Great service and cooking time was short. Excellent staff attitude, however make sure you plan your trip to the cloakrooms as they don't have any inside the restaurant, you need to walk back out to the mall facilities which is a minute or so away.

First of all, the location is a bit hard to find. Me and my friends had a struggle to find it. we have asked to wait by a not so friendly hostess outside. Since my friends really wanted to try the TGI Fridays here in Dubai we waited for almost half an hour but honestly, the food is not that... More

We came for some food here so we would get a nice view of the fountains. The food wasn't the best but it was a very busy night with the fountains being on. The view from the balcony was amazing though!

Can't go wrong with TGI Friday's, you know what you're getting yourself in to! Good food, great location inside the mall but service could improve here slightly, but nevertheless, I had a great time!

100 m from food court. You need strong willingness to find it. Fortunately you will see red letters sooner or later. We love tgi and eat always there once when we travel with kids (No tgi in France. .. can you believe it). I am happy to have some words with staff but they need to catch the moment when... More

Went here last night in the hope of watching the fountains from the terrace but was dissapointed to be told the outside area was closed for renovation. We were sat next to the window but this was blocked out. The worst part - the food. The portions were so big the starter left no room for main - i'm not... More

Dubai is a place where service and comfort certainly takes a whole new level, however and unfortunately, someone forgot to tell TGI Friday's - Dubai Mall that they were in Dubai. I understand some renovations were ongoing onsite but the place felt really narrow and closed; this is the 1st Friday's we go with no ambient music; at the entrance,... More

Food is good. Typical American dish. We tried their dinner meal and it's affordable. You'll have appetizer or soup plus the main course. And you will just add 6 and you will get dessert. Must try it. Service is also good.

Thank Miel B

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
