around like upside down while you were playing the game.

Overall good fun but a little pricey.

Q43
26/05/2014 

Very cool new bar in Media City. I really like what's going on with Q43 in Media One Hotel. They have this New York type feel to it that is laid back yet nice. Great place to come before a night out or after work drinks. We came up the other Thursday and it was bumping after work. We stayed until about 8pm and it kept getting more and more packed. It had a good Media City work crowed plus people started coming in that were pre-gaming before they went out. It's a big bar with a great view of the palm and Media City. Definitely going to be a regular here.

Societe Club
26/05/2014 

This place has some mixed reviews so far but I like it. Nothing gets the blood pumping like MC Hammer or Rick Springfield. Yes it's a small club, yes it's a little smokey and yes it's over crowded. But what else do you expect from a popular club in Dubai. I suggest you don't show up unless you have a table or you will never get a drink unless you are a chick. We had a blast. The music was good and everyone was dancing, what is not to love.

More Cafe
22/05/2014 

I have not been back here in awhile so I forgot how good this place is. Alis soup is ridiculously good. Actually you could just have that as your meal since it is so filling and big. If you have not tried it you are missing out. For my main I had the salmon fillet 220gm which I had poached over mashed potatoes and it was excellent. This place is packed during lunch but it is so big you can usually walk in and grab a seat. Overall a must if you are in Emirates Mall.
