This is a nice location for lunch as you can watch the boats on the Dubai Creek. It is also conveniently located near the textile souk. The food was average, our salads swimming in the dressing. So I would not go there for the food.

Surprised at the recent reviews. We happened onto this place and were very pleased. The Greek salad was exceptional,as was the chargrilled lamb. Hummus was good,the only slight disappointment were the cheese spring rolls. Good portion size,great views. Would return.

Lovely location on a shaded deck over Dubai Creek. Our middle eastern hot and cold starters were perfect with our soft drinks. We were satisfactorily welcomed by staff and enjoyed our time at the restaurant. Definitely would go again for snacks and drinks.

Only stopped for an afternoon coffee and thus can not judge the restaurant. The waiters were complete and pleasant. The coffee was really strong as I like it and the atmosphere pleasantly relaxed

The view was beautiful but the food was disappointing. We ate the biryani , chicken kebabs and hummus, the kebabs were too salty and the biryani had no flavor.

Having taken visitors to this restuarant before when doing the museums, creek and markets, I was bitterly disappointed on this visit. The staff honestly seemed almost annoyed to be serving us!! Our first waiter made a huge thing of me asking for a one shot...More

My husband and I dined here twice. The first time was a late lunch/early dinner, as we had arrived to Dubai that day. We enjoyed sitting outside watching the Abra boats go back and forth to the other side of the creek. On our first...More

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
